What is French Culture Week?

After years of success running our popular Greek Culture week in Samos, we are looking forward to spending this week with you on a journey of discovery through the rich culture and history of the French Alps.

The Savoie region, where our chalet is situated, is an area rich in French culture. Taste the local Savoie wines, cheeses and meats, discover the area’s fascinating history and learn about local traditions!


Here is a taste of what will be running over French culture week:

  • Cheese and Wine – with a chance to see how these local delicacies are produced and the opportunity to taste the finished products!
  • Flora and Fauna – a guided walk around the local area looking for the famous whistling mountain marmots!
  • Fondu night and cooking demo at a local restaurant
  • Visit mountain refuges and churches including the Notre Dame de-la-vie.
  • “Become a shepherd" for the morning at Chez Pepe

Just to note, some of these excursions will be running at an additional cost.
