About Michelle and Claude
We lived in Annecy for 8 years but are now back in Bath, UK. We now have Michelle and Claude looking after our property for us . Bath is a great place to live but we miss Annecy very much and, apart from good friends, the opportunity to be out cycling on those amazingly quiet mountain roads and then being rewarded with a spectacular view once at the top! The kids miss the skiing and swimming in the lake. We look forward to participating in the next Etape du Tour which is close by in the Aravis mountains Megeve to Morzine.
Michelle and Claude purchased this House in 2006

Great for a weeks paddleboarding on the lake
What a great place and love the pool. We had a fab time. My daughter and I went for a weeks paddleboarding and canoeing on the lake, which is two minutes from the house. The place was spotless and well equipped. We barbecued almost every evening looking at the views of the mountains and paragliders floating by. Will be going back next summer!!!
We are so glad you enjoyed this great location and house!
Great property, fantastic location
Loved the well equipped house and the outside space. The kids enjoyed the pool and the BBQ was put to good use. Having use of a large garage was great both for storing my bike and for keeping the car out of the sun.
The property is a convenient distance from the lake which has a wide variety of water activities. The location is also great for cycling with a cycle path around most of the lake shore and many opportunities for routes into the mountains right on the doorstep. It's also a fantastic base for hiking and I enjoyed the climb to the top of La Tournette located right behind the house.
Well located good property with good amenities
We really enjoyed our stay. Amazing location and great property for families. The lake was brilliant.
Perfect cycling and swimming location
We were a group of 9 cyclists and it was the perfect location for our mixed group. Some of the group took on the nearby mountain climbs while others were happy with the relatively flat 25 mile cycle ride around the lake. There are plenty of different routes to do but a favourite was the Col de la Forclaz. Beautiful views and a nice little restaurant at the top. The lake looked gorgeous but probably a little cold for swimming in May! Would definitely like to visit again either with cycling friends again or with the family in middle of summer. Thanks again.
Well equipped house in perfect location.
Perfect family holiday in a lovely house which was well equipped with everything that we needed for a home away from home. Would definitely stay again! Thank you
Thankyou for your response , its a lovely house and location !
verthier/annecy cycling holiday
We had a perfect cycling hiking holiday at this lovely home. Michelle the caretaker was helpful and efficient and gave us the right amount of attention. The home was everything we wanted: clean, roomy, quiet, safe, secure parking and nice views.
We cooked in the house and used the BBQ grill a lot, and had relaxing dinners on the outdoor table while we watched parapents glide by.
We would stay at this or similar properties again from this management group.
We are very happy you enjoyed this lovely property in its perfect location by the lake with great access to all the cycling nearby!
