Perfect autumn break
A big thank you to our hosts, the cottage was lovely, well equipped, comfortable and very clean. The area was beautiful with amazing scenery. We especially enjoyed the views from the Dent du chat, the boat trip from Chanaz and a soothing afternoon spent at the thermal baths in Aix les Bains... Five days wasn't enough!
Lovely house with good sized rooms and well equipped.
Loved the property but the location was a problem for us. It was quite remote, half hour round trip to get a baguette and difficult to go out to dinner and drive back on the twisty road at night. We adapted by going out to lunch instead, lots to see and do in the area and lovely hosts.
Thank you for the review Ray. We are pleased that you loved the property. I'm sorry the location didn't suit you but for many the quiet rural location is one of its attractions. I do think that a 15 minute drive to 'le Bourget du lac' (bakery, lakeside restaurants, postoffice...) and a 25 minute drive to the city of Chambéry is reasonable, and don't take this the wrong way but "twisty roads" come with the territory!
That said, we will hopefully soon be providing our guests with freshly home baked bread and croissants for breakfast and pizza on demand.
It was nice having you & Jenny stay, enjoy the rest of your holiday and have a safe journey back to Australia.
A happy and pleasant stay
As a couple we had an enjoyable stay. We would like to come back to the area. The location of the house is good if you are looking for a quiet hamlet stay. If town shops are what you want this may disappoint you. The whole area around Lac du Bouget is stunning. iIf you want access to quieter beaches than Aix les Bains, then Conjux just 15 minutes away is good with safe, clear and supervised swimming for kids (and adults). The house was immaculate and well presented. Jim and Rose were very helpful and willing to provide practical information. Excellent and spectacular sites (and sights) such as the Dent du Chat and Mont Revard not to far away. Good walking area too. Three lakes within the area. Lac du Bouget (the best,,) Annecy (way to busy and crowded) and Lac du lit du Rio near Belley.
The property over all was superb and the surrounding area was beautiful.
The owners were very helpful and could not have done more to make our stay more relaxing.
A few things to note and do not let these put you off in any way they are just observations, when reading the Home and away website ad, it looks like the property has a microwave and an oven because of the columns. It is a microwave oven, This may limit some cooking options and was something I did not spot.
Also the ad says towels provided, we did get an email before travel to say they would not be provided, but it was a consideration when booking, as space is a big issue when there are 5 in a car.
Also a big consideration was internet with 3 teenageers, there is internet but it is very very slow.
We would definitely return and would recommend it to friends and family.
Thank you for the review Gary and we do hope that you will return (I could do with some more gardening advice!!), also thanks again for the boat!
I think you must have misread the email we sent you before you arrived, it does say that towels are provided but we suggest you bring your own as well. This is mainly because we didn’t want our towels used at the beach etc. There were actually five towels in the cupboard under the bathroom sink, you must have missed them. To avoid confusion we now just state that towels are provided.
We’re working on the internet speed, maybe satellite, not quite sure yet, oh the joys of country life.
Amazing Christmas stay
We spent our Christmas at this property and it was one of our best Christmas break we had. This house have a lovely character and located in a quiet location surrounded by the forest and mountains.
Property is close to a Chambery city where is lots to do(places to visit and nice charming restaurants to eat) and it's only 30 min drive to a ski resort, which is nice for a families with a small children.
Over all I would like to say big Thank you for Jim and his wife for helping us through our stay, even know that it was a Christmas.
Definitely will come back and highly recommended for others.
