So when are you leaving? Have you seen Annecy? It’s only an hour or so drive from Grenoble. It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. The lake is crystal clear and used for drinking water, and it has the Alps as a backdrop. It also has an old, historic part of town that is so charming it doesn’t seem real. It’s like Disney built it.
On one side of the lake it’s one of the priciest real estate areas in France, we were told. Think summer vacation homes for the wealthy. There’s a 3-star Michelin restaurant there we didn’t try because money!
