To cool off in the summer

The Haute-Savoie is right at the heart of the Alps and is full of little (and bigger) aquatic hidden gems in the midst of the mountains.
In Savoie Mont Blanc, we particularly enjoy being able to set off on a hike in the cool mornings, then relaxing on the shores of a lake in the afternoon.
Here is our special selection of swimming spots where you’re guaranteed to be able to cool off in the summer!

At the heart of the Giffre Mountains

The leisure complex is built around 2 lakes and is away from the centre of the village. It covers a surface area of around 10 ha. The perfect place to relax with friends or family. You can walk, fish, relax or run here.


A little further afield...

A little further afield, towards Chablais, there are some other superb lakes with areas for swimming!
