Here, the farmers are getting younger, not older and a new generation are injecting vitality into the local traditions, particularly cheese-making. The lush Alpine pastures provide the cows, sheep and goats with all they need for their milk to be turned into delicious Reblochon, Beaufort, Tomme and Raclette cheeses.
Val d’Arly is surrounded by the Aravis, Mont-Blanc and Beaufortain massifs, so walking through stunning scenery of green meadows and dramatic peaks is second nature. But you’ll also find more unusual landscapes, such as this, the
Arpelières trail through ancient peat bogs and wetlands that feels more Scandinavia than French Alps.
Swap the sea for the pretty swimming lake at the edge of Flumet, Val d’Arly’s main village. Ideal for swimming and relaxing, it’s surrounded by trees if you need a shady spot, and there are plenty of picnic benches, two cafes and a diving platform and towering fountain in the middle of the water. Alternatively, opt for a paddle in
one of the many mountain streams.
Take a cycling tour of the villages of Val d’Arly. The Tour de France regularly races through and climbs its cols (notably the Col des
Aravis), or take it easier on an e-bike. This is medieval Flumet, with plenty of local cheese and charcuterie producers, but also visit charming Notre Dame de Bellecombe, livelier Crest-Voland and tiny La Giettaz.
