1 massif, 4 villages

The mountains and villages of the Beaufortain lie between the Pays d’Albertville, the Tarentaise valley and the Mont Blanc massif.

With its high-altitude summer pastures and combination of lakes and mountains, the Beaufortain is an ideal destination for a family holiday or a weekend away with friends. And if you’re a winter sports enthusiast, you’ll love this eco-friendly ski area just 20 minutes from Albertville.

Village de Beaufort dans le massif du Beaufortain en Savoie

Arêches-Beaufort, season after season

Want to get away from it all in an unspoilt natural environment? Come and breathe the pure mountain air at Arêches-Beaufort, a village resort located between 1,080 and 2,300 metres. In a typical alpine landscape, amidst verdant forests, Arêches-Beaufort has opened itself up to tourism but still retains its sense of identity and its agricultural economy.

In winter, skiers benefit from exceptional coverage across the ski area and its specially-designed snow parks – Bovoland, a boardercross endorsed by local champion Arnaud Bovolenta, and the Woodpark freestyle park, as well as La Trace waymarked ski touring trails.

Rue principale du village d'Hauteluce dans le massif du Beaufortain en Savoie

Hauteluce, overlooking Mont-Blanc

With spectacular views of Mont Blanc, the unspoilt village of Hauteluce caters for summer and winter visitors alike. Farming, essentially the production of Beaufort cheese, is still important, and the vast alpine summer pastures provide a magnificent setting for walks and hikes. Breathe the pure mountain air at 1,160 metres and explore picturesque hamlets that have preserved their built heritage including a listed church and Baroque chapels. In winter, the slopes are within easy reach – Hauteluce offers access to two ski areas: Les Saisies-Espace Diamant and Hauteluce-Les Contamines.

Queige, the countryside in the Alps

Nestling at an altitude of 585 metres, Queige is the gateway to the Beaufortain from Albertville. The village is also the starting point for some great hikes in summer and snowshoe walking or ski touring in winter. For a short break or a longer holiday in the Savoie Mont Blanc area, come and enjoy the pure air and freedom of these breathtaking natural landscapes.

Viilage de montagne, Villard-sur-Doron dans le Beaufortain

Villard-sur-Doron, an authentic alpine village

A hidden gem in the heart of the Beaufortain, Villard-sur-Doron, with its traditional houses and café tucked in next to the church, has remained a typical French alpine village. Wooden chalets line the road leading to Mont Bisanne, at 1,940 metres, from where you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic view over the Alps. Bisanne is also the village’s ski resort, with links to the Les Saisies-Espace Diamant ski area.
