1. Annecy : Renowned for its old town with its cobbled streets, winding canals and pastel-coloured houses, Annecy is a great place to live and stroll, especially along its beautiful mountain lake.

2. Fier Gorges: The Gorges du Fier is a must-see tourist site. There is a spectacular and narrow canyon where you walk on a footbridge fixed in the rock 25 metres above the river, a surprising Sea of Rocks, astonishing legends, and above all enchantment in the heart of nature!

3.  Sierroz Gorges: A walk along the Gorges du Sierroz is like stepping back in time, to a place steeped in history and legend, where in the 19th century celebrities from all over Europe flocked to sail in an atmosphere of natural scenery, canyons and superb panoramas.

4. Menthon castle: Nestled in a deep park, the Château de Menthon is one of the architectural jewels of Savoy. It is also a living residence, still occupied by the same family for almost 1000 years.
