We are constantly amazed at how few people know about Annecy, France. Perhaps the French want to keep a few places just for themselves, and this is one of them!  Often called the Venice of the Alps, Annecy has spectacular scenery with a beautiful lake framed by the mountains and a lovely medieval town complete with picturesque canals. It’s a particularly easy trip from Geneva, Switzerland as it is only an hour drive away.

This Alpine town in southeastern France is a great place to relax and enjoy the view – one of those places we’d like to just go and stay for several days. Why not start by locating a hotel in Annecy? And here’s a link to a great overview tour you might enjoy.
