Do you, just like me, long for the skiing season to come up? Why not just first enjoy the autumn. Light a fire (or if you don't have a fireplace candles works just as well), pour a glas of wine and read a good book under a thick, cosy quilt.
Now is perhaps the best season coming up to take a walk in the vineyards and perhaps join a fête de vendange (harvest festival). The vines turn golden, the lake deep blue and the autumn light does its best to enhance it - simply an excellent sunday hike!
