You would have probably noticed it on our Facebook or Instagram accounts, we went out of the Paris region to stay in the French Alps. A week spent in Annecy was some kind of a treat for our little family, especially in the Spring when fruit trees are in flowers. Here are a few photos taken in the Annecy region with strong rains storms one day, followed by brilliant sunshine the next.
A week spent in Annecy in the French Alps
This week spent in Annecy was planned early this year. We had not been visiting the charming touristic town since April 2014 and it was such a beautiful treat to be back again. For those of you who do not know about the place, Annecy is located between Geneva and Chambéry in the French Alps and is famous for its pristine lake.
We’ve been taking hundreds – if not thousands! – of photos and it will take us weeks to sort them out. Fortunately I managed to pull out a few interesting shots taken during our outings. The sun did not always shine and the rain was falling heavily on some days, thus giving to the photos a certain mystical look.
