LIVING IN SAVOY AND HAUTE-SAVOIE
The historic capital of Savoy, the city of Chambéry has 56 000 inhabitants. At the gateway to the Alps, it enjoys an excellent geographical location, between lakes and mountains.
Thanks to its numerous infrastructures (theatre, cinemas, concert hall, media library, Galerie Eurâka, Chateau of the Dukes of Savoy and many others), it has a rich cultural and artistic heritage.
Located in the Northern pre-Alps, the city of Annecy has 50 000 inhabitants. Nicknamed "the Venice of the Alps " because of the small bridges that span the three streams running through its old town, this tourist and industrial centre is distinguished by its large lake. Its castle, its Palace of the island, its Conservatory of art and history are all curiosities to discover.
