    French Alps - Beaufort, Albertville

    April 20, 2016 in France ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    We decided to visit the little towns around Quiege on our first morning at the French Alps. Beaufort and Albertville sit on either side of Quiege and were only 15 mins drive away.

    We came across a market in Beaufort. The day had already started beautifully! As is typical of markets in France, fresh produce was sold in abundance. This market also sold cured sausages of different flavours, cheese and olives. There would be no bargaining at this market. All the prices were written on chalkboards. 1 sausage for 4 Euros, 4 sausages for 10 Euros. What a difficult decision to make!

    Next, we stopped at Albertville. This town is a lot bigger than Beaufort. Not many shops were open but we found a cafe to sit in and have some coffee and a beautiful chocolate crepe.

    We head back to our home in the Alps to enjoy some roast chicken and rice for dinner.
