Just 4 hours from our chalet and you’re right on the Italian Med – Bliss!!

August 24, 2013

Having driven down to the Costa Brava for our Summer holidays last year. This year we decided to make the shorter journey, through the Mont Blanc tunnel to the Liguria region in Italy. The road between Genoa and Nice is spectacular, built into the Maritime Alps and sitting a couple of hundred metres above the sea – it really is a fantastic drive!! Bartolomei al Mare and Diano Marina are located just off this road, about 30 mins from Genoa and right on the sea.

The pictures below tell of our adventures on the Italian Med.


Does it look like May or early March to you?

The below pictures were all taken in or around Morzine last weekend. Just crazy weather!! Saturday it snowed virtually constantly all day at village level. When we woke up on Sunday morning the surrounding mountain scenery looked just like mid Winter! And, boy was it cold.
