Travel Guide

Chambery which includes heritage architecture, a fountain and street scenes

With gastronomy, culture, heritage and skiing, the historical capital of the Duchy of Savoy has everything you could want for an all-encompassing holiday.

Chambéry is situated in the Rhône-Alpes region, in the heart of the mountains, between the Bauges and Chartreuse ranges. Now the capital of the Savoie department, Chambéry has been awarded "city of art and history" status for the care it has taken to preserve its urban heritage. The city's calendar includes numerous cultural events and it offers an array of high-quality traditional Savoy cuisine. It also makes an excellent stop-off on the way to the nearby ski resorts.

Take a pretty walk through Chambéry and discover the historic city centre, the Château of the Dukes of Savoy and Chambéry Cathedral, which is home to a splendid collection of religious artefacts dating from between the 12th and 19th centuries. The Museum of Fine Arts is renowned for its prestigious collection of Italian paintings. Chambéry is also well known for its festivals, the most famous being Les Estivales du Château and the Savoie d'Jazz festival. Your taste buds will be kept busy with delicious local dishes like fondue and tartiflette, which you can try in many of the town's restaurants.

Ski lovers can enjoy easy access to a great many resorts from Chambéry, from the smaller family-friendly resorts in the Bauges to the large resorts of the Tarentaise Valley. You can even go for a day trip by jumping on an Altibus shuttle which offers all-in ski and bus packages for a great day out on the slopes!

The town is served by Chambéry-Savoie Airport, which has numerous routes to airports in the UK. You can also get there by high-speed train, arriving at Chambéry-Challes-les-Eaux railway station. The town itself has a large network of cycle lanes, which makes it a friendly place for getting about by bike. You can also make use of the local bus network.

There's just one thing missing from the culture, cuisine and sports on offer in and around Chambéry – you! Make the most of all this location has to offer, whatever time of year you decide to come.

"Unfortunately we spent a very short time in the hotel. When we arrived the lift smelt of urine. We had to return to Macot for a forgotten item. The lift smelt cleaner during the night time use. Room was clean but very hard bed."

Next to train station, but budget hotel
"Hotel was directly across from train station, which was convenient. My room was supposed to have a tub but didn’t, room was not that comfortable and the hotel definitely feels like a budget hotel, so not good value. Folks across the hall were loud and had a dog that barked. Not a great experience ..."
