The people of Savoie are noted for their reserve and you should certainly not expect the place to be bubbling with life...The old quarter though, tastefully restored, has passageways which are a local slant on the i/traboules/i and are a stone's throw away from the alpine parks of Vanoise, Chartreuse and Bauges.
