Annecy, also called the “pearl of French Alps”, is a small town between lake and mountains in the South of France. It lies on the Northern side of Lake Annecy.
In Annecy, you can find stunning mountains views, you can visit chateaux and, above all, you will have the chance to boat on of the clearest and cleanest lakes in Europe! You can have fun enjoying the beautiful landscapes and experiencing all the outdoor activities that the city provides.
The two canals and the Thiou river, lying through the Old Town, create a wonderful and breathtaking landscape: for this reason, Annecy is also known as the “Venice of the Alps”. In the past, the city of Annecy has also been the capital of the Savoy Province and home to Geneva’s administrative headquarters
Within the city, there are several art museums and renovated castles – such as the Palais de l’Ile and the Château d’Annecy – as well as green spaces and a renowned flower market. Last but not least, Annecy houses one of the most important film festivals in France, the International Animated Film Festival.
