With the Semnoz and the Bauges as a backdrop, the village of Mûres is one of the “green lungs” of the Grand Annecy at an average altitude of 500 m. It is bordered by the river Chéran, which has its source in the Bauges Massif. The landscape is characterised by rolling hills. The “Château de Pierrecharve”, a former fortified house from the 13th century, is one of the village’s sights. All that remains is its 17 m high tower, situated on a 40 m high molasse rock.
