Drove up here from st Jorioz (20mins) up a very windy road! Well worth your patience as the views are spectacular on a clear day! Stopped for a snack and drink at one of the restaurants at the top and watched the world go by (cyclists, paragliders, hikers etc). Looks like plenty to do with kids but we were late... More

Took the public bus (6 euros return) and much enjoyed the walk around at the top looking at the views. Not such a good view over the lake unless you walk further down the hill, but good view over the hills around and you can watch the model planes flying at the top. There are several restaurants and an activity... More

We drove here thinking that we could see the lake over Annecy, but were dissapointed. There are no views at all of the lake. Simply, you can see the Alps in a clear day. Good enough if you don't plan to visit the Alps afterwards. Otherwise, skip this visit. It takes around 40 minutes driving from Annecy and all the... More

The view of Mont Blanc was wonderful!. We were lucky to arrive to the mountain on a clear day and enjoyed the Alps from Semnoz. We also had some very good food at the restaurant near the top. Great for a half day experience.

August is very crowded in Haut-Savoie, but high up at Semnoz you feel free to walk and the views are exceptionel. At the village was +33C, up here just nice summer temp.

The summer tobogganing is good fun, but we would only recommend to only go there in good weather. We went there on the last day of our holidays and bought a ticket for 5 descents. Although the queue wasn't very long we had to wait for quite a long time to buy the ticket as the girl at the till... More

We took our bikes on the bus and rode down. Further than we thought but that was our fault for not researching it properly. Cold at the top even though really warm down in Annecy. Great fun, there are loads of paths to follow.

We spent 1 night during summer there. Hospitality was nice, with some good advises on animals to see in the surroundings. Food (baugiflette) was excellent! the facilities for sleeping / showering are perfectly fine for this kind of stop. We recommend it strongly!

Literally as they say the balcony of the alps. The mountains are visible everywhere. When we went, it was a cloudy day and Le Semnoz was completely in the clouds. After it cleared we could see the alps all around. The peak draws aviation enthusiasts where they can fly their model airplanes and paragliders. You can also buy freshly made... More

Great for cycling, paragliding and hill walking with amazing views of the surrounding mountain ranges. Good launch site.
