You can set off for walking tours of all levels directly from the hotel, without needing your vehicle. Here is a small selection to discover the surrounding villages, the mountain pastures, or a more active trek under local peaks.
30 min tour
An ideal walk to get some fresh air after lunch and enjoy a panoramic view of the valley. Go down into the village and take the path on the left at the last house. It will lead you to the recently renovated chapel overlooking the village of Ecole. After a rest, continue with a climb above the chapel and take the path back to the top of the village to go back down to the hotel.
A tour of the local villages
1.5 hour circuit
A beautiful, easy and varied circuit through forests and villages. At the pool next to the hotel, take the road that runs flat towards the hamlet of Belleville, which you will cross until you reach the cross after the houses at the end of the village. Take advantage of this unique view of the entire Bauges Valley up to the Col du Frêne. At the cross, turn right and take the path which goes through the forest to the hamlet of Précherel. At the end of the hamlet, take the path below the road on the right which will take you back to your starting point.
