Amazing and picturesque. People are friendly and helpful. Scenery is stunning with the mountains and serene lake. The city is planned for cycling, roller-blading, walking....for miles along paths following streams. Air is intoxicatingly pure as is the water. Many delicious restaurants along canals and world-class shopping is available, interesting medieval town to explore at your leisure as the general pace is relaxing. The city is built around canals hence a bit of Venice in the Savoie in France. Easy access by train from Paris.

one of the main attractions in Annecy. Enjoy the lake by going on a ferry, speding some time in les jardain d'europe or get a boat and go around. what ever you do, the lake is simply a treat for your eyes.

The boat trip with one stop - we chose Talloires - is great value. Good commentary and wonderful views. Eat at Cafe de la Place in talloires (in centre of village) and enjoy browsing - good tourist office will give you a map for a self guided walk

Perfectly clear water, sailing boats and snow topped mountains. Take a waterproof jacket, it's quite wet and very cold this week but definitely worth braving the weather for the stunning views.

We took 6 hours to walk around, stopping many times to take photos. We warmed up with afternoon 'tea time' at L'imperial which is the stunning large white hotel next to the lake which looks like a wedding cake. I highly recommend it for the old world charm.

Best way to appreciate the size and beauty of the lake. There are other villages around it, which you can't really appreciate from Annecy, it's better to get closer.
