Simply stunning. Great walkway around the lac, with views of the Alpes and gorgeous fresh air that clears the head.

It is really nice landscape and peaceful place, relaxing walks and superb lake... this is really a worthy place out of nowhere when you can get a bit aside of touristic places or villages... and you are by magic not far from civilization and nice restaurants...

This place is one of my favorite places I have ever visited. Very nice town, with great culture and beautiful lake surrounded by magnificent green mountains. It has a nice park beside it and it is close to the old town there...

Annecy is located along the Lac d'Annecy. It is a nice lake, but other than looking at it for a few minutes, there is not much to it.

Annecy is a french town with just 45 mins from Geneva border. This is a very b'ful town and what makes this town so beautiful is this lake around the city.

Annecy offers a good balance of site seeing and activities for families. We particularly enjoy the drive around the lake to enjoy the different views. There's lots of shopping in the old town. Saturday market has a lot of antiques and fun to find treasures.
