Annecy and the French Alps
Annecy has an idyllic location on one of the loveliest lakes in the Alps and is surrounded by dramatic peaks. Our 3 star superior hotel is only a few minutes walk from the town and lake. Annecy is home to many monuments and a 12th century castle that overlooks the narrow cobbled streets and pretty canalside paths of the old town. In addition to providing an excellent base for excursions, time should be reserved for a day at leisure in Annecy.
