MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS

A great week. Weather not perfect but Oliver varied the programme to fit. The group  of 15 had 4  'couples' and 7 singles but all laughed together at Olivers stream of jokes and stories and shared the pleasures of walking in a great area. Elanine kept us well fed and the chalet was cosy with hot tub, sauna, sky and ping pong, as well  as goats and a donkey just outside.

MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS

Great trip, hospitality by Oliver and Elaine was fantastic. Walks were brilliant with great views (when it stopped raining) and would like to go back and do the whole tour of mont blanc. We went in early June, I would recommend going a bit later in the season for better weather and for the lifts to be open. However overall a fab trip.

A fantasic week of being brilliantly looked after by Oliver and Elaine. The views and walks exceed my expectations. Chalet Savoy is a very comfortable place to stay, with everything that you need, especially a hot tub for the post walk soak.

This was an excellent trip for hikers who do not have 2 weeks to do the complete Tour de Mont Blanc.  The mountain views were fantastic.  The food was hearty home cooking.

Excellent holiday, thoroughly enjoyed the week. Five hikes with a variety of sights and different terrain. The Chalet Savoy is a perfect base for this trip and size of group. Food was fantastic (thanks Elaine) and wonderful tour guide Oliver (except the jokes).

A great summer walking holiday--some really fabulous walks. Long days though, and weather a bit variable.

These are lovely walks but the accommodation is too cramped.

Exodus Response

In the trip notes the Chalet Savoy is described as homely. The bathrooms are small because it is an Alpine Chalet and not a purpose built hotel. However, unlike a hotel the Exodus group has exclusive use of the property and with a lounge, fireplace room and dining room, we feel there is sufficient space for our groups. As mentioned in this review there are great facilities in the chalet including drying room, plentiful hot water and guests love the views from the chalet, the relaxed atmosphere and the free coffee and tea and internet. As mentioned in the trip notes a cooked breakfast is not offered and porridge is rare in French hotels, however the breakfast does include a good selection of cereals, yoghurt, eggs and croissants. Many of the reviews on this page comment on Elaine’s delicious cooking, in particular her filling cakes and packed lunches.

We are sorry to hear that Ms Coutts experienced folliculitis. The hot tub at the Chalet Savoy has been installed for 5 years now. Chemical levels are checked on a daily basis, the water frequently changed and guests urged to have a shower before using it. This is the first instance of someone registering a problem from it. We have been advised that Folliculitis is quite a common skin disorder and there are many causes other than from a hot tub. You will see from the reviews below it is very popular as guests enjoy relaxing and taking in the spectacular views of the Chamonix Valley at the same time.
