Roughly an hour’s drive from Geneva Airport brought us high into the French Alps to Hotel Au Coeur des Prés, our beautiful chalet in the tiny quiet town of Combloux. View from our room was the peak of Mount Blanc as it danced with the clouds. (more about the mountains and the town in upcoming posts) — Photo by Jan Logozzo

Flowers, growing wild on the mountainside, in window boxes and draped over bridges, graced the landscape everywhere. — Photos by Mary O’Connor
