In 1986, after a week in Bern, Switzerland, we drove thru France, on our way thru Germany to Sweden.

We stayed a few days in Vonnas, at La Mere Blanc, a hotel with a 5-Star restaurant, now Georges Blanc Parc and Spa.  The second photo is part of our two story suite.  Our bedroom overlooked the pool.


One of the days in Vonnas, we drove to the Abbaye Saint Philibert in Tournus.


We had dinner at Greuze - 5-Star French Restaurant in Tournus.  We had the Epicurean dinner, listed on the second photo.


After our stay in Vonnas, we drove on to Frankfort, Germany.

Trees were planted along the French roads to shade Napoleon's marching troops.
