The Rhone/French Alps region
To the north, Haute-Savoie borders the Swiss Canton of Geneva and Lake Geneva. To the east, Haute-Savoie borders the Swiss Canton of Valais and Italy's Aosta Valley, to the west the départment of Ain, and to the south the départment of Savoie.
L'Avant-pays savoyard Haute-Savoie has the largest range of elevations of all the départments in France, the lowest point being 250 metres (820 ft) in the Rhone River Valley, and the highest Mont Blanc at 4,810.40 metres (15,782.2 ft). Some of the world's most well-known ski resorts are located in Haute-Savoie. Skiing and mountaineering are at the heart of economic activity in Chamonix, thanks to the nearby Mont Blanc.
The terrain of the départment include the Alpine Mont Blanc Range; the French Prealps of the Aravis Range, Chablais Alps, Bornes Alps, and the Bauges Alps; and the peneplains of Genevois haut-savoyard and Albanais (known collectively as L'Avant-pays savoyard). Its mountainous terrain makes mountain passes important to trade and economic health. Some of the most important are the Col de la Forclaz, which connects Chamonix to the Canton of Valais; and the Mont Blanc Tunnel, linking Chamonix to Courmayeur in the Aosta Valley.
Bernex is a charming mountain village resort, with its traditional buildings and numerous chalets spread over the plateau of Gavot, nestled between Evian, Lake Geneva and mountains.
