In the Alps of Léman, the immaculate and preserved landscapes proceed as far as the eye can see. Here, no ski activities of the chain, and even less holidays environment spangles, but the authentic winter stays out of the beaten paths. These is a country of traditions which knew to preserve its values.

The Alps of Léman abound in strange activities (descent of the cascades of ice, harms in igloo…) and fabulous moments of relaxation offer to you (taken care in mountain pasture…), the adventure (stroll in husky, ski joëring…) or the gastronomy in our traditional restaurants or at the time of the visits around our products.

Here, the holidays are an art of living for small and large!

Discover the natural heritage

discover-the-natural-heritage

Les trois vallées des Alpes du Léman déploient leurs paysages contrastés sous l’œil attentif des montagnes alentours.

Au pied d’un rocher, au bord d’une rivière, au milieu des pâturages…si vous regardez bien, vous pourrez contempler tourbières, grottes et cascades…des curiosités naturelles que nous vous ferons découvrir avec grand plaisir.

  • On the water’s edge in the Brevon Valley :

The Brevon : The river that gives its name to our valley rises at the foot of Roc d’Enfer. It crosses the entire Bellevaux Valley, through Vailly and Reyvroz, before flowing into Les Dranses and the waters of the Lake of Geneva.

Bellevaux Waterfall : Canyoning is popular here, at the waterfall located below the village, near the Accroparc. But if it’s a relaxing stroll you’re after, you can walk on to the covered bridge.

Lullin Waterfall : Located 10 minutes from the church, it is used by deer and other animals as a water supply, hence its name, the “cascade aux biches” (“does’ waterfall”).

Diomaz Waterfall : In this delightful spot only 30 minutes from Lake Vallon, the water flows over the waterfall into natural basins in the rock. At the foot of the cascade is the Carthusians’ Cross, carved into the rock to mark the boundary of their land.

Lake Vallon : created by a landslide in 1943, Lake Vallon keeps secrets steeped in history. The lake, standing in the shadow of Roc d’Enfer between mountains and forests, delights walkers and anglers (a haven for trout). Departure point for the “Eau vive, Qui vive?” sightseeing and interpretive trail.Area: 15 hectares. Depth: 16 metres

Lake Petétoz : a mysterious, fairytale lake nestling higher up in the mountains. A one-hour walk from La Chèvrerie in Bellevaux. Angling permitted. Area: 0.4 hectare. Depth : 15 metres

  • The valley’s alpine pastures :

Take time to drink in the tranquillity of the alpine pastures. Lying at altitudes of between 1,000 and 1,800 metres and dotted with old chalets, they are reminders of the lifestyle of the farmers of the early 20th century who walked their livestock up to the pastures like the ones in Nifflon, Très le Saix, Pététoz, Chavan (2, with accommodation available in a mountain gîte), Très le Mont, Trécout, Montagne aux Sœurs, La Buchille, Pertuis etc.

Architecture and curiosities

architecture-and-curiosities
  • Anatole’s Mill and Sawmill :

Don’t miss this magical place steeped in history, thanks to Anatole Degenève. The oil mill, a listed Moulin d’Autrefois building, and its sawmill are worked by the power of the wate

  • Chapels, churches and shrines :

Erected as memorials to major events or as proof of local devotion, there are many such buildings along the roadsides and pathways in our villages.

One of the most outstanding is St. Bruno’s Chapel on the shores of Lake Vallon, built in 1651 over the ruins of the 12th-century Carthusian monastery in Vallon. Another is the Hermone Chapel (alt. 1,327 metres), built in 1489 by 52 heads of families from Vailly. Both of them are well worth seeing.

The churches in Bellevaux, Lullin and Vailly are examples of neo-Classical Sardinian-style churches in the Chablais area.

  • Saint Georges’ church in Saint-Jeoire and the Tour carrée, dates from the year 1000.

It is a Neo-Gothic style and was restored in 1988.

  • Church at Onnion

The church at Onnion was built between 1824 and 1829. The exterior painting was done in 1871 by an Italian decorator
