If ever you have a day spare in the summer, visit the lake here. The gardens and scenery are stunning, surrounded by mountains and still waters. The park around the lake is very clean and kid friendly. The Sunday market is a bit over-rated, but the small boutique shops found in the small medieval alleyways are amazing finds.

Annecy is full of beauty and life. If you are looking for an active or a leisurely holiday or visit, then a visit to Annecy will not disappoint. The Lake, of course, is central to everything and offers little boat trips and there is a floating restaurant. A path all around the lake is a hive of activity and you... More

The lake is lovely in all directions. Ringed with mountains, looking away from the old town, gives a sense of natural beauty. The view of the town from the lake is is impressive. It could be a convenient stop along the way to Chamonix if you travel by train allowing one to avoid the chaos of Lyon. Make sure to... More

Lac d'Annecy is a beautiful, clear lake surrounded by mountains with lots of things to do for families. The town of Annecy was really fun to explore and there are lots of parks and playgrounds. Great hiking and water sports. Only downside - it's very busy especially near the swimming spots.

Absolutely beautiful place and lovely people with a Great Lake that is brilliant for swimming in especially as it is so warm, but still nice and refreshing when the sun is getting too hot

Beautiful huge lake with the clearest water in Europe, lots of adventure sports to take part in, or simply relax on the boardwalk.

One of the most beautiful lake in the world !!! the water is the most pure in Europe and perhaps in the world. With the mountains around, you can see the Mont-Blanc with good weather. I sincerly suggest you to rent a boat (with or without license) for half a day and turn around the lake. You can also rent... More

Very crowded during the summer, but for good reasons. The lake is full of activities for everyone, and the view is gorgeous. It also helps that it is near the famous french Alps and it is a must-stop for everyone on the way to Mont Blanc. Parking is a pain though!
