Le Semnoz, Annecy
(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Le Semnoz was the site of a summit climb in the 2013 Tour de France. At 1, 699 m (5,574 ft) above sea level, it was a feat for any professional cyclist. Fortunately, you can master the mountain by car and visit the summit’s highest point for spectacular views of the surrounding peaks on the horizon and the villages dotting the land below your feet. Use our Annecy vacation builder to arrange your visit to Le Semnoz and other attractions in Annecy.

  • Whenever we come to Annecy we don't miss our walk on the Semnoz. That's an average mountain that allows great walks whether at the top or bottom. When the weather is clear you can see MT Blanc and all a string of summits. You can also see the Lake of Aix les Bains in clear weather. It of really nature, the rest of the eyes, empty in the head, a world of good. We love this place and if we can you give the desire is great. Besides it's very easy to access by a very nice and wide road not very curvy and safe. Halfway up you can take paths in the forest that will lead you over the Lake of Annecy. Very nice pictures for lovers. You can go with your family without worry. Good walk.

  • Whether it is summer, winter, spring or fall, there are always a good reason to go to the Semnoz. Ski resort winter pasture in summer, this site a few kilometres above Annecy brings a breath of fresh air. The view on the Mont-Blanc and the Alps (Switzerland and Italy), the overhang of the Lake, amazed eyes. Long walks on foot (or ski of funds) to browse the entire plateau. There is something for all tastes and all ages. You will also find farms pasture in season, a summer toboggan track, lifts, etc... There is really something for everyone has some 20 Minutes of Annecy
