We visited the monastery earlier today. The drive to the monastery is not for the faint hearted but very exciting with sheer drops - as the monastery comes into view on the drive up it is incredible to see how it nestles into the side...More
Enjoyed spectacular views and a lovely walk here . The Chatreuse has been beautifully restored and it's such a peaceful and reflective place. The drive was a little on the scary side but some may find it exhilarating . We did a short 3.5 mile...More
