Annecy Lake

Annecy Lake

Nestled amongst the majestic French Alps and surrounded by stunning natural scenery lies the magical town of Annecy. Engulfed by the spectacular lake, Annecy is a place of dazzling natural beauty. Rich in history dating over 2000 years, this is none more evident than in the enchanting medieval heart of the old town, and by the glorious grand Chateau completed in 1565.
Although splendid in any season, in summer, the town comes alive with colour and activity. From the tree-lined main boulevard along the lake to the floral-lined canals and bustling market place, Annecy is a visitor’s dream.

Annecy can serve as the gateway to the French Alps and various sporting activities. There is something for everyone in Annecy.www.lac-annecy.com
