Lake Annecy is stunningly beautiful, with its bright blue waters surrounded by mountains, forests, and picturesque Alpine towns and villages.
There are also many things for the active family to do in this region, from hikes and cycle rides to whitewater rafting and paragliding for the more adventurous.
Don’t forget that there are many holiday parks here too, with swimming pools and sun loungers, and beaches on the shores of Lake Annecy. Who needs the Med?
We explored this region while staying at Camping La Ravoire, which gets the thumbs-up from us.
