Fantastic comms from Alan ( owner) prior to arrival with everything needed for the journey down and on arriving. At the property there’s ample secure parking in basement with internal stairs to property. The property has everything we needed from the lovely balcony which gets afternoon sun to the well appointed kitchen/living space.The property on arrival has a excellent kitchen/lounge area with a wheelable table which seats 6, so can be moved around to suit, the lounge area has nice chairs and a sofa bed, small tv but adequate, cd/radio player and dvds and player as well as plenty of books and games should they be needed. Also toilet and utility room located in this area just on right of entering the front door..On moving to the master bedroom you go up and over a lovely little wood open staircase which if needed leads up to 2 further bedrooms ( 1 double and 1 bunk bed) both with storage and a velux window.We only used the master bedroom which is up and over 2 steps and again has loads of wardrobe and storage space and also has access to the balcony.The bathroom has a good shower/bath space with everything needed for us.The property was clean and tidy and all set up for our arrival with the bedding waiting for us to put on, plenty of towels as well. We used the property as a base for our cycling holiday and with very expensive road bikes there was room for ours in the property which was piece of mind however you had space outside the property’s front door which was secure or even down in basement...a dozen steps down to the main front door and your outside, it’s 5 mins cycling to the extensive Annecy to Alberville cyclepath which gives access to climbs towards Semnoz and Col de Forclaz as well as many others. Doussard has everything we needed but is a lovely quiet alpine village, it’s got a small carrefour which has everyyou need, there is a pharmacy, bakery, butchers, a few nice cafes/ bars offering meals as well as a great takeaway pizza a few minutes walk away....just on the edge of the village is the landing zone for the paragliders which is always a good watch if your not brave enough to have a go.... Alan is the perfect owner as he asked if there was special requirements needed for our stay, making sure we had everything covered for our stay, we would absolutely recommend this property and we will be back again, it’s a great space to enjoy a chilled break in a lovely property.Alan covers everything in his handover documents reassuringly
It's the second time my family have stayed . The cottage is perfect , spacious , spotless and a little gem amidst the stunning mountains .
John and Mariella are the most welcoming people who we really feel have become friends .
The area is stunning . After 12 years of visiting the Alps we always find somewhere else to explore , mainly thanks to John who knows the Alps and the best places to visit for those spectacular views .
Thank you John and Mariella for making this year so special for my family .
We'll be back !
