Mountains are his passion

Living in Val d'Arly, in the heart of Savoie Mont Blanc, I love the mountains and I want to share my passion with others!

 

I grew up by the sea and came to live in the Alps by passion in 2002. Curious by nature and curious about nature. Studying the fauna, flora, geology, toponymy, and the history of our mountains is my hobby.

I have able lucky enough to visit every corner of this region and I am an active volunteer in many associations that promote and help local villages and alpine pastures.  

 

The Alps still fascinate me and working with 1786.travel seemed natural because they believe in the same values as I do - off the beaten path is the way to go.
