Enjoyed our recent stay in Annecy at Isabelle's apartment. The apartment was clean and the location is fantastic. There are some compromises, but the location and quality goes a long way to making up for these and I would happily recommend it.
Location couldn't be better. Straight into the old town, beautiful little streets and some fantastic options for breakfast (giant pain aux raisins!) and also for dinner as this area comes to life. Even in late September, it's evidently worth booking a table.
Space is good. It's a studio apartment in a small location but it's surprisingly spacious and well lit. I'd say it's larger than the photos suggest. The balcony is nice to sit out on.
Comfortable bed, which is probably the most important thing when on holiday!
Isabelle is a good owner. There are some things which could be better, but Isabelle was eager to help and when we had a problem having run out of hot water (small tank), she found a solution and contacted us so we could override the system.
Quite noisy - not from the street (you're well shielded from this), but from neighbouring apartments. You hear every movement from the people upstairs and other neighbours as they come into the building. Something to be aware of but not a deal breaker - it's an old building.
Limited access - we had to be very specific on our arrival time to gain access. Had to be between 2pm and 4pm, at a pre-agreed time. It suited us to arrive early, but would have been good to know this up front. Worth making contact early if you're travelling a distance. Maybe a key box solution might be good?
Cleaning - the apartment is really clean and I always leave places as tidy as I find them. That said, I was surprised that we HAD to clean the apartment (hoover, clean kitchen, clean bathroom) or be charged an additional 50 Euros. I'm happy with this model, I just think it should be positioned as part of the booking so you're not surprised.
Overall, I really enjoyed Annecy and my staying in this apartment.
The accommodation is very well located being just an 8 minute bus ride from the centre of Annecy. The flat is located on the second floor of a private block of flats with free external parking immediately outside. We understand that secure parking may be available in an underground car park beneath the building. There is a lift giving access to the second floor accommodation.
The quality of the accommodation is superb and of a very high quality. The photos don’t fully show the quality of the furnishings which again are of a very high quality. Everything that is required to stay here was supplied. Sheets and bedding were of a good quality and provided at a reasonable cost. The kitchen is fitted with every modern appliance including dishwasher, washing machine, oven, electric hob and microwave. All the appliances were modern, clean and of good quality.
Nathalie communicated promptly at all times and was on site to greet us when we arrived. Likewise because we had to leave early in the morning Nathalie again arrived on time to complete the check out.
The accommodation is beautifully decorated and impeccably clean.
Although there is some slight noise at night from passing traffic this didn’t bother us. The accommodation is just a short drive from the local Leclerc supermarket for all your shopping requirements. There is also a local boulangerie just 3 minutes walk away which was very convenient for a coffee and a croissant in the morning.
We were very satisfied with our stay at Seynod and would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to other potential clients.
Thank you Nathalie for making our time here so enjoyable. We hope to return for a second visit.
