The central village and its dozens of little hamlets are waiting to welcome you here on the doorstep to the Giffre Mountains. Mountains and cliffs make Mieussy the perfect place for climbing and paragliding. Medium altitude farming adds charm to the village. Enjoy Reblochon cheese and Tomme de Savoie at the ‘Fruitière des Hauts-Fleury’. Secret places abound along the Giffre: the ‘Pont du Diable’ (devil’s bridge), canyons and hidden beaches. We know how to make people feel welcome in Mieussy, so do not miss our traditional festivals!
