Description

Belle, where are you? Belle? It's easy to imagine Sebastian calling his loyal companion, here where the landscape provided the backdrop for various films about the saga of Belle and Sebastian. Purist fans of the TV series broadcast in 1965 will tell you the adventure took place in the Mercantour mountains. But the film version was shot here in the village of Ecot. Once you're here you'll easily understand why the producers chose this site. The scenery, the glaciers, the mountain wildlife and plants and, above all, the beautiful stone! The houses in Bonneval sur Arc and Ecot are typical examples of Haute Maurienne architecture. These stone buildings blend perfectly into the landscape, just like on a film set. Enjoy the film!
