Looking for some stress-free multipitch climbing grades 4-6a for summer holiday with my wife. 

Ideally bolted and not too exposed, something like Handegg, Ailedroide, or Dent d'Orlu. Also enjoyed the limestone in the Aravis. Somewhere relatively quiet would be good too.

Was thinking of Pyrenees for a change, but anywhere suitable in the Alps would do too.

Any suggestions appreciated....

You clearly know something of the Dent d'Orlu and there are enough granite routes at those grades to keep you going for a very long while, but also in Ariège there's shorter multi-pitch granite at Auzat and there has been a lot of recent development in Haute Ariège too. See http://cafma.free.fr/plan.htm for loads of online hand-drawn topos. Lots of multi-pitch limestone too in the valleys nearer to Tarascon, but in midsummer you'd really need to wait for a cloudy day for those.

Just some suggestions: Gastlosen, Bergsee,Furka & Ticino in Switzerland; Ötztal, Zillertal, Dachstein in Austria, Northern Wetterstein / Alpspitz & Berchtesgaden in Germany ...

There's loads of easy stuff (6a and below) at Le Rocher de la Chaux, near morzine. Great little crag, well bolted.
