Savoy Region of France

The Criterium du Dauphine rides through the Savoy today

An area I traveled through in 2007. We were passing through from Mont Blanc to Thones (Haute-Savoie) and had an extra night to find accommodations. We found this Bed & Breakfast last minute, located west of Lake Annecy. The Savoy area is between Lake Annecy and Geneve. France has so many wonderful Chambres D'Hotes or Gites as an alternative to hotels for accommodation. Route of today's Dauphine.
