“We experienced a delightful relationship with Floriane and Benoit and tremendously enjoyed their home in Chambery and the close proximity of the location to other countries to visit. We toured the Chambery area which was wonderful and also visited Switzerland and Italy. Floriane and Benoit treated our home and car with care and we experienced no problems. The easy exchange afforded a perfect vacation for both of us and we hope to keep in touch with Floriane and Benoit.”

Where is it?
Chambéry, capital of Savoie, has a lot to offer in terms of museums, restaurants, night-life. A middle-sized town of about 100000 inhabitants, it has two markets per week, excellent shopping and three cinemas that you can walk to from our house.
You will love the Italian atmosphere of its "pedestrian centre" (it used to be Italian until about 150 years ago) and you will also marvel at the surrounding villages in the mountains about 25 min drive away!
We are very lucky to live right across the public "outdoor" swimming pool and there are two big parks about 5 minutes drive from our place.
Savoie and neighbouring Haute Savoie are best known for their impressive mountains (le Mont Blanc - and its cablecar for all ages!) and their miles of hiking trails, and also for their lakes (lac d'Annecy, lac du Bourget et lac d'Aiguebelette...) where you can swim and cool down after a good day's hike.
If you're more into towns and culture, go to beautiful Annecy and Chamonix or head to Lyon, France's 2nd biggest city (1hr drive) or Grenoble (45 min drive). Finally, Savoie is very close to Switzerland - with Geneva only 45 min away) and Italy- Torino is 2hours away.
Public transportation is really good in France and usually saves a lot of trouble (no need to stress over parking!): trains will take you just about anywhere, including all European countries.
