We thought we have arrived at a toy land like place when we stepped out of our car upon arrival. The houses are variously painted in pastel colors on both sides of a waterway running through the medieval town.
Annecy is not only a particularly lovely town in the south of France. In the centre of the town on a the narrow streets are filled with markets and stalls selling antiques and other fripperies. The scent of freshly baked pizza and pastries wafts through the air as you wind your way through the labyrinthian shopping I particularly like this stall selling cheese, wine and ham.
There is so much street live in Annecy – this is one of the elements which keeps Annecy alive!
