The whole lake is very beautiful and so popular it was difficult to walk around on a Sunday. There are boat trips available and all kinds of activities available for the more active visitors as well as lovely green areas to sit and observe.

If you want to enjoy a summer weekend, Annecy is the place. The lake is so beautiful! There are awesome restaurants, ice cream parlors and lots of outdoorsy places to enjoy. Sine it gets dark late, there is plenty of time to enjoy the city. Park your car in one of the public places, sit by the lake and relax,... More

This lake is just magical. Driving around it takes about 30 minutes but I would highly recommend doing it at sunset. Leave town in an anti-clockwise direction because traffic coming back in during summer time banks up to about 8km... literally. Theres numerous spots to stop at on the lake which is why our drive around started about 2 hours... More

Mountains on the horizon make for great photo opts. Boat options are plentiful and can be arranged last minute. Some boats offer English and French others only have French guides.

The cool, clean water is absolutely brilliant. The beaches are great. Make sure to go for a dip on a hot day or take a boat trip around the lake!

We spent a week in Annecy this summer. It is a very pretty town, well worth a visit. The lake is beautiful, surrounded by lovely scenery. You can bathe in the lake or enjoy activities such as walking or cycling. There are lots of pretty villages within easy distance and we enjoyed the views from the regular cafés situated on... More
