A town of Art and HistoryMedieval city of ConflansTo enter Conflans by the “Porte de Savoie” is to enter into history. Streets and alleways have stayed the same as the time of the Green Count, Amédée VI, count of Savoy. On the Roman road from Milan to Vienna via the Petit Saint Bernard pass, Conflans witnessed the passage of merchants, peddlers, and pilgrims.Today, Conflans welcomes you all year round in its maze of narrow streets, on its shady terraces full of flowers, and in its colourful boutiques.

The Streets of Conflans are an adventure. As you pass through the city gates you are steeped in time and get a wonderful feeling of the history of the town. The views back to Albertville are stunning. Sadly for us most of the shops were closed - we went early on a Sunday but wandering around the almost deserted streets... More

Conflans feels like it was caught in a time warp. Except for the occasional car, things haven't changed here for a very long time. We lived near here and really enjoyed visiting whenever it was possible. Great for a family outing or just a step back in time.

Stayed here for about 2 weeks in Le Cheval Blanc, a sweet little B&B in the center. When you come to Albertville you should definately visit Conflans! It's not the most exciting but the history behind the city is interesting and there is a few good restaurants to visit. Be warned however, you cannot get into the city with a... More

Conflans is a short but steep walk from Albertville centre, (or a short drive, with parking on the back end of the old city). The old city itself is not that great. Below average from my experience. But, there is a nice view of the city from the beautiful courtyard at the top of the old city and there are... More

We were only passing-by rather rapidly. After the summer season and on a Monday, most shops were closed, but we could guess the place must be much more lively at times. Beautiful village, though.

Really good value for money. We visited early in the afternoon when most of the other businesses were closed. The displays were interesting and well laid out and it was very useful to have the English language audio guide, which worked well. Pleasant welcoming staff. A great way to spend a rainy afternoon.

There was a cheerful welcome from students in medieval dress at the entrance but the village owed a lot to cement and paint rather than real restoration. Most of the artisan shops were closed. The square was filled with restaurants with basically the same menu. The view over Albertville was the best part of the visit

There are several car parks on the road leafdng to Conflans ranging from a shortish walk up a hill or steps to being almost level...if you're not greatly mobile, keep driving up the hill till you can go no further. There are public toilets just up an alley off the main square. There are also various cafes in the square... More

About a 15 minute walk just on the outskirts of Albertville up a not too steep road. You can drive to the car parks if you wish just below the town itself. Despite the signs saying it's pedestrianized. It Isn't. Lots of cars motorcycles ect use the roads in the centre. Probably the locals. I was there about 12.30 to... More

Must see in Albertville. Nice medieval town on the top of the hill. Good sightseeing over the city, museum, old square with small restaurants.
