Maison Caramel is located in the Tarentaise, part of ancient kingdom of Savoie and right at the heart of the French Alps. Although internationally renowned for its ski resorts, the area also has a rich farming heritage and many areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Winter is the time to ski and enjoy other winter sports, but in summer there’s lots to see and do. Explore picturesque villages with their baroque chapels and traditional farmhouses, tiny hamlets on the high pastures, or wild unspoilt mountain landscapes with fascinating flora and fauna. Go further afield and visit one of the region’s fine historic cities for the day. Wander around the cobbled streets, have lunch in an old square, then browse the street markets and tiny shops.
