“Annecy, border of Lac Leman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

We went to Annecy for the day from Lutry and Pully, in Switzerland, where we were staying with family. We drove all around the lake and up into the mountains surrounding the lake. We had lunch in a little cafe around the lake but we cannot remember the name. We sat outside with the lake just across the road. They were very hospitable. We went into the Old Town which was really interesting with lovely old buildings and lots of interesting shops. We had drinks in the square in the sunshine and pottered about. There were lots of places we could have visited and this is not very helpful, except to say it was a lovely place to visit but I do not manage walking in the hot sunshine. We would have liked to have visit the main part of the town too but it was far too hot. However, well worth a visit and it looked as if it was very interesting. A member of my family has moved over there, so hopefully will get to visit again soon. I think most people would enjoy visiting Annecy at any time of the year.

The lake is beautiful. Make sure you take a trip on one of the boats that leave regularly from the town. And if you have a car take a drive around the lake to discover some of the spectacular villages that lie on its banks

“Beautiful lake cruise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Don't miss taking a cruise on Lake Annecy. We were there in October, so we could only take the one hour cruise but it was definitely worth it. It's a beautiful way to see some of the small villages round the lake and the gorgeous mountain scenery.
