In the Middle Ages the peninsula on which the Château de Ruphy was built was actually an island. The view opens out to take in the whole of Lake Annecy, the second biggest natural lake in France, after Lake Bourget. One of the cleanest lakes in the world, Lake Annecy was formed around 18,000 years ago when the great Alpine glaciers melted. It is fed by several small rivers running off the surrounding mountains, and flows into the River Thiou and the Canal du Vassé, both of which flow through Annecy.The Château at Duingt marks the boundary between the “large lake” to the north and the “small lake” to the south.
