    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.

    Fondest memory: Annecy is beautifully set by the lake and it is dominated bt its castle, once the home of The Counts Of Genevois. From the lake the town looks particularly beautiful.

    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.

    The lake of Annecy

    Annecy

    Favorite thing: The lake receives only rain and spring water, what makes it one of the cleanest lakes in Europe. The lake of Annecy appeared 18,000 years ago and now covers 27km2.
