Semnoz was the site of a summit climb in the 2013 Tour de France. At 1, 699 m (5,574 ft) above sea level, it was a feat for any professional cyclist. Fortunately, you can master the mountain by car and visit the summit’s highest point for spectacular views of the surrounding peaks on the horizon and the villages dotting the land below your feet. Using our world travel planner, Annecy attractions like Semnoz can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

A very short drive from Annecy, and you are up high facing the Mont Blanc, gorgeous views, lots of animals and easy walks with kids. more »
To do absolutely! Breathtaking view, many free parking spaces (even in high season). In barely 30 minutes of driving (quite good) we found ourselves in a cool place at an altitude of 1700m, facing the Mont Blanc with a 360° panorama as far as the eye can see. Gondola lift available but not mandatory, we got in the car and were able to enjoy two other exceptional views of the road.
Beautiful place with wide open spaces. Perfect for a family walk or dog walk, or just to enjoy the fresh air by ourselves. Clean environment, and many different little paths to take and walk in a loop.
