The outlook over the garden is pretty and waking to birdsong was a treat. Small but has everything you need. Isabelle was very easy to deal with and all arrangements were smooth. I do speak soem French though.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The property is perfect distance away from Lake Annecy so that it is convenient to get to the lake and shops/cafes etc when you want but that it provides peace and quiet too. It is located half was up a hill and this provides you with stunning views of the surrounding area. The gite is equipped with everything you need and is comfortable and clean. There is a large main room with a sofa that can be used as a bed, comfortable chairs and a coffee table. Located the other side of this room is the kitchen area and a large kitchen table and chairs that would comfortably seat six people. There is a full sized oven and grill which you can use either as gas or electric or both and a microwave if you prefer. Also supplied is a kettle, coffee maker, toaster, iron, full sized fridge freezer and a washing machine which is extremely helpful if you cycle. The bedroom has plenty of cupboard space and there is lots of additional bedding provided to cover all temperatures. The bathroom has a shower toilet and sink. The gite is heated with adjustable radiators and the host left the heating on and left it to us to control the individual radiators. We found this provided the perfect temperature for us. The host Ken was happy to share his knowledge of both walking and cycling with us and was kind enough to take us on a bike ride around the lake pointing out places of interest as we went. We took up a number of his suggestions including walking up nearby Col de la Forclaz, cycling up Col de l'Arpettaz with it's numerous hairpins, and catching the train to the top of Montenvers-Mer de Glace to see the glacier located in Chamonix. There are plenty of other things to do and the local area is fascinating and beautiful. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a peaceful holiday, in beautiful countryside and particularly walkers and cyclists. Reading others reviews complaining about the lack of curtains and the church bells ringing - we would suggest using the traditional wooden shutters on the gite which block out all the light and we found the church bells to be unobtrusive and pleasing on the ear. If we return to this area of France would certainly use again.
