Avoid vacation anarchy by going to Annecy

Known as the Venice of the Savoie, Annecy is universally adored for its canals, lake, and medieval old town. Perched on the banks of its eponymous lake, it makes an ideal base for your next alpine getaway, so book an Annecy vacation rental on the lake shore. Explore the Chateau d'Annecy, now a fascinating museum, potter around the shops of the Old Town, or take a boat out for a whizz around the lake. In summer, enjoy lunch in a pavement cafe, while in winter hunker down with a cheese raclette in a cosy mountain bistro.

Things to do

Castle in the clouds—medieval mayhem

A big draw to this pretty medieval city is the Chateau d'Annecy, an attractive restored castle-turned-history museum. It dates back to the 12th century when it was the grand residence to several Counts of Geneva. Climb the tower to the observatory, or witness the cool model alpine cabins and local folk art in the quirky Museum of Alpine Popular Art. It also hosts stargazing nights. Another popular attraction is the Palais de l'Isle, the town's history museum which is housed in a beautiful fairytale-esque castle.

Activities

Rock the boat, baby—lake fun in Annecy

Annecy is a real outdoorsy kinda place, with hiking, biking, or just messing about in boats, being the main activities. Take a brisk dip in its cool, clear waters, or rent a boat and take a picnic to one the hidden lake beaches which dot the banks. It's also a great base for some of the finest mountain hikes in the region. If you're feeling super brave, try your hand at hang-gliding from the Col de la Forclaz. Of course, it's just as much fun to potter around the medieval Old Town and pick up a souvenir or two.

Weather

Do you wanna build a snowman?

There's no bad time to visit Annecy. In the summer, its blue skies and endless sunshine draws the wealth of the town's visitors, especially during July and August when demand for Annecy vacation rentals is high. The average summer temperatures can often reach the high 70s, but it does drop a few degrees in the evenings, so pack a jacket. Spring and fall are equally pleasant times to visit, especially in May when the wildflowers bloom. But for snow bunnies, you just can't beat the Alps in winter when this medieval town twinkles under a dusting of snow.

Natural features

High on a hill stood a lonely goatherd

Perched on the northern banks of the Lake Annecy, this small medieval town is a 45-minute drive from Geneva. An Annecy vacation rental makes an easy base for some of the region's finest alpine hikes. If you're just after a leisurely walk to build up an appetite, then choose one of the easy lake trails which circumnavigate its shores. For something a little hardier, venture to Mont Veyrier, a moderate 4-hour hike which has magnificent views of the lake. Awash with wildflowers and birds, you may even spot an alpine chamois.
