Veyrier-le-Lac just 5km

Veyrier-le-Lac just 5km from Annecy is known to the locals as the “Savoyard Emerald Coast”, it’s a very pretty village and home to several excellent restaurants overlooking the lake. A little further on you’ll arrive in Menthon-Saint-Bernard, another pretty village with a 1000 year old fairy-tale castle in which a Saint was born and whose descendants still live there. It’s a fascinating place to visit with exquisite views over the lake and gorgeous gardens.

Go further on and you’ll arrive at Duingt, nicknamed the pearl of Lake Annecy,with its gorgeous chateaux – yes two of them, turrets peaking over the trees as the snowy mountain peaks soar into the sky around them.
