Maison Coutin, Bourg St. Maurice

Close to the Italian border, we are now higher in the mountains, near where the Winter Olympics was once held, in a quaint town called Peisey-Nancroix.  Endless clusters of neighbouring communities, full of very fit people highlighting a lifestyle different from our own! Nevertheless, we joined the lifestyle, jumped on two very efficient chair lifts (plus some decent walking) and found ourselves viewing Mont Blanc in all its majesty surrounded by cows grazing and their cow bells chiming.

Three days later, it was surreal for us to leave the French Alps and travel by car down the mountain to the local village where we took a train to Chambery, then on to Paris and a couple more train exchanges, finally arriving in London on the same afternoon by Eurostar.
