Annecy and Lake Annecy weather forecast

Annecy, known as the Venice of the Alps, is a sunny and picturesque city at the foot of the French Alps. Sitting by the north end of Lake Annecy, the weather is warm in summer and cool in winter, providing scenic views in every direction thanks to snow-capped mountains in winter and plenty of lakeside activities to enjoy during summer.

Lake Annecy holiday weather and activities

Annecy is a popular summer destination for family holidays near the French Alps. 

Touted to be the cleanest lake in Europe, Lake Annecy often reaches temperatures of 25-27°C, making it perfect in so many ways for water sports such as waterskiing, wakeboarding, diving, swimming, sailing, SUP paddle boarding, kayaking and so much more. 

On the hottest days, escape the heat with a dip at one of the beaches, or stay cool in the shade of the old town cobbled streets and enjoy an ice cream from one of the many artisan shops.

Paragliding and summer sports in Annecy

The south end of Lake Annecy has a number of paragliding schools as it's one of the few places in the world where new and experienced paragliders can learn new skills over water and make an emergency landing if needed (the schools have boats to collect their students!). From the first day of spring through to autumn, the paragliders take the skies during perfect weather conditions.

Mountain biking and hiking are also popular around Annecy, with regular buses to the Semnoz mountain — right next door to the city — throughout summer to cater for downhill mountain bikers and plenty of hiking trials in every direction around the Lake Annecy.
