La Motte-en-Bauges - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Savoie

Village of Savoie, in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, La Motte-en-Bauges takes place at about forty kilometers from Chambéry, halfway between Aix-les-Bains and Annecy, in the Regional Natural Park of the Massif des Bauges.

Located on a molassic promontory, the town is one of the oldest settlements of the Bauges. A Gallo-Roman site was discovered in the course of the nineteenth century. A long time farming village, La Motte-en-Bauges sees the appearance of fruit in the nineteenth century, for the manufacture of regional cheeses.

At the heart of a preserved and authentic nature, the village of La Motte-en-Bauges still unveils today an architectural and historical heritage that testifies to its past, and offers a wide range of outdoor activities or relaxation with family or friends.
