The French Alps and Annecy

It’s hard to imagine a more dramatic backdrop for a holiday

When the snow has melted and the ski slopes have given way to flower-filled meadows, Camping in the French Alps and Annecy becomes the ideal place for a relaxing holiday, with plenty to see and do.

With towering mountain peaks, plunging pine tree covered valleys, crystal clear waters and cascading waterfalls, it’s hard to imagine a more dramatic backdrop for a holiday.

Walk or cycle around the area, picnic in summer meadows and discover caves and grottos cut into the limestone hills.

You’ll also be close enough to the Swiss, German and Italian borders to pop over to enjoy a truly international break.

Annecy is said to be the prettiest town in France with canals, flowers and a beautiful lakeside setting. Don’t miss the lakefront and old quarter when you visit and it’s also a good base from which to visit Mont Blanc – France’s highest mountain.

Chamonix: Catch a cable car or train to explore the slopes of Mont Blanc from Chamonix and enjoy some of the most stunning scenery in the entire Alps.
