Situated in the heart of the Albanais territory and its “cycle trails”, half-way between the lakes of Annecy and Bourget, Rumilly is a rural town. The town has grown down the decades around flagship industries such as Seb, CPF Nestlé and Vulli. The environmentally-friendly town is an integral part of the gateway-towns network of the Bauges Mountain Regional Nature Park. Its dynamic approach is also demonstrated by the number of sports and leisure infrastructures in place (nautical centre, go-kart circuit) and a fertile pitch for organised activities. Events, culture, sport, national heritage; Rumilly is a town in which diversity is evident even in its architecture. Amongst the town’s public spaces, the “ville haute” flies the modernist flag with the Quai des Arts and its forecourt set beside the Place d’Armes. In close proximity, the vieux bourg nestles between the gorges of the Chéran and the Fier; with the cornmarket and its 16th century arcaded houses.
