Château des Avenières, a romantic, charming hotel just 20 minutes from Geneva

facade of Chateau des Avenieres in the AlpsThe Château des Avenières is a charming and romantic hotel halfway between Geneva and Annecy, in Savoy

In the heart of the Avenières estate, a Belle Epoque chateau rises from a stone foundation, facing a terraced garden. The castle’s history begins in 1904, when a young American heiress visited Avenières, fell in love with the view, and decided to build a chateau on the grounds. Her husband, an engineer and astronomer, became the driving force behind the project, devoting himself to the building, and in 1914, bestowing it with electricity and running water.
The interior is cozy and stylish, marrying soft hues with rich materials that harmonize beautifully with the architecture. Elaborate wood paneling and spectacular mantelpieces; ultra-comfortable rooms with superb views of Mont Blanc with Lake Annecy in the distance.
