Annecy and its magnificent lake surrounded by mountains is an ideal destination in the Alps.
Located not far from Geneva and Lyon, Annecy is a haven of relaxation. Annecy is at its best during the summer, bustling with tourists in its "old town", not to be confused with the small adjacent town Annecy-Le-Vieux especially on Sunday with the market boasting local produce, cheeses, breads and fruits. The sandy beaches around the lake of Annecy are all very clean and inviting as the weather can get very pleasant between May & October.
Annecy features many restaurants offering the "plats savoyards" such as raclette, tartiflette and cheese fondue as well as brasseries serving seafoods, salads and other local delicacies.
Visit the "old town" with its cafés and bars dotting the old cobbled streets, the Chateau d'Annecy on top of the hill offers panoramic views of the narrow streets and further up, the "Visitation" is a large church overlooking Annecy, its lake and surrounding mountains.
Annecy is also a good base to discover the "savoyard" villages: Thônes is a typical mountain village, home of the Reblochon cheese and celebrity-chef Marc Veyrat, plenty of small charming villages such as Talloires or Veyrier-du-Lac are spread all around the lake easily accessed by car or by bike, a cyclable track runs all around the lake. Annecy is an ideal holiday destination for couples as well as for families.
