I had lots of great ice cream in Annecy, but the one that really knocked me off my feet was the Lavender ice cream from Chez Poustache. I had it with coconut, which worked really well.
Impossible to resist this charming bakery. I had Croissant and Pain au Chocolat. Best croissant of my holiday. oo, almost forgot - I had their tasty eggy olive bread too.
I have seen average reviews for this place, but that's not MY experience. Here, I had mussels, followed by Fois Gras Risotto and creme chartreuse for dessert - faultless throughout.
I could not resist this charming tiny restaurant, especially with outside seats, where I could watch the life and river flow past me. I had the Mushroom Fondue. HEAVY but beautiful.
The Château d'Annecy is a restored castle which dominates the old French town of Annecy in the Haute-Savoie département. It was bought by the town, restored and transformed into a museum. [Wikipedia]
