Make a holiday rental apartment or accommodation in Annecy, France your home away from home

The town of Annecy, France sits on the northern shores of Lake Annecy, a spectacular lake at the foot of the Alps in the Haute-Savoie department of south-eastern France. The old medieval town of Annecy is a delightful place to be, where you can sit in a pavement café beside one of the many canals and feast your eyes on the view of mountains, Lake Annecy and alpine pastures. Self catering Annecy accommodation provides the ideal base for the exploration of not only Haute-Savoie, but Switzerland and northern Italy, the borders of which lie within half an hours drive from any Annecy property.

Things to do on holiday in Annecy, France

Although Annecy is a quaint medieval mountain town, there is plenty to see. The dramatic 12th Century Palais de L’Isle is the most famous sight, which sits on an island in one of the main canals through the town, originally build as the town prison. The 16th Century Chapel of the Holy Source is also well worth a visit from any Annecy apartment or villa.

However, most people take self catering Annecy accommodation for the range of sport and leisure activities available. Due to the varied landscape, from mountains to wide lakes, there is no end of possibilities for entertainment. On the still waters of Lake Annecy, kitesurfing, windsurfing, sailing, waterskiing and fishing thrive, as visitors and locals alike take an Annecy apartment to take advantage of the glorious conditions and spectacular views whilst enjoying the sport. Both instruction and equipment hire can be found both in the town and at various points around the shores of Lake Annecy itself.

Travel slightly further from your Annecy accommodation or if you stay in an Annecy gite or villa outside the town, the Alpine Mountain range a magnificent destination for walking, mountain biking, canyoning, mountaineering, paragliding and horse riding. Taking a self catering Annecy villa or apartment allows you that extra freedom, comfort and flexibility you need if you are going to head into the mountains for any of these activities, and having a large, open and private home to return to after a hard day of walking, riding or paragliding in Annecy is priceless. If you are heading to Annecy for paragliding or hangliding, try the Col de la Forclaz, around 20km from an apartment in Annecy town centre.

During the summer months, the town has an almost carnival atmosphere. The paved streets become awash with people and stalls, and throughout the summer there are a number for festivals and events. The Lake Annecy Festival in the first weekend of August in undoubtedly the largest, but the six day Animation Festival in June and the Noctibules Festival running over four nights in June are great times to rent an Annecy apartment too.

It is in a quiet village about 10 minutes from the shores of Lake Annecy. The interior is stylish, featuring stone timber and unique metal detailing. The owner Celine greeted us with a bottle of excellent local wine. The apartment comprises: a dining kitchen which is very well equipped including compact dishwasher and washing machine. Living room wiith sofa and large tv, with an alcove double bed. The bed is a little awkward to use being in an alcove with no space either side. Storage is also at a premium in the small space available, but neither caused us a problem. Compact ensuite shower room. As it is on the ground floor, there is a nice semi private sitting out area with a view of the mountain.

The position is fantastic & provides a truly relaxing environment to chill out while on vacation. The property is located at the foot of the arterial routes that lead to the ski resorts in the winter & also within 100 metres of cycling paths that lead to famous climbs completed in some of the Tour de France stages. The property is perfectly positioned to maximize use of the lake for boating, sailing or canoeing. The rooms are all fitted with en-suites that have been cleverly designed to create a sense of privacy. Large groups or families can can enjoy time together in the dining/lounge area but still enjoy privacy when required. Perfect place for an extended relaxing holiday.

It's quiet in the apartment and yet you exit the building right into the buzz of the market, shops and restaurants. It's well equipped and comfortable, and Sylvie was very welcoming and kind. Headroom is cramped up on the mezzanine and the occasional bumped head is almost inevitable for grown-ups (we were 4 adults), but we had a great week.
