Annecy In The Snow

In Destinations, Europe, France by Nick NomiLeave a Comment

It seems the sun is returning to Annecy, and soon winter will give over to spring. However – just a week ago the little town of Annecy was covered in several feet of snow and it was beautiful. I wondered around and took a few photos and marvelled at how, unlike cities such as London, Annecy just keeps going. The busses and trains still run and people still drive – but best of all – people get creative – creating all kinds of snowmen – from the usual carrot nosed efforts through to igloos and small snow zoos filled with ducks and turtles (snowy ones) and the city and its monuments are simply stunning when blanketed in snow.

Take a look through our photo’s of Annecy in the snow, below.
