“Paid for park, with all the local wildlife easy to see. The Marmozets are our favourite. Great place to stroll around with families. Beautiful views across the valley to Mont Blanc. If you don't want a long walk, keep driving as there is nearly always a space at the top! (Summer only)”

Ski Chairlift
“Great place to go and see the world in 360. There is a middle station - good to stop so you do not suffer too much the difference in altitude, and it has in summer a botanical garden that is exquisite, a place to eat and a playground for kids. The top station has a cyrstal room, and you can watch the views from inside if the weather is not good. ”
