Just thirty or so kilometres apart, Annecy and Le Grand-Bornand are among   the major assets of Annecy Mountains. Ideally located at the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, close to Switzerland and Italy, Annecy Mountains is a top-quality destination, a land hosting international sports competitions, the  headquarters of industrial flagships and outdoor sports and a great «playground» for endless discoveries. Here, everything seems possible…

Annecy, a great place to live

Whatever the season, experiencing Annecy is truly unique. The town now has 130,000 inhabitants and is at the focal point of a region, with strong, permanent links to the surrounding mountains and ski resorts.
A lakeside city with the Town of Art and History label, Annecy offers its inhabitants and visitors four seasons that are rich in events, leisure activities and passion. Annency is the main economic centre of the Haute-Savoie region and is home to numerous companies specialised in image processing, digital technology and outdoor leisure activities. With Le Haras, the future flagship area, Annecy will be providing inhabitants and visitors with an «urban oasis», where animated cinema, gastronomy and a landscaped park will all feature. Annecy, a city of moving images and a city of sport! Here outdoor sport enjoys an exceptional setting between the lake and the mountains. Before the Biathlon World Cup, on September Annecy will be hosting the «Martin Fourcade Nordic festival» at the magical venue of Le Pâquier, facing the lake. Annecy biathlon capital in summer… and this winter

Le Grand-Bornand: the village of “BO!VIVRE”

Le Grand-Bornand is a real skier’s dream. Beautiful chalets, including over 400 dating from the 17th century, stand side by side with sports and leisure facilities in harmony with the surroundings. The town is regularly rated among the top French mountain destinations. Le Grand-Bornand is a ski centre, but also a bohemian and gourmet town, with a new «arty» style filled with authenticity and elegance. These paradoxes have been raised to an art form. An art of living in the mountains. Differently, deeply. Here you can find a new pace to life. If you are contemplative by nature, then you can delve into a range of well-preserved landscapes and creative craftsmanship, and enjoy the luxury of a life-saving break. Seekers of thrills, meanwhile, can enjoy an outstanding events programme, featuring the 14th Glisse en Coeur charity event on 24, 25 and 26 March 2023.
