As a souvenir of your holidays in Thônes, you can take back one of the specialities that you can buy from our dairy !

La Closette Goat Cheese

At an altitude of 1200m, facing the Tournette massif, you can find the Closette goat farm. During the summer months the goats remain around the farm enjoying the alpine meadow there.
The manufacture of cheeses (buche, pyramide cendree, crottin...) and various flavoured specialities is performed on site.  You can get to meet the farmer while you buy some of his produce on the farm. 

Worth knowing: you can find the farmer every Saturday morning at the Thônes market.
