Splendid !

4 of 5
The chalet was a good choice for us (a family of 4 adults). We were worried to make the full payment way in advance, but our worries disappeared after meeting the manager Sophie who was very helpful and supportive. The property is very well equipped and nothing was missing. We had a splendid 9 days in this wonderful place. The location is great: we had the chance to be near several attractions including a forest within a very short distance by car. Annecy is 17 Km and Geneva is not far, along with other attractions located so near. We loved it and we are willing to come back again as sin as possible. I recommend this rental without any hesitation as I am sure that it will be a memorable stay for anybody.

Beautiful house in a beautiful town

5 of 5
With an easy walk down to the beautiful lake of annecy this house is the perfect place to stay. The swimming pool and play area was perfect for The kids (We have 3 girls under 9) and the house itself is lovely. The family make sure your stay is how you like it and are keen to give you as much local advise as you need. Ideal place to stay in a lovely part of France.
