5 good reasons to stay in Cœur de Tarentaise
At the heart of the Tarentaise in Savoie, the town of Moûtiers is a “Village Étape” or Stopover Village on the way to ski resorts in Les 3 Vallées and Haute Tarentaise, as well as the Vanoise National Park.
Italy is also just 2 hours away via the Iseran and Madeleine mountain passes, offering easy access to Aosta and Turin.
A historical town brimming with surprises, where listed buildings sit side by side with Street Art murals. It’s an ideal stopover location on the way to your holiday!
On market days (Tuesdays and Fridays), take a tour of the thousand-year-old cathedral, model railway or former archbishop’s palace for a visit to its painting and sculpture area, before strolling along the Grande Rue and doing a spot of window shopping.
Discover the history of the Savoie region, the Tarentaise Valley and Moûtiers through the lifestyles of yesteryear and vestiges of historical civilisations from Prehistory to the 19th century at the Museum of Popular Tradition and Museum of History and Archaeology.
Food lovers and gourmets will enjoywatching Beaufort cheese being made at the dairy cooperative, ortreating their taste buds in one of the town’s many restaurants and sampling our local specialities.
