    Monday-Thursday-Challes Les Eaux

    Savoie is bordered by Switzerland and Italy, and is known for the majestic mountain scenery, the sparkling waters of the serene lakes, the elegant spa towns and the local produce (especially the cheeses)! We tour this beautiful area, visiting Chambery, a lively town with an interesting historic centre and Aix Les Bains, situated on the shores of Lake Bourget and famous for its hot springs and beautiful Belle Epoque Hotels, illustrating the town’s prestigious past. We include a boat trip on Lake Bourget to enjoy the fabulous scenery. We travel to Annecy, known as ‘The Venice of the Alps’, and meander along the canals and cobblestone streets of the old town, lined by pastel houses and bright flower boxes. Close to Annecy is the unique Secret Gardens in Vaulx and we include a visit to the surprising mosaic of gardens, patios and galleries. We visit Grenoble, haloed by the mountains, and the ‘Capital of The Alps’. Grenoble unites city pleasures with breathtaking nature and the River Isere flows through the centre of this lovely city.
