The Chateau Menthon-Saint-Bernard backed by the cliffs and peaks of the French Alps.

This is yet another painfully beautiful castle in the area. This one, however, is open for tours during the summer which indicates that the owner couldn't afford to pay all of his taxes on this place.

If you look in the upper right corner, you'll see a speck of a paraglider enjoying the view from near the peak of one of the nearby mountains.
