We stayed for a week in a chalet...
...in the Val d'Abondance.
This is in the Haute Savoie region of France, in an area of lakes...
[Lac de Montriond]
...and, of course, of beautiful mountains
[Pointe de Dreveneuse]
[Dents du Midi]
[(distant centre) Roc d'Enfer]
[Mont Blanc, viewed through les Dents Blanches]
...we also visited Switzerland a couple of times, including Geneva...
...and a day trip to Zermatt...
...and of course, up to the Schwarzsee to admire the Matterhorn...
...where we realised that there are people far more daring than us!
At the end of our week, we headed north through Alsace, for an overnight stop in the beautiful village of Riquewihr...
...one of the highlights of the visit being the end-of-day firework display.
Before returning home, we had a couple of days at the seaside in Le Touquet. Unfortunately the weather deserted us, but Alice didn't mind
