Les Elfes International Verbier Winter camp for children reviews

(17.08.2017 11:14:03) Anna
Great camp! Rested last year (we have a daughter-pogodki), the winter course of French. Very (VERY VERY!) Beautiful school and neighborhoods - all brand new, modern, freshly repaired. There are a lot of children, they came from all over the world, there were only three or four Russians. The girls liked the ski trips very much: they did not stand on skis before, but then they decided to try and were delighted.) We were a little worried, after all the sport is traumatic, but the resort is developed there, the instructors are for any level, so all Passed as best as possible. Thank you for the organized transfer: when you come with the initial level of French, it is not so easy to navigate, but here you met, conducted through the territory, everyone told and showed. We are very satisfied! It may seem a little expensive, but it's not a pioneer camp in Russia - every euro pays off, believe me.
