Along the footpath, in the alpine meadows and in remote villages, you will enjoy the landscape at your own pace. Plan on joining? Visit:
As a last suggestion, climb to the castles of Allinges. Up there an old and a new castle are sharing the hill, reigning and facing the lake. Accessible by bike from our hotel.
