“It’s an incredible opportunity to live in the region: here, it’s easy to feel like you’re on vacation when you’re walking around close to home.”
Originally from Chambéry and Savoie, Alexandra Debas arrived in Haute-Savoie in 2009 to study nursing. Since then, she has never left the Monts de Genève: after Annemasse and Collonges-sous-Salève, she now lives in Le Sappey, a town perched on the Salève.
Passionate about mountains and outdoor activities, she found her ideal playground in the Salève. Hiking in summer, snowshoeing or skiing in winter: nature is her outlet par excellence. Followed by nearly 10 thousand people on Instagram, Alexandra reveals the beauties of the region beyond the clichés and inspires her followers (but not only!) to go and discover new places. To this day, through her photos and the adventures she shares, she counts herself among the actors making the richness of the Monts de Genève destination. She admits that her passion for the mountains and the outdoors comes from her father: he is the one who passed on to her the taste for adventure and the interest for sports activities.
Since she was a little girl, she has also been interested in photography. First, to capture the moment and share memories, and today, to give the side and break clichés about Haute-Savoie. Always eager to learn and test unusual activities, thanks to her photos, she was spotted by the Savoie Mont Blanc agency to present the territory within the community of scouts Partir Ici of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Tourisme as a content creator.
Today, her involvement with Savoie-Mont-Blanc allows her to meet people who share the same passions as her. But her Instagram account is not only for contemplating the wonders of nature: the micro-influencer also takes advantage of it to pass on important messages: respect for nature and environmental protection, which, for her, are inseparable from the activities we practice in the outdoors. Today, in the midst of a professional transition, Alexandra is looking to live fully from her passions. She is sailing towards new horizons, and we wish her “A great success!”
