Absolutely fabulous in every way!

5 of 5
Eight long-time friends from Australia came together for a truly wonderful week at this luxurious lodge. Perfect in every way - the location, the views, the quality of the lodge itself and everything in it, and the marvellous amenities included, ensured we had just the best week. The Concierge service, both on arrival and as needed throughout the week, could not be faulted, and added significantly to the experience. We had great fun on the bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, etc and delighted in the local restaurants and markets, the small French villages along the bike paths, and the beautiful township of Annecy itself. We felt very special as we sipped champagne at sundown on our private jetty or dined on the spacious terrace. This truly was the holiday of lifetime and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Joan S.

Lovely house, great location for the lake and skiing.

5 of 5
We stayed at the property for a week during half term as an introduction to skiing for our 3 children. It is ideally located for a 20 minute drive to the slopes of La Sambuy, or you can catch the bus that goes there twice a day. So we spent the mornings at Lake Annecy and the afternoons skiing! The accommodation is lovely, well decorated, warm and cosy and with lots to keep the kids amused. Thank you to Natalie for meeting us the next morning after we arrived late the previous night due to the drive from Calais, to help settle us in and orientate us to the area. You have a gorgeous house and just let us know if it comes up for sale!
