Luxury family house 'de charme' in the resort village of Talloires, lake Annecy

Bedrooms 5
Separate WC's1
Space 25,000 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

5 1/2 Bedrooms + 2 living rooms + terrace, 2 full Bathrooms+1 shower,(Sleeps 12)

- 'Family house de charme' :3 mn walk from the lake, beach and mountain hike trails; 3 mn walk from the village center (shops and restaurants)

- You will enjoy breakfast in the sun in the garden, lunch in the shade of beautiful huge trees along the cool river, diner on the large and protected terrace with a beautiful view on the lake.

- Your days and nights will profit from the calmness of the area. You will be able to reach most activities safely walking on streets with very limited traffic.

- You will be renting the house of a family of 5 who loves quality of relationships, the charm of houses with roots and the practice of sports: Conviviality, cocooning, simplicity, easy connections have been the spirit of the remodeling of the house. (The house was initially a 18th century farm; In 1910, a luxury lake villa was added; We modernized the house in 2003)

Ideal to rest and for outdoors activities: The village is a summer vacation resort with a supermarket, numerous restaurants and hotels, some antique, art and specialty stores. A very quiet area, built in the XIIth century around an Abbaye, on the lake in a protected bay. Great for a rewarding rest.

It is also a paradise for people who love outside activities. Within a radius of 1 to 5 miles you find an incredible array of activities either linked to nearby mountains (hiking, canyoning, rock-climbing, paragliding, biking) or to the lake (beach activities, swimming, water skiing, sailing, tennis). Two golfs, one in Talloires, one in Giez are 15mn drive away.

A tradition is to bike around the lake - 41 km . (2/3 of the tour is presently equipped with a cycling trail).

An interesting area for tourism and shopping : - Annecy is a beautiful town (the Venice of the Alpes with an interesting old town and castle). Easy to access by car, bus or boat service.

- Geneva, Switzerland with its international and luxury shopping streets, watch and art museum is one hour highway car drive.

- The stupendous Chamonix nestled under the MontBlanc, with its fantastic views, gondola rides, beautiful hikes is also one hour highway drive away.

The pleasures of a French Alps country house: We are a family from the area and in love with its Alpine culture. We have remolded the house for our own pleasure in the most convivial setting possible to allow happiness, rest and fun.

Gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay! The house and location are so beautifully situated near Lac Annecy, just a few minutes walk to the water. The small town of Talloires is enchanting. Bruno was extremely pleasant and most accommodating, assuring our stay was perfect. The house is comfortably furnished and spacious, easily sleeping our party of 7, with room to spare. The garden is beautiful and private, allowing for family meals outside or leisurely swinging in the hammock. The kitchen is well stocked with essentials and a small market is located within a few minutes walk. The views from the house are breathtaking and I found myself enjoying them for hours, wanting to soak them in and take them home with me! If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend allowing Nina to cook for you. Her food is outstanding and she couldn't be more lovely. We enjoyed our stay so much, we found ourselves not wanting to leave the house. Thank you Bruno and Nina for your hospitality. We hope to visit again someday!

Mon meilleur week-end de l'année 2017 !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 jours dans cette magnifique maison. Elle est superbe, confortable, très grande avec un beau jardin, décorée avec goût. Tout fonctionne bien (électroménager, wifi), on s'est vraiment senti chez nous pendant notre séjour. L'emplacement est idéal à 5 minutes à pied du lac. On a même pu utiliser le kayak sur le lac. Talloires est un beau village avec les commerces à proximité (boulangerie élue meilleur sandwich 2016 + superette) et il y a une plage adaptée pour les familles (pelouse, plongeoir, ponton, terrain jeux, snack bar...). Enfin nous sommes à 15 minutes du col de la Forclaz (parapente, rando, vélo) et à 30 minutes d'Annecy donc emplacement idéal. Non seulement je recommande, mais surtout j'ai très envie de repartir là-bas !!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Bruno's house is amazing!

I visited the house in mid May with 7 friends to celebrate a 30th birthday. From the moment we arrived, we knew that we would have a great stay. The house is warm and welcoming and outfitted with whatever we needed. Despite some rain during our stay, we were comfortable spending time inside. Talloirs is small but offers a grocery store, bakery, cafe, and numerous outdoor activities.

Would absolutely come back to spend time here again!!

Just what we were looking for in a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a wonderful stay here. Plenty of space, charming house, well located for the lake. We were four couples, each with a toddler. They loved running in the garden and going down to the lake. Bruno was a great host and arranged extra high chairs and cots, as well as making good local recommendations. Lovely holiday.

We rented Bruno's lovely home in August as a base for our extended family to have not just a holiday but also to attend our daughter's wedding ceremony on the middle Saturday.

Our daughter has lived in the Haute Savoie region for a few years now and we have visited her many times and enjoyed the stunning mountain scenery. However, nothing prepared us for the spectacular views from the house in Talloires. It was mesmerising to be able to see not only the mountains but also the lake.

As for Bruno's beautiful home, what can I say. Fabulous does not do it justice and doesn't convey the homely, comfortable, welcoming atmosphere of this wonderful house. It accommodated us all with ease but Bruno also enabled our daughter and her bridesmaids to spend the night before the wedding with us by providing extra mattresses. His kindness was much appreciated. The photographs of the wedding morning preparations at the house are stunning, particularly our daughter, in her wedding dress, descending the staircase to her assembled family!

An unforgettable holiday with memories that we will all treasure forever.

Beautiful property in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

It was our first time to Talloires and Lake Annecy, but safe to say we were blown away with it all. The property is fantastic and compliments the beautiful location, with huge amounts of space which was more than adequate for our large family. The large terrace and balcony provide stunning views of both lake and surrounding mountains and provide a great space for meals or just relaxing. The location is also ideal, with just a 2 minute walk to local shops, or down to the lake front where you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake. Bruno was also a fantastic host, ensuring that everything was as good as could be and all our needs were met. Overall our trip was fantastic and I cannot fault it in any way, we certainly hope to be back soon!
