Tour of Les Vallons
- This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
Guided tour of the rural heritage in the villages of Les Vallons. Breathe in the fresh air in this pretty little valley where the scenery is dotted with farmhouses and outbuildings such as barns, vegetable plots, sheds and orchards.
See the fountains and the 17th-century chapel.
All along the way, the Guides du Patrimoine Savoie Mont Blanc will give you insights into the everyday life of a village that has discreetly embraced tourism as a means of keeping itself alive, while continuing with its traditional crop and livestock farming. See the traces of the masons and stonecutters of the Upper Giffre Valley and follow in the footsteps of the first tourists, in the 19th century.
For school parties (kindergartens or primary schools), special interest tours can be arranged by request e.g. the use of timber in rural housing, finding out about rural housing and drawing what they see all along the walk etc. If you have any particular requests, please contact Violaine well in advance of your visit.
