French Alps, France

Luxury Properties For Sale In Annecy

Located in the heart of the Haute Savoie, Lake Annecy is the third largest lake in France and arguably the most prestige.

Just 40 minutes from Geneva and an hour from Grenoble, Lake Annecy is popular with holidaymakers, those with second reseidences or holiday homes and permanent residents. There are a number of towns and villages scattered around the lakes with prestige lakefront villas including Talloires, Annecy-le-Vieux, Menthon-Saint-Bernard, Veyrier-du-Lac and Saint-Jorioz.

The lake acts as a central focal point for a range of summer activities from water based sports to paragliding and the area also boasts some of the best camp sites in France. Residents are also very close to some of the finest ski resorts in the Alps including Chamonix, Morzine, Les Gets and Chatel, making this a truly all year round destination.

The old town to the north of the lake is comparable to Venice with a picturesque canal that runs through the heart of the area with wonderful eateries, including Michelin star quality restaurants, however, some of the finest food can be found off the beaten track in the mountains that surround this stunning lake destination.
