Annecy, castles, wine tasting, and cheese
After an exciting tour of Annecy, we will take you to a private cheese factory where the finest Savoyard cheeses such as Reblochon, Abondance, and Tomme are produced. The farm hosts will share the secrets of cheese-making, taking you through the workshops and rooms where the cheese matures. At the end of the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to taste and, if desired, purchase your favorite products.
Following that, we’ll enjoy lunch at a Savoyard cuisine restaurant or at the farm.
As an optional addition to the tour, you can choose to:
– Visit a castle.
– Attend a wine tasting lesson from Annecy’s best sommelier.
– Take a boat trip on the lake.
After strolling through Annecy, you can look forward to an excursion to the oldest city in Savoy – Aix-les-Bains. It is among the most renowned thermal resorts in France, distinguished not only by its rare architectural splendor but also by its exceptional wealth of history and nature.
Upon request, the excursion to Aix-les-Bains can be replaced with Chambéry – the capital of the County of Savoy.
Following the cultural program, we invite you to a tasting of 8 flagship wines from Savoy at one of the leading local wineries. In addition to the wine, we recommend trying a Savoyard cheese and charcuterie platter.
After the excursion, we suggest having lunch at a restaurant specializing in frog dishes.
Departure is possible from any city in France and Switzerland.
