Walkable Annecy in Winter

We are planning on staying at the Adagio Annecy Centre over New Years for one week.

Without a car will we still be able to walk to restaurants, shops and markets?

Will there still be cheese shops, bakeries and food markets open during this time?

Thanks!

It is about a 10 minute walk to the old town of Annecy and the nearest shops are much closer. Shops will be open as normal, i.e. closed during lunchtime.

Adagio City is in the center ! All shopping like Galerie Courier, Galeries Lafayette, Restaurants, gift shops, Buses, Cycles, are very closed ! Don't rent a car it will not be necessary !

If you want to walk in the nature but in the city center, try "la balade du thiou" (the Thiou walk)

I think it is an unfortunate misspelling by florentsc. I think "close" was the intended word.

How late are the Christmas stalls open? We'll not be there until 8ish.

Are there any or many restaurants/pubs/brasseries open 'til 10 or 11pm on a weeknight? It's our last night in Europe before returning, and while we don't want clubs or parties, we would like to have some good wine and/or beer in a cozy setting for our last evening.

Everything is open and the Christmas market is lovely. Pop into the Tourist Office in the Bonlieu and ask for a free walking guide - it features 4 simple walks and tells you a bit about the buildings. Have a great time!
