The Rhone / French Alps / Haute-Savoie region
The most visited département in the Rhone Alpes, Haute Savoie is especially rich in natural attractions, the most famous of which is of course Mont Blanc, highest of the Alpine peaks. A delightful mountain tramway takes you from Le Fayet through St. Gervais up to the lower slopes of Mont Blanc to different points depending on the season - either to ski or enjoy the alpine pastures and the views. The journey lasts for an hour. ??The Aiguille du Midi boasts the highest cable car in the world which first came into operation in 1955. The 20 minute journey takes you to 3,942 metres with a stunning panoramic view of Mont Blanc and the surrounding mountains. In Summer a cable car journey to Italy crosses over 5 kms of glaciers. In winter there are 20 kms of downhill ski trails.
The St Gervais Les Bains area
St. Gervais is a delightful old Savoyard Spa town at an altitude of about 850 metres., set amongst the pretty wooded landscape, by summer many of the winter ski slopes become tracks for mountain bikes giving this area year round appeal. This area has a lot to offer families and couples including the Mont blanc tramway. ??If you are looking for rest and relaxation in a mountain retreat with spa treatments, walking or just soaking in the views and enjoying regional food, this is for you. If you want adventure in the mountains, its all available here in a village that retains it baroque charms and architecture. ??The panorama can not fail to impress any visitor and its wonderful to see the seasons unfold their different beauty on the mountains. Opening the shutters in a morning seeing the landscape change as the clouds and light move through the day, walking through the mountains spring flowers, wiling away an afternoon sunbathing at the towns open air pool on a balmy afternoon are all part of the possibilities, whether young or young at heart.
??In summer you can walk for miles on marked paths, in meadows or high altitude, including the well loved 'balcony walks' along the Chamonix valley. Megève, the beautiful town well known by the rich and famous, can be easily reached by car within about 10 minutes or more leisurely with spectacular views via the very efficient mountain lift system. Chamonix, immediately at the foot of Mont Blanc (4807m), can be reached by car within 25-30 minutes and a visit by cable car up to the Aiguille du Midi (3804m high) near the summit of Mont Blanc is absolutely breathtaking.
