This apartment had everything you could wish for, including a dishwasher and washing machine, you could not wish for a better position, only about 5 minutes walk and you are on the edge of the beautiful lake, there are lots of walks you can do from the apartment, or if you fancy a bike ride, they have these for you to use too, you can bike to Annecy in about 30 - 40 minutes, this is well worth a visit. or why not take the boat bus, you are allowed to stop off for one stop as well as the stop off at Annecy, we got on at St Jorioz and had a look round Annecy before getting on again to visit Talloires, again a beautiful town (very expensive though) I would recommend this for any one, but especially if you are a keen cyclist or walker, you would be in heaven, a nice restaurant up the road too, called Les Tilleuls, we ate there every night, as it was lovely and quite reasonable
This year we got the train from London St Pancras International and were in Annecy in 7.5 hours with a change in Paris. We were picked up by the new manager Franck, who met us at the station We hired a car from St Jorioz Super U supermarket, which was very reasonable, then for local journeys we used bikes. We came for the cycling and spring walks in the mountains and by the lake. Franck was really friendly and this time, we found our beds ready made and a chilled bottle of wine waiting ! Linen and towels are now included. The apartment has eight bikes in all, plus a bike trailer and paniers, so we did most of our shopping by bike and only used a hire car for odd days to drive higher into the mountains. Our first outing was a cycle round the lake, via Annecy to Menthon Saint Bernard. which has a great cafe and Chateau. Next cycle trip was to Talloires, on the same side. I am not the most confident cyclist, so the cycle track which runs down the whole of the lake ( over 30Km ) was perfect. The apartment also has lots of laminated maps of local walks, including a walk up to a grotto above a nearby town Sevrier, which gave a fantastic view of the lake. The apartment came with a gas bbq, fully equipped kitchen. The wifi worked fine and we could watch netflix. I was delighted with how much care had been taken; the owners live in the flat for some of the time, so they have thought of most things. The high point for me was the spring flowers. All in all, a very relaxing stay with a friendly host.
We were very happy with the appartment. It was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We had everything we needed and were very comfortable during our stay. The wine was waiting for us in the fridge and Franck showed us everything we needed to know. We liked the location and the fact that we could walk to the water's edge. We also liked the proximity of a range of places to eat. Communications before our stay were very good. We have no complaints at all and would consider staying there again.
Just 2 minutes walk from lovely lakeside beaches, the apartment is located in a small chalet development. It's great for families, we stayed there with 4 adults and 3 children, just about enough room but we spent most of time outdoors and eat on the pleasant terrace every night. All mods cons including cycles, so lots of great places along the lake to go to along the excellent cycle paths. There's a Super U and bakery 5 minutes by bike. Highly recommended, we were sad to leave!

An easy to use lovely apartment close to the most beautiful nature. We spent our days eating outdoors in the garden, swimming in the lake and cycling as a family with the many different bikes and trailer provided. Everything here is accessible by cycling so no need to hire a car.
Perfect simple, compact, bight and clear base for an active and restful family holiday. Everything you need is in the kitchen and the furnishings are simple comfortable and tasteful.
