Lake Annecy is such a beautiful sight. It is a vast body of crystal clear, blue water. There were sailing boats on the lake and there are lovely houses close to the edge of the water. The Alps are all around it is an artist or photographers paradise. Walking on the paths and drinking in the scenery was magical. On a very hot day we drank from a drinking fountain and the water, which comes directly from the mountains, was so pure and cold that we filled our water bottles to drink in the car.

Took the bus form Geneva and spent the day in Annecy - wandering the streets and seeing the sights. The lake is incredible and a great way to see it is by paddle boat! Take many pictures and make the folks at home very jealous!

It is a beautiful sunny day and perfect for taking cruise on the lake. Take just over an hour, the scenery is fantastic.

At 14 km long and 82metres at its deepest point Le lac d’Annecy is the third largest lake in France and the cleanest in Europe. It is also so beautiful Cezanne painted it. As you walk around it you can see why. Surrounded by the Alps it is stunning and a sports paradise. We walked but the most popular thing is to rent a bike. The track is good and follows the lake most but not all of the way. There’s almost every conceivable water sport, from pedallos to canoes, to motor boats to lunchtime cruises. You can also swim, fish, picnic etc.

Annecy is all about the lake. Easily accessible from all parts of the town, it is a picture postcard scene. You have to go down to the lakeside if you get the chance
