The site of Albertville was founded during the Roman period. Since that time, located at the heart of four alpine valleys: the Combe de Savoie, the Tarantaise, the Val d’Arly and the Beaufortain, it has always been a place of cultural exchange and ideas.

Close to the Roman city, King Charles-Albert built a strategic city in 1836 , « the city of Albert », and it became a hub for commercial exchange between France, Italy and Switzerland.

Albertville is also well known for its beautiful mountains, famous local ski resorts and more notedly as the city that welcomed the Winter Olympic Games in 1992!

In 2003, Albertville was awarded the title of “Town of Art and History”.

The CCEF campus is settled right in the middle of town, in a peaceful area, close to children schools, libraries, bookstores, movie theaters, little markets, parks and the town hall.
