We took the boat tour around Lake Annecy which was absolutely breathtaking. The commentary around the lake was great and it was comfortable, especially considering that the tour lasted for over an hour. I would advise anyone going in March to wrap up well though because it is really, really nippy if you're sitting on the open section of the... More

walking around the lake of Annecy is a wonderful experience. The city is very beautiful , the water of the lake is very clear and the mountains that suround the lake, all together form a magneficent place.

Lake Annecy is one of the nicest place in the area, regardless of the time of the year. I scuba-dive on a regular basis and you should see how it looks early in the morning with calm water and the surrounding mountains with a dash of snow! So come over and have a look!

Make sure you have a walk around the lake before sunset to enjoy the romantic atmosphere and taking lovely pictures of the canal!

We truly enjoyed our visit to the Lac d'Annecy region. The lake is crystal clear and has many swans and ducks. We visited in November and the boat tours were not in operation at the time but we hope to return again some time in the summer.

The water is crystal clear. You can boat in summer, hire a paddler, swim in summer. Otherwise take the time to walk around the lake. Relaxing and calm. Annecy is magical.

Annecy, a medieval town with beautiful mini canals running through, located on the edge of a lake, surrounded by mountains, with so much to see and do. The old part of town is quaint with cafes and restaurants on every sidewalk and lots of interesting shops to browse through. There is a typical French market two or three times a... More

It's a beautiful place to sit down and have your hot chocolate and enjoy the very clean water, the swans, the ducks, other birds and the view of the nearby mountains.
