Menthon-Saint-Bernard is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. Because of its proximity to Annecy and its settlement within Manigod, La Clusaz, La Croix Fry and Grand Bornand Menthon-Saint-Bernard has become a resort place since the end of the 19th century.
At the waterfront of the lake between Annecy and Menthon-Saint-Bernhard traces of prehistoric occupation have been found. Whereas later over the centuries, at the foot of the castle of Menthon-Saint-Bernard, a few hamlets have been evolved.
