Annecy would be one of my favourite places so far in our travels around France. Located in the French Alps, this lakeside town has a winning combination of a gorgeous freshwater lake, a backdrop of mountains and a beautiful medieval town with canals running through it. A friend mentioned to me that it looks like a cross between Venice and Amsterdam. That sounds about right to me, don’t you think?
Highlights of Annecy included a refreshing swim in the lake on a hot summer’s day, meeting some friendly locals who invited us to join them for a picnic by the lake and walking through the town where every corner you turned deserved a picture.
