The Annecy apartment was stunning, set as it is above the river with views over the old gaol and up towards the lake. We could not have asked for a more relaxing week, blessed as we were with beautiful weather. The twice weekly markets, with beautiful fresh food to choose from, became three when we were lucky enough to be there on the day that the alpine community celebrated Le Retour des Alpages, which I believe marks the return of the animals from the high summer pastures to their winter quarters. What an experience that was; music, dance, markets, crafts, animals, costumes, parades, it was just so special. Some of the highlights for us were the cruise on the lake, the drive around the lake, Chamonix Mont Blanc (stunning), the Col de la Forclaz (beautiful), the autumn colours in the mountains, walking the streets of the old city, the beautiful tastes from the Traiteur next door.
The apartment itself is so well set out. The washing machine and dryer so handy, the kitchen well appointed, bed very comfortable. We had a ball, and would love to return!
