Le Clos des Sens is situated on a hillside, providing an interesting architectural structure with surprising yet refined interiors.
Its reputation was based initially around the restaurant with its two Michelin stars obtained in 2007 by Chef Laurent Petit, an artist in the kitchen. The rooms are decorated with the same creative rigour and style, contemporary, sophisticated and epicurean: a subtle reflection of Savoyard chalets with aged oak parquet flooring and wall panels in Canadian wood, iron fittings with a hint of oxidisation and Italian slate in the bathroom: and a jacuzzi in the heart of the bedroom with its own view.
Le Clos des Sens, a moment in time, a new gastronomic discovery, in equilibrium between the sky and the lake.

Le Clos des Sens
English spoken
10 rooms with mini bar, flat screen TV, satellite channels, telephone, safe, coffee machine and courtesy tray. 8 rooms have a wood or ethanol fire.
In 2013 a further 70m² loft suite was added with the same equipment as the other rooms, and an ethanol fire: the jacuzzi is underneath a glass stargazing roof and the roof window becomes a private balcony.
At the end of 2012, two top floor loft suites were added, around 70m² each, with a panoramic view over Lake Annecy.
Lift access to rooms, and rooms for people with reduced mobility.
Gastronomic 2 Michelin star restaurant, with a refined and personalised cuisine, conditioned every day by seasonal produce and enhanced by the culinary inquisitiveness of the chef, Laurent Petit: "An object, a particular product, words, a meeting, come together to create the next dish."
