About the property

The view, the property and the proximity to Annecy itself is superb. The hotel was once a 'Relay Hotel' for Thespians and Actors alike. It was once the favourite hideaway of Ernst Hemmingway who would visit here for inspiration and tranquillity.

Stunning Apartment with Magnificent Views Over Lake Annecy & French Alps
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Zeer mooi en ruim appartement

  • 5 of 5

Het appartement ziet er precies zo uit als op de foto's. Alles is aanwezig, van alle gemakken voorzien.

Lekker groot balkon met mooi uitzicht op het meer van Annecy.

Het appartement ligt een beetje afgelegen, maar dat is niet erg het is er lekker rustig.

Ga je met 6 personen dan raden we wel aan om wat extra handdoeken mee te nemen, want die waren er maar 6, waardoor we iedere dag aan het wassen waren.

Echt een aanrader om te gaan doen: ga met de auto naar Chamonix en neem daar de kabelbaan naar Aguille du Midi. Het is niet goedkoop maar dit hadden we echt niet willen missen, wat een indrukwekkend uitzicht op een hoogte van 3842 meter hoogte.

Als we nog een keer terug gaan naar het meer van Annecy zullen we zeker overwegen om terug te keren naar dit appartement. Wij hebben hier een schitterende vakantie gehad.

Whether you choose to take the Dover - Calais, Hul - Zeebrugge ferries it really is a wonderful drive down through France. Alternatively you can fly into Geneva, Grenoble or Lyon and hire a car. The roads are quiet and the drive effortless.

There is everything to do here from skiing on the lake to skiing in the mountains and the apartment is close to an abundance of ski resorts such as La Clusaz, Megeve.
