There is more to France than just Paris. Forget about Paris for now and put Annecy in your mind. There is not a single reason not to visit Annecy, a town nestled in the southeastern part of France. From unrivalled natural beauty to impressive architecture, you can find it all in Annecy. Soak in Lake Annecy - the water of the lake is crystal clear and will make you feel refreshed. Or, rent a bike and spend a few hours riding around the area. Then, have a pleasant stroll along the canals - Annecy’s canals will remind you of Venice and, as you stroll, you will soon fall in love with the cobblestone streets and pastel houses.
Make sure to visit the Palais de I’Isle, one of the most picturesque spots in France. It used to be a courthouse, a prison and a Lord’s residence before it became a local history museum. Scroll down to find the best places to stay in Annecy’s centre, France, with our list of top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals.
