Games of pétanque in the shade of the great cedar tree
That’s right! There is more to life than modern activities such as Segway, electric scooters, stand-up paddleboard and yoga. In Annecy, there are also traditions that have been rooted in local life for generations. Pétanque is one such timeless example, and was here long before Saint-Tropez made it a tourist attraction on the Place des Lices. While in the shade of the ancient cedar tree in the Pélican Hotel gardens, test your mettle with friends and family. We lend you the equipment, of course, so you don’t have to pack the heavy balls in your car or your suitcase when you come to our mountains for a holiday!
