Have just had a wonderful couple of days at this super hotel. Picked a mid-price room with half mountain half lake view no 24. Light and airy good bathroom. The service excellent and food delicious. Lots to do walk or out on the lake, mini or full golf or just relax by the lovely pool. The Hotel is super great position not too, big family owned and run with many years experience good attention to detail and very helpful. We really enjoyed the food and wine!

We stayed here for two nights in April and loved the hotel. We booked lake facing room and the view was just fantastic. The room was beautiful, quite spacious with good quality toiletries and lovely bathrobes. We ate in the hotel on one of the nights and were very impressed with the quality of the food. It is a 15 to 20 minute drive into Annecy, which is really well worth a visit, but we were pleased that we chose to stay away from the town as, even in April, it was fairly busy.

We arrived at Cottage Bise after a long drive through France. Views of Lake Annecy from the hotel are superb. The small town of Talloires is picturesque and quaint, very peaceful and relaxing. The hotels rooms are nice, large beds and bathrooms. Jacuzzi and swimming pool very welcome in the hot weather! Hotel restaurant has a great setting right on the lake front. Blankets offered if the evening gets chilly. Food a little on the pricey side, but very good. Friendly and helpful reception - would definitely go back!

My wife and I recently returned from a very enjoyable trip to Geneva, Eastern France, the Provence and the Cot d'Azur. During that trip we spent two nights at Le Cottage Bise on Lac d"Annecy, Talloires, France. What a delightful, wonderful hotel. The setting is gorgeous, right on the Lake and with a beautiful French Alps mountain background. We enjoyed a beautiful view of Lake Annecy from our smallish but well appointed room. The breakfast was most enjoyable and the staff and owner Jean Claude were all helpful and pleasant!! While we prefer Annecy as a city/town, staying in Talloires was NO disadvantage. Annecy is easily reachable with a short drive through very picturesque towns, and the setting and ambiance of Le Cottage Bise would make it our choice on any return visits to the area.

I selected the hotel based on reviews from TripAdvisor, as I do with all hotel selections now, and the other, positive reviews were spot on. I highly recommend Le Cottage Bise.

Oh my - what a place. We were staying in Annecy and went for a drive around the lake -
the minute we saw Le Cottage we knew that's where we wanted to stay. Luckily for us they had some rooms available - the owner insisted on showing us a couple of rooms so that we could choose the one we preferred.

We had the best view from our bedroom balcony of any hotel we've stayed in worldwide - and that's a lot to choose from. The room was beautifully decorated and the attention to detail was second to none. The peace and quiet was so relaxing - the noisiest thing in Talloires is a cuckoo.

The food was superb - michelin star quality but not michelin star prices - beautiful dining room with stunning views across the lake. Breakfast was great too - best croissants we had in France.

The staff were incredibly friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. The owner would help us plan our day, show us maps, check weather forecasts, brilliant. His wife is just charming and couldn't have been nicer.

Our stay in Le Cottage made our holiday in Annecy so special and gave us some wonderful memmories. Merci!

Went onJuly 08 to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. My husband booked it for us as a surprise for me, since we had been here before and totally loved the place! Beautiful setting, fantastic hotel, wonderful town and fantastic scenery - a total joy! We stayed on the top floor and had one of the end suites with the top balcony during our first visit, which was out of this world. During our second visit (08) we were on a lower floor initially, but were then move skyward again during the next day. The owners are very approachable and cannot do enough for you. Love the new terrace and the new jacuzzi. Together with the pool, these new additions can only help to make Cottage Bise even more attractive to anyone wanting to stay in one of the most wonderful places in France - Lac d'Annecy!

Well I have to say I am absolutely stunned by the negative comments about Le Cottage Bise.

Myself and my now husband held our wedding here in May 2008 and we couldn't have wished for anything more. Jean-Claude and his wife Christine are an absolute delight to deal with, and all the staff were accommodating and very friendly. We were e-mailing them constantly with questions leading up to the wedding and they were always quick with the replies. They helped us arrange travel in the middle of the day into the town of Annecy for our guests and even gave us some of their glasswear that they sell at the hotel as a wedding present. We are regular visitors to Talloires as it is such a beautiful place and we couldn't have chosen better in holding our reception at the Cottage Bise. Please if you are thinking of making a visit to Talloires don't let these comments put you off, we are already thinking of going back before the end of the year for a long weekend.

Most of our guests had never been to Talloires before and all said how wonderfully tranquil and beautiful it was and that they would be making a return trip.
