Nestled in the heart of the Alps, the resort-village of Combloux, in Haute-Savoie, enjoys a privileged geographical location and a panoramic view of Mont-Blanc.

At an average altitude of 980 meters, Combloux is the ideal playground for the practice of outdoor activities in the 4 seasons, whatever your level of training.

Located between the posh resort of Megève and the town of Sallanches, a few minutes from the more discreet resort of Cordon and the lively Saint-Gervais les Bains, the village of Combloux is part of a rich and dynamic territory: the Pays of Mont Blanc.

Less than an hour from the Swiss border and its Geneva airport, and very close to Italy, Combloux is both accessible and a good starting point for a discovery stay in the Alps.
