A few weeks, I visited this adorable city in Southeastern France. It’s like a real life Disneyland. I was half expecting the town to burst into a Beauty & the Beast musical number 🎶

This is a perfect place to escape for a few days or even a week. It’s a really nice balance of nature and stunning architecture.

We stayed in an @airbnb with the most breaktaking lake view. The apartment is also huge and conveniently located a 10 min walk from town but the view alone is worth booking for. It’s called Apartment 150 M2 Exceptional Lake View – really recommend
