In May let’s decide to treat ourselves! Here are some addresses in Annecy that are essential to simply enjoy.
Do as you wish... by visiting
In a great mood? Come and visit the castle of Menthon-Saint-Bernard
! Overlooking Lake Annecy, this Savoyard architectural jewel would have inspired a so-named Walt Disney to imagine his Sleeping Beauty.
In the heart of the city center, the Musée-Chateau of Annecy
will also take you back in time. This old castle where the Counts of Geneva and the House of Savoy used to stay now houses a museum enriched with the city's collections.
Another museum classified as a historical monument, the Palais de l'Île
. The former jail, courthouse and administrative center has become an exhibition space on the architecture and heritage of the Annecy area. Enough to make more than one dream!
Surprising this time, the PACCARD Museum
! Also known as the Bell Museum, you will trace the history of the bell and the PACCARD foundry during an unforgettable visit!
Finally, for animation film fanatics, discover the beginnings and development of this art through the Museum of Animated Film
. Original creations and authors' worlds will welcome you in the heart of downtown!
So many visits to plan, you'll have to get organized!
Do as you wish ... at the restaurant
The place to taste and to be is without a doubt Ô Bon Bec

And in the plate? Oysters, tapas, sushis, matured meat (it is said to be the place to eat the best prime rib in Annecy...), cheese (from Duboulloz please!).
Chic Bistro, Bistronomic or Gastronomic, head to the Impérial Palace.
to savor a traditional, family and generous cuisine. For even more pleasure, enjoy your meal on the sunny terrace bordered by flowery gardens with a view of Lake Annecy.
For a more sophisticated atmosphere, go to the restaurant La Voile
! This gastronomic place has become a must in Annecy with its refined and creative dishes. A chic and elegant setting with a breathtaking view of the lake
Now the hardest part is to make your choice!
Do as you wish ... at the spa
In need to relax? To take some time for yourself? An appointment at the Cristal Spa
is a must.

For the more motivated, there is also a gym.
News alert, we are told that alongside Cinq Mondes, the spa now offers, exclusively in France, the products and treatments of the Swiss brand Alpeor...
Do as you wish... in activities
It's the opportunity to do, do again or even test!
To admire the landscapes, there is nothing better than a cruise on Lake Annecy.
They are organized at regular time by La Compagnie des bateaux or by Water Taxi if you are looking for something more intimate and tailor-made.
If you are a thrill seeker, don't miss a paragliding or hot air balloon flight. The site is very famous and the view is breathtaking.
For those more down to earth, head for Le Semnoz or Les Aravis for beautiful hikes, unless you are tempted by a bike ride around the lake or a golf session.
The hardest thing will be to choose!
Do as you wish... on weekends
In May, we have decided to threat ourselves so why not spend a weekend in Annecy!
First of all, choose the hotel that suits you best and we have two suggestions for you:
If you are looking for a contemporary place and a little off the tracks, we recommend you the hotel Le Pélican. A few steps from the old town of Annecy and with a direct view on the purest lake in Europe, this hotel will have everything to charm you. You can even relax by the swimming pool or during a game of petanque facing the lake.
If your happiness lies in a more luxurious and elegant place, head for the Impérial Palace. A true haven of peace offering a breathtaking view of the gardens and Lake Annecy. In addition to the spa and the choice of restaurants you will also find a casino with slot machines and traditional gaming tables.
See you soon in Annecy ;)
