Group accommodation in Annecy

9 Entries

To the north of the French Alps lies a jewel of a town filled with quaint timber houses, cobblestoned streets, geranium-lined canals and a fairytale castle - this is Annecy, France. A sports lover's dream Annecy is a year round destination for groups looking to make the most of the outdoors. Whether it is water sports on the lake, snow sports on the mountains in the winter or hiking in the summer, Annecy has it all. It is also a candidate for hosting the Inter Olympic and Paralympic Games 2018. On the tip of the immaculately pristine and strikingly turquoise Lake Annecy, this charming town takes you back in time with landmarks such as the Palais d'Isle, the town's most striking feature - resting on an island in the centre of the Thiou canal, it has been a palace and a prison and is now home to historical exhibits - great for a schools group visit. And don't miss Annecy Castle which offers panoramic views over the quaint houses, tranquil lake and vast mountainous landscape.
