Near beautiful Lake Annecy, this sunny 'maison bourgeoise annecienne' (a traditional 1920s style country house) is a treat all year round. In winter you're spoilt with excellent, typically Savoyard family ski resorts (La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand) nearby and Chamonix Mont Blanc or chic Megève an hour away. In summer, swim in pure lake waters, hike or cycle: this is an area of outstanding natural beauty, its colours glorious in spring and autumn. Watch horses grazing and sunsets over Annecy, with panoramic alpine vistas, through huge windows in the lounge-dining room. An archway leads to the well-equipped kitchen, where you'll be able to prepare delicious Savoyard specialities with the fresh local ingredients. Up the old oak staircase find stylish family bedrooms; the master with a great arched window for the views! Both have double and single beds, just ask if you need us to add a cot as well. Downstairs, there's a garden-facing double/twin, with WC opposite, ideal for older relatives and you'll find further sleeping options on double sofa beds in the lounge and on the lower ground floor.
The feel is comfortable, spacious and homely, with good beds, crisp linen, attractive rustic and hand painted furniture. Outside a winding pathway leads to a dining terrace and barbecue in a gorgeous three level garden, then up to an enchanting woodland aperitif spot, with babbling brook below. Perfect for lazing in a deckchair or hammock!
In summer, after a day out enjoying some of the multitude of activities this exceptional location has to offer, there is nothing better than to relax in the large secluded, leafy gardens, or to sip an aperitif with a mountain panorama and Annecy twinkling in the background, before dining 'al fresco' on the rear terrace.
La Maison de Proméry has received a four star rating from the Haute-Savoie tourist board and been inspected and recommended as a 'special place to stay' in Annecy by the UK guide Alastair Sawday. Sue, the British owner, will go out of her way to make your stay as enjoyable as possible and to share local knowledge on the best walks, beaches, restaurants, sights and events.
