My favourite picnic spots

Fresh bread, a delicious piece of local cheese in a sandwich, why not some blueberries picked along the way and some breath-taking views! Here are my favourite places for a picnic with family, friends, or even with colleagues at lunchtime!

Picnics are a real tradition!

A picnic in the mountains, sitting on the grass during a hike or at a picnic table along a footpath, just go with the flow! We’re counting on you to remember the picnic hamper full of local produce. But before you leave, don’t forget to check the weather forecast, to make sure a mountain storm doesn’t rain on your parade.


How about we reveal even more of our hidden picnic spots to you?
