Menthon-Saint-Bernard is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. Because of its proximity to Annecy and its settlements 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.[1]

At the waterfront of the lake between Annecy and Menthon-Saint-Bernhard, traces of prehistoric occupation have been found. Later over the centuries, at the foot of the castle of Menthon-Saint-Bernard, a few hamlets evolved.[2]
