French Holidays.

Théoule-sur-Mer is ideally located on the Esterel corniche to make wonderfull walks in the Esterel Regional Park, take a sunbath on beautiful beaches in Agay, Mandelieu or Cannes or, if you are visiting in February or March, pick a bunch of mimosa in the Tanneron Massif. But, the sun can be capricious in these early spring months and you may be lucky enough to see the Mediterranean lashing it's waves on these beautiful red rocks. In any case, like us, you won't regret your visit.

Another Forgotten Tramway

The Tramways of West Dauphiny.
Lyon-Monplaisir to Saint Marcellin and La Côte Saint André to Le Grand Lemps.

This tramway, 119 kms long, is the biggest part of the old network. It started in the Rhône in one of Lyons old tramway garages, crossed the Isère, the Bièvre plain and the Chambaran to finish at the foot of the Vercors mountains. The journey took almost 9 hours, if all went well. For the return, it took more than twelve hours. To make the journey now, it would be rather complicated, but possible, using the Transisere buses.
For me, the journey was very long, almost a year, with as means of transport the car, Google Streetview, the multitude of websites and old postcards. I invite you to follow me in my big adventure by clicking on the picture of the Pinguely 030T at the TDI station of Saint Georges d'Espèranche in the Isère.

The Chartreuse Regional Nature Park
Saint Étienne de Crossey

On the road from Voiron to the Chartreuse mountains, you will find Sainte Etienne de Crossey guarding the entrance to the gorges which are an obligatory passage. However, the village is not without interest, first from a geological point of view. As in a lot of valleys here, marshes and then bogs were formed. The "Lake Dauphin" is formed by an artificial dam in such a swamp. Here we are in beautiful dauphinois scenery. If you listen carefully you may hear the whistle of the VSB ghost tram that once passed through the village and the gorges.
