Lovely family home in a perfect location in the middle of the peaceful, historic village of Giez

5 of 5
Just back from two weeks stay at the property and I can't sing it praises enough....the house was perfect for us (two adults and three teen children) the kids monopolised upstairs (two bedrooms and lounge) and my wife and I downstairs with our own bedroom and en-suite. Living "areas" outside were spot on too...the garden is not directly overlooked and perfect for a bit of a chill out and eating outside (we BBQ'd every night). The cycle trail is about 1 km away and local shops etc a 10 minute drive. Being in the centre of the village was very colloquial but also peaceful....the cows commute through the village every day and are close enough at night for the bells to usher you to sleep. Well equipped with all you need (including WIFI, bikes and locks, golf clubs).....REALLY REALLY recommended ..... thank-you the Dent Family/

Lovely place to spend a week

5 of 5
My partner and I had the wonderful week staying here. 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.
