Annecy is a beautiful town in the Haute-Savoie region of France. It has a quaint downtown, beautiful parks and a cool film festival. But if you grab a bike and head 5 minutes out of town you will a huge park with bike-only trails the go for miles (or in this case 36-kilometers hugging the entire left-side of the lake).
There are spots to enjoy a picnic or views of the lake, as well as a few little restaurants and swimming holes. And if you get to the end of the trail you can stop and watch the paragliders land!
Without the cars this is a stress-free route and great for the whole family!
