Sitting on the shores of the dazzlingly turquoise eponymous lake, surrounded by towering snow-capped mountains, is the picture-perfect French town of Annecy. The town is filled with narrow cobbled streets and ancient buildings, making Annecy holidays perfect for getting lost while taking in the sights of local boutiques and the smells of bakeries, filled with mouth-watering pastries. The bridges over the lake connect the islands and give Annecy its charming old-world feel while offering views of its true treasure: Lake Annecy. The clear and peaceful waters reflect the ring of mountains that surround
it - and offer a fun way to see this beautiful place. If visiting in the summer, try white water rafting down some nearby wild rapids, or a gentle canoe in search of hidden beaches and picturesque views. Annecy holidays take you to the heart of France's majestic Alps, the perfect place to soak up the fresh air and the great outdoors as a family. Winter is an ideal time to explore the surrounding mountains, from skiing and snowboarding to tobogganing and snowshoeing, there’s fun for the whole family. If you're feeling adventurous, try some ice climbing before warming up with a mulled wine.
