5 reasons to stay in the French Alps this Spring
Updated: Mar 29
The Alps are often associated with skiing, snowboarding and winter fun, but there is so much to offer once the snow melts. Nik, owner of La Maison du Loup in the Pre-Alps just above the coast, fell in love with the area whilst paragliding. She was struck by the fantastic scenery, the calm, the proximity to all the amenities of the coast, and the charming local people who welcomed her with open arms. Make memories in the Mountains this Spring !
Here are just 5 reasons that you too will LOVE 😍 the PACA - Provence Alps Cote d’Azur – area as much as the hosts at La Maison du Loup.
