Family holiday heaven!
Beautiful, characterful French house in breathtaking countryside. A stones throw from Lake Annecy and its many lakeside retreats. The house is spotless and has everything you could need. Will return for sure!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate it. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We would look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Comfortable, well equipt house
Stayed here for a week with young family in June 2017. The house was clean, very well equipt (travel cot and stair gate available) with a good layout and good size of rooms. The house is in a peaceful village and is in close proximity to the cycle path (easy flat route - 22km to Annecy). Plenty of outdoor activities in the surrounding area. The owners were very helpful and responded quickly to our queries. We would not hessitate to book again if we were in the area.
Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
Lovely property, beautiful location
We stayed with our 2 children and in laws. The house was very clean, well equipped including plenty of toys/games and situated in a lovely quiet area. We spent days at the lake only a short drive away and evenings sitting out. The owner was helpful and prompt in responding to queries and our security deposit was also returned extremely quickly on our return. Would definitely revisit.
Lovely character property and well located
Spent a week here with my wife and two children aged 15 and 11. We wanted a change from beach holidays and this place proved to be perfect. The property itself has loads of character and is very spacious. The kitchen area is fantastic and it is very well equipped. It was wonderful to wake up and see the mountains each morning.
The location is also brilliant. Lake Annecy is a short distance away and very easy to reach by the nearby cycle path. There is loads to do in the area - we spent a couple of days walking in the mountains and even managed to have a day in Geneva - about a 90 minute drive. We also spent some time in La Sambuy ski resort which is only 20 minutes away by car. The children loved the luge and we took the telesiege up the mountain where the views are breathtaking and there are some lovely walks. We would definitely recommend this property and a holiday in this part of France.
Perfect location and fantastic accommodation
This is a lovely well-equipped family home in a perfect location for walking, cycling and sightseeing. We instantly felt at home, and our children aged 8 and 10 appreciated the toys and DVDs. The property is well sited for the beaches and restaurants on Lake Annecy. There were so many fantastic walks around the area that we simply ran out of time. We would definitely recommend this property.
We love this house and area so much that we have returned for a second winter season. The house is perfect for our requirements - comfortable ,roomy and extremely well equipped ( even a travel cot for our first grandchild last year) .
Various friends and family visit us and it's so lovely sitting around large kitchen table with the stove lit.
Numerous ski resorts are less than an hours drive away ( the closest is under half an hour ) and it is a perfect location for hill walking , also convenient to the "Voie Verte" a walking and cycle path between Annecy and Albertville .
We spent summers in Annecy when our family were growing up so can confidently recommend the property at any time of the year as it is only minutes from beautiful lake Annecy and of course the city itself.
There is also a magnificent golf course in the historical village of Giez within walking distance with wonderful views of which one never gets tired.
Lake Annecy is 5 minutes drive from the property.
