Wanderlust Wednesday: Vieille Ville Annecy

Wanderlust Wednesday: Vieille Ville Annecy

Annecy is a city in south east France, 22 miles south of Geneva. It is nicknamed ‘Pearl of French Alps’. I only spent a day in Annecy but it is one of my favourite places I have been to. Out of all the places in France my friend and I visited/drove by, this is the place we loved the most and agreed on re-visiting in the future. Everything about it is so lovely; the old stone buildings, the pretty flowers draped over walls, the big blue lake and the mountains which sit by it. It is just so stunning and picturesque.

The stone building which sits on the canal is the Palais de I’lle, a Medieval castle prison which is now an art and history museum. Before I visited Annecy I researched the place and couldn’t wait to capture this beautiful building with it’s lovely scenery. Of course, when I visited it was covered in scaffolding. Nonetheless it still looked pretty!

We spent the day by the refreshing Lake Annecy, which I will write about in a separate post because I have so many gorgeous photos of it! We made our way to the old town for dinner and saw the sunset over the mountains before heading off to our next destination.

If you ever do a road trip through France I couldn’t recommend this place enough. It’s a five and a half hour drive from Paris (with tolls) and is pretty much on the route to popular locations in south of France, such as Nice and St Tropez. I’d especially recommend it for a romantic getaway!

I absolutely love France and would very much like to explore more of the country!
