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!

It's been a perfect day, the trees are turning Autumn colours and although it's 26 degrees there's snow on the high tops. Briancon has this amazing fort built to keep the Italians out many years ago. Tomorrow we go over the mountain to Italy toward ...
... said "this is what it is all about" as I enjoyed the great road, mountainous scenery and flowing twisties. Each turn put me closer to my destination of the highest road in Europe. Passing only a couple of cars and bikes as I approached the summit my Garmin Sat Nav showed that I still had 400 metres to climb. Old military forts and machine gun posts revealed the violent history and reason for these roads existence became evident. The road dates back to 1860 and Napoleon III. The ...
