Once you’ve explored Annecy old town and the beautiful lake, you have the campervan freedom to travel on to enjoy the surrounding areas of outstanding natural beauty.
Driving south will take you towards the Tarentaise Valley - well known for ski resorts, but it is incredibly beautiful in the summer.
Once you have hired your campervan from Annecy, we recommend camping in the mountains.
There are plenty of mountainside campsites at good altitudes with views of the stunning French Alps famed for Alpine flowers, cows and cheese making.
A Campervan Trip to Italy
When you hire a campervan in Annecy, it is well within your reach to drive over the mountains, and down into the Aosta Valley in Italy.
It is a stunning drive - up over the Col du Petit Saint Bernard into La Thuile. Well worth a visit and a fabulous bowl of pasta or a pizza!
You’ll notice the difference in culture when you arrive in Italy, even though the two countries are so close.
Why not also check out Chambéry, Grenoble or Lyon while you’re in the area?
Getting to Annecy and Transfer Details
Bonfire Vans can deliver your hired campervan to you either in Annecy or at a nearby train station. Gare d'Annecy is the main train station and there is also a great bus service into Annecy.
Geneva Airport is probably the best international airport to fly to in the summer, then get the train to Annecy (or a transfer with our sister company Mountain Rescue).
