The garden is also great and a good size. Fabulous views of the mountains and mesmerizing with a BBQ and a bottle of red (or two). The location was excellent for us. Very peaceful at night (except for our kids sometimes). Easy access to Annecy about 13 miles away, Chamonix 45 mins, and Sambuy 20 minutes. There is a boulangerie 10 minutes walk away which is lovely to walk to in the morning for croissants and other pastries. John and Mariella are great. They are friendly, helpful and give great advice of where to go. They greeted us on arrival with a pot of tea and juice for the children, a nice touch and just what i needed after a long drive from the North of England. Would i recommend this property? Without question, yes, absolutely.

What we got was a lovely chalet, obviously run by a family who loves it, well taken care of, even included wifi for the kids! Has some lovely views of the surrounding mountains, and there are pictures inside of how it looks in the winter, which was nice to see as we were there in mid summer! Close enough to the local towns and major destinations without being too busy or too quiet, its an ideally placed location for doing a lot of things. Luckily its also quiet enough to just sit on the veranda for enjoying a coffee and the beautiful view. Excellent for star gazing if you get clear skies. Nearby places we visited were Lake Annecy, Geneva, Chamonix and Mont Blanc. Would love to return at some point.

It has all the facilities you need, its in a great location about 25 mins drive to Annecy. Great views all around, walking on the doorstep and the cycling is fantastic. There is a steep climb from the main road which is interesting after a long bike ride but it all adds to the fun of being on a mountainside. It's stunning really, and the chalet is very comfortable, beds, kitchen facilities, BBQ etc. All good in our view. Very relaxing place to stay. Friendly welcome too from Herve. Our best holiday in France after 20 years visiting.
