Summer Holidays in Annecy
Annecy is the capital of the Haute Savoie and is effectively located at the crossroads with routes into Switzerland and Italy.
Annecy lies at the heart of a beautiful region crowned by mountain peaks and sitting at the head of a lovely lake.
There is a wealth of activity options in the area and, when you are feeling more sedate, head for the cobbled streets of old Annecy or the St-Pierre Cathedral.
There are a range of delightful villages along the shores of the Lake - do visit Talloires with its priory and abbey.
The mountain setting of the lakes makes it a great place for rambling, mountain biking, via ferrata and canyonning. Whether you are a beginner or have experience, we can assist - just enquire.

Doing More … Design your holiday to suit you.
When you book your holiday with Zenith Holidays, you can be confident that we will be there to help make the whole experience as smooth as easy as possible.
During the week before you leave, we will call you to make sure you have all you need or to provide any help or assistance in some last minute touches - but, before then, do make sure your passport is valid (not required for Jersey) and peruse our upgrade possibilities - you can book up to 2 weeks before you travel but do be aware that some things will sell out - airport parking and the Meet & Greet service often do on peak holiday dates and the "Fetch-my-luggage" service is bound to be popular on busy weeks so do book that early.
If you need an airport hotel or even some "tried & tested" car games for the kids for the drive down, let us know or book them online - once you have booked your holiday, all these extras can be added in your own secure booking area.
Have a great holiday!
