Les Balcons de Belledonne

3 Jun

La chaîne de Belledonne, vers le côté ouest de Grenoble, est plus connu pour ses stations de ski comme Chamrousse, Sept Laux et Collet d’Avellard. J’ai voulu explorer les petits villages Belledonnais que je vois souvent dans la distance de la vallée du Grésivaudan qui sont beaucoup plus bas en altitude, situés sur les balcons de Belledonne. Enfin, il y a quelques semaines, j’ai visité plusieurs villages, y compris Venon et Revel. Voici des photos charmantes (et une vidéo) du paradis Alpin.

The Belledonne range, which hugs the west side of Grenoble, is most known for its ski stations like Chamrousse, Sept Laux and Collet d’Avellard. I wanted to explore the little Belledonne villages that I often see in the distance of the Grésivaudan valley which are much lower in altitude, situated on the Belledonne’s balconies (okay, this sounds much nicer en français! – see post title). Finally, a few weeks ago, I visited a few villages, including Venon and Revel. Here are some photos (and a video) from Alpine paradise.

Venon (location of the infamous lonely hilltop tree that you see from the highway!)

View of Grenoble (see: Bastille) from Venon

J’adore cette ferme !

La jolie mairie de Venon

the lovely farm on a steep hill, Revel

…and now a little video of this farm in Revel that I’m obsessed with:

It is thanks to the charming Alpine farms like these that make me happy that I’m not in NYC!

    Tes belles photos me donnent envie d’aller découvrir les Alpes, car je n’ai jamais eu l’occasion d’y mettre les pieds pour le moment ! :( bonne journée :)
