Lake Annecy

Thibaut's pick

I first came to Annecy this year as a student. And for someone like me who likes sport in impressive surroundings it's fantastic. With a number of ski resorts within half an hour in winter and with Mont Veyrier and the Semnoz for biking, I'm really spoilt. The surroundings are just magical; it feels like you're kind of disconnected from everything else. The town's pretty quiet in winter, but as soon as the spring festivals start it changes completely.
