    Some great ideas here! I’d love to check out the Christmas markets in Annecy (and why not add in lunch?) but the ones in Geneva Bastions and Carouge also sound tempting. I feel the holiday spirit coming on!

      The Annecy Christmas markets are really lovely. Make sure you go and see the sound and light show on the Hotel de Ville in Annecy too. I saw the Parc des Bastions market being set up and it looks great -it’s the first time for this market.
