Au Fidèle Berger in Annecy, France – Celebrating 100 Years!

Au Fidèle Berger in Annecy, France – Celebrating 100 Years!

When I first arrived in Annecy without any French language, and in need of prescription glasses, I noted Au Fidèle Berger, as a land mark.

Conveniently located on the corner of 2 Rue Royale, in the center of Annecy, this location was were I could remember how far the lake was, how far the bus was, and not be too lost. The windows were welcoming, the outdoor tables, charming and the name read, “the faithful burger.”

While that may seem insulting now that I know the actual name and meaning, at the time it was endearing.  I was homesick and seeing the ‘faithful burger’ made me smile.

After I got some much needed reading glasses, and visited inside, I realized that my faithful burger landmark was ‘Au Fidèle Berger‘. This translates to “the faithful shepherd.”  This is no ordinary chocolatier or patisserie, this is an Annecy landmark.

I saw an event called BeFit being advertised so this past weekend, I attended the BeFit event at the Grand Port in aix-les-bains, France.  The location was ideal. Aix-lesbains, aka, the Alps Riviera is located on Lac Bourget and is nestled between the French Alps and the Jura mountains.

Luckily, the weather was great too! Hot enough to paddle board and swim and but cool enough for a run. There is little humidity in the French Alps which makes it very pleasant.

They’re made in France, they’re red and they’re +3 inches high… they’re my snowshoe louboutins.

Ski season is coming to a close but it is still a good time to snowshoe, or as they call it in French, “Raquette.”

Last weekend, I went to the snow covered Semnoz to snow shoe with friends my HUBFF (husband and friend forever). I love the Semnoz for a variety of reasons, one of them being the views!

The Semnoz had 360 degree views of mountains and
