Excellent house for family holiday, close to the lake with excellent pool and scenic views
The house was a great choice for our family holiday with our 2 daughters and their husbands/partners and 4 young grandchildren. The owners David and Renee live in the adjacent property and are very friendly and helpful. The house is only a short walk to the lake for launching canoes/paddle boards which could then be paddled to the public beach - which is a 10-15 minute walk away. The pool was great fun for the family and extensively used during our stay - the sliding cover meant it was warm enough to use in late May. The large patio (with sliding sun canopy) and many windows in the conservatory-style dining area facilitated enjoyment of the superb lake and mountain views. The bike path runs by the back of the house and we enjoyed riding with the children to/from the boulangerie at Doussard most mornings. We used the table tennis most evenings - an unexpected bonus. We usually cooked evening meals on the patio barbecue, after overcoming an initial problem of finding somewhere to exchange the empty gas cylinder on a Sunday. I feel sure David will make arrangements to ensure that problem is a one-off . We also enjoyed very good takeaway pizzas from Bob's Pizza which is a short drive away.
Overall, a very good, well-equipped family house in an excellent location close to the lake. We would certainly try to rebook for any future family holiday in this lovely area.
A villa of good proportions with stunning views of the mountains all around and the lake.
We were two families staying for a fortnight in this great villa. Dave and Renée were very welcoming hosts and always around to support and answer any questions. The pool was loved by our boys as was the sunroom for games, relaxing and table tennis. The setting of the house is tremendous with the sun rising over Col de la Fauclaz and then bathing the house all day and into the evening. The location is ideal for exploring any beaches and villages around the lake and backs onto the cycle path which can take you directly north to Annecy or south all the way down the valley to Albertville. Within just a few minutes walk or short cycle are beaches, numerous locations for bicycle hire and a range of cafes and bars. The sailing and general water sports centre is located nearby and there is a major parapente landing site also just a few minutes by bike to the south near the village of Doussard.
We had a terrific two weeks here and would highly recommend this home for an active family holiday beside one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.
Thank you again to David and Renée for being such great hosts.
Fab views, great pool
Three generations of one family that have holidayed at Lake Annecy before. We never tire of the area and this villa was brilliant for our needs. Plenty of room, a great pool, the bonus of table tennis to keep the men and kids out of mischief into the evening and walking distance to the most beautiful lake in the world (in our opinion)
Family home with fabulous views
Our family of ten, 4 children aged 7 yrs to 6 months, and 6 attending adults, enjoyed a wonderful week in this property. There was plenty of space for us all. The outdoor pool area is particularly good and the water was much used during a hot week. When we could drag ourselves away, we managed to visit the beautiful area by boat, chair lift and bicycle. There was far more to do but we only had a week. We hope to make a return visit.
great location with everything we needed
the house is in the perfect location very near the lake which was perfect for us. there were 8 of of and we all had a great time , the days out visiting different place were brilliant.
we even were able to hire bikes from the owners of the house and cycle in to Annecy on the cycle path that was brilliant.
we moored a Ski boat in the local marina but i would recommend you do launch and retrieve really, the marina is not helpful at all.
Dave and Renee were great they even dropped us off some fresh cherries of which were lovely. i would recommend this place as it just ticks all the boxes. A big massive thank you to our hosts Dave and Renee
Thank you for your review. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to have you as guests and we really appreciated that you looked after the house so well, leaving it so clean and tidy. Dave and Renee
Lovely position near the lake with amazing views
The villa was in a prime position with break taking views over Lake Annecy. It was a spacious villa, with a lovely conservatory overlooking the lake and a great swimming pool! The kids loved this the best, even when it rained they could still go in because of the cover.
The area was well located near the cycle path and we hired bikes from the owner, we found the cycle path safe for our children and enjoyed couple of outings around the lakeside. Nearby is a campsite and they had a free bus service to a local mountain range, we visited this and had a great day involving ourselves with activities such as the luge and air Bag! The weather was varied, but this is to be expected near the mountains. If you want an action packed holiday with amazing scenery this is the place to visit. Would definitely visit again.
It was great to meet you all and we are very pleased you enjoyed the holiday. Thank you for looking after the house so well.
