The charming lakeside town of Annecy is a reasonably quick escape from the Pays du Mont-mountains Blanc’s and valleys!
The charming lakeside town of Annecy is a reasonably quick escape from the Pays du Mont-mountains Blanc’s and valleys! Residents of the Pays du Mont-Blanc enjoy day visits here throughout the year to appreciate the change of scenery: you may attend the Carnaval Vénitien, wander around the Parc de l’Europe, or ride a horse in the Parc de l’Europe. You may also take a bike ride around the lake on the Piste Vert, stroll around the Old Town, and visit the Château d’Annecy. In the summer, the average water temperature of Lake Annecy is 23°! The lake’s various beaches are great for relaxing and swimming, as well as diving, beach sports, and snack bars.Cran-Gévrier offers La Turbine, with interactive exhibitions for children which provides entertainment.If you only have one day to spend in Annecy, you must make the most of it! Therefore, we recommend that you do the following:Take a stroll along the shore of Lake Annecy for a fantastic start, then visit Annecy old town to see the canals and the Annecy castle museum.Lunch can be had in the old town (the famous local “tartiflette” if the weather is not too hot!). Finish with one of the Glacier des Alpes’ delicious ice creams.In the afternoon, you should attempt one of the lake’s nautical activities, such as wakeboarding, water skiing, or paddleboarding!
