The Alps

Difficult to contain the Alps in a few lines. Colossal chain, bristling with summits of which more than 80 exceed 4,000 m of altitude, stretching about 1,200 km

 "La montagne, ça vous gagne !" (The mountain you will love it!), said the advertising. For once, the ad was telling the truth. It lifts you up close to the sky, with the Eagles and the Sun. It dazzles you of glaciers, needles, crystal blue and pink mountains. It crushes you in the hollow of the valleys, parades, flaws. What a Vertigo!

The Alps are Queens among the mountains, always bent,  Mont Blanc : dream of dreamers and climbers. Beautiful nature parks - Bauges and Chartreuse - and a national park (of the Vanoise), of ibex, chamois and a protected wildlife refuge. And their pearls, black or turquoise, always solitary and secret mountain lakes.

Then the village in scattered hamlets and the men, ranchers, cabinetmakers, farmers of plots short and steep.

In the Alps, small towns interfere in the valleys, arise at the edge of the Lakes, cling to the slopes.

The men decide to take care of the mountain. What are reserves and nature parks, resorts, Lakes saved from pollution.

The Loire Valley

 

In the books of history of France, 1515 is one of a few dates to remember: François Ier wins the battle of Marignano. The king of France is then only twenty years old and comes to be crowned King of France. Throughout the year, the Loire will celebrate this anniversary a spectacular cultural season.

The Loire is currently a very large number of historical monuments including its majestic castles along the River, tracing and featuring all the big and little facts of the history of France.

The territory of the Loire Valley is not only the birthplace of the splendors, presented here, are the castles of the Loire, it is also a natural territory in its own right. Fauna and Flora to discover around and along the Loire and offer the visitor a wonderful show.

If the castles of the Loire appear such witnesses to history, the river has also left its mark: around a river, of an era, cities, customs. A maritime cultural heritage of urban cultural heritage, it is all a territory who lives and tells her story.
