Chambery Mini Guide
Welcome to Chambery
Chambery has been the historical capital of Savoy since the 13th century. Located in the south east of France in valley and surrounded by mountains, it is a beautifully charming, quintessentially French town with an amazingly preserved centre. Historically it has been an important point for those crossing the Alps but today most of its travellers are of the touristic variety.
Chambery is most easily accessible by rail with connections available from most major towns in France as well as having direct cross border lines to Geneva in Switzerland
and Turin in Italy. By road you’ll need to take the A43 if approaching from the west and follow the A41 from Grenoble
in the South.
Chambery’s local airport the Chambery-Savoie is located just ten kilometres north of the town and is served by many European budget carriers especially during the winter season.
Something for all Seasons
Boredom is not an option you’ll find easy in Chambery, its fantastic location and surroundings make it ideal for all kinds of outdoor pursuits. The mountains encourage rock climbers and skiers and snowshoeing is a popular local winter pastime. Boating and sailing are popular in the summer months on the Lac du Bourget, which holds the title of the largest natural lake in all of France.
If wine tasting can be considered a sport Chambery provides a good a training ground as most of the local vineyards are open to visitors year round providing plenty of opportunity to sample the wines of Savoy.
It’s not just the location that makes Chambery such a good place to visit; the town itself has a lot to offer. Chambery hosts a very important conservation area in the centre of the town with many listed buildings and remarkable old neighbourhoods, with the ancestral castle of the Dukes of Savoy standing guard above them all.
