The town has a huge park next to the lake. Beautiful flowers everywhere , canals are surrounded by narrow winding walkways, cafes, brasseries, glacé/sorbet, crepe, pizza shops are all around. People sit in outdoor tables enjoying the atmosphere. The weekly food market is huge and the best fresh produce in many stalls is sold there. Huge mushrooms, freshly baked breads,... More

The most beautiful lake I've ever seen. Picturesque scenery surrounds the lake. Actually spectacular. A boat trip is a must. Tranquil waters and sights to see like Castles, snow capped mountains etc. Stunning.

I regularly attend surgical meetings in Annecy. The beautiful old town is right at the lakeside with channels grossing into the town. Many very good restaurants and bars invite to relax, the water of the lake is crystal clear against a backdrop of the mountain range. The air is fresh even in summertime and the pace of life is relaxed.... More

Rent a paddle boat, let the kids do the paddling, it makes for a lovely peaceful afternoon! You can walk around the lake but to walk the entire circumference would take while. The surround gardens are pleasant too. You can do a lunch or dinner cruise but it was a bit pricey.

Beautiful setting with magic walks for every age group. Lots of activities during the summer period e.g boat tours, boat hires and bush walks up in the hills.

A mix of "Swiss" style of peaceful lake plus petty historical old town , a great hideaway for relaxing,sipping a coffee and enjoy yummy French cousin eat the same time feeling the history.
