If you have chosen to spend a weekend or your holidays in Haute-Savoie, book a holiday rental in Annecy. This town has many monuments worth visiting such the Palais de l'Ile, Annecy castle and the Basilica of the Visitation. The Pont des Amours crosses the Canal du Vassé close to the lake that gives its name to the town.
Find an accommodation
Annecy is also known as the Venice of the Alps; the Thiou and the Vassé meander through the old town and it is the ideal place where to relax. You could rent a chambre d'hôtes at Novel. If you wish to do aquatic sports on the blue lake or mountain sports in Semnoz on the foothills of the Bauges, you can rent a furnished apartment at Saint-Jorioz.
Take a morning stroll along the lake to enjoy the wildlife, particularly birds such as cormorants, warblers and wild swans. The angling federation of Haute Savoie will issue you with a tourist angling permit so you can enjoy trout, perch, or pike fishing. Otherwise, you might just want to take an easy walk in the Jardins de l'Europe or rent a house with garden by the lake, from which you can take a boat to get into town.
Various towns border the lake and you could rent a house in Veyrier-du-Lacou, or a villa in Lathuile close to the nature reserve. Should you wish to be close to the Annecy golf course you might want to rent a house in Talloires-Montmin or a gîte in Menthon Saint Bernard.
