Albertville Mini Guide
Albertville is part of the Rhones Alpes region of France in the Savoie department. The skiing in this part of the world is excellent and that's why it was chosen as the location for the 1992 Winter Olympics. Though this is not really a tourist town but rather is geared to industry, there are some leftovers from the Winter Olympics including an ice rink which is fun for visitors. Located in the south east of France this is a beautiful scenic region where you will be glad to have a car.
The best feature of car hire Albertville is the ski packages. You will find these to be value for money as you get a four by four vehicle which is fully equipped with snow tyres and snow chains. There are even ski racks for the vehicle if you need them. Your low cost vehicle will allow you to access the Vanoise, the Bauges and the Beafortain mountain ranges among others. The commune of Albertville is built along the banks of the Arly River, though it is also close to the Isere River.
Albertville has had a unique history if not a long one having been founded mid way through the 19th century by King Charles Albert from Sardinia. However it does incorporate an old medieval town known as Conflans and so there is some very pretty, old architecture here. The old town has many quaint, traditionally French cafes which spill out onto the streets in summer and which serve warming 'chocolat chaud' on cold winter days. Car hire in Albertville is an ideal way to get around as public transport in this part of the world is unreliable.
