Les Saisies (Mont Blanc) Information

Half-way between the 'Beaufortain' and the 'Val d'Arly' valleys, two magnificent Savoy areas,  offers a spectacular setting with glorious views across to Mont Blanc. The 'Beaufortain' region, with its wonderful scenery, is sometimes called 'The French Tyrol'.

Les Saisies itself sprang to international prominence during the 1992 Winter Olympic Games at Albertville in the French Alps. It’s a charming French ski resort with timber-clad chalets and a bustling high street complete with some 40 shops and a big selection of bars, crêperies, grills and restaurants offering delicious Savoyard dishes.

There are actually two villages in Les Saisies: Hauteluce (Village de Lessy) and Bisanne 1500 (Hameau du Beaufortain).

With its 360-degree panorama ranging from Alpine meadows to the snow-capped summit of Mont Blanc in Beaufortain, Aravis, and close to the Chartreuse Mountains, Les Saisies offers stunning scenery and the chance of wonderful discoveries. The ski resort of Les Saisies is a set of typical Beaufortain villages, where visitors can enjoy both the architecture and their traditional way of life.
