Heritage

Le Mont-Charvin

Mont Charvin (2407 m) is one of the main peaks of the Aravis mountain range and is recognisable by its pyramid shape and steep rock face. This is maybe the reason for its name: Charvin means exposed summit (“charve” is patois for “chauve” meaning bald).

Our Lady of Bonnefontaine Oratory

"Le Gâteau" - Panoramic views

A pretty mountain, overlooking Flumet, which probably got its name ("gâteau" means cake in French) from its “millefeuille” cake shape. It offers splendid views over the Mont-Blanc chain of mountains, the Beaufortain and Aravis…

Château de Charbonnière

The "château" de Charbonnière is a fortified house dating from at least the 16th C. Burned during the Revolution, the only parts of its former exterior remaining are the large living quarters and one of the four elegant turrets that once adorned it.

Evettes Lake

De Bieu Fortified house

The Maison De Bieu, standing on the edge of the village, is a 15th C fortified house with a distinctive square tower adjacent to the living area. Long-time home to the De Bieu family, it is Flumet’s last maintained and inhabited “château”.

Flumet church

Saint Théodule church in Flumet was rebuilt in 1682 after the the original 13th C church was destroyed by fire Particularly noteworthy because of its belltower in the shape of a medieval tower, its unusual design, rich furnishings and baroque altars.

Eglise Saint Théodule : En accès libre

Chaucisse church

The local parish church was hard to reach on foot from the hamlet of Chaucisse, especially during the winter. In 1818, thanks to a gift from one of the village’s “expatriates”, a chapel was built that later became the parish church (1828 to the 1960s).

Château des Faucigny

The Château des Faucigny, fortified in the 12th century, is now a ruin. However, the building was once of great architectural and historical value and was part of the original development of Flumet.

Saint Nicolas la Chapelle church

Saint Nicolas-la-Chapelle church, dedicated to the saint of the same name, dates from the 18th C. The baroque building is notable because of its belltower with double light turret, sculpted porch, murals and canopied main altar – unique in Savoie.
