Annecy is a commune in the Haute-Savoie department in the Rhône-Alpes region in south-eastern France. It is very pretty and sits on a large peaceful lake (considered to be the purest lake in Europe), with a backdrop of snow topped mountains.

The town itself has several little canals which give it a Venetian air, encompassing several ancient villages dating from Neolithic times.

These little canals and the river Thiou wind through the old town, encircling the medieval palace perched mid-river, the Palais de l’Ile, also used as a prison until 1865.
