Family friendly

  • 4 of 5

A family of five had a wonderful vacation in Menthos / Annecy. The house is well equipped for family. The beds are a bit to small. We could walk to the beach (10 min), supermarket and restaurants. The owners were very helpful.

Maison idéale famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour avec nos trois enfants (4,7,9 ans). La maison est impécable, sécuritaire et sa localisation est idéale pour les ballades en montagne, la plage et tous les services.

La vue sur les montagnes, le lac et le château est impressionnante.

Alexandre et sa maman qui s'occupent de la location sont tous les deux vraiment très gentils, retournent rapidement les courriels/appels et tout se déroule exactement comme prévu.

Bonnes vacances!

Spectacular views

  • 3 of 5

Excellent location with beautiful views 180 degrees. Very convenient and within walking distance to the town below, and an easy drive to Annecy and all around the lake. Inside is a little dated and needs new bedding, including mattresses and pillows -- all very lumpy. (Once these are replaced, will give 4 stars.) Nice laundry room in the basement. Lovely, very sweet owner.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your rather positive return altogether. We had still had no remark about the bedding even if we planned to change it soon. It is a pity we are had time to speak about it. For a next time with us wish it a bigger satisfaction from you.

Lovely vacation in Menthon

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 wonderful days at this chalet in Menthon. It was great to be able to walk into town for coffee/bread in the morning, walk to the lake and the views are amazing. Even with the heat wave, we stayed quite cool in the downstairs bedrooms. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive return! It is true that it made very good weather and warmth during your stay; I hope that you took advantage of the lake to cool! I also hope that you were able to find certain memories of pasts because you already knew the region. I hope for a next time, Kind regards, Alexandre Moine

Beautiful cottage & location, perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

We've just spent an unforgettable week here with our kids (aged 3 and 9). The cottage is beautiful - it's clean and comfortable, the views from the balcony and the rooms are incredible, and the garden is huge.The location is perfect - a scenic 5-minute walk to the village, ten minutes to the lakeside and a ten-minute drive to Annecy. We found lots of family-friendly things to do - beaches, walking around stunning Annecy, gondola rides and walks in the mountains, bike hire on the lake shore... and there's lots of amenities and fantastic (reasonably priced) restaurants nearby. 100% recommended!

Nous avons beaucoup aimé !

  • 5 of 5

La dame qui nous a accueillie est charmante ! La maison est calme, chaleureuse, dans un très joli quartier résidentiel qui surplombe Menthon. La pièce de séjour est très "cosy", avec une vue superbe sur le château (féérique le soir quand il est illuminé !). Un grand balcon offre quant à lui une vue dégagée sur les montagnes et le lac : La lumière est très belle dans cette pièce, particulièrement au coucher du soleil. Les chambres sont simples et confortables, les literies très correctes ! Pour rebondir sur d'autres commentaires laissés avant nous, oui, la déco est assez simple et un peu "vintage" mais personnellement nous préférons cela à un intérieur trop luxueux qui ferait augmenter un peu inutilement le prix de la location... Du moment que la maison est propre, confortable et accueillante, c'est parfait pour les vacances :) Plusieurs meubles anciens sont très beaux, et participent à l'ambiance chaleureuse de la maison.

Deux des chambres sont au "sous-sol" (rien à voir cependant avec un garage vaguement aménagé, ce sont deux vraies belles chambres, dont une avec une porte-fenêtre donnant sur le jardin !) et nous les avons trouvé particulièrement fraîches en cette semaine de canicule (très agréable pour la sieste ;))

4 chambres doubles, un grand séjour disposant d'un canapé 8 places, un WC indépendant, 2 salles de bain, une petite cuisine, sans compter un grand sous-sol (les petites y ont joué une après-midi de pluie) que rêver de mieux pour les vacances? Le tout à environ une dizaine de min du coeur du village à pied, en passant par de ravissants petits chemins "buissonniers" loin de la route principale et des voitures (centre-ville à 3 min en voiture). Le lac est à peine plus loin (environ 5 min en voiture, je n'ai pas calculé à pied) et il est très agréable de pouvoir, en revenant, garer le véhicule juste dans devant le chalet, sans avoir à chercher de place ! Personnellement, nous avons profité des baignades tous les jours, matin et soir... A noter aussi qu'en partant à pied du chalet s'offrent diverses ravissantes promenades, avec peu ou pas de voitures et une vue imprenable.

Pour les personnes qui ne connaissent pas encore Menthon, profitez des pontons situés devant le Palace, c'est un endroit charmant et moins surpeuplé que la plage payante. N'oubliez pas non plus de vous promener dans la forêt du Roc de Chère, c'est féerique !

Voilà, merci encore à Mr Moine et à sa maman pour ce beau séjour. Nous espérons y revenir...
