The commune of Saint Alban des Villards, set back from the main traffic axis, is to be discovered by taking time to contemplate. Houses tightly squeezed together, attics on stilts (also locally called wooden rooms), sundial, church of Sardinian neo-classical style, path opening towards the long summer walks, small places arranged for the petanque... will delight the visitor !
Gateway to the Villards valley, Saint Alban des Villards and its ten or so hamlets offer all the facets of Savoyard authenticity. Its numerous race departures in Belledonne make Saint Alban a village very appreciated by ski tourers.
Leave at dawn, in a dream setting, cross fields of flowers and green pastures to the rhythm of the herds' bells...
