Everything brand new and so tasteful. The managers are excellent and answered all our questions and had the chalet beautifully prepared for our stay. I would give 10 stars if I could - we had a great holiday, thank you.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Apartment location is ideal for us, right in centre of Talloires. Apartment spotless and had everything we needed. Comfortable beds, good wifi, great shower. Could not have asked for more. Personally, it is advertised as sleeps 4, although the sofa bed is comfortable, we felt you would be crowed with 4 people. Good communication with Michelle & Claude after initially not being able to pay in Sterling, but was resolved.

It is finished to such a high standard and has everything you need for an amazing week or two. The managers are very thoughtful and even left some tasty treats upon our arrival. I would highly recommend the apartment to anyone!
