Property type apartment

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom With Superb Mountain Views

Ken and Manchun welcome you to their Gite nestling on the mountainside only a short distance from Lake Annecy. With southerly panoramic views and easy access to the cycle path and mountain footpaths, you will never be short of adventures. On the other hand, if you just want to chill and take in the mountain scenery, the patio right outside your doorway gives you just that. For keen and even not so keen cyclists there are a wealth of opportunities to challenge yourself with the alpine climbs used in the Tour de France or to just saunter along the “piste cyclable” all the way along lake Annecy to Annecy itself and explore this charming old town.

Our 50m2 Gite has a bedroom with a double and single beds. The living area has a convertible sofa which is also a double so the options for a family or friends will ensure a relaxing and rewarding break. The kitchen has all the facilities you need for eating al fresco or for preparing a picnic for a day exploring the area. A separate shower and WC complete the picture.

Lovely place to spend a week

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had the wonderful week staying here. The apartment was spacious, well equipped and had beautiful views, with a sunny terrace. The host, Ken and Manchun, were welcoming and friendly, with plenty of helpful information about the local area. St Ferreol is a quiet village but is perfectly located for exploring the Annecy area: the lake and the old town of Annecy are not far. If you like walking or cycling, or just want to relax in the midst of stunning scenery, then this is ideal.

Beautiful location and welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect distance away from Lake Annecy so that it is convenient to get to the lake and shops/cafes etc when you want but that it provides peace and quiet too. It is located half was up a hill and this provides you with stunning views of the surrounding area. The gite is equipped with everything you need and is comfortable and clean. There is a large main room with a sofa that can be used as a bed, comfortable chairs and a coffee table. Located the other side of this room is the kitchen area and a large kitchen table and chairs that would comfortably seat six people. There is a full sized oven and grill which you can use either as gas or electric or both and a microwave if you prefer. Also supplied is a kettle, coffee maker, toaster, iron, full sized fridge freezer and a washing machine which is extremely helpful if you cycle. The bedroom has plenty of cupboard space and there is lots of additional bedding provided to cover all temperatures. The bathroom has a shower toilet and sink. The gite is heated with adjustable radiators and the host left the heating on and left it to us to control the individual radiators. We found this provided the perfect temperature for us.

The host Ken was happy to share his knowledge of both walking and cycling with us and was kind enough to take us on a bike ride around the lake pointing out places of interest as we went. We took up a number of his suggestions including walking up nearby Col de la Forclaz, cycling up Col de l'Arpettaz with it's numerous hairpins, and catching the train to the top of Montenvers-Mer de Glace to see the glacier located in Chamonix. There are plenty of other things to do and the local area is fascinating and beautiful. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a peaceful holiday, in beautiful countryside and particularly walkers and cyclists. Reading others reviews complaining about the lack of curtains and the church bells ringing - we would suggest using the traditional wooden shutters on the gite which block out all the light and we found the church bells to be unobtrusive and pleasing on the ear. If we return to this area of France would certainly use again.

Beautiful place, lovely people

  • 5 of 5

The gite is picturesque with beautiful views, sitting outside of an evening eating tea looking at the mountains was fantastic. The gite was comfortable and had everything you needed. Ken and his wife were more than accommodating and always happy to help with anything that we needed. Ken has a great knowledge of the local area which was very helpful for us and even joined us on a few cycles.

Would definitely recommend and stay again. It was a pleasure.
