We had a great day in August. Travelled up on chairlift, soaked up the phenomenal views, went on some well signposted trails and headed back down the chairlift. At the bottom we enjoyed the luge and the rubber rings which we thought we excellent value...More

We had a great day out at La Sambuy. The drive up has spectacular views, but when you get to the car park you're only half way there. Next comes the chair-lift which was great fun, although I quickly realised I have no head for...More

Great family outing. Arrived mid morning and it was fairly quiet. Easy to locate and well signposted but up some steep bendy narrow roads! Two restaurant/bars at base level. Use chair lift for a lovely 20min ascent to about 1800m and the best views around...More

Taking the chairlift up La Sambuy is a great way to reach a fantastic view point over Lake Annecy. There are also very nice walks some of which are easy while others will take you to the summit of La Sambuy. I highly recommend the...More

We caught the chairlift at Sambuy in order to do some walking at the top of the mountain during our holiday in August 2016. The staff at the info centre at the bottom of the chairlift were really helpful and advised us to take some...More
