We arrived in Annecy and the first thing we saw was the lake with the surrounding lawns and lots of space to sit down and relax. Quite a lot of locals enjoying a nice sunny day. Then we headed for the old town with narrow streets, lots of shops, lots of restaurants, cafes and quaint old houses with special atmosphere.... More

The view at the lake is spectacular. The water is clear and the mountains in the background were beautiful. The European gardens were beautiful with plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the view.

We visited Annecy and its Lac in early May 2013. It really is picture postcard perfect. The old town is charming and on the Sunday that we visited - which was a rare sunny day in the Spring of 2013 - it was market day, so the streets were lined with produce stalls and the place was humming.

Spent a great morning around the lake. Parked the car near the Hotel Imperial in Annecy (free parking) and then rented a bike from a nearby place (facing the hotel, to the right, on the bike path). Views are beautiful, clean fresh air, and cycling path well maintained (i only did about 10km down the west side of the lake).... More

A very beautiful lake with the attractive town of Annecy at its head - look for signs to the "Vielle Ville" (old town), and attractive villages around the lake, all in a stunning mountain setting. Lots of outdoor activities available in the lake and surroundings, including a long cycle track and a walkway right around the lakeshore.

I've been here so many time as I grew up visiting family here who live on the lake. You can never get bored of it. So much to see and do. I would in a flash suggest everyone to visit Anncey and the lake. A wonderful place to visit and live!

Great lake unmids the France Alps at perfect locations. Just take a drive around and enjoy the views especially at dawn. Go to Annecy town and have a coffee at the lakeside

A good place to stroll around. Peaceful and lovely. Definitely get out on the water, whatever craft you choose.
