Destination

Val Cenis, an alpine exception in the heart of Savoie in Haute Maurienne Vanoise, invites you to explore its most beautiful scenery. The multiple military and religious buildings of these mountains and villages bear testament to a history that has forged the character of each of the 5 villages.
To the west, the many trails beckons hikers to discover the protected natural habitat of the Vanoise National Park, and to the east lies the border with Italy. During your mountain holiday, you absolutely must visit the Mont-Cenis pass, with its turquoise lake and mountain pastures where grazing animals produce the milk used to make Beaufort PDO, “the star of gruyère cheeses”.
