In Courmayeur, we saw Mt. Blanc from the Italian side. Our hotel near Mageve, had a beautiful view of it from the French side. We were in an area known as the “Pays du Mont Blanc”. Translated, it means the country of Mt. Blanc. It is a group of villages and resorts perched along valleys at the foot of the Domes de Miage, the Aiguille du Bionnassay and the east side of Mont Blanc. It is on the bordering Haute Savoie and the Savoie regions/departments of France. Megeve, St Gervais and Les Contamines are located in the “Pays du Mont Blanc”.
The area has wonderful views of the Mont Blanc Massif. I don’t know if I will ever get used to panaromas like this. I kept running out on the balcony to snap pictures as the light changed. Quel beaute! Quel joie!
