Savoie Mont Blanc

Savoie Mont Blanc
The Essential
In the shadow of Mont Blanc, the undisputed star of the show, Savoie and Haute Savoie constitute a patchwork of extraordinarily rich territories, landscapes and cultures. Below the high mountain area (not for novices) are the mid mountain ranges, between 500m and 2 500m altitude, which together make up a paradise for climbers, skiers, hikers and walkers.
There is no shortage of mountain culture, with audacious bell towers in Beaufortain, delicate frescoes in the chapels of Maurienne, and Baroque treasures tucked away in the churches.
Meanwhile, Annecy, Aix-les-Bains and Le Bourget du Lac, the main towns, which stand on the shores of superb lakes, boast large museums and restored old centres. All that's left to do is work out your agenda and itinerary!
