The exceptional environment of the peninsula and its majestic ‘Belle Epoque’ façade make the Impérial Palace a truly stunning destination. Surrounded by lakes and mountains, the charming four-star hotel is ideally situated in the heart of the Alps in Upper Savoy, only 30 minutes from Geneva airport. A symbolic building for the people of Annecy, it is located a few minutes away on foot from both the city centre and the beach. All great hotels are part of a vibrant locale, and the Impérial is no exception. The town of Annecy has a wealth of unique viewpoints and areas of nature among the lake and the mountains. The curious traveller can take a look at the Old Town with its captivating charm, and stroll along its many canals to the Musée Château, the castle museum that overlooks the city. The town — known as the Little Venice of the Alps — is also renowned for its variety of cultural events, including the one partly responsible for its nickname, the Venetian Carnival. The Impérial Palace combines the stylish high-society of the Alpine set with the youthful playfulness of the Riviera. With four excellent restaurants, multiple bars, and a casino, the hotel caters for those looking for a taste of a true Casino Royale experience (the bistro La Riva sits right in the middle of the casino’s rotunda, so there’s no need to leave the games for long). After a late night negotiating the ups and downs of the Baccarat table, you might feel in need of some deep relaxation: Impérial Palace provides the ideal setting for the pampering required. Overlooking Annecy lake and the gardens, the 600 square metre Cristal Spa offers real contentment with its six treatment rooms. The heated pool boasts its very own waterfall, and a Scandanavian ice fountain promises to reinvigorate the body and mind alike.
