Julie Clarke purchased this house in 2006
We were on holiday at lake Annecy for the 2nd year when we viewed and bought our holiday home. We love the area and have enjoyed many holidays with friends, summer and winter.
Our house is full of character and has a very homely feel about it. It is in a great location with easy access to both Lake Annecy and the mountains.
Just to say we had a fabulous week and the house was great, loads of space and bags of character. The location is perfect with so many great walks and cycling routes on the doorstep. It was a tonic for the soul to wake up every morning and look out at the views of the mountains all around. I am pretty sure we will be back sometime! Ryall family (June 09).
Dear Julie,Thanks for letting us rent your house. We'll be BACK. We absolutely loved it, the kids too,the garden and goats were a hit. Your neighbour was lovely and everything was really!! And I am definitely in love with the house! You'll hear from us again. Best wishes, Jose. June 2011.
The house was absolutely beautiful, comfortable, well equipped and in such a lovely spot. The only negative was that we were only there for a week. I could have quite happily stayed for a month! Rowland family - Aug 13
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.
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.
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.
We stayed here for a week in June with our 2-year old daughter and had a wonderful time. Unlike most places we have stayed in before, the property actually looks even better in reality than in the photos.
Giez is so peaceful and we enjoyed ambling down the lane to visit the cows and watching the kites soar ahead. The house and garden are perfect for young children and very safe. We didn't venture out in the evening, but Annecy is an easy drive / cycle ride away. The scenery is truly stunning.
Have recommended Maison Giez to all our friends and hopefully we will be back again ourselves one day.
