AnnecyThe town of Annecy, just minutes away from Talloires, and a mere 40 minute ride from Geneva, is on the northern side of the lake. Winding canals, bridges and flower-lined cobblestone streets give this quaint town its nickname "Venice of France". Charming café's, boutiques, old stone buildings and castles, contribute to a romantic and almost medieval atmosphere that brings you back to the days of old France.
