Villard-sur-Doron, Bisanne 1500

Charming Savoyard village located in Beaufortain between Albertville and Beaufort. It is good to stroll in the small alleys between the gardens, the houses and the orchards. Saint Peter's Church deserves a little visit. In the heart of the village is the church, rebuilt in 1672 and whose restoration in 1999 essentially restored the decorations of 1852 made of floral decorations and pastel tones. As for the bell tower, it has been altered several times because of the wars but also by the choice of certain wealthy jewelers from the village in the XNUMXth century.

Hanging on the foothills of Mont Bisanne, facing south to 1500m altitude, the station Bisanne 1500 offers a grandiose panorama of the Beaufortain and  Mont Blanc.
