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
Just what we needed!
Beautifully presented, spacious and well-equipped, in country village, with friendly owners. Location perfect for meeting up with family living nearby. Good walks and excellent boulangerie! At the time of our visit in October, sun is limited somewhat by surrounding buildings - this is the only reason for giving 4 rather than 5 stars.
lovely home away from home
We(4 Adults) stayed at John & Mariella"s lovely home for 10 days. They are wonderful hosts & we felt that we left with 2 great new friends when we headed home. John graciously accommodated us at the last minute when our previously booked place turned out to be unsatisfactory.
The house is spotlessly clean, very spacious & well equipped. The beds are comfortable & the bathroom is modern & large, with double sinks, a large Italian shower & washing machine. There is parking for one vehicle & a nice big back yard with patio furniture & loungers. The little village is quiet & within walking distance to a bakery & a couple of restaurants. Grocery stores & other shops are only a 5-10 min drive.
We are confident to highly recommend this property.
Thanks John & Mariella. Hugs to Divine & Rusty
Genütliches Haus in den Bergen
Das Ferienhaus ist hochwertig und gemütlich eingerichtet, die Küche bestens ausgestattet (sogar mit verschiedenen Kaffeemaschinen...). Sehr angenehm fanden wir auch, dass es im Wohnzimmer gleich zwei bequeme Sofas gibt. Wir hatten Glück mit dem Wetter und konnten immer im Garten essen -- mit schönem Bergblick. Komplett umzäunt, perfekt für unseren Hund. Ganz ruhiges, kleine Dorf und sehr freundliche, aufmerksame Vermieter. Man kann zu Fuß in ca. 10 Minuten zum Bäcker laufen, mit dem Auto sind es 5 Minuten bis Faverges, dort gibt's große Geschäfte, Cafés und La Table d'Olivier, bestes frz. Essen zu erschwinglichen Preisen. Marlens ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt zum Wandern oder für Ausflüge an den See. Komplett empfehlenswert.
Perfect get away
Well where do I start? I read previous reviews before booking this property & it certainly lived up to its 5 stars.
My teenage son & I, along with our 2 dogs, had the most fabulous 5 weeks here in Feb/March, so much so that I said to the owners John & Mariella, that I had mixed emotions at writing a review as I wanted to keep it a secret!
The house has everything you could want, with its cosy contemporary interior (rarely found in French lets) & its location being super for exploring the area.
We didn't tire of the local ski areas & mountain restaurants with their cheese fondues & the views across Lac Annecy whilst out dog walking.
The morning walk down to the boulangerie is a must, to have fresh croissants or baguettes to take up onto the slopes.
Mariella & John are so lovely & were so welcoming, they made us feel 'at home' straight away. They became friends & I enjoyed our time together- thank you both.
If you're looking to book here, please remember to keep some weeks free for me to return!!
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.
