We were recommended this viewpoint by a fellow camper - and what a recommendation! We drove up via Doussard (which was rather hairy at times) and it was easy to park. A couple of nice looking places to eat but we only came for the...More

There are many viewpoints around Annecy, most requiring physical activity one way or another. Col du Forclaz is an exception as you can easily reach it by car. The views over the lake are just amazing. Highly recommended.

This view is spectacular - the way that the lake snakes for miles into the distance, surrounded by hills is just stunningly beautiful.

From this spot you can view the entire Anncey lake. It is fabulous. If you visiting Anncey you shouldn't miss it.

Cycled through- tough climb but worth it- best view of lake Annecy by far. Restaurants and bars available too, didn't visit but looked fine

Great view of the lake that has to be seen to be appreciated fully. Excellent viewing position for the paragliders who take off from here.
