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.

                                                              We had an amazing stay at this magnificent lake front property with my family and parents who were visiting from overseas. There was 7 of us in total and the property was very comfortable and luxurious. All rooms, bathrooms, and fittings were of a high standard and it was a pleasure to stay at the house. The house was very secure, private and in fantastic condition right on the water. You felt like it was a little bit of paradise in Annecy. There are restaurants close by and shops are a 5-minute drive from the house. If you are looking for a fantastic getaway in an amazing property this is the place to go. We look forward to going back there one day soon.

                                                              Wonderful house!

                                                              What a wonderful stay! The house has lovely views from all 3 floors of Lake Annecy, and is in a nice quiet location but still an easy walk to the small, quaint village of Talloires. The main level with kitchen/dining/living space is nicely appointed and was perfect for our 2 families, 8 people total. Everyone had a pleasant and comfortable place to sleep and plenty of bathrooms. The house was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed, plus a terrific gas stove. And this house may have my all time favorite fire place - easy to use, warmed up the living space nicely, and perfectly positioned couches to enjoy it. Michelle and Claude were lovely and made our stay pleasant and easy, in addition to providing some nice tips for the area. Definitely would recommend, and hope to return some day!

                                                              Lovely house in quiet location.

                                                              A comfortable well equipped house in lovely scenery looking at the Mountains. Lovely welcome from John and Marianne. If you are keen cyclists this is the perfect place - great cycle tracks or cycling around Lake Annecy . For those who like a challenge the Alps are there on the doorstep with numerous Cols to cycle up - the views at the top are breathtaking. As a couple in our 60's we enjoyed cycling the tracks, around the lake and the challenge of the Cols. Would recommend the lovely house, area and the cycling and of course the hosts were very friendly and helpful. Maurice & Trish
