Lush green countryside and natural reserves surrounded by mountains over 2300m high, Lake Annecy is favorable to family walks and sporty hikes.

 Walks and small family hikes :

  • Natural reserve of Bout-du-Lac : crossed by two rivers flowing the lake of Annecy, it is rich in wildlife (birds, amphibians, beavers, insects ...). Nice walk in the wild and unspoilt reedbed, accessible to all types of public (including strollers and wheelchairs) with a landscaped educational path.
  • Natural reserve of Roc de Chère : several paths, all beginning from the golf's parking. Beautiful point of view on the "small lake" and the castle of Duingt. Baby Carrier OK, no stroller
