A happy and pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

As a couple we had an enjoyable stay. We would like to come back to the area. The location of the house is good if you are looking for a quiet hamlet stay. If town shops are what you want this may disappoint you. The whole area around Lac du Bouget is stunning. iIf you want access to quieter beaches than Aix les Bains, then Conjux just 15 minutes away is good with safe, clear and supervised swimming for kids (and adults). The house was immaculate and well presented. Jim and Rose were very helpful and willing to provide practical information. Excellent and spectacular sites (and sights) such as the Dent du Chat and Mont Revard not to far away. Good walking area too. Three lakes within the area. Lac du Bouget (the best,,) Annecy (way to busy and crowded) and Lac du lit du Rio near Belley.

summer break

  • 5 of 5

The property over all was superb and the surrounding area was beautiful.

The owners were very helpful and could not have done more to make our stay more relaxing.

A few things to note and do not let these put you off in any way they are just observations, when reading the Home and away website ad, it looks like the property has a microwave and an oven because of the columns. It is a microwave oven, This may limit some cooking options and was something I did not spot.

Also the ad says towels provided, we did get an email before travel to say they would not be provided, but it was a consideration when booking, as space is a big issue when there are 5 in a car.

Also a big consideration was internet with 3 teenageers, there is internet but it is very very slow.

We would definitely return and would recommend it to friends and family.

Amazing Christmas stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Christmas at this property and it was one of our best Christmas break we had. This house have a lovely character and located in a quiet location surrounded by the forest and mountains.

Property is close to a Chambery city where is lots to do(places to visit and nice charming restaurants to eat) and it's only 30 min drive to a ski resort, which is nice for a families with a small children.

Over all I would like to say big Thank you for Jim and his wife for helping us through our stay, even know that it was a Christmas.

Definitely will come back and highly recommended for others.

Sehr schön eingerichtet, gemütlich und sehr sauber.

  • 5 of 5

Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Die Gegend ist sehr vielseitig mit Bergen, Seen, schönen Städtchen. Das Haus ist gut gelegen und der See ca in 10 min zu erreichen. Einziger Nachteil ist, dass der Garten nicht blickgeschützt ist. Wir haben mit unserem 4jährigen Sohn eine tolle Woche verbracht und können uns gut vorstellen mal wieder bei Rose und Jim Urlaub zu machen.

Hébergement au calme en altitude

  • 4 of 5

Bâtisse ancienne rénovée avec goût et qui offre 3 chambres avec les commodités nécessaires pour passer un bon séjour.

Gisèle et Jim nous ont accueilli chaleureusement et nous ont indiqué des sites sympathiques à visiter. Abbaye de Hautecombe, Chanaz et son marché des poitiers en juillet ainsi que la plage de conjux, familiale et peu connue ...

La région offre beaucoup de possibilités avec la frontière suisse et Turin à 250 km.

Bref, nous avons découvert et apprécié une région et recommandons ce logement, qui peut cependant être amélioré au niveau literie mais les hôtes sont tellement sympathiques!!!

Owner's Response: Bonjour Phavy Merci beaucoup pour vos gentils commentaires. Nous sommes contents que vous ayez passé un bon séjour et nous serions heureux de vous revoir. Vous étiez des clients parfaits et aviez laissé la maison très propre et bien rangée. Les matelas sont fermes, nous les avons achetés neufs l'année dernière donc nous ne pouvons pas les changer tout de suite mais nous cherchons à acheter des surmatelas doux pour que les clients aient le choix.
