    • Summer weather: end July/beg August

      by weehb Online Now Sep 25, 2014 at 10:44 AM

      I was looking into staying in Avignon and Provence for 2 weeks next summer, but a few folks have said it would be way too hot and hectic in Avignon to enjoy it with young children (age 5 and 7). So, another friend has suggested Annecy. I know little about it, but thought I might as well start with the weather, with that being the nail in the Avignon coffin. From what I've scanned on wunderground, Annecy looks incredibly mixed: rain, sun, 30C, 19C all in one week. Is it really very changeable (with the mountains and all)? Is there much to do with kids if the weather turns cold and wet? I'm interested in wandering the old town/eating outside at night so kids can have some freedom, and swimming in the lake/cycling/walking a bit .... thanks for any advice. I'd just like to see if it is go-er b4 I plough as much research into it as I did Provence.

      Geneva-- Annecy

      by sandeepgarg Online Now May 5, 2014 at 5:30 PM

      We are a group of 9, land at Geneva on 14th May morning at 8.20 am.

      We would 1st like to go to ANNECY (preferably by road -- old??), and return by late afternoon to see some of Geneva.

      Can we get a minibus for this portion, about 6-7 hours I think? Is this viable?

      We are a group of 9. We land at Geneva airport on 14th May at 8.20 AM.

      We would 1st like to wander around Geneva for a few hours

      Then go to ANNECY in late afternoon (preferably by road -- old??), and stay the night there.

      Reach Lausanne by the 15th May afternoon. (Next day -- 16th-- want to visit Gruyere and Broc and then onto Interlaken)

      We will have the Swiss train Railpass.

      How do we work this out, if it is feasible?? Especially the Geneva- Annecy -Lausanne portion. The costing should not be too high.

      Thanks

    • Annecy by rental car from Nice - is it worth visiting / driving (travelling end Jan 2014)?

      by pratulc Online Now Dec 14, 2013 at 10:22 PM

      Hello, my wife and I intend driving from Nice at the end of January for 3 days and then on to Paris. Could I get some help in making my decisions: (apologies for the copious questions)
      Is winter the fine to visit Annecy?
      Are the roads safe - will soft tyres do on the rental car or do I need chains?
      Do I understand correctly that the best route from Nice would be by via Geneva?
      Do I need to book accommodation in advance my stay to get a 'reasonable' price?
      To travel to Paris from Annecy do I need to head towards Lyon?
      If the questions are too many, I am happy to do the research if I am pointed in the right direction.
      Thanks in advance - Pratul

      Best Way to Travel from Lyon to Annecy

      by elisabethsb Online Now Oct 10, 2013 at 2:02 PM

      I'm planning a trip from Montpellier up through the Rhone-Alpes region in November with my mom. Although we're hoping to visit Lyon, we would absolutely LOVE to spend a day in Annecy. I've been comparing shuttles and trains, but would really appreciate some advice -- so, in your opinion, what is the best way to get from Lyon to Annecy?

      (PS. Bonus question: what is the city like in November? Is it a good time to visit or would we be better off elsewhere?)
