Annecy Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2+BR 1BA Sleeps up to 6

Spacious apartment and totally new kitchen!

This flat works out well on a number of fronts: location, size, parking, and cost.

'Location' best describes the situation of this charming, center of town apartment located just minutes from canceled and historic old town Annecy, France. The apartment is located IN Annecy, not nearby. It's within a desirable area of Annecy nicknamed the Golden Triangle. The apt. is on the convenient elevated ground floor of a 1930s building and right across the street from the weekly market. It is spacious, comfortable and correct, but not pretentious; high ceilings, charm and a private terrace. The kitchen is all new and well supplied. Convenient free wireless internet and long distance calls to over 70 countries land line phones. Private parking lot is right outside. Our rates are priced to book the flat.

Nearest airport: Geneva. Train station: 10 min. walk. Discounts and laundry available for longer stays. Email or call now and you'll receive a prompt, helpful reply. We want to help make your trip a good one!

Annecy: The Old Towne is loaded with charm! Boutiques, designer shops, galleries and cafés line the canals and the walking area near the lake. The pedestrian mall walk culminates at a modern shopping center 'Courier' and theatre complex. The train station is also next door. Grocery stores are in both the Old Towne as well as the Courier mall. All within walking range. Restaurants serve the traditional 'savoyard' dishes as well as classic french — some until the wee hours of the morning. Just minutes from the apartment is beautiful Lac Annecy and Le Paquier, the large park area with train and carousel rides. The Pacquier is host to picnics, soccer matches, events, walks, and benches to just relax and look out at the lake and surrounding mountains. A Galeries Lafayette shopping experience, along with cafeteria, post office and other shops, is a two minute walk the other direction. Close to the Old Towne, but just far enough away to feel like you are in a residential 'non-tourist' area. Voila!

Around Annecy: If you plan to stay long enough to do some day trips or have a eurrail pass, the train station is a ten minute walk. There is a TGV 'fast train' to Paris from Annecy. If you arrive by car, a space is provided for parking. If you choose to rent bicycles a locked shed is available for storage or, if you prefer, you may store them carefully in the apt. It's on an elevated ground floor, meaning about 6-7 steps above ground level. If you want to take the bus, the stop is across the street. If you want to do more sightseeing by car, however, you are about an hour from Mt. Blanc, Europe's highest peak, and the Mt. Blanc tunnel which takes you into Italy. Switzerland is 30 minutes north, the French Riviera is about a four hour drive south and the Burgundy wine area is about three hours. Albertville, Chamonix, and Grenoble, all winter Olympic hosts, are all nearby. Geneva, an incredible, historic city, is less than an hour away. Your options are limitless from this excellent location.

14 Blvd du Lycée: This apartment is a find and we bought it because we love the location, the high ceilings, the 'extra' room, and the private terrace. The apartment is comfortable and correct, but not overly pretentious or luxurious. There is a queen size bed in one bedroom, two single beds in a second and a sofa bed in the 'extra' room, which doubles as a TV/office room. There is also a portable crib. The kitchenette, while compact, is completely supplied with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, dishes and appliances. The toilet is separate from the bathroom, which has a cabin shower, sink and shelves. Towels are provided, as well as bedding. The living area is a combined living/dining room. Tall french doors open to steps to the fenced in private terrace with table, parasol and BBQ. We'll leave several brochures in different languages to help you get acclimated to Annecy and all the area offers. We're happy to talk to you in English or French. Free wireless internet. Cable TV. Free parking. Free calls.

About Karen Roalson

Hi! We're Craig and Karen Roalson. We both grew up in Iowa, (USA) and aside from living for three wonderful years in Annecy, France, we still live here. We moved to Annecy in 2002, with our two sons, 10 and 12 at the time. Our plan was to stay one year to help a non-profit group. We extended our stay to two years, then for a third! When it was time to move back to Iowa, we decided to try and buy an apartment so we could come back to visit the city we had so enjoyed. We thought we might be able to rent it to students as a rental agency assured us it would be easy to do so. However, for the first year it sat empty. We decided to rent it ourselves instead and, not to students, but to vacationers. It's been a lot of fun getting to meet people from all over and help them to have a nice stay in Annecy.

