Semnoz is an excellent resource quite close to Annecy for skiing options in winter and bike / hike in the summer. Can be a little slow in winter @ the weekend but during the week and in the summer quick to / from Annecy.

A quaint and very touristy "old town" section of a much larger city. There are some very picturesque scenes/views along the river. Lined with restaurants/cafes with good and often overpriced fare. Saturday market brings throngs of vendors and shoppers. The best part of our visit...More

Enjoy the historical centre at night. It is magical, and so beautiful. Also, stop for a crepe at one of the local small restaurants, well worth it.

Great place to do everything. City life, history and outdoor activities abound. Lake Annecy is great to bike around or swim and boat in. Especially exciting when the Tour de France comes nearby in July!

Annecy le Vieux, The Old Town, is a beautiful picturesque place to visit. All the buildings are old, you walk along the canal and there are many restaurants and souvenir shops everywhere... a really wonderful place to spend and afternoon....

We visited here 12 years ago, and came back - still a lovely town to visit. The canal walk with restaurants still excites and the lake is stunning as well. The one thing we noticed different - the water in the canal around the island...More
