During your stay, there are many localheritage museums you can visit to see life as it was before in the region. Annecy is only 30 minutes from Saint Jean de Sixt, known as the “Venise of the Alps” with its canals and lake, visitors have been coming herefor over a century and are never failed to be impressed by its picturesque setting in the mountains and the historic old town.
Chamonix is less than an hour from the Aravis and really is a must. A prestigious base camp with the possibility for the most unadventurous among us to take to the peaks with the Aiguille du Midi cable car and the train to the Mer de Glace.
Not forgetting the French side of Lake Leman with Evian, Thonon, Yvoire and Ripaille. You can also take a boat trip in to Switzerland as far as Lausanne where you will find the Olympics Museum or of course you can go to Geneva.
