Well.... what a take off! This could be the best take off ever! The whole takeoff is covered in astro turf and in July and August the takeoff is manned with a steward. The scenery is amazing with views of the lake and mountains all around. Annecy can be seen to the right and a cool Chateau on the other side of the lake out front. There is a path to walk to the take off from the landing from field. It takes around two hours to walk up, but if you don't fancy that there's a shuttle from takeoff costing seven euro's. Near take off there are a few restaurants and cafes if you fancy something to eat or just fancy an ice-cream. From the top the there are many paths if you fancy some more hiking which can take you all over the mountains along the lake and over the back.
Wonderful place for a great view of the lake and to watch paragliders take off
