Cycling Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Claude & Michelle,

This beautiful home was the perfect location for our week stay in Annecy. The layout of the home and all it's amenities were perfect for our large group. Unfortunately, the cool weather prevented us from fully enjoying the lake but we spent the chilly evening watching a few sunsets! We also managed to take a three hour pontoon boat cruise around the lake, meeting our captain at the Ma Chez dock close by. Our cycling experience, starting with the bikes from BaseCamp, was spectacular! The rides into the Alps or circling the lake or taking the bike trail, right across the street offered something for everyone in our group. Thank you for your list of cycling shops for forgotten items and warmer gear. You guys were so thorough with all house and area info, things to do, and restaurants. We experienced many good ones but the best was the chef who was able to come at the last minute and prepare a delicious dinner for twelve. In Annecy we enjoyed the market and shopping...such a quaint city. We all agreed this area deserves another trip! Hiking, cycling, the lake, so many sporting activities... Thank you both for helping make this a memorable time! Hopefully, we will see you again soon!

Owner's Response: Dear Debbe, It was a real pleasure welcoming you and your guests at The LakeHouse. Thank you for your very kind comments. Indeed the weather was not at its best but let's hope that you'll come back to explore the area when at its best another time! All the best to you all and looking forward to seeing you again in future. Claude & Michelle

Stunning property and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas and New Year with a large group of family and friends at the Lakehouse. The property is perfect, the open plan layout is great for a larger group, and the separate TV room and additional smaller living room make it possible to get some quiet time if needed. The bathrooms are modern, and the girls all commented on the super soft bed linen! The Agents Claude and Michelle were extremely supportive right from the start, and ensured all questions were answered, the Christmas Turkey ordered, and even put up a Christmas tree for us. The nearby skiing resort La Clusaz is great, and suitable for beginners as well as experienced skiers'. We are definitely looking forward to coming back.

Lakehouse is a modern waterfront house on beautiful Lake Annecy, sleeping 14 / 16. Its location is ideal for outdoors sports and adventures: you can waterski, wakeboard, stand up board, sail, fish, kayak, paraglide, golf, cycle, swim and much more within a few hundred meters of our front door! Superb restaurants of all grades are available nearby and shops and city life is only about 15kms away where Annecy town, an ancient and beautiful town with canals, sits on the lake.

Geneva and its lake is within 1 hour and Mont Blanc approx 1h30. You can fly into Geneva and commute to the lake by car, taxi, train, and bus shuttles.

The lake is said to be the cleanest in Europe and Winston Churchill was besotted with it and the elegant village of Talloires, about 10 mins from us.

Cycling is a local obsession, with a cycling track that goes to Annecy just across from us. If you are looking to find a spot that has something for everyone, this is it! We can arrange massages inhouse, advise shopping areas, restaurants or organise a private chef.

Golf: GOLF

Majestic lakeside and mountain views. The gamut of types of courses is all the more outstanding in that they are located close to Lake Geneva, Annecy and Bourget. Combine your stay with town visits, spas or evening at the Casinos. See the list below.
