VOIRON: Le monastère de la Grande Chartreuse

Been there, done that

Last night’s romp in the snow was curtailed by the rapid fall of darkness. This morning we headed up into the mountains proper to the base of the Grand Som peak where the Carthusians HQ lies. The public road ends about a mile below the monastery. The rest of the morning has these photos to speak for it…

  2. Your photos, and Munson's frolics, make it look like a great place! I've never been over there, but now it's on my list.
