Castle around Lake Annecy

During your stay at the hotel in our beautiful region of Haute Savoie, we recommend an excursion to Menthon Saint Bernard, one of the most popular communes located on the shores of Lake Annecy between the communes of Veyrier and Talloires .

From Hotel The Originals Annecy Airport it will take you about 20 minutes to get to Menthon St. Bernard.

Once there, do not miss the visit of the Castle which dominates the town and the lake.
The castle was composed in the 12th century of 3 square towers, then over the centuries and especially in the Renaissance period, the castle was redesigned and transformed into a 105-room dwelling house!
The castle has belonged to the same family for 1000 years, and it is the great-grandfather of the current owner, René de Menthon, who initiated the construction of the turrets. Walt Disney was inspired to design the castle of The Sleeping Beauty !

To discover the castle and its history, the owners propose guided tours in the summer.
  • In May, June and September: 2 pm to 6 pm, Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays
  • And in July and August: every day from 2pm to 7pm.
  • Please note all weekend and public holidays: costumed guided tours with the participation of 10 actors who will introduce you to the castle and make you relive its history in a lively way.
