Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

1 Comment

We went to the mountains in search of snow (little did we know how much we would get a few days later…)





I found an auberge on the internet in La Bresse so we booked it for 2 nights. However as the snow hadn’t arrived yet we only stayed one night and moved the other night to february.

We didn’t really mind the lack of snow as we only travelled for 1h45 to get there and knew that we could come back later on in the season.
The Auberge is lovely and just what we like, low key and homely and very affordable.
So we checked out La Bresse.

So let’s take the chairlift and see if there is more snow at the top.

Downhill mountain biking tracks for the summer. Thought of a few people who might like that. I, on the other hand would get cramp in my fingers if I attempted them!
It was such a beautiful sunny day at the top. Well worth the trip.

And back down. (It’s such a strange feeling to go down on a chairlift)
We also tried out the Luge. Pretty good even if I managed to scare myself whilst going pretty slowly.

And back to the Auberge for a nice diner and a few glasses of vino. ;))

On the way back home we stopped off at Gerardmer, which is absolutely lovely in all seasons.

And 4 days later the snow arrived….
