We visited in August and were absolutely amazed by this beautiful lake. We hired a some small boats and went out into the lake for a swim. What an amazing day.

Wow, after we walked through town we got to the lake and it is every prettier than the little town. The lake is absolutely stunning with the mountains around it. We walked a little of it but we plan to come back and either take a boat ride or drive around the lake.

Beautiful lake, with a rich history that you can find out in the Museum inside the Château d'Annecy.

I stayed here 2 nights while I was skiing nearby at La Clusaz. Although the weather was not charming initially, the city is. Nice pedestrian zone, lots of attractive sights, and although I only saw it from the car, the park along the lake, and the views of the lake, looked gorgeous.

Fell in love with the place over 10 years ago and love it still. The biking is excellent, the walking superb, the sailing divine, swimming lovely in the summer. In the winter - the skiing, walking, the sightseeing. All seasons have different activities to do - lovely

I have visited Lake Annecy several times and have yet to be disappointed, it remains a wonderful place for me. I have travelled there by motorbike and a fly/drive, both work really well. Lake Annecy is simply gorgeous! The water is so clear, sparkling blue on both sunny and dull days (we only had one dull day!) and very clean.... More

Where to start, be prepared to have your breathe taken away... Beautiful just doesn't come close. The lake is so stunning your able to drive all the way around it which is lovely, the back drop of the snow capped mountains is something else especially when the sunsets on them. There are so many historical places to visit here in... More
