Bourg St Maurice is a lot larger than people think. The main high street is pituresque and there is a real hustle and bustle in Bourg that continues throughout the year. There are a good selection of shops and restaurants and various different chains of supermarkets to keep everyone happy. It's easily accessible from the N90. The Eurostar also runs directly to Bourg St Maurice in the Winter season.
Bourg St Maurice is the largest town in this area. From here you can travel to La Rosiere, Sainte Foy, Les Arcs, La Plagne, Montchavin, Les Coches, Tignes, Val D'Isere and Italy. Bourg St Maurice is at the bottom of the Tarentaise Valley and boasts a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. Several large supermarkets, cinema, swimming pool and train station. There are a few festivals and a lovely local market. The next town is Aime. It is very similar to Bourg St Maurice in size and ambiance.
There are lots of restaurants in Bourg St Maurice. There are 2 that really stand out from the usual Savoyard menu though. For excellent, freshly made and locally sourced food at very competative prices head to Le Bistro D'Alpin. It's located on the main high street opposite the Mairie. The second restaurant that deserves recognition is L'Arssiban. It is a little out of the centre of Bourg and that gives it a calm and pleasing atmosphere. The menu is excellent and although it's not cheap you pay for what you get, which is top notch gourmet food. They also bake their own bread and have an excellent menu of the day. You'll find this little gem on the Avenue Antoine Borrel.

Being such a hub of Alpine activity and being close to around 8 different ski resorts, it is difficult to choose bewteen the hundreds of brilliant activities/places to see. We would definitely suggest that if you have never been white water rafting this is a cracking place to do it, the Isere is truly beautiful and the gorges are magnificent (however, we'd suggest you only do this in the Summer). We would also suggest having a trip up to the Italian border either by car and then you can visit the very pretty town of Aosta for some limoncello. Or the Fort de Platte is spectacular, it's located in Beaufortain and was built at the end of the 19th century in case of an invasion from Italy. You can reach it by heading towards Chapieux and then Echines-dessous.
