We enjoy a quiet night at Les Saises. We are surprised to see so many motorhomes here in the morning, the huge carpark seems full but I am prone to exaggeration. It’s a bright and sunny morning again. At 1650 metres Les Saises stands high on a plateau. Not really a mountain top, but surrounded by a series of rolling hills the vista disfigured somewhat by chairlift towers that proliferate in every direction.
We annoy our Italian neighbour by starting the Hymer’s engine at 7am to make a coffee. Why in such a huge car-park he would park less than a metre away from us at 10 pm in the evening and then proceed to have a rowdy dinner, is now his problem. In fact I feel so good about it I let the engine run for a few minutes longer than required. I am not even in Italy yet and they are already annoying me.
