We arrived in the Savoie – high up in the mountains for a week’s holiday yesterday evening. Tried out a few Apremonts – perfect summer drinking. The temperature today climbed to 36 celcius, but with a light mountain breeze. We have stunning views from the gite.
Had a good shop in the village this monrning, and picked up a large shoulder steak of pork, currently marinating before going on th barbecue, a few beers including a green beer (a local speciality, flavoured with genepi or artemesia, also used in nearby Chartreuse) a bottle of Roussanne and Mondeuse). It all looks very promising.
