Location: Le Grand Joux (5*), Essert-Romand, French Alps
Date: 27/06/15 for 2 nights
Ellis is forever searching the internet for cheap getaways but many have disclaimers: must travel between so and so dates, does not include flights or hotel is an hour away from the city. Not to knock these, but I definitely feel that the majority of the time, they’re okay at best. In May 2015 I received the standard text “check your email”. So I open up my mail and I see a link for a Groupon deal. It read “2 night stay at Chalet Le Grand Joux for £199”. Intrigued, I did my research, looked at the chalet on TripAdvisor and read the reviews. Outstanding.
