Set against the spectacular natural backdrop of the French Alps, ChambĂ©ry combines a colourful cultural scene with easy access to some of Europe’s most famous mountain resorts. 

Cultural connections

It might be best known as a gateway to the Alpine ski villages, but ChambĂ©ry’s delightful medieval centre and distinguished history make it a true cultural gem. Wander through the sleepy squares and secret courtyards of the OldTown, take a tour of the medieval ChĂąteau des Ducs de Savoie, or explore the perfectly preserved home of 18th-century philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau (890 chemin des Charmettes). The town’s archaeological heritage is traced in the MusĂ©e Savoisien (Square de Lannoy de Bissy), while the recently renovated MusĂ©e des Beaux-Arts (Place du Palais de Justice) houses a range of Renaissance masterpieces.

Outdoor adventures

ChambĂ©ry is an adrenaline junkie’s dream destination, with ski resorts such as Aminona, ChampĂ©ry and Rougemont just a short drive away. The warm waters of nearby LakeBourget are perfect for waterskiing, swimming, diving and sailing, while the lush foothills around the town are criss-crossed with hiking trails and bridleways. Hire a mountain bike at the VĂ©lostation (Parc du Verney) and complete the scenically splendid Lake St-AndrĂ© bike loop, or enjoy a relaxing round of golf at 16-hole course Golf Club d’Aix-les-Bains (95 avenue du Golf).

Grape expectations

A holiday to ChambĂ©ry from Glasgow Airport represents the perfect chance to discover the Savoie’s small but highly productive wine region. Vineyards such as the Cave de Chautagne (Ruffieux) and Cave du PrieurĂ© (Jongieux) offer tasting experiences, and you can sample the local vintages in style at upmarket ChambĂ©ry bistros L’Atelier (59 rue de la RĂ©publique) and CĂŽtĂ© MarchĂ© (60 rue Vieille Monnaie). Wine, fresh produce and regional specialities are all on sale at the lively covered market Les Halles de ChambĂ©ry (Place de GenĂšve).
