Savoie is a department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region. With almost 90% of its territory in the mountains, it is the second most mountainous department in France. It took its final size in 1860. Savoie is surrounded by the departments of Haute-Savoie, Ain, Isère and Hautes-Alpes and borders Italy. It includes 2 mountain ranges: the Alps and the Jura, has the largest ski area in the world: Les 3 Vallées and has no less than 60 ski resorts, most of which are internationally renowned. Three natural parks make up Savoie: the Vanoise National Park, the Bauges Regional Park and the Chartreuse Regional Park. The 2nd generation resorts were created in Savoie in 1936 with Alpe d'Huez. The 3rd generation resorts are ski in ski out and the village is located at an altitude of about 1800 metres (among them Tignes and Val Thorens).
To recapture the charm of the old-fashioned mountain, 4th generation resorts, also known as "village resorts", have been created. This is the case of Valmorel and Valloire in Savoie. Winter sports therefore represent the vast majority of the activity. Savoie is renowned for its wide open spaces in the middle of nature, its calm, its gastronomy, its crafts and its traditions.
