Open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm
This 9 day tour combines the turquoise Lake Annecy, overlooked by wooded and often-snow-capped mountain, the charming Old Town with its ensemble of pastel-painted, geranium-bedecked houses and the turreted château which looks like a castle straight out of the Middle Ages together with the stunning passes, peaks, valleys and villages of the Maurienne Valley.

"I've Just returned from the Black forest, I didn't fill in your questionnaire but can tell you we had a great time, everything went very smoothly, hotels were good and the hotel in Hornberg was wonderful apart from being in the 3rd.floor with no lift, next time will pay the extra for a lower floor which I didn't know was possible. However on a lighter note please send me hard copy of all the particulars on the Italian lakes need to drive that pass and something I have always wanted to do. Next year a must. Also nice group of people on the trip different cars, so not just boring Mercedes talk." Regards, Bill Bryce.
Lake Annecy - Not only is it one of the prettiest lakes around, but Lake Annecy is also “Europe’s cleanest lake” due to the very early introduction of environmental regulations in the 1960s. Famously painted in oil on canvas by Cézanne in 1896, the lake lies at the foothills of the French Alps and has a rich local history from both before and after the unification of the local region of Savoy with France just 150 years ago.
As well as the super lakes and mountains scenery, the area is well known for its local cuisine including its cheeses, its fish such as Omble Chevalier and Féra, and its chocolate, especially the mountain liqueur-based Roseau.
