get an idea of the minerals extracted from long and its neighboring peaks. then says he's fortunate that imagine sherman he was a very small simple village people had a simple life and were poor house before that and then they found out without having to climb too high up the mountain that with these rockers tools they could possibly sell them in geneva and make some money and then have a better life and. that pioneering spirit has certainly paid off for sure many tourists now flock to the village to travel with the cable car to reach a height of thirty eight hundred meters above sea level. even with the most modern technology and safety measures in place the ride is not for the faint of heart. but once at the top of the mystique of long becomes very clear during visitors can
11:39 am
dangle over the mountains in a glass box and on a sunny day you can see from miles into the distance. skiing at this altitude without parched and ports. the body to the test. is my face this is to the top of the mountain to sherman is my first visit but my husband in one nine hundred sixty six two and sixty six he climbed up here so i'm coming up to him really so i can show him the pictures when i go back to england a moment it is very beautiful because of the high altitude it is quite difficult to breathe up here. but this altitude allows visitors to see all the major peaks including the matter horn in the distance. tourism in charm and he has come a long way over the last two hundred fifty years and is now one of the most exclusive winter destinations in europe initially though tourists first started
11:40 am
coming here not for long before a seven and a half a kilometer long glacier known as the mander glass reachable by train. its europe's third biggest glacier located on the northern side of. long can also be enjoyed in the sweet form here the cafe you could see go home visitors can delight in and a rate of french pastries but the best selling ones represent the famous mountain mean fine he has owned this cafe for thirty years or chocolates are awarded winning . i know because it is so here we have the law cake i'm going to take one and we can discover it together. whatever. the cake consists of layers of chocolate mousse rum flavoring and lots of chantilly cream and if that's not enough there's another version that is just as decadent.
11:41 am
then you're. back outside the atmosphere in germany is relaxed as another day comes to an end over a month long. now to the woman climes of southern greece we're visiting an italian couple who own a holiday home there and you could call it a proper peloponnesian paradise the peninsula is the setting for many a greek myth including a hooker battle with the name ian lyon and it certainly does look magical there. i traditional greek stone cottage on the southern tip of the peloponnese peninsula . federico taso and on to nail a company from italy converted it into a holiday getaway they spend as much time as they can here in money. so normal drought to the brim and i think i'm also having money please get me in. because it
11:42 am
is interior mirrors the colors of the natural surroundings. about the callers and the choice of the course with us being very easy because we are so much in love with the money and so close to the sea as you can see outside that the concept was to capture these callers and to capture the blue of the sea inside the house so you can see that the details of the of the doors and the chairs and everything are exactly the blue of the seat and about their eyes that you can see the saying on the on the floor of the same color from the ceiling natural neutral natural color is complete the day everything. traditional regional items lent a cottage a typically greek layer. what i wanted to have it was something simple but traditional and local is something that i could find here in greece and i we went around and found this place for example they're
11:43 am
very nice. simple carpets which are also kind of look at bringing some beautiful colors in now. a couple collect stones and objects from the beach to decorate their cottage. most of all the to appreciate their unobstructed view look to see. being so close to the sea and so in love with this place that i can see it's as we know it was a dream and now it's a dream that they can believe in the morning and just to stretch myself and look at the side and see how is the weather and how is the sea and they can make into. a few meters away and they can just look at these that's great that's really great. the cottage boasts a hundred square metres of space. you can see that cannot be. made in. the same structure of the rest of the house and the laid some.
11:44 am
and you can see also here it is a functional way to have some some clothes that. the living room and kitchen merge together instead of doors there are curtains. a couple wanted to add an annex to the cottage but local authorities initially prohibited it they wanted to preserve the traditional scenery. and this was due. to piece of glass from from from down to the top and a very lean and simple hoof here so this was ok. another thing to be very good also for bringing maximum level of light from from outside into the house. is nice when that everything is light seen and you can see the light from the outside is nice the kind of exterior and interior from a nice chair is reflect the structure of the reproof and the patio except the color
