No shop in our village: to get supplies from CURIENNE, it’s better to plan your shopping in advance! You will find some informations below.
Many producers sell their products directly to the consumer, either in the markets or directly on their premises.

When you come to the lodge, you will most certainly cross important commercial areas. We have located on the map below the closest and most interesting areas, according to us:
- area 1: the closest and most accessible; less than 8 km (13 minutes) and a single red light on the way, you will find in this area a supermarket of large size, but still “human”, with many services on site or very close
- area 2: large area distributed on both sides of the old national road from Chambéry. At 9 km and in about 16 minutes, you will find the hypermarket of the eastern Chambery and many other brands in various fields: sports shops, food, DIY, car accessories, etc. Traffic on the main road is often very congested, with many traffic lights.
- area 3: small commercial area, on the road to the South (8.3 km and 13 minutes), has the main interest of being able to do food shopping on Sunday morning.
The closest and best provided in the area:
- Tuesday (morning): Chambéry, place de Genève, in front of les covered halls
- Saint Alban Leysse, rue des Ecoles (all day long)
- La Ravoire, Place de la Mairie (morning)
- Thursday 4:30 pm- 7 pm: organic market of Chambéry, place du palais de Justice
- Friday (morning): Challes les Eaux, opposite tourist office

The choice is huge, everywhere: it’s up to you to look and make up your own mind. However, we note two addresses that are useful to us:
- the Auberge du Mont Saint-Michel in Curienne: 200m from the cottage, Christophe and Maud will serve you their traditional cuisine, on site or in takeaways on order;
- the lake inn in La Thuile: a very pleasant setting, very close to the lake, enough to spend an excellent day
