The apartment was spacious, well equipped and had beautiful views, with a sunny terrace. The host, Ken and Manchun, were welcoming and friendly, with plenty of helpful information about the local area. St Ferreol is a quiet village but is perfectly located for exploring the Annecy area: the lake and the old town of Annecy are not far. If you like walking or cycling, or just want to relax in the midst of stunning scenery, then this is ideal.
