Well-known for its winter sports and holiday destinations, including some of the country's best ski resorts, Haute-Savoie is a department in the Rhône-Alpes region bordering both Switzerland and Italy. You will find Lake Geneva and Switzerland to the north, the Aravis mountain ranges are southeast, and Mont Blanc, with the famous Mont Blanc Tunnel that crosses the border into Italy, to the south. This mountainous department offers great outdoor sightseeing, and has a large range of elevations from its low river valleys to its high peaks. These helped to create the second largest lake in France, Lake Annecy, and some of the best water in the world, such as Evian mineral water.
