Car Hire

If you are planning on venturing further than Annecy throughout your stay, hiring a car may be a good decision. Just bear in mind that when driving from Switzerland to France, if you choose to take the motorway, you will need a ‘vignette’. This is compulsory for all motor vehicles up to 3.5t, is valid for 14 months (1 December – 31 January of the following year) and costs 38.50€.

Parking in Annecy

There are plenty of places to park in Annecy, but it’s important to bear in mind that during peak times (summer months), parking can get extremely busy and can cost a fair bit if you are leaving your car there for an extended amount of time.

The closest parking to the Impérial Palace is situated right next to the hotel, just behind the main road.
