A Magical Medieval Town Located on Lake Annecy
Annecy is a magical medieval town located on Lake Annecy in the Valley of Thones, at the foot of the French Alps. We will be staying at the Splendid Hotel in Annecy for nine nights. The Splendid Hotel is perfectly located in the center of the medieval town, directly across from the lake. The breakfast buffet each morning is served in a dining room with views of the lake. There is also an outside terrace where you can enjoy your breakfast if you prefer. Each morning there are choices of regional cheeses and meats, along with eggs, fresh breads, pastries, fruits, juices, and croissants. A copious buffet of delights! The food, the scenery, the town of Annecy itself, the mountains, the cheese (best in the country, maybe the world), the markets, the history…it is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world. We will explore the villages, visit castles, taste the regional specialties, and be amazed by the natural wonders in this region of Haute Savoie.
