- On the main road you can catch a bus to and from Annecy or any other of the small towns around the lake or in the mountains. Use this link to find a service that suits your needs.
- Ferry service: From mid April to mid September a ferry will stop in Talloires several times per day. This will enable you to see the lake from a different perspective. You can also choose to get off and visit other villages around the lake rejoining a later service with the one ticket. Check departure details at the landing point on the lake or click this link.
- La Plage (The beach): Note that the beach is a paid beach (adults around 2 euro 30 and children around 1 euro 20) between 21 June and 30 August. It is usually cheaper after 5.30pm. At other times of the year entry is free. There are other beaches in either direction (Angon and Menthon-St-Bernard) if you want to try out different spots around the lake.
- Water Skiing: Brochures for the many activities in the area have been left in the metal cabinet in the living room for your perusal; however we would strongly recommend water-skiing with Geraldine or her husband Lionel at Blue Wake. They are delightful, speak French and English and are brilliant with all skill levels. They can also just take you on a tour of the lake. The contact number is 06 65 51 77 49.

- Restaurants: There are many restaurants in Talloires and they vary from simple cafe/bistro style to Michelin star quality. They are not all open all year and so you will need to check and they are often busy so its best to book. Click here for a listing of some in Talloires or here for Menthon St Bernard.
