Do any boats operate on Lake Annecy in February?

We will be there 19 Feb to 22 Feb and wondering if we can visit some of the other towns/ villages on the lake via boat. Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm afraid the answer is no. There are buses (limited) or you can hire a car (probably the easiest at this time of the year). Don't expect much to be open in the villages. It is very much a summer destination (they are missing a trick!)...

There is plenty open in Annecy. Our favourite was Chez Mamie Lise and the Coupole, not for the service but for the food! :)

If you like fondues then the Freti is great!

Have a nice time and if you get a car then make sure to go up to the Col de la Forclaz - great views of the lake!

The boats of the "compagnies des bateaux" start the 2013 season on 16 February; you can find more info on their website: http://www.annecy-croisieres.com/en.html

Unfortunatly, their 2013 brochure is apparently only avaible in French for the moment.

Annecy is my hometown and I wish you a nice stay there and a memorable "cruise" on the Lake of Annecy.

That boat only does an hour, you can't visit other towns with it - it doesn't stop anywhere. The Omnibus that goes around the lake doesn't start until the end of April.
