My wife and I recently spent several days on this lake. I have been to France many times, but never in this region, and I can't believe it has taken us so long to discover it. The lake is crystal clear, opportunities for sightseeing and recreation abound, and the town of Annecy is delightful (as are the various neighboring villages).... More

The lake in Annecy was very nice. My friend and I rented a pedal-eau and enjoyed the lovely view of the park, the mountains, the boats and the sun! The park is crowed some food kiosks and ice cream were present.

This is an attractive lake surrounded by mountains. Most people go only to Annecy. It is worthwhile going to another little village on the other side of the lake. We went to Talloires where the cliffs and mountains provided more dramatic scenery. For me, the views of the lake were prettier in Talloires.

Situated at the edge of a lake with mountains on the other side, Annecy is absolutely beautiful. There is a sort of old town and new town sections - the old town area being very pretty too. A little touristy I guess but well worth a visit if you are anywhere near (its only an hour and a half from... More

It is a qaint small town with both the canal, though small, and the lake to enjoy. you can suit our self as bo the ends are equally bustling with activity. You have artists performing various feasts on the streets of the town which can be quiet amusing. There are loads of eating options along the canal too with a... More

Spent a great week around Lac d'Annecy and loved it. Spectacular scenery and lots of outdoor activities and some not so active ones too. Annecy itself was lovely, but busy, and some of the little towns around the Lac were excellent for a visit.

The lake is very picturesque on a sunny day with many activities available, but in June it was very busy, the traffic, noise and the general bustle on the north side of the lake was not pleasant for me. The southern side is much quieter but there is still a lot of traffic. The restaurants and hotels in Annecy and... More
