Fans of culture and traditional everyday life are spoilt for choice: medieval church, pretty little streets, local specialities… and some breath-taking panoramic views too, all under the protective eye of Mont-Blanc.

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).

Chapelle du Passieu

Passieu chapel was established in the 18th century at the initiative of the parish priest. Blessed in 1747, it was placed under the patronage of St Sébastin, St Antoine and St Guérin. Restored in 1975.

Our Lady of Lourdes oratory - Critobles oratory

Egalement dénommé «Oratoire des Critobles», cet oratoire est couvert par un toit à 4 pans en zinc surmonté d’une croix en fer forgé, avec au centre les lettres P&B : à droite un petit bénitier en pierre.

Oratory of the Holy Family

Erigé en 1863 par Joseph Théodule Jond, cet oratoire de type guérite contient une statue de la Saint Famille en bois doré.

Abymes bridge

The Abymes bridge connects Flumet with Notre-Dame-de-Bellecombe. Interesting not only for its architecture, the bridge offers stunning views over the river Arly situated 32m below, the T’ienne mill and hanging houses.

Museographic space

Exhibition space of the local area, mountain agriculture and the local AOP products. Experience life in the Val d'Arly through the film "Carnet de Voyage" and then enjoy tastings of our local produce. Open daily, year round, from 8.30 am to 7.30 pm (unguided visit) - guided tours can be booked.

L'Etale

This compact mountain summit is, despite its appearance, higher than Le Charvin (2484 m). With its many cliff faces, it is more difficult to climb but is bursting with genepi plants…

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.

Immaculate Conception Oratory

Bâtiment massif en crépi blanc, au toit à 4 pans recouvert de tôle et surmonté d’une croix en fer forgé, a été érigé en 1866. Un petit bénitier a été placé à droite d’une niche en retrait protégée par une grille en fer forgé : « CMF 1867 ».

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.
