    A mountain!

    Favorite thing: This is the magnificent view from the lake. Annecy is close to the Alps and the Swiss border and it feels very fresh around here. The mountains provide a great backdrop to the lake.

    Favorite thing: This is the Monastery Church in Annecy, it stands on a hill just out of the town. You would pass this way on your way up to the woods that lie high above the lake.

    Favorite thing: Look at this selection of Squashes at one of the stalls in the market at Annecy. We don't get such a variety at home, at least not in the places that I visit!
