It's very easy to find the apartment and the complex is conveniently located about 15mins drive from the southern end of Lake Annecy. We booked it just as a place to sleep with the added bonus of a pool for the children. They loved the pool (and the indoor pool too) and also enjoyed the table tennis and trampoline. It is rather cosy for 4 to share, but it we went there knowing that and considering is very compact, Jane has equipped it with just about everything you need. And everything there was clean and in good working order. There are supermarkets nearby and you are split for choice for local restaurants, cafes and things to do in the area. You do need a car to really explore the area and make the most of it. If you're into outdoors sports, there there is loads to do from cycling, to climbing, to paragliding, swimming, boating, summer luges and many of the local ski resorts keep their lifts open so the views from the top of the mountains are spectacular. We had a great time.

Living "areas" outside were spot on too...the garden is not directly overlooked and perfect for a bit of a chill out and eating outside (we BBQ'd every night). The cycle trail is about 1 km away and local shops etc a 10 minute drive. Being in the centre of the village was very colloquial but also peaceful....the cows commute through the village every day and are close enough at night for the bells to usher you to sleep. Well equipped with all you need (including WIFI, bikes and locks, golf clubs).....REALLY REALLY recommended ..... thank-you the Dent Family/
