Situated on a plateau 3 km from Bourg-Saint-Maurice, the little village of Vulmix is huddled around its Saint-Grat chapel where its 15th Century frescoes, like a strip cartoon, tell the legend of its patron saint who went to Palestine to look for John the Baptist’s head.
By cleverly adapting to the landscape, the harshness of the climate and thanks to the know-how of its inhabitants, the traditional architecture of mountain villages has retained its originality. Stroll at will through its lanes.
A modern, functional resort, integrated into the mountain landscape and adapted to the slope. The work of a team of designers which gathered around Charlotte Perriand, the architects Gaston Regairaz, Guy Rey-Millet, Bernard Taillefer, Robert Robutato and Pierre Faucheux amongst others.
The latter was to design the Coupole the glued laminated wooden frame of which was used as the basis for the design of les Arcs’ logo.
Between Mont Blanc and the Bellecôte chain, on the edge of the golf course, an architecture wrapped up in the slope... Another view of 20th Century architecture.
