This Chateau was renovated beautifully and with great attention to detail and warmth. The owners, Jacque and Sharon were lovely and attentive. The views are stunning, the gardens peaceful and the rooms wonderful. I would stay there again and hope that others do to!

Thankgod for the human behind hey?

The sheer vistas and 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains made this optional žside trip seriously worth while. Stopping at the cairn I took many photographs and felt lucky to be on my own and not sharing either the place or the small narrow ...

The 2500 Dutch Cyclists had started to arrive in the site and the generator for the big truck started up at 7.30 am. The ride out of the D1091 was simply superb - in fact superlatives fail to describe the feeling one gets when riding on such fantastic biking roads when surrounded by magnificent mountains - part of the Hautes Alps this is one of ...
Today we had a 20.1km climb at 5.5%. It was overcast but thankfully the rain held off until we were arriving at the campsite. Our SPOT tracker has died today, so unfortunately shows us still in Guilestre! We plan to carb load now as have a huge day tomorrow up the Cime de la Bonette (2802m), a 23.1km climb at 6.5%. Yikes. Also saw our first sign to the finish line in Nice ...
