a historic city

To speak of Annecy is to evoke a rare and privileged quality of life that has been acclaimed both near and far for centuries, and which attracts an ever-increasing number of inhabitants and visitors each year. It is about depicting a picture postcard region set in the heart of mountains towering above the purest lake in Europe. And all of this against the background of an old town crisscrossed by canals infused by the Thiou River and which have resulted in Annecy’s poetic nickname of the Venice of the Alps.
Strolling through its narrow, paved streets during walks will take you through vaulted arcades sheltering bistros and restaurants in colorful markets spilling out onto the streets, past the Château d'Annecy square on the Quai de l'Évêché, as well as inviting terraces and national monuments, the Palais de l'Ile, Annecy National Stud Farm, from the Hôtel de la Monnaie to the Hôtel de Sales, from the Basilique de la Visitation to the ancient Palais episcopal (bishop’s palace). Every step you take will lead you through a place brimming with both history and many tales.

Gourmet pleasures at the heart of your stay in Annecy

Annecy and its surroundings are full of great places to eat and drink. Both the town and the lakefront have countless surprises in store for you that will delight your palate throughout the seasons and are suited to all tastes and all budgets. Be prepared to be pampered and enjoy whatever takes your fancy at any particular time.
