Where to go after Annecy?

My husband and I are going to Annecy from Paris next month for two nights and would like to also go somewhere else nearby for another two nights before heading back to Paris. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Head for Beaune or Dijon in the Burgundy region which is on your route back to Paris. Beaune is about a 2-1/2 hour drive from Annecy by autoroute.

Never been to Lyon but I know it's supposed to be nice so if that's what you like then nothing wrong with that.

Thanks for your help. There are just too many beautiful places in France, which makes it incredibly hard to decide where to go. I really think any place would be a great choice.

How about Geneva? It's in Switzerland but only a minor detour on the road back to Paris.

I would definitely go for Lyon - restaurants, sightseeing and really lively. Then a very fast tgv back to Paris from there.
