    I am usually impressed by gorges and waterfalls, so I am happy to recommend this one, near the village of Servoz.
    Coming down from the Mont Buet, the Diosaz river has cut its way in the rocks and formed this spectaculat gorge, with numerous waterfalls.
    Admiring this natural wonder is not difficult, because there is an easy path to it, well equipped with secure railings and catwalks.
    It is open to visitors from May to October. In July and August the opening time is from 8.30 to 18.30.
    The entire visit takes just 1 hour and a half.

    I paid only a short visit to Servoz, but I noticed that information posted at the Tourist Information Office described a good deal of initiatives, such as exhibitions, concerts, festivals. The Tourist Information Office is situated just opposite to the Mairie, and if you happen to visit this village I recommend you to check here if there are any activities planned for that day. Or even before planning your trip you can check the programme in the official website of the communities of Servoz and Les Houches, in the section "Animation".

    Actually I did not need a taxi when I went to Servoz, because the intention was just to walk around. I noticed the sign advertising the taxi service because it was so cute. Very different from usual advertising posts.
    For those who stay in this village for a holiday, and do not have a car, this taxi service is certainly helpful, especially when arriving or leaving with luggage, to get from the train station to their destination. In fact the station is a bit out of the village.

    Servoz has its own little railway station, on the line of the Mont-Blanc-Express. Trains run every hour and connect this village with the more famous town of Chamonix and many other villages of the region. Actually, one of the end-stations of this train is Martigny, in Switzerland, so a tourist who wants to get to Servoz from Geneva (for instance) can travel by train from Geneva and change train in Martigny.

    The church

    Favorite thing: The main part of the village can be clearly identified as the one where the church and the Mairie (the Town Hall) are located, as well as several shops. However, a bit separate from this part of the village, there is the Old Servoz. There are only houses there, no shops, neither hotels or restaurants, but it is really worth visiting, because the picturesque old houses provide a nice picture of a typical French Alpine community.
