New hotels and guest houses in Savoie Mont Blanc we can’t wait to visit

News on the wire about upcoming hotel and guest house openings in the Savoie Mont Blanc region of France has the TLR newsdesk all a flutter.

Covering two thirds of the French Alps, the region makes for an idyllic summer short haul break, and is definitely worth a visit when we all get out of lockdown.

Best known for its mountains and ski resorts, Savoie Mont Blanc also boasts a quartet of spectacular lakes (Annecy, Bourget, Aiguebelette and Geneva French side) which will provide a memorable Insta backdrop for a mid-week escape. So which of these will you frequent first?
