“Stunning lakeside property”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Villa Bagatelle is simply stunning. It was renovated for 2015 and now offers 5 ensuite bedrooms all of which are a good size. The location, right on the lake is really quite breath-taking.

The town of Annecy is very pretty and the scenery is beautiful. We did a few activities: cycling, walking, para-gliding, white water rafting, paddle-boarding - all good fun.

A great property in a stunning location.

“Pure Perfection!”
Reviewed 20 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The newly renovated villa Bagatelle is truly a fantastic holiday experience. The house itself, the amazing location with your own garden all the way down to the Annecy lake and the very friendly and professional service of the owners.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great vacation and thanks goes to this woundrful place. The view is stunning, the location is amazing very close to downtown Annecy and most important the hosts are very friendly and helpful. I can say it was one of the best vacation homes/hotels I ever had we definitely look forward to another visit next summer. Highly recommended for families.

“My Kids Were in Heaven...”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We visited Annecy for the first time in late May and were lucky enough to stay at Villa Bagatelle. Our first impression of the home, the area, and the proprietors: We were blown away! Lac d'Annecy is incredibly beautiful and this home is perfectly situated to take advantage of amazing views. The long, sweeping lawn and privacy between the homes was perfect for my two "city kids" (ages 6 and 8) to run and play freely. They spent loads of time in the hammock and playing in the grass. My youngest even took a swim in the chilly and crystal clear lake! We enjoyed kayaking, cooking out on the grill, and made the easy drive into town a few times. Michel and Alexandra were extremely helpful in guiding us toward good restaurants, and even set up a paragliding adventure for my husband. At the end of our too-short trip, we all said we'd love to come back and stay awhile. I would wish for a month at this well-appointed home.

“Fantastic location and breathtaking views”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband and I and our two children (aged 10 and 13) had a wonderful week at the Villa Bagatelle in April. The Villa Bagatelle is in a peaceful lakeside villa with stunning views of Lake Annecy and the mountains and this was perfect for us. We were very well looked after by the owners, Alexandra and Michel Montant, who met us the minute we arrived and showed us around the house and gardens. They even brought a welcome breakfast for us on our first morning and left it on the terrace for us! This was very much appreciated as we hadn't had time to shop the day before. The house and garden are very well equipped. The interior of the house is very stylish with a 60's, James Bond feel! We liked the Eames chairs and glass table and artwork. The view from the terrace and dining room are stunning and you can enjoy the scenery while eating. There are two large televisions in the house and both have satellite TV - so we were pleased to be able to get BBC! We were also able to borrow DVD's which Alexandra brought round whenever we sent a text. The 3 bedrooms downstairs are comfortable and all have lake views. The weather was warm and sunny and we enjoyed spending time in the garden - sunbathing on the loungers, going in the Jacuzzi and enjoying the view and we even played table tennis. There is a kayak there, but we didn't have time to go on the lake. (I am sure if we came in the summer we would use it and swim in the lake.) This house is a great location - only a 2 minute drive to the local shops (Veyrier and Menthon) and only 10-15 minutes drive to the centre of Annecy and the old Town. The village of Menthon is only 5 minutes away and there is a lovely tennis club there where we played. The mountains and ski resorts are a 30 minute drive away and we visited La Clusaz and had a delicious lunch there. Michel and Alexandra are very good hosts and are always on hand if we needed anything. They explained that the house is being upgraded and extended to provide more bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms - so the house will be even more stunning when this is finished!

“Beautiful Family Villa”
Reviewed 16 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Thank you Michel and Alexandra for a wonderful experience. The villa was a perfect extended home for our family during our stay. Positioned on the lakes edge it has beautiful views and is close to skiing, walks along the lake or a visit to Annecy. The villa is large suitable for a family and beautifully appointed.

“Setting superb but villa disappointing”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013
2
people found this review helpful

The lake side location of this villa is stunning, and the garden and terrace are pleasant places to relax. The managers are friendly and enthusiastic and were happy to help us organize transport to the station and the dispatch of our rental bikes at the end of our stay.
However, the interior of the villa itself is far from being the 5-star luxury it's advertised as, and unless the owners do some major alterations to it, I wouldn't recommend this property to anyone as a place to stay.
The fixtures and fittings look flashy and expensive, but most of the rooms are cramped, the house as a whole is poorly designed and dysfunctional, and much of the decor is extremely dated. The worst problem for this villa is the lack of any ensuite bathrooms, and to have only 2 bathrooms for 8 people is totally inadequate.
As for the decor, well the weird dark blue padded velvet wallcovering in the upstairs bedroom, and the salmon-pink 50s style upstairs bathroom are especially unattractive. The over-use of glass tables and shelves was also unappealing, if not plain dangerous - as in the hideous orange glass shelf mounted immediately above the couch in the tv room, and the glass-topped bedside tables.
The so-called "practical, fully equipped kitchen" is absolutely hopeless. It's one of the smallest kitchens I've ever seen, being little more than a passageway linking the front door, dining area and stairs to the basement and there was no way more than one person at a time could work in there. Far from being well equipped, it didn't even have a salt & pepper pot. Half the crockery, plus the swanky coffee machine and tea machine (yes, tea machine), and a huge display of coffee and tea capsules, have to be stored in the lounge because there's no room for them in the kitchen, and to add insult to injury, it transpired we were expected to pay a euro for each cup of coffee or tea that we made, which, considering the weekly rental we were paying for this villa, we thought was petty and mean to say the least.
The downstairs toilet was avoided if at all possible - it has no window or ventilation, nor does it have a lock on the door, and it's located in what is essentially a small cupboard opening directly into the tv room.
In summary, this villa is over-rated and underwhelming.

Management Response
8 Aug 2013
The comment of our clients from New Zeland is interesting. We have made a fantastic job to transform the landscape and for them the lake side location is now stunning. We are also very much involved in the quality of the welcoming and our clients have apreciated.
About the villa the comment is not as good as for the outside of the property because the 4 couples who came to the villa thought it was like in a hotel with ensuite bathroom for each bedroom. In fact the 4 couples who came to do bycicling during the Tour de France didn't know them very much and they have rented the villa from a tour operator who didn't gave them the righ information about the villa. If you go on our website www.visionluxe.com you have a brochure, the floor plans and lots of information for the villa ; we say that there is 4 bedrooms and only 2 bathrooms. So our clients were so disapointed that they could'nt enjoy the quality of the villa. All the furnitures are from well known designers from the 50's ( Charles Eames, Le Corbusier, Mies Van der Rohe, ...), the beds are "Palace Quality" like in the best hotels in Paris, the kitchen is full equiped, ... Of course all the tastes are different and if you don't appreciate the style our interior architect has developped for us we can understand. Many other people love this french style villa.
Next year the villa will have a third bathroom and new toilets. Our loyal and our new guests will be happy to find these improvments.
Thank you for the comment. So we can progress every year
