Not far from Albertville and Megève and on the route of the Grandes Alpes between Col des Aravis and le Col des Saisies, at 1000m above sea level, Saint-Nicolas La Chapelle is a small traditional village at the heart of Val d’Arly, one of Savoie’s best preserved valleys.


In the land of Reblochon and Beaufort, mountain agriculture is thriving, landscapes are open, tourism is respectful of the environment and there’s a natural and friendly welcome. Life is lived in step with the rhythm of the seasons, between forests, mountain pastures and imposing peaks.
