Subject: Annecy and Talloires
Hello: A few years ago we spent a week in an apartment immediately across the lake from Talloires. It was just gorgeous, I would go back in a heart beat. Sitting in the living room watching the small boats, fishermen, swans on the lake, the the hang gliders launching off the mountains into the lake was just wonderful. Annecy is charming but busy as one person said. We drove all round the district including around to Talloires for lunch one day. We eschewed Pere Bise on the grounds of 1) cost and 2) the only lunchers were a Japanese couple who had arrived in a stretch Mercedes complete with driver and three(!) doors on each side - we thought we were outclassed there. We went instead to Les Pres du Lac, a charming building where I had about the third worst meal I have ever paid for - there is competition for second place and first place for this honour is so far out in front it will never be caught. Nonetheless I would go back to this region but probably not to LPduL. regards from Margaret still in Melbourne.
