The Rhone/French Alps region
Savoy was not part of France until 1860. As a consequence, it has a very distinct character. Our builder proudly proclaims he is Savoyard not French!
About an hour from the chalet is Lake Geneva where you can bathe, sail to Switzerland or take the waters at Evian-les-Bains.
To the South, the white mass of Mont Blanc dominates Chamonix. You can take a funicular half way up - the initial plan was to build it to the top but they ran out of money!
Italy is about an hour away through the Mont Blanc tunnel.
Annecy make a great day out - wander round the old town, lie on the beach and take a boat to the other end of the lake.
