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.

The alpine meadows which surround Annecy are dotted with golf courses too. Anyone interested in playing a round from their Annecy property will be spoilt for choice as there are a range of large, open courses to choose from, all within a very reasonable distance of an apartment in Annecy.

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 ideally located for a 20 minute drive to the slopes of La Sambuy, or you can catch the bus that goes there twice a day. So we spent the mornings at Lake Annecy and the afternoons skiing! The accommodation is lovely, well decorated, warm and cosy and with lots to keep the kids amused. Thank you to Natalie for meeting us the next morning after we arrived late the previous night due to the drive from Calais, to help settle us in and orientate us to the area. You have a gorgeous house and just let us know if it comes up for sale!

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.

It felt very quiet and peaceful inspite of the church clock bells ringing. Fortunately they did not ring at night. The only downside is that the cooker hood sticks out too far and we were constantly bumping our heads on it when cooking but other than that everything was fine. It was very clean and tidy the description and photos were accurate.
