Traditional Savoie Village
In this region, people traditionally live in chalets built from stone and wood.
Built during the reign of Augustus, it is one of the best preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world.
Designed in a Gothic style, this abbey was built by the Benedictine Monks of Montmajour.
The Arles Amphitheatre
Just like the Colosseum in Rome, these amphitheatres witnessed 4 centuries of gladiators and wild animals coming head to head.
This fishing village became the "Saint Trop'" of stars of the silver screen, singers and millionaires during the 50's.

Did you know?
In 1080, Bruno and six companions asked the bishop of Grenoble for an area of wasteland in the mountains of his diocese. He built a small retreat in St Pierre de Chartreuse which became the birthplace of a major meditative order. This monastery is completely devoted to silence and to the monks' prayer and is not open for visits.
The community can host anyone wishing to experience a retreat in a Carthusian monk's cell.
