Grenoble

Grenoble, the old capital of the Dauphiné, is beautifully situated in a basin in the Isère valley, surrounded by mountains on three sides. It is very pleasant, but not particularly exciting.

    Annecy
    Jun 30, 2009

    Annecy claims to be the most romantic town in France and we actually believe it. The tiny old town and the lake front possess a very special atmosphere, sort of like a box of nice chocolates.

    Around lake Annecy
    Jul 1, 2009

    We rented bicycles and went around the lake - about 30km. It took us all day with many stops along the way. The west side of the lake has a good bike path, while on the east side you ride on a narrow hilly road. But it goes right by the lake and has better views than the bike path.
