Fotos From France

The Bridge

I was recently on holiday in France. Here I share some of the photos from this.

Le Parmelan

Le Parmelan is a mountain above Annecy. It makes for a very good walk, providing you like a proper hike up. If not, there’s a road which you can take that leads up to the restaurant Chalet de L’Anglettaz.

Annecy

The city of Annecy is a nice visit. A nice old town with small alleys and canals, with the modern city surrounding it. Access to the lake for swimming, and enclosed in a mountain valley.

Gorges de Fier

Following the Annecy-Aix rail line you can find Les Gorges de Fier. A series of impressive gorges with bridges along the cave sides you can walk along. There is also Monttrottier Castle nearby, if you like to explore old buildings.

Aix-Les-Bains

Aix is another old city in the region, this one favoured in the past by travelling Victorians for its hot baths. This too is built around a lake and surrounded by mountains.

Animal Picture Tax

Can’t have holiday snaps without some animals. Insects of varying sizes, lizards and cats.

Near Andilly

Around where I was staying (Andilly), there is lots of forest. With waterfalls along the river in the woodland, there is also a “scarecrow park” with some treetop bridges, amongst other attractions.

La Caille

A short drive away there is also Le Pont de la Caille. An old suspension bridge, stretching out over a deep gorge. Quite an experience to walk over.

Vuache & Rhone

The river Rhone passes through this region of France. There are plenty of places to get nice views of it, one in particular is a steep walk up La Vuache.
