Gruyères, Switzerland

The Greyerzer (Gruyère) region, with its rolling green landscape and the peaks of the Fribourg Pre-Alps, is home to the world-famous Gruyère cheese. The picture-book little medieval town of Gruyères is perched atop a small hill.

I was lucky enough to visit this settlement in November 2014, and was blown away by the picturesque and original nature of the all of the buildings and surrounding landscape.  The only obvious deviation was the fantastic Giger Museum and Bar, tastfully nestled among the centruies old, cobbled laneways..
