Annecy, France - April 2005

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.
