Below a post about La Clusaz/Beauregard plateau for you to discover during a family hike in Haute-Savoie.
In La Clusaz during the summer, you could take the eggs/cable car to go up to Beauregard. The view on the top is amazing! From there you could hike or just enjoy lunch or ice cream in one of the restaurants.
La Clusaz is about 30 min drive from Annecy, it is a lovely ski resort in the winter and a fresh place for the summer.
The word Clusaz comes from cluse which means “passage between two mountains”. There are several explanations for the addition of the “z”:
For aesthetic reasons, the employees of the land registry would have added this letter in order to finish the name of the village by a small arabesque.
We must look for the second explanation from the Franco-Provençal side of which the Savoyard dialect is a part. A “z” was placed after a letter to emphasize that the latter does not pronounce itself, is atonic, which naturally leads to an accentuation of the penultimate syllable. The elders pronounce “La Clus'”.
