Conflans is a medieval village near Albertville. Overlooking the city, sheltered behind its 14th century walls, the medieval city of Conflans offers the charm of yesterday. Discover the baroque church, enjoy incredible views of Combe de Savoie valley, the Bauges and Chartreuse mountains. In the heart of the city, enter the art and History museum, located in a beautiful registered historical monument. This museum is free and really interesting (a lot more fun than the Annecy Castle museum to my point of view). You can learn and see a lot about local life before.
The streets and alleways have stayed the same as the time of the Green Count, Amédée VI, count of Savoy. On the Roman road from Milan to Vienna via the Petit Saint Bernard pass, Conflans witnessed the passage of merchants, peddlers, and pilgrims.
Today, Conflans welcomes you all year round in its maze of narrow streets, on its shady terraces full of flowers, and in its colourful boutiques.
Enjoy a coffee in the main square by the fountain or relax in the beautiful shaded garden!
You can easily park your car at the bottom of Conflans medieval village, only a few minutes walk to the center of the village which is for pedestrians only.
It is perfect for a family day out on a sunny day in the Savoie area.
