      city and Alpine spa, Savoie département, Rhône-Alpes région, southeastern France, southwest of Geneva. A summer and winter resort with a beach on Bourget Lake (France's largest lake) and an aerial cableway up fir-covered Mount Revard (5,125 feet [1,562 metres]), it is a fashionable Alpine spa maintaining the sedate luxury of the Victorian era. Its sulfur and alkaline springs were exploited by the Romans, to whom they were known as Aquae Gratianae, and they are still the basis of modern health resorts. Pop. (1999) 25,732; (2005 est.) 26,500.
