We visited Lac de Roselend as a day trip from Annecy, it was about 90 minutes each way and I was a bit nervous that it wouldn’t be worth it as I hadn’t heard too much about it.

Stunning resevoir surrounded by high peaks with a number of small restaurants overlooking it, one just below Col de Pre has a particuarly good view.

Thank Jamby
