Management response:

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, Penny. I'm happy that everybody enjoyed themselves and that you'd like to return.

I love the location too, right there along the fabulous Tour de Mont Blanc trekking route, that takes you through Italy, Switzerland and back through France. There isn't a season that is best there. I look forward to having you try winter next time!
