It is 20 minutes by car or you can take the town buses that will transport your equipment. Le Grand Bornand, Chinaillon and La Clusaz are 30 minutes.

The town coaches a few metres from the apartment offer several departures during the day and take you to La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand.
And the beaches: 1 is paying (inflatable castles, small cars circuits, pools for very young children, classical beach equipment and snack) and 1 is free (picture) with sandy beach, lawn and large trees. Both are supervised during the high season and very close to the apartment as well as the stunning Parc Besson with its games and aviary.
If you want to visit other towns: by car, the motorways are very easily and quickly accessible from the apartment: Geneva 40 km, Chamonix 90 km Lyon 120 km, Aix-les-Bains thermal Spa 30 km and Chambéry 50 km.
Without car: coaches and trains (with several departures during the day) will take you to all these towns. Shuttles (several each day) link Annecy to the airports of Lyon-Saint-Exupéry and Geneva.
Whether you want to mix the pleasure of the beach and water sports with town visits and many mountain hikes, the location of the apartment is ideal as mentioned by our guests. It is a few metres away from the 2 beaches and the old town is accessible on foot along the stunning lake promenade (with its parks). You can go skiing using the town buses instead of your car.
You will enjoy a beautiful very well fitted apartment for the price of a hotel room. It is recommended not to smoke inside the apartment (on the balcony). Information for our regular guests: the building is even closer to the lake since the town has created a pedestrian exit on the lake as an extension of Rue Montaigne. For even better comfort and aesthetic look: Samsung LED 3D television with home cinema and 3D Blu-ray, ventilated refrigerator-freezer (more pleasant when you are staying from 2 to 3 weeks), we changed the plumbing of the bathroom and the kitchen for more modernism, we renovated the large bath, we changed the toilet with antibacterial automatic lid and we installed new net curtains (it does not appear yet on the pictures on the website).
And above all, no traffic problems for leisure activities and visits: everything is easy, close or accessible on foot. You avoid the traffic during summer to visit Annecy, its old town and its town centre from the surrounding villages.
New rating: 3 stars NN. This furnished apartment can be rated 4 stars if we rent it to 2 people. An extra bedroom is required for 4 people in Annecy despite the comfort of the leather sofa-bed.
This obligation of the new rating has been deferred so currently new and old less restrictive regulations are mixed. Only the letters “NN” make them different. As for the comfort of the apartment, do not confuse the stars of the tourist furnished accommodations with the stars of the tourist residences (the latter needs a pool, whatever the size, to receive an extra star).
Rue Montaigne has a pedestrian extension up to the lake which places the building 20 m from the lake and its promenade to reach to old town and the town centre. Forget your car.
Week-end of March: Venetian Carnival (do not miss it)
30th Italian Cinema Festival of Annecy
The Snowboard Festival (films projection and space with the new equipment) is inspired from the Cannes Festival.
Retired senior executives and hiking lovers
