A beautifully kept 17th Century home

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by our hosts Nicole and Jacques Dufour, they showed us around the house garden and swimming pool. They willingly moved beds to accommodate our grandchildren. We were shown the security installation. A wonderful selection of food was awaiting us , which we enjoyed over a number of days.

There are plenty of games for children of all ages and reading books for all levels of French language speakers, as well as a TV, which accesses Google.

There are many local and more distant excursions, but equally one can just spend an enjoyable time reading by the pool.

I and my family would thoroughly recommend this this lovely home for a holiday

A wondeful stay in an authentic and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We (two families with four young children) stayed in Nicole's and Jacques' house for two weeks and that was one of our best ever trips. The house is spacious and comfortable and has everything a family might need while retaining great character and many authentic features. The outside area is fantastic with beautiful trees and a fruit garden and magnificent views. For kids, there is a pool and a set of swings. We found plenty of opportunities for exploration around the village, with great beaches on the lake, a footpath leading up to Croix to Nivolet starting almost from the doorstep. One can also drive up to Le Revard (a viewpoint with great vistas of the lake and tne mountains) in 40 minutes. Annecy or Chambery are both about hallf an hour drive from Mery. Overall we found that the area provides plenty of attractions and the weather was good, with some really hot days and some in low to mid twenties.

Last but not least, Nicole and Jacques were great hosts, friendly and punctual. We really enjoyed our trip and hope to be back some day.

Great location, lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful week in this wonderful property that is full of character.

Mery is a great location for a family holiday, the village is well kept and quiet but has easy access to shops and the recreation facilities on the lake only ten minutes away.

There are stunning mountain and valley views from the house which is set in extensive, private grounds.

The exterior of the property is not pristine ( but this adds to its charm) however the interior is spacious, stylish and modern: the kitchen is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need!

We enjoyed visiting Mery and staying in this home and would definitely recommend it for a family holiday.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

This home could not have been more perfect for our family vacation. Our host, Nicole, greeted us and walked us through all the details of the house and surrounding garden. It is a combination of old Fench country and modern. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Entire house was very clean, very comfortable beds. The small town is lovely and there are many places to hike if you wish. Or you can just relax at the pool. We were so pleased to have found this place and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet stay in a beautiful home in the mountains.