Karen Roalson purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Karen Roalson chose Annecy

Upon moving to France we didn't know where we would be living. When we arrived in Annecy, we immediately saw how fortunate we were. Then, after three years of living in Annecy, we talked about possibly finding a way to buy an apartment so we could come back. Annecy is in the Rhone-Alpes area of France which is a beautiful area, just about 30-40 minutes south of Geneva, Switzerland. The Olde Towne in Annecy is charming and there is always something going on around the lakefront. We felt like we knew the town well and knew what kind of location would be best. We fell in love with this apartment location, the little garden area, and the traditional French windows and high ceilings.

Convenient Annecy Apartment

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I recently spent four days at this apartment in Annecy and found it very central for all the things we wanted to do. Steve, the manager who lives upstairs, welcomed us promptly and showed us around the apartment. Parking directly outside was convenient for us to get luggage etc inside. Annecy in winter is cold but the apartment has ample heating and was very cosy. We loved being within walking distance of the old town and also supermarkets, boulangeries etc. Would recommend this apartment which is a 5 minute walk from the lake, parks etc.

Quiet and great cosy place

  • 4 of 5
We have stayed for one week with 3 teenagers during last winter and we all appreciated the location of this apartment, very close to the downtown Annecy (5 mm walk). The place is quit and silent, thanks to the good windows isolation. Heating is efficient and rooms are comfortable even if it looks old style furniture. We have appreciated the long term view of the owners who plans to refresh each year one room. The kitchen is very nice and convenient. Next time it should be the bathroom to be reworked. We appreciated as well that the apartment is very well equipped with books, useful advices and recommendations. We feel like at home and French are not used to it. If you are French we will recommend you to send payment directly to the French account of the owners in Annecy. It will safe time. Last point to be noted is the very friendly people leaving in the building and who will welcome you and give you any kind of support.

spacious, quiet, humble

  • 4 of 5
this was our first visit to annecy (or anywhere in france!) with our family of four (2 boys 2 and 5). for anyone expecting something fancy or remodeled, this is not it. it is clean, but very humble. the tiles are old and it is furnished very traditionally. but the apartment was definitely spacious enough for us. the portable crib and single beds were great. the larger bed was very firm, but i'll take firm over overly soft any day. the kitchen is very small with little to no counter space if you are cooking, but you make it work. i'd say the one big complaint we had is the great number of ants that were present this week. they are fast and though we would take great care to do the dishes and wipe down the tables, etc. after meals, we would still find them out and about in the mornings. the tile in the kitchen could definitely use some replacing or at the very least, fresh caulking.

it was very warm this week and the two fans in the bedrooms came in handy. additionally, the apartment stays very cool compared to outside. and we were amazed how quiet it was. aside from the front door of the building, which is pretty loud, you could not hear the neighbors at all. not a single footstep from above. and we were very happy to walk out to the fabulous market saturday morning right across the street. the wireless internet worked GREAT too. and as so many have noted, the owners and the caretakers, as well as the neighbors were all very kind and went out of their way to be helpful.

Great cozy apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here during a festival and it was simply fantastic! I have been to a lot of hotels and residences in Annecy, but this was really perfect.
The apartment was cozy but bigger than we expected so we had no problems when some friends came over for dinner. We had everything, appliances/towels/sheets and the rooms were clean. I admit that the bathroom is not super modern, but it is a real house and it felt good coming back here after a day of running around in Annecy. The owners and the couple who manages it are very nice and not at all intrusive. I reccomend it to all!

A good find in Annecy

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in this apartment for a week with our three young boys. We were impressed with the spaciousness and layout of the apartment, as well as the great location (5-7 min by foot to Lake Annecy, 5 more onto the Old Town). The kitchen and bathroom were a bit dated, but very clean, well-equipped and more than adequate for the purpose. The high ceilings, polished floors and doors onto the terrace gave the place a lovely "french" feel. A good playground directly across the street, plus on-site free parking helped make this a great choice for family travel. Overall, a very nice experience. I would stay here again and definitely recommend this, (and Annecy in general), to my friends as a good-value, comfortable place to stay.

Quiet- Clean- Good Location

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is quiet, clean, and spacious (for France). The building is from the 1930's and quite spare. It's charming in a quaint way. From a practical standpoint, the beds are hard (I liked this, my wife didn't) and the shower needs to be updated.
However, the owners are wonderfully helpful and accommodating, as are the caretakers who live in the apartment above. Our visit was overshadowed by poor skiing (the reason we came to Annecy), but we were pleased with our accommodations.
