Enjoyed our recent stay in Annecy at Isabelle's apartment. The apartment was clean and the location is fantastic. There are some compromises, but the location and quality goes a long way to making up for these and I would happily recommend it.
Location couldn't be better. Straight into the old town, beautiful little streets and some fantastic options for breakfast (giant pain aux raisins!) and also for dinner as this area comes to life. Even in late September, it's evidently worth booking a table.
Space is good. It's a studio apartment in a small location but it's surprisingly spacious and well lit. I'd say it's larger than the photos suggest. The balcony is nice to sit out on.
Comfortable bed, which is probably the most important thing when on holiday!
Isabelle is a good owner. There are some things which could be better, but Isabelle was eager to help and when we had a problem having run out of hot water (small tank), she found a solution and contacted us so we could override the system.
Quite noisy - not from the street (you're well shielded from this), but from neighbouring apartments. You hear every movement from the people upstairs and other neighbours as they come into the building. Something to be aware of but not a deal breaker - it's an old building.
Limited access - we had to be very specific on our arrival time to gain access. Had to be between 2pm and 4pm, at a pre-agreed time. It suited us to arrive early, but would have been good to know this up front. Worth making contact early if you're travelling a distance. Maybe a key box solution might be good?
Cleaning - the apartment is really clean and I always leave places as tidy as I find them. That said, I was surprised that we HAD to clean the apartment (hoover, clean kitchen, clean bathroom) or be charged an additional 50 Euros. I'm happy with this model, I just think it should be positioned as part of the booking so you're not surprised.
Overall, I really enjoyed Annecy and my staying in this apartment.
Our hosts could not have been more welcoming, nor more helpful during our stay. The accommodation was absolutely comfortable, well equipped, and with a view of snow-covered mountains including Mont Blanc, from our huge window. We have no hesitation in recommending Jean-Luc and Josette as your hosts. Thankyou for a lovely stay!
