With a largely military history this chateau has been tastefully restored to reflect it’s place in history. Standing in a prominent position overlooking Lake Annecy, allow plenty of time to absorb all it has to offer.

Visited the chateau with family, truthfully not worth the visit. Some interesting displays about boats and their history, some modern art 🤔 and a bit of view over the town. Really not worth the effort!

If you expect a historically renovated castle, skip this one. The rooms are filled with a number of exhibitions with specific themes (modern art, marine biology). For those into these topics, and who speak French, this is probably an OK attraction to visit. For those...More
