Resort Info

An idyllic setting, close to Switzerland and Italy, the city is located in a deep gorge on the Thiou river at the northern end of Lake Annecy. Within easy reach of the mountains of the Chaîne des Aravis and the plains of Albanais, the location has many assets; The magnificent Lac d'Annecy; the Thiou, an industrial route that is now a tourist attraction; the great unspoilt forest of Le Semnoz; the beautiful nature reserve of the Roc de Chère; the extensive Plaine des Fins, which has allowed the town to expand unhindered.

 

Annecy is often called the French Venice. Its beautiful medieval old town is intersected by small canals and flower decked quays. The 12 century Palais de l’Isle is an island fortress in the River Thiou which was once a prison has splendid views of the old town. The bustling streets, delightful street cafés where you can watch the world go by and interesting shops make it a superb place to relax. Annecys local market is held on Tuesday in Rue Ste-Claire.
