What to see in Servoz ?
Enjoy a walk around Servoz to appreciate the natural surroundings and savour some time with the family. Stop of in the baroque-style church, Saint Loup de Servoz. It was built on the site of the former chapel of the Château de la Tour in 1537 and has been successively renovated and added to.
A little further along, the Diosaz waterfalls have been popular with visitors since 1875! There are five waterfalls in all, which you can follow to the heart of the canyon. Here time appears to stand still as you admire the beauty of your natural surroundings.
The imposing Lieutenant’s house stands out among the village’s other buildings. It was acquired by the municipal council in 2014 and is now an interpretation centre dedicated to mountain farming. Its permanent and temporary exhibitions help visitors understand the area from past to present. The Lieutenant’s house is also a hub of activity, hosting a series of cultural events. Why not stop off there to meet the people of Servoz who will be delighted to tell you all about their village?
In mid-October every year, Servoz hosts a lively sheep fair that is unmissable for anyone in the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc Valley. There is a sheep competition and a whole series of activities for every age, including cider-making, bougnettes (Savoyard potato fritters), music and a tractor show! It is an opportunity for the village to celebrate its farming traditions and culture.
