1. The lake at Le Passy in the summer months for a day out at the "beach" including swimming, boating and sun bathing. There are takeaway cafes, toilets, picnic tables and fire pits for barbeques. A good way to cool off on a hot day. No dogs allowed from May to September :(
2. A day out to Annecy (old town) on Sunday in the Summer. The Sunday market has much to offer including henna tattoos and nice shops and restaurants. The old part of town looks just like Disneys magic kingdom. Go early so daddy doesn't get stressed out trying to find a car parking space.
3. The ski run through the forest toward Vallorcine from the top of Le Tour
1. The parc de loisir (fun park) in the summer months near the montenvers train. Get there early to get the best value as there is now an entrance charge to the park rather than a charge per ride. The luge is the best but the most popular.
3. The (green) ski run at Le Flegere for jumps and off-piste (kids style) 2. The best restaurant for kids is Le Poulet (on the south side of town near the level crossing) for pizzas and spaghetti carbonara "sans oeuf" and the owner looks like Robbie Williams!.
1. Upstairs in Poco Loco having a burger and "hanging out" with all the boarding dudes.
2. Cycling into town because you can "free wheel all the way there"
3. The ski safari from Flegere to Brevent and back. Mainly greens and blues.
1. The Paradis des Praz (behind the Golf Course at Les Praz) in the summer months for pony rides, zip wires and playing in the little lake. A cheap day out for Daddy!
2. The ski run down from Grand Montets back to town (red). Don't leave it too late in the day as it gets very busy.
3. The meat peirrade at Brasseire L'M. Cook your own food on a hot stone - Great if you don't like cheese fondues and the owner looks like Mr Big out of sex in the city!
Ben (the dog)
1. Having snowball fights in the garden with the kids.
2. Beings allowed into all the restaurants in the town instead of hoping for a doggie bag when the family get home.
3. The walk up to Chalet Floria along the footpath from the back of the chalet (in the summer) and running through all the streams.
