The French Alps are renowned for their stunning scenery,

complete with beautiful mountains, rolling foothills and

pristine lakes and rivers. Tucked away at the edge of the

lake with a mountain backdrop, Annecy, the capital  of

Haute-Savoie, is renowned for its high quality of life.

In an outstanding position downstream from the lake,

it has retained its architectural and historic heritage,

restored its old quarter, and developed its canals to which

it owes its name of the “Venice of the Alps”.
