Many people have at some point spent some time camping around Lake Annecy (or Lac d'Annecy, as it's called in French). Little wonder, because it is an excellent camping area next to a beautiful lake, surrounded by charming hills and mountains, offering some excellent camping spots.

And there is of course the old, elegant town of Annecy itself. Situated perfectly by the lake, it offers a beautiful old towncenter with narrow winding alleys, lots of terraces, a welcoming weekly market and a magnificant, well maintained park. It's also a good starting point for of the popular boat tours around the lake.

If you don't mind an hour's drive or so, then Chamonix is within reach as well, where you can have a view of the white peaks in the stunning Mont Blanc mountain range. From Chamonix, you can do some splendid hiking, simply enjoy a sunny terrace in the welcoming city center or, if you're looking for some adventure, go paragliding in the surrounding mountains.

One more tip: if you're willing to look a bit further than the direct vicinity of Lake Annecy, then maybe you should have a look at the Lac du Bourget, situated about thirty kilometers to the west. It is not as well know as Lake Annecy, but it has beautiful surroundings as well, and you will find some nice campsites there.
