La Salle des Gardes

This restaurant is in front of the Palais de l'Isle. The walls are from the XII century, the name comes from the fact that the guards of the Palais de L'isle (Old Jail) were having dinner there. They offer a big menu from specialities of Savoy, burgers, pizzas, mussels... It will be the perfect place to have lunch on the sunny terrasse!

L'île des Cygnes

Annéciens call it l'île aux cygnes, it is a small articial island (less than 30 meters of diameter) in front of Jardins de l'Europe (behind the City Hall, next to the Lovers Bridge). This island is just full of trees, bushes and greens, a perfect place for swans, ducks and all kind of birds! It was built in 1854 (and got an extension in 1859) next to the Thiou river exit/entrance and the Canal de Vassé. Because of the waves of the lake it was enhanced in 1883. In front of it, you will find the statue of Berthollet and a sundial. The first 2 couples of swans were given by Geneva City in 1857 and by the Maison de Savoie (Turin, Italy). Those swans started to use the island as their home sweet

Diots de Savoie

The diots are some sausages from Savoie. They can be plain sausages, smoked or with some cabbage. It also has nutmeg in it. It is pronounced diau. Before they were made during the autumn, when the farmers were killing the pigs and stocking food for the winter. You can grill them, but traditionnally they are boiled with white or red wine with onions. Enjoy them with some Apremont or Mondeuse wine. You can have them with boiled potatoes, crozets (Savoy Pasta) or polenta. During the summer, you can eat them cold with mustard. Below is the traditional recipe, but you can find more on the net: Diots au vin blanc * 8 diots * 75 cl of white wine of Savoie of course! * 2 onions * 2 spoons of flour *
