Doussard is a wonderful little town, located on the southern tip of the beautiful Lake Annecy.

Having warm sunshine everyday made it possible to sit outside a lot: the decking and chairs make up for the lack of a lounge area, and we were able to sit and read, watch the birds, insects and lizards, and enjoy amazing views of the valleys and mountains. Very quiet, apart from the tinkle of cow bells. Great walking country, views of Mont Blanc as you drive east away from the property, and lots of interesting places to visit. The owner was away on holiday, which was a shame, but his cat made us welcome! We were sad to leave.

The layout of the home and all it's amenities were perfect for our large group. Unfortunately, the cool weather prevented us from fully enjoying the lake but we spent the chilly evening watching a few sunsets! We also managed to take a three hour pontoon boat cruise around the lake, meeting our captain at the Ma Chez dock close by. Our cycling experience, starting with the bikes from BaseCamp, was spectacular! The rides into the Alps or circling the lake or taking the bike trail, right across the street offered something for everyone in our group. Thank you for your list of cycling shops for forgotten items and warmer gear. You guys were so thorough with all house and area info, things to do, and restaurants. We experienced many good ones but the best was the chef who was able to come at the last minute and prepare a delicious dinner for twelve. In Annecy we enjoyed the market and shopping...such a quaint city. We all agreed this area deserves another trip! Hiking, cycling, the lake, so many sporting activities... Thank you both for helping make this a memorable time! Hopefully, we will see you again soon! Best, Debbe Myers
