Mountains and Med (February 2011)  
Posted by Richard on Monday 21st March 2011 at 12:00 AM

For half term we headed back to France for a week with famille-Liz. Unfortunately, no time off for Uni students, so we were down to three. :-(

The week was split between the mountains and the Med. It's a hard life...

Beuil   
Posted by Richard on Monday 21st March 2011 at 12:00 AM

Base camp for the skiing was the Air France chalet in Beuil - only about an hour and a half from chez-Liz. Easy access to the slopes and an excellent spot for sledging. Click here to view this Page



Valberg

The best skiing was a few kilometres up the road from Beuil in Valberg. It was Laura's first time on skis since Banff in 2003, and she really enjoyed skiing at Liz's slightly more sedate pace. Not counting last year's disaster, Mark was only skiing for the second time - and he did brilliantly. Click here to view this Page

The route to and from Beuil took us through the magnificent Gorge du Cians. Click here to view this Page



Ventimiglia   
Posted by Richard on Monday 21st March 2011 at 12:02 AM

The Italian border is only an hour or so from chez-Liz, so Laura and I jumped on the train and headed for Ventimiglia on our first day back from the slopes. The walk up to the Cathedral was steep, but nice to escape the hustle and bustle of the market. Click here to view this Page

Our next day trip took us to Cannes, this time with Mark and Liz. Another splendid day on the Riviera. Click here to view this Page



Monaco and Cap D'Ail   
Posted by Richard on Monday 21st March 2011 at 12:05 AM

On our last day Liz drove us to Monaco, with brunch at Stars 'N' Bars being the main reason for the trip. We came back on the Basse Corniche (the old coast road), and stopped for a nice walk around Cap d'Ail. Think we've found our holiday home ... Click here to view this Page
