Hello and welcome to the Bed and Breakfast “Pollen” site
Do you see yourself….
seeking the tranquillity of an authentic mountain village?
wanting to hike and explore the Beaufortain mountains?
curious to learn the secret of how Beaufort cheese is made?

or just passing through the area?
Well then, the B&B Pollen is just what you’ve been looking for!
Located in the heart of the village of Granier at an elevation of 1250m ( 4000 feet), our B&B finds itself in a large and old house typical of alpine villages in this area. Situated in the Beaufortain Massif, the village of Granier enjoys splendid views of high alpine glaciers in the Vanoise Park, as well as the Tarentaise Valley below. With its southern exposure, Granier has bountiful sunshine. The 180 ° views from Granier encompass high alpine peaks and glaciers, valleys and villages, dense conifer forests, and alpine pastures.
Granier is located close to world-class ski stations such as La Plagne and Les Arcs, as well as famous alpine passes (St. Bernard, Iseran, Roseland, or the smaller cornet d’Arêches). The beautiful Vanoise National Park is also located close by.
