A visit to the beautiful Hautecombe Abbey on the shores of Lake Bourget.
Hautecombe Abbey is worth visiting because it is somewhat isolated on the shores of Lake Bourget. You can either come by car or by boat from Aix-les-Bains (it is the easiest). Beware of the opening hours because the site is always in activity and the visit is forbidden during the masses. The visit can be very short if you don't attend the services, you can see everything in less than an hour, the site is not very big and many places are not open to the public. Apparently the visit is more interesting for the heritage days in September. It's up to you to see if the abbey is worth the trip but the visit could be better organized.
