Very beautiful scenery - a million (at least) times better that the view from our balcony!!! 😂 😂 😂

That’s interesting Julia … what channel was the programme on? It’s certainly a special place, with the mountains so close … easy to drive up to the wild flower meadows, and also to watch the paragliders launching.

Thanks very much Ange, Klahanie, Cal and David for your comments 🙂.

Amy, so glad you know it too. Yes, it’s brilliant that there are cycle lanes everywhere for all those mad keen French cyclists. Where did you stay? I wanted to find a market but couldn’t 🙁 … we were in Talloires on the east bank, and one day drove up the mountain to see the paragliders launching … more mad Frenchmen!

Josee, thank you.

Sheila, I was stationed in Geneva in 90's and when you posted I did not know where the Annecy Lake is. The next door!!!! and I've never heard of it until now. Sounds like a nice place for a little holiday.(Missed opportunity)

Oh wow Klahanie - I never knew that before! I lived in Geneva with 2 flat-mates 1965 - 67, met Keith there, then 1968 - 70 our first house was a chalet in the Jura (half an hour from Geneva). While there we only visited Annecy once ... an hour's drive, I'm sure you would love it; mostly our weekends were spent skiing! x

Sheila we were at Bradannaz on the west bank opposite side to you , I have photos of the market also the beautiful Annecy streets , how did you travel Plane ,car ? we have a very nice caravan and have spent a lot of time touring Europe but since all this trouble plus the pandemic we haven't been able to go and have missed our adventures , hopefully we will again one day..

Amy, I hope you get to use your caravan again before too long. I couldn’t persuade OH to go by train 🙁, so we flew to Geneva then hired a car for the week. All fine except for those ghastly airport queues!

It has a magical feel and is stunningly beautiful.

Thank you Linda and Chris … we were very lucky to find such a beautiful place to relax.

I hope so to Sheila but have to admit it's getting quite scary travelling, last time we weren't allowed to stop within 200 miles of the Ferry the lay-bys were all blocked off to stop illegal immigrants from boarding any transport , they were running alongside the roads .. I don't think I'd feel safe these days , our van was searched from top to bottom also my was husband patted down ( I think he enjoyed that Haha ) Funny thing is they didn't bother about me :o(
