The apartment itself is very clean and modern. It had everything we needed for our stay including shower gel, towels, hairdryer and a washing machine! Victor responds to any queries very quickly which is appreciated and instructions on getting to, accessing and leave the apartment were very clear. The apartment would benefit from a kettle although we managed with the hob and there is a nespresso machine which we enjoyed! The wifi is also a little slow but these are very minor points as generally the apartment is really nice and we would definitely recommend it for a stay in Annecy.

Very comfortable beds - and plenty of clean cutlery and crookery. The only improvment I can think of would be to provide a couple of comfortable chairs with a higher seat. The 2 low red chairs pictured were difficult to get out of for older people and the tubing became uncomfortable under your legs if you sat for any length of time in them.
