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.

It is comfortable, well equipped and in a quiet location. It was nice to sit in the garden with the barbeque and the roll down awning provided much welcome shade. We met Celine and her husband who are charming, welcoming and very friendly.

My daughter and I went for a weeks paddleboarding and canoeing on the lake, which is two minutes from the house. The place was spotless and well equipped. We barbecued almost every evening looking at the views of the mountains and paragliders floating by. Will be going back next summer!!!
