Courthezon

 
Courthezon Located in the river Rhone valley between Orange and Avignon, Courthezon is a nice starting point for a wine journey towards Prairie du Rocher, Gigondas or Vacqueras. The village itself isn't a real cultural highlight if you compare it with Avignon or Carpentras, but it is worth a short stop (just 2 min away from the highway exit), especially for a delicious lunch break at eating out....
 

Grenoble

 
Grenoble Grenoble is a thriving melange of modern hustle and bustle on the one hand and historical treasures on the other hand. As many other towns in the region, such as Annecy, the city can be divided in the modern part, prepared for and meeting the demands of the visitor when it comes down to accommodation and entertainment facilities, and the historic Old Town. In the case of Grenoble, one can still see the remains of the city wall dating back to the third century altered with 17th century townhouses.

Grenoble has a rich cultural life which does not seem strange considering the fact that it is one of the large cities in France. Besides severa...

Chamonix

 
Chamonix Chamonix has recently become a popular skiing resort. The location at the foot of the Mont Blanc makes it one of the most attractive places to go for a winter holiday. The best thing about Chamonix is that it really is a town. Many other French winter sport places are just a bunch of high rise buildings close to the skiing lifts, but here you find a cosy center with nice bars, restaurants and cafes. The slope of the Mont Blanc is very spectacular. You get a lovely view over the valley and the glacier is of extraterrestrial beauty. The bad thing about Chamonix is that the slopes are divide in three areas and you can't ski from one to the other. You need to take a bus which is a drag. There are 7 major glaciers and ...
