Looking for property for sale around Lake Annecy? Steve Elsdon operates the local agency for Alpine Property. He works exclusively as an estate agent selling apartments and villas in the lakeside villages of Veyrier, Menthon St Bernard and Talloires. These villages are renowned internationally for an idyllic way of life amongst breathtaking scenery.
The lake flows into the canals of Annecy old town adding to the picturesque appeal of the medieval streets and floral quaysides. Sporting activities around the lake are numerous and varied: the cycle route along the edge of the lake is not to be missed. There are water-based activities (swimming, sailing, water skiing or diving) at Menthon and Talloires and an 18 hole golf course at Talloires with incredible views.
You can discover the lake from the air by tandem parapente or hang-glider flights. Walking trails, mountain bike routes, climbing sites, via ferrata and canyoning also offer great view points. In winter the ski stations of the Grand Bornand and La Clusaz offer plenty of skiing at just 40 minutes from the town centre. Closer still is the station of Semnoz, favoured by the people of Annecy for its family appeal and snowshoe and Nordic skiing trails.
Basically, there is something for everyone whatever their age or tastes. Cultural activities are also a big plus point for the Lake Annecy region; the town is rich in museums and chateaux offering guided visits and numerous exhibitions. Gastronomy also marks the lake region as a great place to live with 5 Michelin starred restaurants in and around Annecy.
