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

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.

It is fully equipped, with all the kitchen, bathroom, linen and even entertainment essentials you need to make your stay very comfortable. It felt like being at home :-) We were within close distance to the French Alps - less than 2 hours drive to many of the popular ski resorts like Chamonix, the famous 3 Vallées and Megève and only an hour drive to Geneva. We were also very close to the mountains, where we could go for a beautiful hike and see the amazing views of the area from on high, or experience the snow without the crowds of the 3 Vallées. There’s a selection of supermarkets close by and other stores for any extras we needed during our stay. The owners, Stéphanie and Renaud are more than hospitable. They were ever so kind, helpful, accommodating, friendly and made our stay so much more enjoyable. We appreciated all they did for us and it was so great that they spoke fluent english for us non-French speaking tourists! We had such an incredible time and were extremely sad to bid farewell.....

The children loved the swimming pool which was heated perfectly and the ping pong table. Such a luxury to be able to walk for just a few minutes to the lake and the views were breathtaking. Can't wait to go back!

The position is fantastic & provides a truly relaxing environment to chill out while on vacation. The property is located at the foot of the arterial routes that lead to the ski resorts in the winter & also within 100 metres of cycling paths that lead to famous climbs completed in some of the Tour de France stages. The property is perfectly positioned to maximize use of the lake for boating, sailing or canoeing. The rooms are all fitted with en-suites that have been cleverly designed to create a sense of privacy. Large groups or families can can enjoy time together in the dining/lounge area but still enjoy privacy when required. Perfect place for an extended relaxing holiday.
