Make a holiday rental chalet or gite in Doussard, France your home away from home

Doussard is a wonderful little town, located on the southern tip of the beautiful Lake Annecy. Lake Annecy is a real holiday favourite, not only for the stunning Alpine scenery of the Drome region of the Rhone-Alpes, France, but also for its peaceful atmosphere and unrivalled access into both the French and Swiss Alps.

Things to do in Doussard, France

Doussard itself has all that you would need to enjoy a self catering Doussard holiday. There are a great range of local shops, bars, boulangeries and even a supermarket in the town, meaning that if you are looking for a week of pure peace and beauty, there is no need to venture far from your Doussard gite at all. There is also an excellent market on a Monday morning.

Lake Annecy itself provides a huge amount of entertainment for anyone staying in a Doussard gite during the summer months. Simply enjoying a long leisurely lunch beside the Lake is enough for many, but activity is never far away should you wish it. The lake waters are beautifully clear, if a little cold at the start of the summer, and swimming is hugely popular. There are also many boat trips across the lake, and sailing lessons and boat hire can be arranged.

There are also two excellent golf courses within a short drive of a Doussard villa. Lac d'Annecy golf course and golf de Giez are both open to visitors.

Skiing day trips are also great from Doussard accommodation. Some of France's finest ski resorts, including Megeve and Courcheval, are within just half an hour, making Doussard an excellent base from which to explore the mountains, by ski in winter and by foot or mountain bike in summer.

Place to visit from Doussard, France

Doussard is a magnificent base for exploration. Both Switzerland and Italy can easily be visited in a day from a Doussard gite. Geneva is just an hour away, and for pure French indulgence, Thones, a wonderful French market town, offers a wonderfully entertaining afternoons exploration.

Flights to Doussard, France

Geneva Airport, which receives direct flights from airports across the UK, is just an hour from a Doussard villa. The drive is a beautiful one, and having your own car or hire car is strongly recommended whilst staying in a Doussard gite, just to ensure you can get the very most from the whole area.

spacious, close to lake, beach, cycle path and at least 2 great restaurants

4 of 5
This property is really good value especially if you can fill it, it is wonderfully close to amenities including beach, restaurants, cycle hire , nature walks and stunning views but on hot evenings the noise from the parties on the lake shore is a drawback. The garden could do with a little tidy up and there are a few tired/broken fixtures (washing line, big awning) but overall it's a sensibly priced, well positioned house and was perfect for 6 adults and 6 kids (we brought one extra inflatable bed to avoid older kids sharing the double). The high breakage deposit caused me some stress (getting 820 euros together on day 1!!!!) and would be more understandable if the property were in top condition but there was no problem with getting it back and UK banks don't charge for euro cheques if you push hard in branch. We brought duvet covers, pillow cases and towels to save 16 euros pp and that worked well (square pillows but UK ones fit). I would absolutely recommend this house above others we considered on the other side of the lake due to the location and sensible inside space. For runners, casual and serious cyclists and beach lovers, a base here and a planned trip to Talloires gives you the best of everything.

Lovely lakeside apartment, perfect base for exploring

5 of 5
We had a great stay. The apartment is well decorated and had everything we needed. It was a perfect base for us to explore the lake and the beautiful surrounding villages. It has a wonderful location on the lake...perfect for swimmming and watching the sunset with a gin and tonic! Emma was really helpful and the communication was great. Thoroughly recommend!
