The Tournette (2,351 m) is a mountain in the Bornes Massif in Haute-Savoie, France. It is the highest of the mountains surrounding Lake Annecy and has a prominence of 1,514m, qualifying it as an Ultra.

It is possible to drive most of the way up, parking at Chalet De L'Aulp. From here the summit can be reached via a well marked path in around 3 hours. The final third of the climb requires some scrambling, but there are chains and ladders in all the difficult sections.
