Lovely location and home.
We loved our stay here. It was perfect for us with easy access to the cycle path and a fab bakery at the bottom of the hill. The house was spotless and we loved sitting out on a morning and evening with the mintsin views. John and Mariella were on hand had we needed them but everything was perfect so hardly saw them. We will definitely be back.
Beautiful home near Lake Annecy
We had a wonderful stay in this well-appointed, comfortable home. John and Marielle were welcoming and full of helpful information and suggestions about the area. In particular, they made reservations for a Sunday lunch and a dinner one evening at two truly lovely restaurants. We would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the Haute-Savoie region.
Paradise in the French Alps
This is the second time that my husband and I stayed in this lovely cottage with amazing views of the mountains from almost every window. It is a quiet relaxing retreat where the owners are always available and willing to answer questions and to offer suggestions of places to visit. John and Mariella have become our friends, and we look forward to renting from them again. It is indeed our home away from home.
Cosy House - Ideal for a Winter Break
This house is definitely not just for a Summer Break - with ski resorts within half an hour, this is ideal for a break any time of year. The house lacked nothing - it was warm and fitted out to an extremely high standard. The surrounding countryside is just stunning.
John and Mariella are the perfect hosts, and can only be recommended.
Charming , beautiful cosy cottage
It's the second time my family have stayed . The cottage is perfect , spacious , spotless and a little gem amidst the stunning mountains .
John and Mariella are the most welcoming people who we really feel have become friends .
The area is stunning . After 12 years of visiting the Alps we always find somewhere else to explore , mainly thanks to John who knows the Alps and the best places to visit for those spectacular views .
Thank you John and Mariella for making this year so special for my family .
We'll be back !
The property is wonderful, plenty of space for all of us including the dog and 4 bikes. Everything you need for a home from home experience. The situation of the property is ideal with cycling and walking routes literally on the doorstep. The hosts were very helpful and hopefully we shall return, maybe in the winter to explore the local ski areas. Thank you for a excellent holiday
The Holiday let is located in a quiet Hamlet surrounded by mountains. Wonderful views on the green trees on the mountains from the green garden with flowers and vegetable garden.
