In Annecy, close to the old town, the Compagnie des Bateaux du Lac d'Annecy invites you to get on its boats to discover magnificent landscapes, between lake and mountains… The boats Cygne, Savoie, Belle Etoile and Allobroge make you find the serene virtues of cruising thanks to the "Commented Big Lake Cruise" and "Omnibus Circuit" with short stops in the different villlages around the lake. Program is : Relaxation and Discovery... MS Libellule an its crew invite you to lunches or dinners dance on the lake. Meals are cooked during the cruise by the Chef Philippe Chirat in the modern kitchens of the MS Libellule Boat.

Beautiful scenery. Los of good information, albeit in French. It was a lovely way to see the lake. 2 hours on a comfortable boat circling the entire lake.
