Stupendous!

  • 5 of 5

Marlene's vacation home, Elmira, is a truly magical vacation spot. Located in the stunning village of Menthon St. Bernard, it is a super fantastic spot for an active family holiday. We have enjoyed many summer and winter vacations there over the years surrounded by spectacular mountains, pristine air, while overlooking picturesque Lake Annecy. The home is close to skiing, swimming, horseback riding, biking, hiking, go-carting, an adventure park, waterskiing, and much, much more. The close-by grocery store, 8' a 8', has all the delicious food you could ever want to prepare complete gourmet meals. Additionally, the picturesque town of Annecy, which is just a few minutes drive, has shopping and restaurants galore! However, make sure you make it back to Elmira for a late afternoon glass of champagne overlooking your kids swimming in the fabulous pool while the sun sets spectacularly over Lake Annecy in the distance. You won't find a better vacation spot or home than that of Marlene and Gary's. Marlene knows the area extremely well and will insure that your holiday meets all your expectations. Her home easily accommodates multiple families so gather your family and friends and go and enjoy!

Fabulous!!!

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed in this lovely home in July of 2013 and loved it so much, we booked it again for the new year's holidays of 2013/2014!! Snow or sun, I can't say enough good things about this home, amenities and location. Well-equipped with beautiful furnishings and a wonderful floor plan for many guests, offering great space for entertaining and also for privacy. The pool with slide was a big favorite and the adults enjoyed sunset cocktails on the deck overlooking both the pool and mountains. The views here are sublime! Although the home feels remote, one of the best things about its location is being able to walk in to town every morning for fresh croissants and for dinner at night. You can walk to the Lake as well. In July we spent lots of time on Lac Annecy, waterskiing and paddle boating. Skiing in nearby La Clusaz is easily accessible and the town is charming in both summer and winter. There is SO much to do in the area you need at least a month..in each season! Do your family a favor and book this house! You'll want to keep going back too! (Booking our time again for July 2015!)

Spacious family house by beautiful Lake Annecy

  • 5 of 5

Situated in one of the most beautiful areas in France, this house is brilliant for large family holidays for those who enjoy lakes and mountains. On the edge of the charming village of Menthon St Bernard, it is superbly located to enjoy the outdoor life whilst being a short hop into Annecy.

Although it was a bit chilly in October to swim in the lake (which looks well set up for summer water sports) or lounge by the generous sized pool in the extensive garden, we nevertheless enjoyed glorious sunny days and fabulous autumn colours. It was warm enough to have breakfast in sunshine on the back terrace looking up at the mountains behind the house. Hikes in the area include obligatory stunning mountain & lake views. The drive to the nearest Ski station is only 25 mins so we are considering coming back in the winter.

The kitchen is well equipped and has crockery and cutlery to feed an army! The spacious, vaulted lounge is great for family games and sing songs and there is plenty of terrace furniture for outdoor eating.

Marlene is a delightful and responsive owner for whom nothing it too much trouble.

Menthon St Bernard is a 5min walk for the morning croissants and surprisingly well equipped for food shopping for such a tiny place - we found everything we needed between the 8à 8, the excellent butcher, the deli and the dangerously delicious patisserie. Clearly the locals are a gourmet lot. Highly recommend a meal in Le Confidential - but you must book as it is popular.

Beautiful chalet

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in menton more than once, each time we go we are so pleased with this property.

We went once in summer and a few times in winter. It is the perfect chalet to stay with family and/or friends.

The lake is close by and the ski station was perfect for my family.

I highly recommend staying here!

Thank you for the wonderful comfortable holiday.

Wonderful house, beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here a few months ago with my family (there were four of us) and it was amazing. At first the size and vastness of the house was a bit intimidating, but once we were used to it, we had no problems. The trampoline and swimming pool were fun to use and we went on frequent walks down to the charming town nearby. Very relaxing, I would definitely go again. It seems like the perfect place for skiing.

Everything a family could want!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this place. We felt right at home from the moment we stepped through the door. This house is totally equipped for a family of all ages! There is a double tree house that the kids loved, a trampoline, table tennis, and swimming pool that we all enjoyed! I just opened the doors and the kids were outside playing all day! (There is also wifi but we had no time for the internet!) The house is so big, we were only 5 people but I could imagine this place easily managing 15 or more guests.

We BBQ'ed on the deck and sat outside to eat and take in the breathing views of the mountains and chateau. The owners were a pleasure to work with, Marlene made sure everything was just right for our visit.

We took a train to Annecy and then a taxi to the house, we were going to rent a car the next day but found we didn't really need one because we could walk to the Lake and to restaurants and shops, even to the bus stop to take us back into Annecy, which we did one day. The walks are beautiful and everything I mentioned was no more than 10 minutes away. I found the local people in the village and shops very nice and helpful. The house and the area kept was quite occupied for the 5 days we were there. However there are lots of things to do in the area that will require a car so we will get one next time. When we left we hired a taxi to take us back to the train station. Overall is was a super easy, fun and relaxing holiday. Thank you!
