About Yvonne Van-Hien

Villa Anne marie was purchased from madame Anne Marie pianasani by Carl and Yvonne as a derelict house in 2002, we are only the 2nd owners of this lovely property and have loving renovated the building into 2 stunning apartments ,we ourselves love the house and its surrounds and enjoy sharing it with our visitors,we live in the French alps with our two teenage daughters and jack russel, scooby .We have been in France for 20 yrs

Yvonne Van-Hien purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Yvonne Van-Hien chose Doussard

the apartments are very spacious, well equipped and designed as homes not just rental apartments, we have kept many original features of the house, including things like framed magazines which were found in the building from 1911, I think the love put into the renovation makes it a special place to stay!

What makes this apartment unique

the proximity to the lake and cycle path , stunning views space and freedom of the house offers our guests a very enjoyable holiday,

Canadian canoe is available for guests use too, the port of bout du lac and the village summer markets make this a great place to stay.

The ferry boat that tours the lake stops very close by too.

Very, very pleasant appartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the lovely and spacious loft appartment. It is very well quipped and we enjoyed our dinners at the balcony. Having the lake within walking distance made it possible to go for several swims during the day. The traffic noise from the road was a bit loud, but it would not prevent us from coming back!

Amazing location, beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay in Villa Anne-Marie! All the mod cons you could need & in the perfect location! Just a stones throw from Lake Anncey - beautiful! From the moment we booked it, Yvonne was super helpful and friendly - thank you for all your recommendations and advice! Will definitely be booking again - see you next year!

Best kept secret

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Villa Anne-Marie and the surrounding area. We were overwhelmed with the beautiful scenery – it has to be seen to be believed. The Loft Apartment was fantastic and exceeded our expectations - nothing had been forgotten, which made our stay perfect. We cannot recommend both the area and Villa Anne-Marie highly enough; indeed, it is very tempting to be selfish and make this our best kept secret. One word easily sums up our holiday: idyllic.

Villa -Anne -Marie is located in Bout du Lac(end of the lake) 20km from the town centre of Annecy with all its

interesting shops medieval streets and bustling markets. Often called the Venice of the alps as the waterways meander through many of the old streets. There are lots of places of interest , like the old chateau, museums and galleries. The town is very close to the lake and surrounded by lovely green parks, swimming areas and places to hire all kinds of boats, take a lovely tour on one of the trips or simply relax and take in the stunning views.

Bout de lac has a lovely port, tennis courts, cycle hire and lots more, an ideal base to explore the beautiful surrounds within easy reach of all local amentities and with lots going on in the small villages around, summer markets, concerts and village fetes just a few of them. The lake has lovely swimming and sun bathing areas

with life guard facilites.

There are also several restaurants and cafes close by.
