Chambery has over 56,000 inhabitants and is a thriving provincial town in a valley just south of Lac du Bourget, the biggest natural lake in France. The valley separates the Bauges Mountains from the Chatreuse Massif, making Chambery the gateway to several popular skiing destinations. There is a Campanile Hotel at your disposition right near the centre.
Chambery really only appeared as a small town, Camberiaco, in the sixth century. Chambery has been the historical capital of Savoy since the 13th century, when Amadeus V of Savoy made the city his seat of power. After enjoying a Golden Age in the 14th and 15th centuries, it declined after Duke Emmanuel Philibert moved his capital to Turin in 1563. In the 19th century, two large periods of urban development took place.
