The capital of Aravis

Thones is a charming little town at the bottom of Aravis Mount, in the Alps, at 3 km from Annecy.
During Winter, the visitors come to ski in the mountain nearby (free shuttles bring them to the pistes).
In Summer, they enjoy walking, riding a bicycle or bathing in the neighbor Lake of Annecy.
