Set at the foot of the French Alps, Lake Annecy is a local mecca for water sports including fishing, swimming, scuba diving, sailing and water skiing. With pretty villages dotted around the lake, you can take your pick of land activities too, such as golfing, horse riding, mountain biking, hiking, paragliding and sight-seeing.
Renting a Lake Annecy villa with a swimming pool or lakeside location is utter luxury. Sunbathe on your private terrace, cool down in the pool or lake, read a book in the shade, or watch the paragliders flying high above you. Villas with pools near Lake Annecy also make the perfect base for exploring. From a holiday home in Talloires, for example, you can jump on the cycle path around the lake to visit places like Menthon Saint Bernard and its 12th century medieval castle, then stop in Veyrier du Lac for lunch at a lakeside restaurant or a picnic on the beach. If you prefer to spend time on a golf course, there's one in Talloires, on the road to Menthon St Bernard.
On the other side of the lake, places like Sevrier provide easy access to the local free beach, tennis courts and shops, as well as being close to Saint Jorioz which has a port and facilities for those with reduced mobility. Holiday rentals around the lake are almost guaranteed to include views of the mountains as well as either being situated lakeside or having a lovely view of the lake. Imagine being just a minute's walk from splashing in the crystal-clear water on a warm summer's day.
