Chamberanger (1250m) is a typical village which is a real witness of the traditional way of life in mountain: steep little streets, chains of houses hung on the slope. A fine example of adapting a mountain community to a difficult geography.
This important hamlet of the commune of Le Planay sitting on a rocking spur seems to stick on the slope. Its traditional architecture is distinctive by its steep narrow streets made of “standing rocks”. Built with local materials from the spruce forest and quartzite quarry, the typical houses are characterized by a house divided in three parts, one used for permanent living, a stable and a barn.
Its chapel dedicated to Saint Barthelemy has been built in 1505 and is the oldest chapel of Le Planay Commune.
Chamberanger has also become a starting famous place to hike. Many hiking trails are available from the village specially to reach the Grand Bec refuge or Pralognan la Vanoise or Champagny en Vanoise.
