  • See like Walt Disney castle Nice view and there is a view point at the road 10 min from Annecy After that 5 min to good cafe in Monton  more »
  • To see without fail! This building, which overlooks the Lake of Annecy, brings the history of the family of Menthon St Bernard. The Interior of the building perfectly well furnished, the kitchen, the story, takes us centuries back. Major efforts are currently made for the restoration of the exterior, to allow visitors and their families to have a full and enjoyable time. A break-in at Walt Disney.

  • A very responsible to history, medieval jewelry. A constuctioni, beautiful, furnished, very well kept owned has an owner who has hosted the Jews to protect here. Francis Chin, the owner, a good friend of Charles de Gaulle, plays an important role in the history of the France.

  • Worth the trip up there just for the views alone. Unfortunately there is no photography allowed in castle. You also have to take a guided tour. The fee was fair, and there wasn't many people. The drive up there had minimal signage, but the GPS managed to get us there. The castle has various rooms to see that are decorated in traditional linens. It is a functioning castle with a family living there so there are portions of the castle that are not available for viewing. If you are in the area and have a car to drive up to the castle, it'll be well worth it!
  • Absolutely amazing castle and view. This part of France is definitely on the top of the 'Most Beautiful Places In The World' list. Enjoy !
  • Beautiful old castle, but be warned they only open in the afternoons
  • Your was very nice and theatrical, but there was so tour in English.
  • Beware during peak season you may have to arrive early to get tickets: the last tickets are sold way before the last visit
