Notre-Dame de Bellecombe

Notre Dame De Bellecombe is one of the most picturesque of all the French alpine resorts nestling just above Flumet in the splendid surroundings of the Val d'Arly.

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

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 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 in Notre-Dame de Bellecombe.

The town of Notre-Dame de Bellecombe and its charming inhabitants offer many facilities, including a theme park to learn more about life in the mountains, archery, childrens play parks, horse and pony riding, tennis, Street Hockey, Basket ball, Badminton, Volleyball, Mini golf and, of course, many delightful restaurants and bars.

Golfers can enjoy the diversity of 3 golf courses in the surrounding area, a 5 hole training course with driving range and putting green, and an open air driving range with instructors available. There are 16 marked footpaths and 27 mountain bike trails with varying levels of difficulty. The Lac chairlift opens twice a week for walkers and mountain bikes to get closer to the fabulous views of Mont Blanc.
