Annecy is well-known for the snow and its winter sports but the summer is, of course, THE best period to enjoy the lake. Surrounded by the mountains, the nights are cooler but the temperatures during the day are really pleasant: between 25 and 35°. During this period, the lake water is very pleasant and your toddlers will have a blast! A two-week stay is “IDEAL” to have time to settle down, discover and rest.
