Our Talloires Tourist Guide 

Calm and Relaxating Talloires!

What we love most about Talloires is the calm and relaxation. Away from the madding crowds, Talloires really comes into its own with three beaches, four ports and a cluster of boutiques, restaurants and hotels, most of which have incredible lake-side terraces to dine on.

Geneva to Talloires transfersThe quality of the hotels is exceptional. Most are three or four star and many feature in the traveller's bible that is the Michelin Red Guide, so you can expect exquisite service from the likes of the Auberge du Pere Brise, Le Cottage Brise and the Hotel Abbaye de Talloires. The gastronome is well catered for in Talloires, with half a dozen establishments making it into the famous foodie guide.

Despite the extreme comfort of your hotel room and the gorgeous food, we recommend that you do actually venture out and explore Talloires. The centre is typical Savoyard with small chalets and large manor houses nestled on the steep banks overlooking the glistening lake.

Geneva to Talloires transferTo help you make the most of your stay in Talloires, the tourist office offers 'Talloires en Liberte' which is a free guest card available from selected accommodation providers. The card entitles you to taste many of the leisure activities in and around Talloires, including unlimited access to the paying beaches, mini golf and tennis, half day bike hire, one hour on a pedalo, a kayak and a wind surf, one green fee at the golf course, a single ticket on the lake ferry boat and a visit to the Chateau.

There's plenty of culture in Talloires too, with the famous Chateau du Menthon St Bernard, the Abbaye de Talloires and Saint Germain church. The best way to find out more about these buildings all steeped in history is to join a guided visit. These leave every Tuesday evening from the Tourist Office.

Talloires transfersWater lovers will be in heaven in Talloires. The lake is the cleanest in Europe and perfect for swimming and other watersports. If you want to embrace the inner daredevil in you, try wakeboarding or wake skate (which are both much cooler and trendy than water skiing!). If you fancy checking out what you can see at the bottom of the lake (and we're told some parts is up to 80m deep) there is also a diving school at Talloires.

All of the three beaches (Talloires, Angon and Espace Lac-Angon) in the Talloires area are paying beaches. This does mean, however, that they are spotlessly clean, there are lifeguards on duty and changing and toilet facilities - all perfect for a safe and relaxing time on for all the family.

Other activities on offer include tennis, the superb 18 hole golf course, and horse-riding. You can also hire bikes and ride around the lake (over 40km in total) or explore closer to Talloires, where the dedicated cycle path now goes from the village centre to Plage Anjon.

How to get to TalloiresIf it's hot hot hot lakeside, how about heading into the mountains that watch over Talloires and the lake? There's Dents de Lanfon at 1768m and Le Lafonnet at 1768m and both boast many walking routes, some quite full-on and others more for the leisurely stroll. For those with a head for heights, you can hike to the summit of the La Tournette at 2351m.

The best season to visit Talloires is definitely the summer, when all the villages on the lake come alive with events on and off the lake, entertainment and exhibitions, whilst the restauranteurs open their lakeside terraces for food with a view. Mountain Drop-offs provides private transfers by mini bus to Talloires in the summer from Geneva Airport, offering excellent value for money for groups of up to eight passengers. Once in resort, there's no need for a car, with Lake Annecy ferry boats and public transport to take you around.
