TravelPod Member ReviewsSplendid Hôtel Annecy
This is a great hotel less then a 5 minute walk from the old town. Our room was clean and well appointed. On the 2nd floor is the breakfast room with an outdoor terrace overlooking the street and the park. There is an all-purpose store just a block away called Monoprix (food, clothing, sundry items etc.).

Sunday 9/14 - After flying all night from the US, followed by a 4 hour high speed TGV from Paris, we arrived in Annecy around 2:30 pm on Sunday for a 3 night stay.
It was a short walk from the train station to our hotel. We settled into our room, unpacked and decided since it was such a beautiful afternoon to take a walk around town.

I delivered them to the bus stop and went back to see if there was any other signs of life at base camp.

I was panicking because I paid for the car park which was mega bucks and If you don't go out within a certain time it might not accept ...
... crystal clear with a backdrop of snow capped mountains (just to make us feel at home), and the best bit was that our campsite was about 100m from the edge…..perfect!
The next day we packed a picnic and walked along the ‘voie verte’, the traffic free cycle path which leads you into Annecy and follows the lake. It was a beautiful walk and we couldn’t believe the hive of activity on the path. There is a continuous flow ...
... are these not as prolific in the world as chocolate chip cookies!? Matthew didn't object when I suggested that we stockpile enough macaroons to carry us through the rest of our holiday.
Before departing for the rest of our itinerary, we walked along the lake and stopped over the Pont des Amours (Lover's Bridge) to take in the crisp beauty of the sheltered scenery. If this place was any indication, I could already tell that I was going to love the Alps!
