What to bring with you ?
Charming B&B at Menthon-St-Bernard (Lake of Annecy, Haute-Savoie)

Snow chains / snow tires


We hardly ever use snow chains in the village. But they might be handy higher in the mountain or compulsory to reach snow resorts at times.

Keep in mind that in the Alps in winter, it can heavily snow any time, even while you are sleeping!

Snow boots


In the outdoors, forget about high heal shoes. Slip on shoes or ballerinas are great inside the house. Keep within reach snow boots to jump out of the car directly in the snow. Yes, even near the lake you are already reaching the snow!

Flash light


At night, a flash light will help you to walk safely, in the gardens, around the house, on the parking and even on the road down to the village.



Don't forget your bathing suit! How sad it would be for you not to dive in the fresh clear water on a hot sunny day. First swimmers are seen early June with water temperatures around 18°, summer season has high water temperatures above 24°. In September, the water cools down and late swimmers might have a try in October.

Walking boots


A good pair of walking boots will take you far and safe up in the mountains. There are so many paths to discover around the house.



Evenings and nights can be cool. A light woollen sweater will also be great to have with you through your day walks in the mountains. Temperatures can quickly change.
