    "My stay with APASSION was truly wonderful and exceeded my expectations. Everything was really top-rate, starting with the beautiful spotlessly clean room. The food was delicious and I appreciated the extra effort to provide me with gluten free options, particularly the amazing cakes! I also enjoyed the yoga and massage, and the lively dinner conversations. Even though it was only for a few days, I came away totally relaxed and refreshed. Thanks again, Vicky and Rob for a wonderful stay!"

    "Thanks to Rob and Vicky for an exceptional stay at this wonderful boutique chalet with the most glorious views and brilliant hosts. Rob and Vicky could not be more helpful or attentive. Do try Vicky's stunning cooking and also one of the best breakfasts in France - proper bacon and eggs! The couple have created a bit of paradise above Samoens, a fantastic place to be based to take in this stunning part of the country. In the hot tub, overlooking the mountains, with a glass in hand, there's nothing better!"
