Whirlwind trip to the Rhone Alpes and Geneva

I spent the late May bank holiday on a brief foray to the Rhone Alpes (France) via Geneva – a beautiful, tranquil part of the world. Here is a snap shot of my trip below.

Typical village house – refreshingly in this area every house looks different to the next whilst complementing one another and the natural environment.

Chalet-style house – this style of house predominates in this area, just a few miles drive from the French-Swiss border
