Description

The Talloires Abbey is the heritage masterpiece of Talloires. 

Situated on the shores of Lake Annecy, the purest lake in Europe, Talloires has been recognised as a settlement since the eleventh century.

First with a chapel and then a monastery, its abbey, erected in the seventeenth century by Benedictine monks and now a 4-star hotel and restaurant appreciated for its comfort and extraordinary historical culture; a hybrid place that knows, in any season, how to offer a new dimension to relaxation, to celebrations and paties or to business meetings and conferences.

Nowadays Talloires Abbey organises many exhibitions which are open to the public.
