Carrick Roads, Cornwall

There are a number of beautiful gardens in Cornwall in Southern England. This is the view from the Trelissick estate looking down Carrick Roads towards Falmouth. Hard to believe from this vantage point but this is one of the deepest natural estuaries in the world.

Myolans Castle, France

Between Chambery and Albertville in Savoy this castle used to guard the valley from the 4th century on, a point of transit between Aosta and Vienna in Roman times.

Talloires, Annecy Lake

On your left the hotel restaurant l'Abbaye, on your right the famous Auberge du Pere Bise, a one Star Michelin. Further down the lake you can find the 3 star Marc Veyrat restaurant. With 5 restaurants with Michelin stars around the lake one just wants to stop for a while and dream of infinite means and unstoppable meals....
