The food and drink were fantastic, the hosts charming and attentive and all around, we had a very nice time. V. was in cousin-heaven as he is an only child and his cousins Edi and Kurt are like brothers to him.
The next day, we had a short drive to Gruyeres where we had booked a quaint hotel on the square and ate cheese fondue for supper.
