With 30 waterfalls on the Circuit du Sixt alone, it was a matter of time before we did actually get to one!

Our first waterfall came in the form of lovely, summer, mountain rain; pitter-pattering on the roof of the caravan. Only our third wet day since we left the UK, nearly two months ago. It was WONDERFUL! Continue reading “Wednesday – Woofs & Waterfalls!”

After our 6 hour and 1,474m epic up Marvel in Morillon on Monday, we felt beautifully beaten up – tired, but happy and in need of a good stretch…!

Since it was another dazzling day of full sun, we made plans.

Campsite Highlights

Campsite Municipal le Pelly is at the head of the Giffre valley, just past Sixt-Fer-a-Cheval. Sixt is a small village, probably more correctly a defined as a group of hamlets. It is located in a remote part of the French Alps to the east of the Haute-Savoie department. Sixt is probably better known as a ski resort; part of the Grand Massif ski area, which is the 4th largest in France. Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval is reached from Cluses via a good, reasonably wide mountain road with friendly, not-too-tight hairpins that did not pose any problem with our 40ft van-caravan combo! With the campsite at 1000m of altitude, remember to release pressure in the caravan toilet SLOWLY!
