hey hey TravelNana
gonna add some info about our stay, may work for you, you can decide.
we spent 6 nights in annecy sept/oct 2019 and loved it and all it's beauty. a little different than yours, we took train from paris to geneva, spent 2 nights and then a taxi to annecy.
we hired taxi-massingy.com gaelle is the owner, speaks english and great to deal with emails. we paid 95E for about half hour ride. the train was gonna take 2 1/2 hours with 2 stops. it was all worth it. we went back to paris on the train for 8 days
also did a 5 hour private tour with her around lake to villages, had lunch at lafermedelacharbonniere.com
a rustic working dairy ranch, restaurant with glass floors to see cows below in stables, prix fixe special 24E, pizza oven on table with cheese made there, baguettes, potatoes and other goodies plus ice cream. was yummy and different.
pass castle at menthon st. bernard that disney visited which inspired disneyland's snow white castle
went to annecy castle, basilica in annecy where pope said a mass,
col dela forclaz (one of my favorites) stopped to watch hang gliders soaring above you and the lake, "alp" style homes in the green rolling hills with cows grazing the fields wearing cowbells, sounding like a concert, music to my ears since mom was a cowgirl growing up on a ranch on big island hawaii. bought 2 cowbells at gift shop, then a ride thru some mountain passes with view up high with snow on mountains
