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.

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.

A lovely quiet apartment with beautiful views to the south east and great morning sunshine.

  • 4 of 5

Excellent hosts, very kind and most helpful.

The apartment is very spacious and has all that you need for a holiday. It is well located to explore Annecy, Massif des Bauges and surrounding areas.

The nearest town for food shopping is Faverges which is well supplied with a boulangerie, supermarket and bars.

We would certainly recommend this accommodation.

a Friendly warm welcome on a cold Alpine day

  • 4 of 5

It was a miserable rainy cold day as we finally arrived after a long trip from Paris. The owner and his wife was waiting for us with a bottle of red wine from the region placed on the table.

Our little apartment was well heated, clean and comfortably furnished just as it was advertised. The owner gave us an orientation of the facilities and we settled in before dark. The next morning we woke up to enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery. There are many well marked hiking paths in close proximity of the apartment with amazing mountain views. Lake Annecy is only a short distance away. If you are a cycling enthusiast the well marked bike paths in close proximity of the village will be a great source of enjoyment. Throughout our stay the owner and his wife was very helpful and assisted us with whatever we needed. They are well acquainted with the area and being a cyclist himself the owner is keen to share his knowledge of the region.

We had a very relaxing pleasant stay and would recommend this facility to anyone that enjoy the mountains. Just be aware that there is no bakery in the village itself and to buy bread you need to drive about 5 min to the closest bakery. This was never a problem for us as we always got the bread on our way back from our outings. The apartment is furnished to handle 5 people. We stay there with our teenage son and it was sufficient for us.

It is definitely one of the places that we would go back to. This is the best value for money for a stay in the Alps.

Perfect apartment in an amazing setting

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly recommend Ken and Manchun's ground floor apartment in their house in St Ferreol. We stayed for a lovely week with our 2 boys. Absolutely beautiful setting, perfectly positioned for exploring lake annecy and the surrounding area - we didn't want to go home! The apartment is fully equipped with everything you could need for a self catering holiday and the owners are extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommended! and we will be back.

Appartment with a VIEW

  • 4 of 5

We spend a lovely week in the appartment. Well equiped and clean and very quiet. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We felt really at home. The view into the valley and to the mountains was very nice. Lots of things to discover in the surroundings. Lake Annecy is wonderful.

One little point of interest: we should have liked better comfort on the couch and chairs. But still an apartment to recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this positive review. The point about the comfort of the sofa and chairs we have not seen before. We have already provided thicker and more comfortable cushions on the chairs and will be looking at how we can improve the sofa.
