This 'Village de Vacances' is perfect for families and those looking for plenty of activities in a beautiful location. Perched on the side of the lake in Menthon, a quiet area around the bay from Talloires (and a pedestrian zone during the summer), the property sells itself on its location. It has a simple, yet friendly style and the bedrooms have been renovated for nexy summer. There is a lovely panoramic dining room and a shaded terrace area facing the lake to enjoy your meals and relax in the fine weather.

Monthon Saint Bernard is a village on the sunny side of the lake, known as the Rive Plein Soleil and is just a few miles around the lake from the fabulous town of Annecy. The village is picturesque with a small delightful port, a beach, a promenade along the lake, the castle (Chateau de Menthon) and the Roc de Chère Nature reserve.

In July and August you can enjoy guided walks and mountain trekking with a qualified guide, table tennis, boules, volley ball and there are two live concerts each week. Some of the other activities included here are sailing, canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, table tennis, volleyball, badminton and visiting the markets in Annecy.

Lake Annecy

Not only is it one of the prettiest lakes around, but Lake Annecy is also “Europe’s cleanest lake” due to the very early introduction of environmental regulations in the 1960s. Famously painted in oil on canvas by Cézanne in 1896, the lake lies at the foothills of the French Alps and has a rich local history from both before and after the unification of the local region of Savoy with France in 1860. As well as the spectacular lakes and mountains scenery, the area is well known for its local cuisine including its cheeses, its fish such as Omble Chevalier and Féra, and its chocolate, especially the mountain liqueur-based Roseau.

With a relaxing lakeside setting on the eastern shores of Lake Annecy, Talloires and its medieval architecture became increasingly popular with well-known artists and writers and is now a lovely, laid-back village resort and an ideal base form which to explore the area.

Getting around the lake is also a relaxing experience with the local boat calling at the lakeside villages. Further afield we offer a collection of guided excursions including a weekly (numbers permitting) visit to Chamonix, which boasts the highest mountains in Western Europe accessible on foot- including the Aiguille du Midi (3,842 metres), giving an amazing view of Mont Blanc and the surrounding glaciated valleys.

Things to Do

Discover the history of the area

Visit the town of Annecy, known as the 'Venice of the Alps', its canals, the old town and historical churches. The most famous buildings are the Palais de l’Isle and the Basilique de la Visitation above Old Annecy with a free exhibition of bells (from mid-May onwards).

The area was also associated with the French Resistance, the British agent Odette operated locally and the story of the Plateau de Glières, where resistance fighters were based and there was a big battle is told in the Resistance Museum.

The village of Talliores on the Eastern side of the lake was built around an 11th century abbey. The most well known castles in the area were built by the Dukes of Savoy including Annecy, Menthon-Saint-Bernard and Montrottier.


Great for cycling

There's a flat cycle path circumnavigating Lake Annecy and this scenic ride follows the outline of the lake with fantastic views across glistening water towards pretty villages, castles and mountain peaks. The path also goes along to Albertville on an old rail track.


Love nature

Visit the Bout de lac Nature reserve and follow the trail running through woodland, meadows and marshes, and there's even an old tower giving an elevated view. The paths in the hills around Talloires offer great intermediate hiking and a chance to discover Alpine nature at it's best. Visit the Cascade d’Angon waterfall (30mins walk above Talloires Village) and the Roc de Chère Nature Reserve
