Notre Dame de Bellecombe Resort Information

This is an enchantingly picturesque village with a distinctive bulb-shaped bell tower that dates back to the 11th century.

Words do not do justice to the village of Notre-Dame-de-Bellecombe, with its Baroque steeple as a centre piece and traditional wooden chalets spreading over 11 hamlets. The long sunny days at Notre-Dame-de-Bellecombe are filled with traditional trade exhibitions and wine festivals as well as walks through the stunning scenery with fascinating wildlife and beautiful flowers. A local market is held every Monday morning.

This ancient farming community is made up of 11 tiny hamlets with a permanent population of only 510 people. It is situated above Flumet in the rural Val d'Arly between Megève and Albertville. (Read Mary Novakovich's review of the Val d'Arly ski resorts on The Guardian's site here.)

The landscape at Notre-Dame-de-Bellecombe consists of spruce forests, alpine chalets set on mountain pastures, and snow-capped peaks. Notre-Dame de Bellecombe is easy to get to, from the south via Albertville or from the north via Sallanches – both 25 km from the motorway exits, or by TGV and connecting buses.
