The day starts with an Italian breakfast, orange juice & really good coffee, fresh fruit, cereal & yogurt, toasted ham & cheese sandwich and cake & biscuits!! Our host insists on driving in front of us to the autostrada, we have quite a few miles to do today so we need to keep on the main roads for a while and we pay over 30€ in toll charges. We drive through the centre of Genoa and then back on the autostrada, through Monaco and into France. We stop in Nice to do a bit of shopping and fill up the car. Then we head inland and slowly climb up the Alps, the views at 3000ft are breathtaking but the roads are narrow with a sheer drop on one side. It takes quite a while to get up to Puget-Rostang and our hotel,
Auberge Du Riou in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence, it is much cooler here although it has been cloudy all day. We have a ground floor room this time and because it's taken us a while to get up here we decide to eat here tonight.
We take a walk around the village and the sun has just decided to come out; it is a beautiful but remote place and we have a delicious meal in the auberge restaurant although we don't manage to eat it all.Read more
