Colmar or Annecy

Jump to last reply

I'm debating about an 8-10'ish day trip to France at the end of June, with a destination of Colmar or Annecy. I would land in Geneva or Zurich, so Annecy has a more favourable distance with it being only half an hour from the Geneva airport, whereas Zurich to Colmar is a 2 hour drive. I love quaint villages, places to walk and/or bike, markets, pretty views, a terrace, a quaint gite or apartment to rent. I plan on renting a car so that I can have a home base and roam around (not too far away since my trip is a short one) and see other villages close by. Reading the forums, I read about several villages close to Colmar that sound right up my alley (Riquewihr, Eguisheim). I haven't heard about villages to see close to Annecy, but I would bet there are some nice ones.

Annecy sounds like it may be a bit too touristy compared to Colmar? Any input would be appreciated. Also, any recommendations on a cute place to stay with a lot of charm in a good location (preferably under $150 Cdn per night for a studio or 1 bedroom).

Thanks so much!
