THE FRENCH ALPS - Châtel - Haute-Savoie Region, France

 With its valleys and mountains, open prairies, forests, lakes and alpine passes along the borders of Italy and Switzerland, the Haute- Savoy region is truly distinctive. 

Summers here are alive with the mountainous splendour of the rocks and flora, jagged bronze coloured peaks and pale limestone cliffs, swaths of silvery blue thistles, gentians and bellflowers.  And in its midst, vast nature reserves, a wonderful animal kingdom full of rams and mountain goats, marmots and other creatures great and small. 

There are plenty of lake shores and alpine pastures just waiting to be discovered, every road and path will lead you straight to history, art, peaceful villages of old and the simple unaffected hospitality of mountain folk.  

The Haute-Savoy is a land of savoir-faire where traditions are kept alive.  Here children will discover a land of character, a perfect blend of culture and nature. At every bend and corner the Alps will open up their vast horizons.

Our campers will spend their holiday in a typical mountain chalet in the centre of Châtel, an old Savoyard village with a long farming tradition. They will live among the "locals” who will share with them through different activities their knowledge of the local fauna and flora, as well as the traditions of this beautiful region of France.
