Staying at the apartment we were close to the Lake, Old Town, Private and Public beaches with so many good facilities all around. We parked our car for most the week and cycled for the rest of the week. Francisca was very warm friendly woman with plenty of info and guidance regarding Annecy. The apartment was well laid out for a family of four, very clean with lots of storage space. It was perfect fro all our needs. Will definitely return!! Annecy is a great holiday for a family, especially for active teenagers!!
