Annecy

 

Destination Annecy

Annecy is a beautiful and picturesque lake resort situated along an impressive lake which bears its name. Annecy is located only an hour travel time from Geneva Switzerland and its winding streets and narrow canals give Annecy a medieval atmosphere. Cobbled streets, outdoor markets, arcaded houses, cafes and an ideal position along Lake Annecy combine to make this charming French city a popular tourist destination. Surrounded by mountains, Lake Annecy has the reputation not only to be the second biggest natural formed lake of Europe, but also to be the cleanest.

Annecy is also referred to as the Venice of the Alps, Its scenery is breathtaking and an inspiration for many artists which you will find painting along the lakeshores. In the background, the colors of the mountains differ with the change of season: From bright green and deep blue in the summer, to spectacular shades of red and orange in the fall and clear white snow in the winter. Experience the beauty yourself by taking a boat excursion over the lake or by simply strolling through the park and watch old man playing a game of the typical French Pétanque.

Whether you are staying for a few days,or a 2 week vacation, Annecy has something to offer for everyone.
