A medieval strip cartoon

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.

Stones, roofing slabs and timber

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.

Les Arcs, an architectural signature

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.

Arc 1800, a balcony resort

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.

 

Tour prices and days can be found in the entertainment programme available every week in the Tourist Offices of Bourg-Saint-Maurice/Les Arcs.
