Annecy is one of the most charming and attractive towns in the French Alps. The town in situated at the northern tip of Lac d’Annecy and surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The lake itself is supposedly the cleanest lake in all of Europe and based on the beautiful turquoise color, I would have to agree!
The medieval quarter is wonderful, with the canals, the flower-covered bridges and the quaint streets. It’s a beautiful sight, especially on market day when all the vendors have arrived to sell their wares.
The Chateau d’Annecy sits high on a hill with spectacular views of the surrounding lake and mountains. Definitely worth the visit.
