From beginning to end we were really well looked after by Gary and Esmarie - they were very friendly, easy to contact and clearly very keen to ensure that we had a great holiday in their gorgeous home. It is obviously a much loved family home and is very comfortable, clean and well appointed, with lots of personal touches to make us feel welcome. The living area is lovely, with huge windows from which you can enjoy the spectacular views. The kitchen has everything you need, is well equipped and, like the rest of the house, spotlessly clean when we arrived. The bedrooms were all much bigger than we had expected so we had lots of room and the ensuite in the master bedroom is one of the nicest bathrooms I have ever seen! Beautiful weather meant that we spent much time outdoors where, again, we could take in the views. Bluffy is a small, pretty village, in a great location for exploring the area, Annecy is only a few miles away and we also visited Geneva, Chamonix, Aix-les-Bains, La Clusaz and CERN - all within easy reach and well worth a visit. All in all we were delighted with our holiday - lovely home, stunning setting and great hosts - we were all reluctant to leave when our holiday ended and would not hesitate to recommend this house as a great place to stay.
Bluffy is a small village located above Menthon Saint-Bernard close to the medieval town of Annecy, famous for it's beautiful natural lake. Bluffy lies between the lake and the mountains in the shadow of the 'Dents de Lanfon'.
The area offers numerous activities and is any outdoor lovers dream. Cycle the many cols of the French alps where the Tour de France has passed in recent years or try the time trial circuit around the lake which passes the house. Laze around on the beaches of Europe's cleanest Lake, swim, sail or fish, whatever takes your fancy there really is something for everyone. The forests in the mountains are ideal for short walks or challenging ascents - La Tournette can be accessed from the house.
The many restaurants, bars and cafes offer plenty of convenient refuelling stops from the simple to the Michelin - 8 minutes drive away Talloires has the famous Pere Bise restaurant or in Bluffy the local Auberge can be reached without the car.
In winter there is a choice of ski resorts close by - Grand Bornand, La Clusaz and Manigod are closest offering something for all levels and all members of your family.
