Chambery, France EGuidebook: Gem of the French Alps

 Chambery, France Eguidebook: Chambery - the Gem of the French Alps

Written by me, this is the only Chambery Guidebook in English in existence (that I'm aware of). You can buy it for only $2.99 here:

Chambery is in the middle of the French Alps and is the capital of Savoie (Savoy for you English speakers). It's a pretty town, although admittedly, a little too quiet for my taste after 26 years of living in Los Angeles. But it is a lovely city with lots of charm and history. For instance, it was the home of the Shroud of Turin for many years. I bet you didn't know that!

Here are some photos of this pretty town. By the way, the ceiling of this church is actually Trompe L'oeil painting. It looks like the real thing but it isn't. Chambery is the home of the largest collection of Trompe L'oeil painting in Europe. You can find it all over the streets too. A little know fact about Chambery is that it held the Shroud of Turin for 70 years during its history. Read about it in my ebook.


  1. I've had the pleasure of reviewing "Photo Journey of France and Europe" and I'm pleased to inform you that your blog has been added to Blogging Women.

    Thank you for sharing your blog with me and now the many readers of our blog directory.

    Keep up the great work and I'm looking forward to your future post.

  2. The first photo here is absolutely beautiful with its hues of muted blues, purples, and pinks. Truly lovely!

  3. I was so pleased to see this blog! I have been searching for pictures of Chambery to show my Southern California grandsons (age four, twins) who will be traveling to France for the first time this year to spend a couple of weeks with our family there. My sister-in-law, Prudy, lives in Chambery, and I have been there many times. Since she seems to know every other American in France, I would not be surprised if you know her, too! Thanks for the great photos!

  4. So glad you found us. No, I don't know Prudy, unfortunately. I hope your family has a great time here. Cynthia
