What's the plan?

We'll stay in a very charming and comfortable "chalet" isolated on top of a mountain (there are just 2 other chalets next by). Here are the ingredients of the week: hiking, collecting mushrooms, cooking ad eating all together around a big table, having some rest, reading, playing board games, getting in the outdoor hot tub ad watch the stars or whatever else you want to do. Everyday, I will offer you to go for a different hike in the region (long ones or short ones) and everyone can choose to go for the hike or stay at the chalet and relax. 

Note that the hikes may vary according to external/weather conditions):

Accommodation & Meals

We’ll stay in a typical "chalet Savoyard". It's an old farm that has been rearranged with love in a big and comfortable house. The house is full of good vibes. There are 4 doubles rooms and a dormitory with 5 single beds. We'll buy the groceries together and cook together. There is a big kitchen with a nice table for 15 people and a great garden with amazing views and a cosy outdoor hot tub.
