What an amazing location! Part of me doesn't actually want to advertise this special place but it wouldn't be fair to keep it such a secret. Booked as a surprise birthday treat for a picky seasoned traveller, a child and someone who likes downtime as much as adventure this place has it all.
Holger and his family have a fabulous place, with everything to accommodate all ages. The only wish was not being able to meet them and thank them personally in opening up their house in its beautiful surroundings. However, a big 'shout-out' to their neighbours, who made our Saturday extra special. Thank you!
Kayak the canals and lake, but not two days in a row....you will ache the next day!
Get out when it's sunny.
Don't leave rubbish/food out the front, the bears will destroy the bins ;)
Book into the restaurant early.
Great burger's and atmosphere at roundabout just before Port entrance.
Brush up on your French, you'll need it :)
Most of all, enjoy the beautiful surroundings and lovely people, because you will have to leave.
We spent the last 2 weeks of October at the farmhouse. We had breakfast nearly every morning on the patio with an amazing view of Mont Blanc. The house is very well equipped ,very clean and comfortable with plenty of plates, cutlery, cookware, towels. Lovely shower rooms. We have been once before 2 years ago and since then a hot -tub room has been added with a great view....lovely for relaxing after a day of walking.
You can have beautiful walks straight from the house, the autumn colours were fantastic but also there are so many good treks a short drive away. We enjoyed a walk to Pointe D'Ireuse from above Bellevaux and a great ridge walk to Pointe de Marcelly from Sammond.
Geneva and Annecy are also within a fairly easy drive.
If you have a dog or young children the farmhouse is perfect, no traffic and space for children/dog to free range.
There is a bakery in Onnion village (closed Wednesdays) and also one in Bellevaux and a supermarket in St Jeoire. In the past we have used the vet in St Jeoire to complete pet passport , very helpful and speaks good English
Would highly recommend the property and the area for a holiday.
