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!

It's very well equipped and comfortable with all the mod cons. Wendy and Paul are perfect hosts and are always helpful with enquiries. We spent two weeks a couple of years ago in the summer when the sun shone every day. There is so much to do in the area for all ages. I loved walking in the area where the scenery is stunning. Swimming in lakes, cycling, glaziers, paragliding etc. We have just returned from a winter break Feb 2017 where all 7 of us skied. Paul and wendy were very helpful with arranging lessons and hire equipment. Les allons and margeriaz ski resorts were about half an hours drive from the chalet and were perfect for all levels of skiers. The slopes were quiet and we never had to queue for lifts. The price for hire and lift passes is much cheaper than the more popular French ski resorts. We would recommend Melanie who delivered our home cooked dinner on a few evenings. Really lovely food made to order and very good value. Hope to return to experience beautiful rural France.

It is fully equipped, with all the kitchen, bathroom, linen and even entertainment essentials you need to make your stay very comfortable. It felt like being at home :-) We were within close distance to the French Alps - less than 2 hours drive to many of the popular ski resorts like Chamonix, the famous 3 Vallées and Megève and only an hour drive to Geneva. We were also very close to the mountains, where we could go for a beautiful hike and see the amazing views of the area from on high, or experience the snow without the crowds of the 3 Vallées. There’s a selection of supermarkets close by and other stores for any extras we needed during our stay. The owners, Stéphanie and Renaud are more than hospitable. They were ever so kind, helpful, accommodating, friendly and made our stay so much more enjoyable. We appreciated all they did for us and it was so great that they spoke fluent english for us non-French speaking tourists! We had such an incredible time and were extremely sad to bid farewell.....
