The small, but well-stocked supermarket is just steps away as is the boulangerie for fresh bread all day with the boucherie close by. The apartment was clean and tidy for our arrival, hot water was plentiful, a well-stocked kitchen for self-catering and the balcony view of the mountains is amazing. Tips for travellers : have an early lunch to get the plat de jour as it goes quickly. For travellers in September - many restaurants close for some days and evenings and some completely by the third week of September so check before. Also the Menton tourist office is closed for the season now but in Annecy town you'll find one open within the theater building. The boat tours are also not so frequent at this time so plan ahead with a timetable along with that for buses. Car hire is recommended but not essential. Drivers are courteous and most parking is FREE! Cyclists are very welcome as are walkers.

Arnaud and Nadine are there if you need them but very discrete otherwise. The apartment was perfect for our stay and is in a great location and, as has been said before, there is a great boulangerie over the road. The croissant aux amandes are delicious! Easy walk to the lake and a drive to visit Switzerland, Chamonix and other places in the area – be aware you need a vignette if you are visiting Switzerland. The stairs could be a challenge if you are less mobile and free parking is quite a walk from the apartment but other than that, we would most definitely recommend the property.
