With more than 110 ski resorts spread out in 11 massifs, 17 connected ski areas (Les 3 Vallées, Espace Killy, les Portes du Soleil, Grand Massif...) and famous ski resorts like Méribel, Val d'Isère, Flaine, Chamonix... Savoie Mont Blanc is the largest ski area in the world.
In winter, with a wide range of ski resorts, there is something for every taste an every style. Whether you're skiing as a family, are interested in the latest mountain sports, nordic or downhill ski areas, picturesque villages or "Holiday-Club" type resorts, there is one resort for you.
All Savoie Mont Blanc ski resorts also have their hotels or dedicated spa areas. Spa offer a wonderful combination of snow and relaxation: Turkish bath, health and beauty treatments with essential oils extracted from mountain flowers…
In the summer, Savoie Mont Blanc is a giant outdoor playground where it is possible to practice pretty much any sport you can think of: walking in nature parks in the Vanoise National Park, or the Regional Parks of les Bauges and Chartreuse are ideal places to enjoy breathtaking views and watch ibex, chamois mountain goats, marmots or royal eagle.
But you can also enjoy biking, rafting, via ferrata, golfing or swimming in one of the 4 big lakes - Annecy, Bourget, Geneva, Aiguebelette - where waters can easily reach 24°C!
Don’t miss: Visiting towns like Annecy, Evian, Chambéry, Aix-les-Bains… with their charming pedestrian zones, castles, churches, typical food markets…
To satisfy your appetite, there are some absolute classics: tartiflette, fondue, gratin de crozets, cheeses, saucissons…but with more than 20 Savoyard chefs awarded stars by the Michelin Guide (their restaurants are either in ski resorts, down in the valley, or on the shore of the lakes) Savoie Mont Blanc is also a great gastronomic region.
Also to be discovered: a stunning wine route which stretches from the Combe de Savoie to Lake Bourget up to lake Geneva and the Chablais region, mixing fantastic and various types of landscapes.
