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.

It was well equipped and the large attached garden with sun loungers allowed us to take advantage of the glorious weather. The owner's were very courteous and extremely helpful. We highly recommend 'Coté montagnes' as an exceedingly comfortable and pleasant place to stay to travellers wishing to visit the Annecy valley. We would happily return there again.

Michelle and Claude were easy to contact and gave us all the information that we needed for an amazing holiday. We would highly recommend visiting La Clusaz and taking the scenic route on the boat to Annecy. We are only sorry that we had one week instead of two.
