Paris, Provence, and Nice- can we add Annecy?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. My husband and I will be spending 14 full days in France in June. Our rough itinerary is: Paris 4 days, Provence 4 days (likely based in a B and B near Uzes), and Nice 4 days (exploring other towns). That leaves us 2 days to play with and I've been looking at going to Annecy for two nights rather than just tacking on the days in one of the other locations. That would mean Paris to Annecy via TGV early morning, the rest of that day and night in Annecy, then a full day and night in Annecy. We would then likely leave the next morning for Avignon via TGV and we would be renting a car while in Provence. (I think this order of cities makes the most sense? We are flying home from Nice).

I am considering Annecy because it looks so beautiful and I would really like to do some major hiking and get a glimpse of the Alps. Initially I had just wanted one night in Annecy, but now I am thinking that this would not leave us enough time for a big hike. What are people's thoughts on this? Is the added travel time worth it for some hiking with what I hope will be spectacular views? Could we do it with just one night and two half days? I read something about a six hour mountain hike- La Tournette? Not sure where this leaves from or whether it will be easily accessible from Annecy given we won't have a car there. Any other hikes or recommendations on what to do there would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
