Discover Chambery - The Gateway to the Alps

Chambery, a small town lying at the foot of the French Alps, which is blessed with stunning scenery and a rich historical heritage. It has plenty to offer visitors looking for a tourist destination off the beaten track.

Fine Wine and Architecture

The town of Chambery is surrounded on every side by towering mountains and the beautiful Lac du Bourget lies just to the north. But whilst the stunning alpine scenery is a major draw for visitors to the area, the town itself is full of charm. The unusual Elephants Fountain in the centre is worthy of a few photographs, as is the Chateau de Chambery, a brooding 13th century castle that was once the palatial residence of the Ducs de Savoie. And once you have had your fill of historical buildings, pencil in a visit to one of the local vineyards and sample some of the area's world-class wines.

Explore Beyond Chambery

After a few peaceful days in Chambery, no doubt you will want to explore the wider region and perhaps travel deeper into the Alps. Italy lies to the east and Switzerland to the north, so both are within easy reach via the local motorway network if you take advantage of cheap car hire in Chambery.

Car Hire
