Our Summer Family Adventure weeks will be running on the weeks of the 26th July and the 3rd August of September, 2014. We will be staying at ‘The Best Eco-Lodge in the Alps’, The Guardian.
This is the original La Source Eco Lodge where it all began! We bought this farm in 2006 and renovated it with a crew of wonderful builders from around the world. We started the day with yoga at 7am, worked hard all day, played hard; climbed and biked in the evenings, and we all cooked and ate together. The builders were craftsmen who believed in ecological design and the results were fantastic. We dubbed ourselves ‘The Commune’ and the many of the crew stayed on long after the building was open to the public, as chef, and hosts, and drivers.
We ran our holidays and retreats in the spirit of ‘the commune’. Our guests became part of our extended family for the week and often came back a couple of times a season! The Guardian and Times ran articles on us, and we were the busiest chalet in the Valley with guests staying on long after the traditional summer and winter seasons had ended.
After 3 fantastic full-on years, the Eco-Lodge was bought by a private family. La Source, Green Adventure Retreats continued to run holidays and retreats from a range of fabulous Alpine venues. La Source, Eco-Lodge is occasionally open to the public, and we have hired it for 2 weeks this summer… So come and join us
Our Family Adventure Week includes 4 fully hosted and organised activity days including donkey trekking and an overnight in a mountain refuge. It costs £680 for children and £790 for adults.
We all stay and eat together at La Source.
