Perched on the banks of France’s largest lake, overshadowed by the snow-dusted peaks of the Alps, Chambéry is one of the unsung secrets of the Savoy. It’s tempting to scoot straight up into the mountains, where a constellation of ski resorts and wildflower-blanketed national parks draw adventure junkies year-round, but linger for a while and you’ll discover a maze of charming arcaded streets, Piedmont-inspired mansions and more quaint little cafés than you can count. Don’t miss out on a visit to the medieval chateau, once home to the Dukes of Savoy and now a fascinating museum.
