We booked last year and enjoyed it so much we booked again straight away for this year. As was the case last year, during our stay James was the perfect host. He went out of his way to suggest, organise and book activities and restaurants for myself and my daughter, ensuring we had a relaxed and enjoyable time. He was never too busy to answer questions or to help us out. The accommodation is very spacious and comfortable and of a very high standard with superb views of the surrounding mountains and countryside. There are so many different activities available in the local area, they kept myself and my teenage daughter occupied each and every day of our stay and when we were needing a rest from them, the accommodation offered a peaceful and relaxing base. The brand new gondolas make accessing the mountains easy for mountian biking, skiing etc. Truth be told, I'd rather not tell others how good this place is and keep it all to my self but James is such a warm, friendly and accommodating host I couldn't do it to him. We are now planning on coming back in the winter for some skiing.

We decided to book a family holiday to remember with our teenage children (16 and 18 years old) and looked for somewhere that catered for all our different interests and hobbies. We found Ancienne Poste Avajan and felt the diversity of activities and its location looked amazing. We were greeted on arrival by James who explained all the cleaning and Covid measures he had put in place to ensure that we had a safe stay. The accommodation has been finished to an extremely high standard and nothing was too much trouble. We found it extremely easy to social distance walking in the mountains, mountain biking, and swimming in glacial waterfalls. All the local activities the children took part in were extremely well organised to ensure social distancing and safety was of paramount importance. James booked all our activities for us in advance and ensured that the 9 days we stayed ran smoothly. We all had an amazing holiday, in a fantastic location with a great host and look forward to staying again.

The Art Retreat hosted by artist Jacqueline Williams was a great opportunity to spend most of the day painting 'en plein air', with the necessary art materials and equipment provided. James is great host and there was always a warm welcome upon our return at the end of a day's painting (afternoon tea is included). James also provided all the transport required and gave my non-painting husband details about local walks. The accommodation is comfortable, the food great, and there is plenty of beer, wine etc, all included in the price. Great for solo and couples.

We booked a week's stay with James. The welcome and the standard of accommodation was first class. James was excellent at keeping in touch and answering any questions we had pre-visit. He recommended and organised all our activities making it possible for us to relax and enjoy our stay. The area around the village is beautiful with many pretty towns and villages within easy traveling distance. This area is a must for cycling fans with many climbs made famous by the Tour de France within reach from Avajan. L‘Ancienne Poste is a must for all outdoor enthusiasts and James is the perfect host. We will be back for sure.

Once again, James and the team delivered a fantastic experience. The kids' skiing ability has come on hugely - they thoroughly enjoyed James' coaching, his enthusiasm and sense of fun. Coming back to a wonderfully warm and well-appointed chalet, home-cooked cake and lovely meal & wine continues to be a real treat. This is the third time that we have booked the L'Anicenne Poste and I'm sure we'll be back again.
