MdC met us with a beautiful winter landscape, just like on the postcards. We have been very well treated here in Hotel St. Raphael with fantastic food and wonderful personal. Close to everything; skiing, walking, shopping etc. The weather has been mostly sunny, but we had two days of light snowing.
The village still have the Christmas decorations, which gives it a lovely atmosphere.
MdC also offers a little bit of history. Here the Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph built a Hunting Lodge, which today is a hotel, Relais des Alps. Inside you still see the beautiful Art Deco/Empire style and the wall painting in what today is a kind of theatre, but earlier was the ballroom. The wall painting was made by Gottfried Hofer.

And a last panoramic view!
