Savoie

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 15, 2010, 2:32 PM
Savoie is a French department located in the Rhône-Alpes region in the French Alps.

It is widely accepted that Savoie takes its name from the Latin Sapaudia or Sabaudia, meaning land covered in fir trees.

Savoie was long part of the states of Savoy, though it was occupied many times by France starting in the 16th century. It was integrated into the Mont-Blanc department from 1792 to 1815 (and partially into the Léman department from 1798 to 1814), later being annexed by France in 1860. The former Duchy of Savoy became the two departments of Savoie and Haute-Savoie.

Savoie is part of the Rhône-Alpes région. It borders the departments of Haute-Savoie, Ain, Isère and Hautes-Alpes in addition to Italy.

The department is crossed by the Isère river, which has its source in the Iseran pass. Its two main lakes are Lake Bourget (the largest and deepest lake entirely in France) and Lake Aiguebelette, one of the least polluted in France due to a 1976 law forbidding any use of motorboats on the lake.
