…into the heart of preserved countryside

Many conservation efforts have been undertaken to preserve the lake and its surroundings from pollution. In 1957, the decision was made to create an inter-communal structure to collect and treat the wastewater that was being discharged into the lake at the time, threatening it with eutrophication. This is why Lake Annecy is considered one of the purest lakes in Europe.

A rich heritage
and breathtaking views!

Lake Annecy is dominated by many steep mountains which confer on the lake its special strength and serenity: Tournette, Lanfonnet, Dents de Lanfon, Mont Veyrier, Parmelan, Semnoz, Roc de Chère... Summits that offer great opportunities for walks and spectacular views of the lake!

Lake Annecy offers first-class historical landmarks with a human presence dating back over 5,000 years. From the Neolithic period, through the Gallo-Roman era and the Middle Ages, to the attachment of Savoie to France, the region is brimming with traces of a rich and turbulent past, as illustrated by its architectural heritage. With its arcaded houses, churches, bridges and fountains, Annecy is also a city of irresistible charm. It has to be said that the town known as the “Venice of Savoie” has a lot to offer! And the sense of wonder continues all along the shores of the lake, taking in the various landscapes of Haute-Savoie (mountains and valleys), all the way to Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe.
