In the past, the castle served as a military barracks and became a museum after the Ministry of Armies have purchased it in 1953.
The Menthon Saint Bernard is a castle built in the 13th century. Proudly situated on a rocky outcrop in the top of the town, offers a magnificent panoramic view of the whole area.
Château de Menthon means a house on a rock. This castle consists of 105 rooms. The Menthon family opened it for the public eyes.
Afterward, you have an optional opportunity to experience this beauty in a different way, by taking the boat and sailing around the lake. During the boat trip, see the tiny villages dotted at the shores of the lake and just enjoy the beautiful view.
