Le Voyage des Connaisseurs

 

THREE TRULY HISTORIC 12TH AND 13TH CENTURY CASTLES

 

One, a Swiss heritage of national significance, surrounded by picturesque long-established vineyards.

Another built on an enormous rock on the shores of Lac Léman (lake Geneva) was originally a Roman outpost,

guarding a strategic road between Alpine passes, still has 14th Century wall paintings and has inspired artists from Delacroix to Courbet,

and writers such as Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Victor Hugo and famously Lord Byron who wrote a poem about its dungeon

and whose signature can still be seen there!

And the third, also a Swiss heritage site, towers above a medieval town famous for cheese-making overlooking a river valley between Alpine foothills!

Here we are in the French speaking part of Switzerland – where ancient traditions have been carefully upheld and buildings meticulously preserved.

This heritage provided the setting for many of the great Bollywood films.

We will visit sites seen in films including:

1995 Yaraana

1996 Dastak

1998 Salaakhen

1999 Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain

2000 Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke

2008 Bachna Ae Haseeno
