... views that stretched to Switzerland and Italy, we also got a our first full glimpse Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe (4,810m). We headed back down and spent another hour or so thawing out at the first station plan de l'Aiguille which is in the middle level. With no snow about it meant we were able to walk around and explore. It was such a great week and we were so happy to have them over and show them ...

My hotel is
right in the centre of Megeve right on the motor vehicle free pedestrian walkway.
After a good soak in a hot bath I had a couple of beers sitting out the front
of the hotel right beside the walkway. Helen and John had warned me that you
almost had to wear a fur coat to promenade in winter in this village, ...
