Welcome to Savoie and Haute Savoie in the French Alps

XXL Nature

The highest mountain in Europe not only dwarfs the Savoie and Haute-Savoie but also joins them together. It is visible from all around, a flawless focal point surrounded by spectacular natural landscapes. Since 1963, when the Vanoise national park was set up, a number of other protected spaces have brought further splendour to the environment: notably the Bauges and Chartreuse regional natural parks and another fifteen or so nature reserves. You will be impressed by the abundance of wild flora and fauna.

A feel of the open sea

There are four major alpine lakes, ancient traces left behind by the glaciers, which offer a whole range of opportunities for people to enjoy the pleasures of water. Each of the Lakes Geneva, Annecy, Le Bourget and Aiguebelette have their own distinctive character, their own “must see” and their own secrets to discover. Then there are the lakes’ typical activities – the cruise boats on one, fishing on another, rowing on the other, and finally sailing on the waters of the other… And all of them are great for swimming in! Beaches, relaxation and picnics are on the menu.

Ancient stones and delightful stories

The châteaux of Clermont, Menthon, Ripaille, Les Ducs, Miolans, Thomas II… share their age-old stories. You will meet François de Sales or the Marquis de Sade, the princes from the House of Savoy or Cavour… The ancient walls have ears and lots of memories too : before 1860, Savoie was an independent kingdom.

Exceptional eateries for exceptional times

Obviously there’s fondue, tartiflette, dried meats and a drop of dry white wine to be enjoyed in an old chalet setting ! Traditional cheese-based meals certainly keep Savoie’s customs alive. Today, Savoie Mont Blanc offers an impressive concentration of excellent lakeside or mountain restaurants as well as every type of first class accommodation. Chignin Bergeron, white Mondeuse or Persan, Savoie’s wines are award-winning and much appreciated.
