Annecy in Haute-Savoie is one of the most charming and picturesque little cities in France.

Annecy – Venice of the Alps

Annecy is known as the Venice of the Alps thanks to its famous lake plus a network of little canals that criss cross the town.

It’s a truly beautiful small city that’s blessed with more than one gorgeous lake, local ski resorts, stunningly pretty villages close by, awesome views, and fabulous local produce – including the most delicious cheese.

The old town of Annecy is an absolute must see, it’s not huge and is easy to walk around.

Pick up a map from the tourist office to get your bearings because there are lots of winding narrow roads and it would be easy to miss something – and you don’t want to do that!

Annecy’s most famous attraction is of course it’s lake, one of the most beautiful in the world. The turquoise coloured water (caused by plankton on the bottom of the late) is said to be the purest in Europe, fed by melted snow on the mountains.
