Explore Annecy with the family, or head to the French Alps from your city apartment
Take a look at our range of apartments in Annecy at half-term, below.
Annecy, based at the foot of the French Alps, provides easy access to many ski resorts. But there's plenty more on offer in Annecy and around the lake!
The medieval town of Annecy is a bustling and vibrant place during the busy summer months, when tourists come to swim in Lake Annecy — said to be the cleanest lake in Europe — and enjoy the delights of Annecy old town (la vieille ville). In winter and even during half-term, the streets are calmer, but the mountain views are even more spectacular, with snow-capped peaks in every direction. With traditional Savoyard shops, restaurants and markets open throughout the year, you'll be wishing you'd brought an extra suitcase!
Make your stay in Annecy even more luxurious by renting an OVO Network apartment. If you'd like a central location, we have apartments in the heart of the old town, less than a minutes walk to the famous Palais de l'Isle and the canals, as well as lakeside options on the shores of Lake Annecy close to the city centre. All our Annecy apartments include free private parking.
Our holiday rentals, which are self-catered, offer all the mod cons you'll need, such as free WiFi, flat-screen TVs, a well-equipped kitchen and a washing machine. You'll also find a spacious living room, and a comfortable bed to sleep in after your day exploring the city, with beds already made up for you and towels supplied.
Being located in Annecy during winter gives skiers the perfect base to explore, with nearby resorts such as Le Semnoz just a short drive away, and lesser-known resorts around the lake such as La Sambuy-Seythenex and Montmin, which is a great option for kids. There's also La Clusaz, Manigod and Le Grand Bornand just half an hour away, as well as Morzine and the Portes du Soleil and the entire Chamonix valley both around an hour's drive away. But you'll need to tear the family away from the fresh produce market in Annecy first!
Our Annecy apartments are very popular with our guests, especially during February half-term and other school holidays, so make sure you book in advance for the widest choice. Or take a look at our villas around Lake Annecy if you're looking for more peace and quiet.
