This former 17th century Benedictine Abbey, enjoying a beautiful setting right on the lake and in the heart of the very picturesque Talloires bay, has been completely and lovingly restored to provide a very comfortable base for your stay on Lake Annecy.
The village centre is a slight uphill 200m walk and the Lake Annecy ferry 80m. The atmosphere at the Abbaye is refined but relaxed and the hotel is the perfect venue for a couple’s special break away.

Dinner comprises 4 courses, breakfast is a full buffet and all our guests also receive a welcome drink. Mondays and Tuesdays outside July and August the restaurant is closed, allowing guests the opportunity of trying one of the other highly rated restaurants in the resort.

Le Royal enjoys an ideal location on the edge of the old town of Annecy, a short walk (200m) from the lake. In a magnificent building dating from 1852, the old ‘Hotel d’Angleterre’ was honoured by the visits of famous people such as the Queen Victoria and Napoleon III.
