An amazing apartment with a view and gorgeous surroundings!

5 of 5
This wonderful apartment was an absolute delight to stay in. 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.....

Comfortable stylish and well equipped apartment

5 of 5
This apartment is a real gem. It is in a quiet village about 10 minutes from the shores of Lake Annecy. The interior is stylish, featuring stone timber and unique metal detailing. The owner Celine greeted us with a bottle of excellent local wine. The apartment comprises: a dining kitchen which is very well equipped including compact dishwasher and washing machine. Living room wiith sofa and large tv, with an alcove double bed. The bed is a little awkward to use being in an alcove with no space either side. Storage is also at a premium in the small space available, but neither caused us a problem. Compact ensuite shower room. As it is on the ground floor, there is a nice semi private sitting out area with a view of the mountain.

Very sorry to leave

5 of 5
Although the temperatures were quite high and we saw more rain than snow, we had a super week in this very comfortable house. For fanatical skiers this area is obviously not challenging enough; but for more recreational skiers it was perfect! Gentle slopes, very affordable rates, beautiful panorama's from the top of the chairlift over the Alps, and besides that also lots of winter walking possibilies: all in all we were very sorry we had to leave. After an active day outdoors it was lovely to come 'home' again in this house with its more Scandinavian than French ambiance. We hope to return in the nearby future, as there are so many more walking trails we'd like to explore. And because the scenery must be stunning in other seasons as well! We would like to thank Ian and Katie for the very pleasant and prompt contacts, and the good information they provided. Kind regards, Robin and Monique Bowman
