Chambéry

 

Chambéry, the historical capital of the county of Savoie is a town rich in culture with its wide pedestrian avenues and many shops. The Saturday morning market, the carillon and the monthly antique market give an authentic feel to the town. Chamberiens are very welcoming which makes Chambéry a nice place to stay. Chambéry’s resources are mainly from its local shops and businesses which attract the population of the surrounding valleys.
 As a university town, Chambéry is calmer in the summer when the students have gone home.

Between 2 national parks and only 20 minutes on bicycle from the Bourget Lake, Chambéry is perfect for nature lovers and outdoor people.
