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.

Every treasured photo is like a beautiful postcard. Equipped with all the gear to help us experience every aspect of our fabulous location right on the lake, we swam every day, paddle boarded or just relaxed and took in the marvellous vista. Some of us hiked to Forclaz and others enjoyed the manual and electric bikes which were a great hit as we explored the local villages. We loved the convenience of the local restaurant, Chez Ma Cousine and the ferry service to villages around the lake. We have special memories of the beautiful township of Annecy. We would, and have already, recommended this fabulous house to family, friends and business associates.
