The French Alps are full of incredible landscapes that deserve to be contemplated in summer. Here is a selection of our favorite places to take "instagramable" photos and leave with great souvenir photos!
The first place you like to stop when you get to Megeve is the beautiful gondola located in the centre of town. Holidaymakers love to stroll around, walk through the pretty alleys of the centre of Megeve and stop at the mythical Place de la Mairie, the historical centre of the resort. This place has preserved the charm of a real Savoyard village. Everything is centred around its large central square, which has both medieval and chic features.
Other must-see places and favourites to immortalize your stay on film: the Golf du Mont d'Arbois; the Lac de Javen; the Sommet du Jaillet with its panoramic view of Mont Blanc and the village of Megeve below; the Sommet du Mont d'Arbois with its mountain farms and chapel as well as the climb to Calvaire.
Located in the Plan de Tueda natural reserve of Meribel, the Tueda Lake is a sumptuous place surrounded by fir forests and mountains. This 3-hectare lake with its turquoise waters is the perfect place to take a breath of fresh air in the mountains. They will be enhanced by the diversity of wildlife, the magnificent shades of colour and the mountains reflected on the lake: a great plus that photography lovers love.
Other favourite places to take beautiful pictures: the Refuge de la Traye, the Lac Bleu at the top of the Col de la Loze, the Sommet de la Saulire as well as the Golf de Meribel.

Our other favourites in Courchevel 1850 to take beautiful pictures: the Rocher de la Loze, the Dent du Villard, the Lac du Biolay, and the Lac Merlet.
A typical mountain, a world cup track, it is Bellevarde we are talking about, one of the most identifiable places in Val d'Isere. After climbing this mountain by cable car at an altitude of more than 2800m, the Alps open up to you with a wide variety of landscapes to capture, from panoramas of the Val d'Isere slopes to the Italian Alps, via an aerial view of the resort.
The summit of the Glacier du Grand Pissaillas and the restaurant de l'Ouillette sur Solaise also offer magnificent views of Val d'Isere and its valley.
