Such a lovely holiday!

5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time! To sit out in the private garden looking at the stunning views was incredible. Fell in love with it all instantly. The apartment was light and roomy and with the doors opening straight onto the garden, felt even bigger. Very well equipped, didn't need anything else. It was also very convenient, the walks to Talloires, Veyrier-du-Lac and even Annecy were delightful. Getting to la Clusaz was easy too. The amenities in Menthon St Bernard were more than adequate and the walk via the lake was lovely. We would highly recommend it.

We thought it was every thing we hoped it would be

Annecy is a very cool place to stay, We have been quite a few times in the past and the holiday this year was exception. The Chalet was every thing we hoped for and will have a special place in our hearts as we had 2 birthdays there. it was close enough to the lake to be able to walk down for a swim and the beach area is very nice with lots of amenities including a very nice Restaurant. Al in all we highly recommend a stay here. Clive K
