Later, from XVIe century, the hermitage welcome another Holy man, "Saint-François de Sales", bishop of geneva, who choose this hermitage to spend the last years of his life "with our goose quill and our rosary". This text has been extract from the following website : http://www.ermitage-saintgermain.org/

 

 To day, this hermitage is a haven of peace and contemplation for each person who is looking for natural and surnatural beauty.

 

It feels a kind of magic in this exceptionnal place, situated out of the main touristic roads. You will take your breath away with the Talloires bay, the lake of Annecy and the mountains all around. This place is without any doubt, deeply spiritually charged.
