With a prime location on the shores of Lake Annecy and within walking distance of the lively and upmarket town, the Imperial Palace is a classy four-star hotel behind an impressive Belle Époque façade.

There are 93 bedrooms with views over the stunning lake or garden. You would struggle to find a better view anywhere.  The Cristal Spa  adds to the already relaxing atmosphere.

With no fewer than three restaurants – from gourmet to bistro – as well as a popular casino, there’s plenty to satisfy without visiting the town.  But Annecy is a gorgeous place with narrow streets lined with shops, galleries, bars and restaurants. A dine-and-wine lake cruise is a grand way to spend an afternoon or evening.

With three courses within 30 minutes, the Imperial Palace is not only convenient it also provides the most elegant way to enjoy Annecy.
