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.

We had a fantastic time, so much for the kids to do. Loved riding bikes along the bike track into Annecy and they all had so much fun on the lake, windsurfing, swimming etc. Great base to explore the area. The house was beautifully decorated, lots of space, really nice hosts, highly recommend a holiday here!

It was spotlessly clean, the beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. A washing machine is available for use in the cellar. We loved the location. It was quiet and we enjoyed walking along the lakefront when we went into the old town. It is tucked under the mountain so there is a beautiful view of the woods from the small terrace. The great weather and spectacular autumn colours helped. The only problem was the WiFi which is available only near the door, and even then it was intermittent. But otherwise, no problems at all and highly recommended.
