summer getaway in the french alps: where to stay

summer getaway in the french alps: where to stay

After 2 months of anticipating our move to Berlin (and all of the logistical planning/packing/anxiety that went along with that) we made it to Annecy! Located in the lakes region of France, it's an enjoyable 3 hour train ride from Paris. It was the perfect French summer getaway without having to face the crowds of the south.

We stayed at the Impérial Palace. It's right on the lake, and the grounds are so beautiful!

The stay at the Impérial Palace was perfect. We had dinner on the terrace overlooking the lake almost every night. And enjoyed some R&R at the gorgeous spa! I don't have any pictures of the spa but the treatments we had were perfection, and the small indoor pool + sauna and steam room made for a perfect treat yo' self day.
