Walks, activities, and experiences

Staying at Rivage Hôtel & Spa you will discover the most spectacular landscapes of the Haute-Savoie while enjoying the many activities offered around Annecy and its lake.

Annecy, the Little Venice of the Alps

Located 30 minutes from La Clusaz and Geneva, 1 hour from Chamonix and 1.5 hours from Lyon, the romantic city of Annecy is the heart of the Haute-Savoie. Appreciated for its dynamism, numerous shops, and flourishing cultural life, Annecy is full of walks and activities to discover alone, with family, or friends.

We love to stroll through the Old Annecy where the colourful houses line the Thiou canal, covered in flowers in fine weather. The narrow streets, historic sites, unusual shops, and numerous restaurants have contributed to the prosperity of the old town, which is often referred to as "Little Venice of the Alps."

Lake Annecy

What makes Annecy such an ideal destination for a weekend or a week in Haute-Savoie is the lake with its crystal clear waters surrounded by imposing mountains that make for a stunning panorama. 

The Pont des Amours is the most romantic place in town, delightful in summer as well as winter. But the lake is also a must for cyclists, who can cycle around it without difficulty, for swimmers, who can enjoy its beaches, and for nature lovers, who can marvel at the "Bout du Lac", an 80-hectare nature reserve where numerous wild beavers loll around.
