Description

The reserve occupies part of the Roc de Chere, small forested mountain range above lake Annecy, between Menthon-Saint-Bernard and Talloires. It offers beautiful walks and points of view on the lake and the surrounding mountains.

Created in 1977 and with an area of 68 ha, it contains a great diversity of fauna and flora.
Here you can discover small forest mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles and insects.
Two opposing flora coexist: one mountainous ( ferruginous rhododendron, lycopod sélagine …)
and the other one, southern (maples of Montpellier, boxwood ...).
The very varied topography of the Roc which forms a set of microreliefs and therefore microclimates allows five major natural sets to be defined : the steep limestone slopes, the sandstone ridges, the central depression the marshy valley and the central plateau.
Located between 447 m and 601 m above sea level, this protected area can be discovered all year round throughout the seasons.
Animals must be kept on a leash.
