Areas similar to Bernese Oberland?

Jump to last reply

We visited the Bernese Oberland area last September (stayed in Wengen) and completely fell in love with the region and its scenery...who wouldn't right? This year we are planning another European trip for October. We plan on flying into Barcelona, renting a vehicle, and driving through Southern France, and into Italy (western side).

I understand the Bernese Oberland is the heart of the Swiss Alps and will be hard to beat, but can you suggest any other areas similar to this with the breathtaking views, mountainside villages, etc. anywhere on our route (or within 3-4 hrs detour) that would have similar views? Maybe somewhere in the Pyrenees? Or maybe the area about Turin? Chamonix looks gorgeous but I think that might be a bigger detour than we want to make.
