Near our accommodation by Lake Annecy, you'll also find numerous well-signposted hiking routes (don't forget the picnic). Feel like walking around the lake?  Well, you can! There are footpaths that allow you to do the full 43 km. You can also rent bicycles and go through all the villages around the lake on the bike paths.
