“A perfect rustic hideaway”
Reviewed 24 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We found Maison Menthon perfect for our holiday. It was quiet and spacious (it was just the two of us though) and a lovely walk to get our coffee and croissants in the village.
The decking was great for enjoying long lunches, and drinks before heading to the lake for dinner.
We thoroughly relaxed the whole trip, and would definitely return in a heartbeat.

“Great location - excellent cottage”
Reviewed 28 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Booked via holidaylettings, the description was very accurate. The communication with the owner was excellent, he was always attentive and responsive to all my messages. We had an issue with the internet, nothing to do with the owner, the wireless router bombed out, so we did not have internet, he was always attentive to this. The location was great. Parking was tight but was OK, there was always a place to park. The cottage was very nice, well cleaned, organized and had all the basic stuff we needed, the rooms were spacious and the living room was amazing. a cooker and fridge, washing machine, all what was needed for the week. I highly recommend this property!!

“EXCELLENT FRENCH ALPINE COTTAGE AND VILLAGE”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved this well equipped and surprisingly spacious cottage. Menthon St Bernard is a beautiful, traditional French Alpine village. It has good little shops, restaurants, a tourist information and a Tabac. The neighbours were friendly and helpful. This cottage is a 10 minute walk to the stunning lake Annecy which offers water sports and cafes. The local Chateau is 10 minutes walk away and well worth a visit. This cottage is well located for Annecy and the local region. We also visited Chamonix, Mont Blanc, Geneva and Grenoble from here. John and Helen have been very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. We have had a happy and memorable holiday here.

“Great base for exploring area”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very reasonably priced, spacious accomodation for 2 couples or family (it's spread over 4 floors and is like 2 self contained apartments. Well decorated and has everything you'd need. Doesn't get much sun, so best for people who want to get out and about. Annecy is a beautiful part of the world, and we were lucky to get 8 days of sunshine.

“Excellent location to explore”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Maison Menthon. The photos on the website don't do this lovely little hamlet justice. It's a fabulous location and area and we were delighted when we got there. The house was great and very homely. It's a really quiet location which was just what we were looking for and a great base to explore Annecy and the surrounding areas and towns.

“Traditional village feel with great access to Lake Annecy”
Reviewed 11 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We've stayed in a few houses around Annecy and enjoyed Maison Menthon the best. The lovely village feel and rambling spaces of the house, like something old and romantic from a Jacques Tati film; the setting beneath the castle and Les Dents de Lanfon; the homely kitchen and friendly neighbours. The location, a few minutes walk from the village, is one of the best around the lake.

“A Dream location under a fairytale castle”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The property isvery quaint and well equipped. It isin a lovely quiet location within walking distance to the little village and on down to the lakeside. I liked best its quietness. The only downside is that the downstairs is very dark and the bedroom is slightly damp and you cannot open the shutters as they open onto the street.
