Chambéry and surroundings
Situer le secteur
Located between the Chartreuse and the Bauges mountain ranges, Chambéry offers a grandiose landscape, between mountains and lakes. Equally close to Grenoble and Annecy, easily accessible from Geneva, Lyon and their international airports, this 58 000 inhabitants city is an Alpine crossroads in Europe. Close to the ski resorts of Courchevel and Tignes, located on the shore of the Bourget Lake, and close to the Annecy Lake, Chambéry is the perfect destination for a peaceful but dynamic lifestyle. The historic center combines medieval buildings with Renaissance and Art Deco architecture. From its Elephant fountain, symbol of the city, to its castle of the Dukes of Savoy, visitors can admire its majestic cathedral and walk through its picturesque traboules. The city invests in major renovations for the future, including the recent opening of the new ultra-modern train station, connecting Paris in just 3 hours, allowing Parisians to escape to Chambéry for a weekend, as well as facilitate access to the surrounding areas.
In terms of real estate, the city presents many assets: the Place St Léger, in the heart of Chambéry, offers beautiful houses and mansions with more attractive prices than those of its neighbor Aix-Les-Bains. On the heights, the offer is varied and there is still a rural atmosphere in Chambéry-le-Vieux. Close to the Courchevel or Tignes resorts, on the shores of Lac du Bourget and near Annecy, Chambéry offers a peaceful and dynamic living environment at the same time.
