Haute Savoie

Located between the awe-inspiring peaks of Mont Blanc and the tranquil waters of Lake Annecy, Haute-Savoie is a sanctuary for winter sports aficionados and nature aficionados alike. The department is home to iconic ski resorts such as Chamonix, the inaugural host of the Winter Olympics, and Megève, a trailblazer in winter tourism since 1921.

Cultural and Historical Highlights

Annecy, the capital of the department, is a picturesque locale where the elegance of the Belle Époque era endures. Often referred to as the "Venice of the Alps," its historic centre is beautified by vibrant geraniums and intersected by tributaries of the River Thiou. The annual Lake Festival infuses an additional layer of vibrancy into this already captivating setting.

Natural Beauty and Wellness

Lake Geneva, or Lac Léman, presents another facet of allure. As the most expansive freshwater lake in Europe, it offers a range of cruises aboard its venerable ships and steamers. Spa towns like Evian-les-Bains and Thonon contribute to the department's wellness tourism, each with its distinct attractions and indigenous wines.
