The only drawback for us was the difficulty finding a carpark in the evenings for our rental car - eventually we did but it took some perseverance. Great communication from Valerie who made our arrival easy.

Studio is well equipped, kitchen has all mod cons from fridge, hob, micro, dishwasher, washing machine to kettle , toaster, coffee maker and pretty crockery and glasses. Even champagne flutes which was a plus as it was my birthday during my stay. Living area is spacious , bed very comfortable and flat screen tv if you can tear yourself away from the cute balcony overlooking a glorious garden. Everything and everywhere in the studio is spotless. Big plus is thick walls of this old building lead to the studio being cool. Out the door and you are in the thick of things. Old medieval streets, great restaurants and bars and an excellent market . Take a short walk and you arrive at the lake with gorgeous gardens where you can walk , jog or cycle. Plenty of water based entertainment too. This studio is an amazing oasis in the medieval centre of annecy and not to be missed. We almost feel like keeping it a secret so it will be available for our return later in the year.
