About5 20 mins drive all uphill from the town centre with superb views over the Lake and of Mont Blanc in the distance. For the energetic the very top is reached on foot in about ten minutes for the road. This is one of the local timed cycle climbs so you will need to be careful going round blind bends... More

It's about 20 minute drive up the mountain from Annecy centre, but mostly through forests rather than mountain cliff edges in case your faint-hearted! Our kids loved the summer luge (toboggan), the all-terrain go-karts and electric go-karts for younger ones. These attractions are reasonably priced and there are decent facilities on site too. The mountain like most Alpine mountains is... More

We drove up here, and it took a lot longer than expected. However, the views were amazing - it was well worth it. Although it had been fine in Annecy, it was really cloudy at the top, and we couldn't see a thing when we first arrived. We dropped down slightly to the summer luge for a couple of hours,... More

Took a trip up on a cloudy day. We got the bus from Annecy. You buy a return ticket on the bus which also gives you a free ride on one of the activities so don't lose your ticket. You can have a good trek around the mountain with the sound of cowbells in the back ground. However I most... More

Got the shuttle bus for a couple of runs, some friendly locals invited us to join them and showed us some sweet single track. Some techincal bits over rocky terrain at the top and some flowy bits through the pretty forest towards the bottom. Shuttle was on time, great for bikes and the driver was awesome.

Went in summer so was very green. Beautiful drive up the mountain. Some tremendous views of Annecy and the surrounds. Highly recommended if you don't like massive crowds and traffic.

I had planned to take my daughter from Annecy to Chamonix, but we decided against it since we had rented an apartment in Annecy and were enjoying it so much. There is a beautiful view at the top and I was very glad we chose to go. A beautiful view of MB and surrounding mountains. If you're taking public transport,... More
