The Grotte et Cascade de Seythenex are a great day out and are the only tourist caves in Haute Savoie. You can explore the wonderful geological features under the earth and walk to the top of a 40 metre waterfall which you can then zip wire across (if you dare).
Discover the magnificent castle set high over Lake Annecy with interesting architecture and exceptional period features. For more stunning historical objects visit Château de Montrottier, which has a remarkable collection of furniture, ceramics, lace and rare Asian and African objects.
Les Jardins Secrets are an absolute delight with different themes, explosions of colour and atmospheres – they are a must-see.
One of the most beautiful structures in Annecy is Le Palais de l’Ile, surrounded by water on three sides and beautifully illuminated at night. But it does have a dark side... can you hear the fint sound of chains ratting? This building has been used as a jail, but it is now a museum of local history.
