From the moment we saw a picture of the house we knew it was for us and we were not disappointed. The lovely Housekeeper was there to welcome us when we arrived and the moment we entered the house we wanted to own it. The place was absolutely spotless, well equipped, well cared for and beautifully furnished. A lot of thought had gone into providing for all our needs and was more than large enough for our family of 8.
The location was perfect, a friendly little French village overlooking Annecy and and mountains beyond. The views were spectacular. The village has a little shop two minutes away where we bought our bread and croissants each morning and an excellent restaurant Le CLos du Chateau where we dined on our last night.
Our family is energetic and from day one it was all systems go. Swimming and pedloing in the lake, luging in the mountains, zip wiring, running and cycling. For me just reading a book on the terrace looking at the view, sauntering around Old Annecy and lunching in one of the many little restaurants or sitting by the lake was my idea of heaven. There is also lots to do too if the weather is dull or rainy.
It was an amazing holiday and catered for everyone from 8 to 70. The accommodation was the best we have ever had and my thanks go to the owner for making the booking process so easy and giving us the opportunity to stay in her wonderful home. Must not forget to mention the lovely housekeeper who was always available if we needed help and kept us in beautifully laundered linen.
Must return as the family missed out on the parapenting. There are so many things to do in the Savoie area both summer and winter. One visit isn't enough. I have been coming to the area over a period of 25 Years but this holiday was really special sharing it with the whole family.
