BEAKING NEWS ! We have found the antidote to spending all your evenings on the sofa watching the European Football Championship, also effective on Netflix and Disney + ! Call up your best mates and we will deal with the rest, starting with great music, to the best spots to admire amazing sunsets all summer, and even a checklist so you won’t miss out on anything !

Confins Lake, to the sound of the cow bells

A trip to the Confins means relaxation guaranteed. The cows in their summer pastures around the lake provide gentle background music and time stands still with the changing colours of the landscape as the sun moves round the valley. Choose from one of the many picnic tables for a meal al fresco, or chose to be served in one of the many restaurants around the valley.

Some of the nearest restaurants : Le Chalet du Lac, L'Endryre and La Chenillette.

Panoramic Beauregard Plateau

Spend an evening in a picture postcard setting ! Beauregard means « beautiful view » and the Beauregard Plateau definately lives up to its name with its view over the Aravis range and the Col des Aravis stretching out towards Mont Blanc. Just look and admire the view and follow one of the many tracks to find a picnic spot of your choosing.

No problem if you prefer table service, there are 2 restaurants, the Matins Clairs or the 1647.

The Crêt du Merle, for an apero at the heights

A well-known spot for the locals, this is the perfect place for an apero perched overlooking the village. After posing in front of the LA CLUSAZ letters, layout your snack and savour the view from the natural balcony that dominates the valley.

A great opportunity to discover part of the MTB domaine and the circuits dedicated to e-biking.

The Trou de la Mouche, for experts

This is for black-belt hikers and motivated climbers who are happy to climb 1000m and descend with a headlamp ! The Trou de la Mouche is an unmissable itinerary in the Aravis, and for connaisseurs it is at its best as night falls. No formal dress code here, only the appropriate equipment for an unforgettable experience.

There are a multitude of tracks around here for hikes suitable for all ages and levels.
