Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Space 25,000 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

5 1/2 Bedrooms + 2 living rooms + terrace, 2 full Bathrooms+1 shower,(Sleeps 12)

- 'Family house de charme' :3 mn walk from the lake, beach and mountain hike trails; 3 mn walk from the village center (shops and restaurants)

- You will enjoy breakfast in the sun in the garden, lunch in the shade of beautiful huge trees along the cool river, diner on the large and protected terrace with a beautiful view on the lake.

- Your days and nights will profit from the calmness of the area. You will be able to reach most activities safely walking on streets with very limited traffic.

- You will be renting the house of a family of 5 who loves quality of relationships, the charm of houses with roots and the practice of sports: Conviviality, cocooning, simplicity, easy connections have been the spirit of the remodeling of the house. (The house was initially a 18th century farm; In 1910, a luxury lake villa was added; We modernized the house in 2003)

Ideal to rest and for outdoors activities: The village is a summer vacation resort with a supermarket, numerous restaurants and hotels, some antique, art and specialty stores. A very quiet area, built in the XIIth century around an Abbaye, on the lake in a protected bay. Great for a rewarding rest.

It is also a paradise for people who love outside activities. Within a radius of 1 to 5 miles you find an incredible array of activities either linked to nearby mountains (hiking, canyoning, rock-climbing, paragliding, biking) or to the lake (beach activities, swimming, water skiing, sailing, tennis). Two golfs, one in Talloires, one in Giez are 15mn drive away.

A tradition is to bike around the lake - 41 km . (2/3 of the tour is presently equipped with a cycling trail).

An interesting area for tourism and shopping : - Annecy is a beautiful town (the Venice of the Alpes with an interesting old town and castle). Easy to access by car, bus or boat service.

- Geneva, Switzerland with its international and luxury shopping streets, watch and art museum is one hour highway car drive.

- The stupendous Chamonix nestled under the MontBlanc, with its fantastic views, gondola rides, beautiful hikes is also one hour highway drive away.

The pleasures of a French Alps country house: We are a family from the area and in love with its Alpine culture. We have remolded the house for our own pleasure in the most convivial setting possible to allow happiness, rest and fun.

Just what we were looking for in a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a wonderful stay here. Plenty of space, charming house, well located for the lake. We were four couples, each with a toddler. They loved running in the garden and going down to the lake. Bruno was a great host and arranged extra high chairs and cots, as well as making good local recommendations. Lovely holiday.

We rented Bruno's lovely home in August as a base for our extended family to have not just a holiday but also to attend our daughter's wedding ceremony on the middle Saturday.

Our daughter has lived in the Haute Savoie region for a few years now and we have visited her many times and enjoyed the stunning mountain scenery. However, nothing prepared us for the spectacular views from the house in Talloires. It was mesmerising to be able to see not only the mountains but also the lake.

As for Bruno's beautiful home, what can I say. Fabulous does not do it justice and doesn't convey the homely, comfortable, welcoming atmosphere of this wonderful house. It accommodated us all with ease but Bruno also enabled our daughter and her bridesmaids to spend the night before the wedding with us by providing extra mattresses. His kindness was much appreciated. The photographs of the wedding morning preparations at the house are stunning, particularly our daughter, in her wedding dress, descending the staircase to her assembled family!

An unforgettable holiday with memories that we will all treasure forever.

Beautiful property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to Talloires and Lake Annecy, but safe to say we were blown away with it all. The property is fantastic and compliments the beautiful location, with huge amounts of space which was more than adequate for our large family. The large terrace and balcony provide stunning views of both lake and surrounding mountains and provide a great space for meals or just relaxing. The location is also ideal, with just a 2 minute walk to local shops, or down to the lake front where you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake. Bruno was also a fantastic host, ensuring that everything was as good as could be and all our needs were met. Overall our trip was fantastic and I cannot fault it in any way, we certainly hope to be back soon!

Wet but fun week in a beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We had the extended family (6 adults and 3 children) for a week and the house was ideal - lots of space, beautiful views and a very helpful owner. Bruno bent over backwards to be helpful (e.g finding extra high chairs and cots) and the house has spectacular views and is in a beautiful village with a local boulangerie and excellent restaurants. Unfortunately the weather was very wet, but we had fun regardless and hope to return at some point and see a bit more sunshine!

I would recommend without hesitation.

A beautiful, convenient and comfortable home

We very much enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, comfortable and conveniently located family home in Talloires.

Bruno was a very friendly and helpful host who made sure to attend to our every need.

The house was very comfortable for a large group of people. We would definitely stay there again, and recommend this house to others!

Charming house with great views

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight people stayed at Les Rioutes for two weeks. The house is rustic and very charming with great views towards the lake. It is in a fantastic position just a short walk to shops, restaurants and most importantly the lake itself. The house is large, with plenty of bathrooms and bedroom space. The garden and terrace are ideal for eating and sitting to enjoy the view. The house is well equipped and sheets and towels are changed part way through the stay. Bruno the owner is great; he communicated well through the booking process and during our stay. We even had to call him when we got lost and he was very helpful. We also had Nina to cook one night, it was a delicious meal and reasonably priced. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday and will remember the house and holiday with great fondness.
