Annecy's Return of the Animals to the Valleys Festival - Le Retour des Alpages

The Le Retour des Alpages is an annual October festival which celebrates the bringing down of the pasture animals to the valleys for the winter. The festival features a parade of the animals through the streets of Annecy, a gorgeous town in the French Alps. The festival is held in towns all over the French Alps region but Annecy’s is one of the best and was a blast to watch.

Villefranche sur Mer: Visiting the Cote d'Azur of France

The most beautiful town on the French Riviera that I've visited so far is Villefranche sur Mer. Perched between the hills and the sea, the colorful Italian architecture makes this shine like a jewel. Home to people like Tina Turner, this town is worth a visit. Be sure to check out the Fortress with Volti's Sculpture Museum, and eat some wonderful seafood too.
