The Rhone/French Alps region
Together with the Haute-Savoie, Savoie is one of the two departments of the historic region of Savoy that was annexed by France on June 14, 1860, following the signature of the Treaty of Turin on March 24, 1860.
Savoie is part of the Rhône-Alpes région. It borders the departments of Haute-Savoie, Ain, Isère and Hautes-Alpes in addition to Italy.
Much of Savoie is covered by mountains: Bauges Massif, Chartreuse Massif, Vanoise Massif, Beaufortain Massif.
The department is crossed by the Isère river, which has its source in the Iseran pass. Its two main lakes are Lac du Bourget (the largest and deepest lake entirely in France) and Lac d'Aiguebelette, one of the least polluted in France due to a 1976 law forbidding any use of motorboats on the lake.
Savoie is famous for its cows, which produce numerous cheeses, some of them are: Beaufort, Savoie Gruyère, Reblochon, Tamié, Tome des Bauges, Tomme de Savoie.
Numerous wines are also grown in Savoie. The most famous are made of Gamay, Pinot noir and Mondeuse grapes. Fruit production is the third largest component of agriculture in Savoie. Apples and pears are also produced in the region and are well known for their qualities.
Overall, the region offers an excellent blend of activities ranging from extreme sports to culture, gastronomy and vine. This is as well a dynamic region from an economic perspective with 3 major poles of business activities: Chambery/Aixles bains, Annecy, Grenoble.
The property is located in Gilly sur Isere, 5 mn away from Albertville where the Olympic Games 1992 were organised and classified "Town of art and history". This is "La Combe de Savoie", the heart of Savoie and the world most prestigious ski resorts such as les 3 vallees (Courchevel, Meribel, Les Menuires), Les Arcs, La Plagne, Espace Killy (Val d'Isere, Tignes), Megeve or less known but equally attractive (Areches, Valmorel, Notre dame de Bellecombe, Les Saisies, ...). All this resorts are maximum 45mn away from the house and the closest (one 20mn).
