WATER SKI AND WAKEBOARD HOLIDAYS

Waterskiing and wakeboarding is very popular and easy to do from the front of The Lodge. In fact you can keep your boat directly in front!! Book our mooring early or ask about ski boat hire. Adventure sports are everywhere, from paragliding to canoeing. In winter ask about our SKI SAFARIS where we can take your group by bus to a different resort everyday.

Cycling: Biking Tours and Biking Holidays - TOUR DE FRANCE COUNTRY

Base yourself in the middle of some of the most stunning cycling country in the world. Enjoy the same clear air as the tour de France cyclists! Cycle around the easy cycling track that encompasses the lake or tackle stunning mountain passes. The Tour de France comes through the Alpes not far from us and in 2009 came past our door! For a taste see this site. Cycling is fantastic in this area.

Fishing: FISHING

Fishing has happened on Lake Annecy for the last 18,000 years. The clear water of Lake Annecy has been nurtured to encourage the return of several rare species of fish. Lake Annecy is said to have the cleanest water in Europe thanks to forward thinking in the 1950s. The main source of Lake Annecy comes past our hotel via our canal, from Doussard. Push your boat off from the front of the hotel first thing every morning, return for breakfast to your waterfront housel and then head back out after breakfast and spend the day drifting slowly around the calm waters stopping in for lunch or drinks at one of the stunning little shore front villages. Many streams flow in the mountains around Lake Annecy within a radius of 30 kilometres so variety is key. Main fish are the Fera and the Omble.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Charlotte,

We are back in rainy, cold Australia.

Thankyou for the bond repayment. We had the most wonderful time staying at your place at Doussard. We are really missing France and especially Doussard. It was such a magical place. We would love to write a review for your house, I could rave for hours, and have been doing so. It really is the most amazing place for a large family group.

Hope all is well with you and the family.

Thankyou for looking after us so beautifully,

Sally

Loved this spot. Very beautiful.

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic set up for my group of cyclists. We loved the beautiful house with ensuites and a number of living areas. It meant no-one was in each other's hair. 3 parts to the garden again so we could spread out. Terrace, with lounge chairs, on the water for relaxing and swimming after some hard climbs. Wood fired hot tub next to the lake! The rides were just insane and so numerous. For those not inclined to cycle the mountains the piste up to Annecy was great fun. Some sailed and waterskiied. Went up to Mont Blanc and did the cable car. Lunch at the restaurants around the lake, especially the great place up the road from us, called Chez ma Cousine. They do cocktails and 18€ set lunch menus right next to the lake. We had a couple of private meals catered for in the house. Great fun. Explored Geneva and it's lake. So much to do that 1 month wouldn't have been enough time. Lake Annecy is just so stunning. We can't wait to come back and do more.

Right on the water, amazing!

One of the most special spots we have ever been to. Lake annecy is incredible itself but The Lodge is in one of the best spots. Garden right on the lake, kayaks, sailing school nearby, boat mooring, fabulous restaurant 200 m away and then the ferry to Annecy. We could not fit in everything and we had 2 weeks. Shopping great in Annecy and Geneva plus great day trips like Mont Blanc. Perfect for active people, families or those looking to just sightsee. The house is so well set up. Ensuites for each room and big country kitchen plus huge built in bbq. We were a group of 3 families and we had lots of space to spead out to and everyone was happy with lots to do. Highly recommended and we will be back.

We are completely waterfront on Lake Annecy in the tiny hamlet of Bout du Lac, which means end of the lake. Our nearest village is Doussard approx 3 kms which is a lovely village with a variety of small shops such as bakeries and tabacs plus a small supermarket. We are across from a long wonderful cycling track which goes to Annecy or Albertville, ask about where you can book bikes in advance to avoid missing out. Amazing cycling routes (the tour de France went past our door in 2009), excellent swimming, sailing, paragliding, water skiing activities, walks, diving and terrific shops and restaurants in and around Annecy. Sailing school and port around the corner door with a multitude of boats and activities. Pedalos, yachts, speed boats. Waterskiing and wakeboarding lessons on lake. VTT, downhill biking in the hills all around. 2 lovely golf courses nearby, Giez (4km) and Talloires (8kms). Ski Chamonix, La Clusaz, Meribel, Courchevel, Mont Blanc, Val Thorens in winter, within 1 hour.
