About

Annecy, a sublime scenery between lake and mountains. 

Annecy is situated in the North of the French Alps, 5O km away from Chambéry and 40km from Genève. From turquoise water of the Lac d'Annecy to often-snow-capped mountains, the city of Annecy is certainly one of the most beautiful French cities, combining a real city life with the outdoors. 

Around Annecy, you will find a plethora of extreme and outdoor sports to do. Lake activities include wakeboarding, swimming, kitesurfing, windsurfing and kayaking. The lake's water is crystal clear and not too cold during spring and summer time. The lake shore and surrounding countryside is great for roller-blading, mountain biking and trekking. There are also great rock climbing spots around, on the nearby cliffs, and an active local paragliding scene.

Go mountain biking in Le Semnoz, famous for its nature trails. Go rock climbing, trekking or paragliding in Le massif des Aravis et le massif des Bornes (Mont Veyrier, Parmelan, Tournette, Dents de Lanfon) at the East of Annecy or in the Genevois, in the North.
