About Haute-Savoie

A pretty alpine slither of France, set between Switzerland and Italy, Haute-Savoie is a charming lake or mountain holiday destination. Visitors from within France and elsewhere have long flocked to lakeside Annecy for idyllic lakeside summers, and to the trendy mountain towns of Chamonix, Morzine, Megève and others for superb skiing and adventure sports. Accommodation options include pretty chalets as well as luxurious waterfront hotels, fit for a whole host of tastes and budgets. Many of the best places to stay in Haute-Savoie are also known for their fabulous cuisine: foodies will find themselves spoilt for choice.

If you’re dreaming of lazy lakeside days of swimming, kayaking, boating and fishing, look to Annecy, Talloires or Evian-les-Bains. On the shores of Lake Geneva — also known as Lac Léman — Evian is just moments from the Swiss border, allowing travellers to experience both countries. Keen skiers, snowboarders, hikers and mountain bikers should make for the hills. Expect stunning views of Mont Blanc from Chamonix, Argentière and Megève, as well as fabulous skiing in the Grand Massif region around Flaine, Les Carroz and Samoëns.

The Haute-Savoie region is famous for its distinctive culture, which you’ll notice in its architecture, food and wine. Tuck in to delectable fare in buzzy bars and eateries, and enjoy a fantastic après-ski vibe before retreating to one of the best places to stay in Haute-Savoie. These spots fill up particularly fast during the winter months; book your trip well in advance.

The Best Places to Stay in Haute-Savoie

For Lakefront Charm

  • Hôtel Beau Site sits slightly above its own private beach accessed through leafy, sloping gardens. Fresh, stylish interiors are clad in dove grey, taupe and steel blue, the tented lakeside space is very special, and families will adore the friendly vibe. Cycle, swim, fish and try your hand at watersports on Lake Annecy.
  • Hotel les Cygnes was built on the shores of Lake Geneva in the 1920s, and proudly retains its classic elegance. The 36 rooms and suites offer flexible options for families or couples, and guests have access to a swimming pool and private beach with pontoons and boat moorings. Enjoy watersports and mini-golf before sampling regional fare at the two restaurants. A charming lakeside hotel.
  • Abbaye de Talloires is a stunning converted monastery, perched on the edge of Lake Annecy. Undoubtedly one for history buffs or romantics, this is a hugely characterful hotel, complete with vaulted and beamed ceilings, antique furnishings, rich textiles and free-standing tubs in big bathrooms. Traditional lakeside luxury.

For Foodies

  • Le Hameau Albert 1er has been owned by the Carrier family since 1903, and has a dazzling reputation as one of Chamonix's top hotels. Expect elegant interiors, a soothing spa and two terrific restaurants: Pierre Carrier's two-Michelin-starred gourmet eatery, and the more laid-back La Maison Carrier. A luxurious favourite.
  • Flocons de Sel in Megève has just nine chic rooms, with wooden touches and cowhide-topped furnishings. Foodies will adore the three Michelin-starred restaurant, where Chef Emmanuel Renaut uses Savoie ingredients to reimagine regional classics with a twist. Fabulous.
  • La Maison Bleue - Yoann Conte is a glamorous restaurant-with-rooms on Lake Annecy. Pick this place for the eight indulgent, alpine-inspired guestrooms — complete with wood panelling and lake views — and the terrific, two Michelin-starred restaurant, headed by chef-owner Yoann Conte. Timeless, intimate and romantic.
  • Clos des Sens is a chic, five-star hotel with 11 individually designed contemporary guestrooms. Chef Laurent Petit has been awarded three Michelin stars for his fabulous cuisine, inspired by local produce — including the lake's freshest seafood. A feast for the senses, close to Lake Annecy.
  • Auberge du Père Bise is right on Lake Annecy. It stands out, however, because of its long-standing reputation as one of France's most famous inns. We like this spot best as a waterfront pad for food-focused grown-ups or romantic couples. Chef-owner Jean Sulpice's restaurant has been awarded two Michelin stars: it's an absolute gem.
  • La Ferme de Cupelin has seven characterful rooms and suites, as well as a welcoming outdoor pool, in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains. The real draw is the gourmet restaurant, where Chef Romain Desgranges takes great pride in serving delicious dishes crafted from top-notch local produce. The six-course Promenade au Mont-Joly is fantastic.
