Thank you, Philippe, Marc and Sylvia for the meet, greet, and help during our relaxing weeks stay.
The apartment is well equipped and located overlooking the river Thiou, with a shared walking/cycle path that runs to the old township and lake Annecy, approximately a 15 minute brisk walk or a slow lazy walk enjoying the swans, ducks and people watching from many park bench's along the way or enjoy the local boulangerie on the other side of the neighborhood park from the apartment.
Visit the local information center for all the various activities in Annecy or take a bus day trip or overnight-er to Chamonix and go up the Aiguille du Midi cable car to enjoy the view of the alps.
It's really difficult to find fault with Magic Moments apartment - spotlessly clean, comfortable beds, plenty of fresh towels and every possible convenience.
The restaurants in the area are excellent, and far cheaper than eating in the centre of Annecy. We ate at L'Azimuth45, Contresens and the Moroccan restaurant, all very good.
The walk into town along the river is shaded and pleasant, and the apartment terrace is a real suntrap.
Our only small issue was with the company who handle the lettings, as they didn't reply to emails before the holiday. Then, despite phoning from the airport, as directed, we had to wait 45 minutes in the heat to be let into the apartment. Philippe, the owner, handled this immediately, and was in touch via email despite being abroad himself. It made all the difference, and was the only small blip in an otherwise excellent holiday.
We had a lovely holiday in Annecy and stayed at this very well equipped, modern apartment.
We were met by Sylvia who gave us the keys and showed us around, even left us a bottle of the local Fizz.
The apartment is smartly decorated and the beds were very comfortable which is so important!
We enjoyed sitting on the large balcony in the evenings after we had walked back from the old town restaurants.
Another bonus is that this property has allocated underground secure parking.
The owner and agents are very helpful too
Magic Moments is a great apartment in a super location. It is as advertised and overlooks the Thiou river with its lovely walking track all the way to the old town (10 minutes). It is located within a residential complex and the area is quiet and welcoming. A bakery is 2 minutes away and other shops, restaurants and services are close by. It is about a 10 minute walk from the station.
The apartment is light filled and sofas, chairs and beds are all of high quality. The outdoor terrace is a sun trap and is spacious and a delight to use. The kitchen is fully equipped for everything needed for self-catering. The WIFI was excellent.
Hanging space in the second bedroom is non existent.
We visited the apartment during a period of very high temperatures. The apartment did not cope well. The outdoor terrace (to floor) and the walls heat up and the apartment becomes a hot box. Fans are provided but they were inadequate. We had great difficulty getting the temperatures in the bedrooms below 28 degrees during the night. This makes sleeping difficult.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to other travelers. However, beware if you happen to arrive in the middle of a high Summer hot spell - be prepared to swelter. A second set of keys would have been useful.
Very pretty location above the river and trees with birds twittering every evening. Lovely walk along the front to the old town. Many seats for contemplation. The apartment was most comfortable and light and airy. Loved the light fittings. The deck was well used. A sharp knife would have been useful. The only bad note was that there was no one there to let us in. We had advised our arrival time by email before leaving home on our travels. Very kind neighbours found the contact for us and she was then most helpful. We greatly appreciated being driven back to the bus station when we left. Annecy itself was a delight.
Very well equipped apartment, lovely and clean. Met by the very helpful Sylvia who provided maps and directions. About a 20 minute walk to the town, easy and would be even nicer in the summer. The allocated parking space in the basement was great, and secure. As we were a party of 4 adults staying a second set of keys would have been appreciated. Really enjoyed staying in this lovely town.
I stayed at Magic moments with my husband and 2 daughters. The apartment is a great find. It's a 15mins walk from Annecy town which is great rather than having to take the car. The apartment itself is modern and very clean. It has a nice terrace which is lovely in the evening when the sun sets. It's also very quiet so we slept well during our stay. It's a good base for exploring the region as it's close to the main roads (not that you are disturbed by any noise) for visiting Chamonix, Geneva etc. The car parking space is great and located in the building and you get the lift from the basement directly to the apartment.
It is a good find and I would definitely recommend it!
