Banquet & Excursions


Three excursions in Grenoble and the surrounding area have been planned for the 04/08 afternoon ; note that you should chose only one of these :

  • Grenoble & cable car (15€) : the visit starts with the Grenoble fortification "Bastille", and ends in the old part of the town, close to the river "Isère". From the beginning of the Chartreuse mountain, you will have a magnificent view over the Grenoble town and its valley. In the city centre, you will discover the old IIIrd century roman wall, the XIIIth century cathedral and many other beautiful places.
  • Chartreuse tour (30€) : you will go with a bus through the beautiful Chartreuse mountains to the Chartreux monastery. The monastery cannot be entered, since the monks are completely devoted to prayer. You will visit the Chartreux museum which is located 2 km below, and get back to Voiron (close to Grenoble) to the Chartreux’s cellar, a 165 metres long basement where the monks keep making their secret alcohol recipe. After a visit of this notorious place, you will try the exceptional "Père Chartreux" liquor.
  • Hiking (30€) : a half-day hiking tour in the mountains next to Grenoble, with a guide. For this excursion, you will need adapted clothing with in particular good shoes. 


The banquet will take place at the Chateau du Touvet, a beautiful French Chateau, the 5th august in the evening.
The reception will start in the beautiful gardens of the property, with the dinner held at the Orangerie.
