Les Saisies

The setting of Les Saisies is spectacular as it lies half-way between the 'Beaufortain' valley and the 'Val d'Arly' valley, two magnificent areas of Savoy, with views towards Mont Blanc.

The 'Beaufortain' with its wonderful scenery is sometimes called' The French Tyrol'. The village itself is charming with wood clad chalets and a bustling high street complete with some 40 shops and a big selection of bars, pubs, pizzerias, crêperies, grills and restaurants offering the choicest Savoyard dishes.
