Subject: re: Annecy France
Hi Mike and Fran,

Regrettably, I can't help with info about the castle, but I loved Annecy and can't imagine anyone not thoroughly enjoying it. We especially enjoyed the market in the streets and on the bridges -- sampled all the cheeses and bought Ranier cherries and a baguette and had the best picnic of the trip (wine included, of course)as we enjoyed the boat ride on the lake. I believe Wednesday is the market day, but any local will be glad to tell you. I was with a tour group and had no choice of hotels, so Linda is your best bet there. We stayed in one of the chains, and it was quite all right but not memorable. Just have a wonderful trip. I'd love to be going again. It's never too soon to go back to France.

Bon voyage,
