Natural Feature
“As you step away from the Annecy Old Town and you stroll along the main canal, the pathway will take you towards the Lac d Annecy (Lake Annecy). This is the third largest lake in France, so bring your camera, because the view is quite impressive! There are plenty of activities to choose from. You can hire a motor boat, or you can choose to get on a pedal boat and take your time relaxing whilst sunbathing in the French sunshine. Alternatively, you can choose to spend some time in the beautiful Jardins de l’Europe (Gardens of Europe). Where else you can relax at the 18th century gardens with a view over a beautiful lake and the spectacular backdrop of the mountain range. It is stunning! These days, the gardens feature a much smaller number of original plants; thus allowing for a clearer view of the lake. Win-win situation here. If you are travelling to Annecy with kids, then this will be a great place for you to stretch your legs too. The park has an extensive grassy area for kids to loose some energy and there is also a kids play park with a bunch of slides, swings and other funky toys to play with.”
