|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
This charming villa has just been built (June 2014). It is situated on a little country road (one-way traffic only), in a small village called Chessenaz, between Annecy and Geneva. (The Car Show will be held at Palexpo/Geneva from 05-15 March 2015 and we are just 35 kms drive away). The ceilings of the two living floors (above the garage area) have exposed wooden beams. The inside has been tastefully furnished and the kitchen and both bathrooms are modern and fully equipped. The entrance hallway has loads of space for hanging coats and tidying shoes and boots away. A tiled stairway leads to the first floor Here, the large living room/dining area has access through wide sliding French windows onto a 7 meter long sunny balcony with a splendid view onto the tree-filled garden and the valleys and mountains surrounding the village. The lounge has a t.v. with international programmes and a d.v.d player, some books and puzzles. The kitchen area is fully-equipped with a combination microwave/oven, 12-set dishwasher, large fridge with freezer compartment, toaster, kettle and Dolce Gusto coffee maker and, of course, more than enough cutlery and crockery for 6 persons. A small closed hallway leads to the bathroom and bedroom. The bedroom has a double bed (separate mattresses) and a large wardrobe with full-length mirror, a safe for your valuables, an iron and ironing board. 2 large windows with automatised blinds make for a light and airy bedroom. There is also a make-up table and chair. The walls of the bathroom are completely tiled and the floor is wooden. There is a combination bath and spacious shower, w.c., sink, mirror and heated towel rail and a large window with frosted glass. On the second floor there is a large (almost 50 m2), light area with 2 large roof windows (Velux) and a conventional window (all windows on all floors are equipped with electric blinds with remote controls); there is a comfortable sofa bed (2 places), 2 single beds separated by screens from the rest of the area, and a child's fold-up cot is available (as is a high chair). There's lots of cupboard and wardrobe space. The shower room is beautifully tiled and also has a wooden floor. There's a w.c. and sink with large mirror and a heated towel rail. On the other side of the area, we have created a computer corner and installed a satellite for WIFI or cabled internet connection, including television with many international stations (BBC, CNN, Al Jazeera, many German and French programmes and other languages too) and free telephone access within France. One can easily be reached by phone from outside France. On the ground level there is a garage for 1 car, a laundry area with a clothes washer & tumble dryer. One can park another car in front of the garage. Our villa has been awarded a 4-star rating by the French Tourist Board (Initiative Tourisme 74). At just 35 kms from Annecy and 45 kms from Geneva, Chessenaz is ideally situated for day trips to both towns, as well as others such as Aix-les-Bains, Chambéry, Lyon on the French side, and Nyon, Lausanne and Montreux on the Swiss side. For those of you who like good French food, there are several Michelin star restaurants in the area, but there are also many local restaurants serving such typical dishes as small perch from the lake (filets de perches). Just a few steps from the villa there are many local walks and hikes up into the nearby mountain ranges. We can provide bikes and even a tandem for those willing to brave the hilly surrounds. For stays longer than one week, if you want your bed sheets and towels changed, there will be an additional weekly cost of €30. If you want additional cleaning, this is €15 an hour.
We came back to this region and moved into this village 8 years ago, after living abroad for many years.
Christine Grandjean purchased this house in 2014
We were looking for peace and quiet but at the same time wanted easy access to Annecy and to Geneva. We built the villa for rental about 30 meters so that we may host family, friends and guests who wish to discover the region. We are, of course, on hand for any additional needs or advice.
It is so calm here, we are often woken up by early birdsong. And yet, we are not far from large towns where we can shop, go to the cinema, museums, restaurants and so on. There are lots of nature walks and many historical sites to visit. For those who like water sports, there is Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), Annecy Lake, Bourget Lake and Nantua Lake. For car lovers, the Annual Car Show will be held at Palexpo/Geneva from 05-15 March 2015 - we are just 35 kms away.
There are so many places to visit and things to do! For example, the Chateau de Clermont (where they hold jazz concerts during the summer months), Annecy old town, Fort l'Ecluse. And Geneva, Aix-les-Bains, Chambéry are all easily accessible for day trips.
