This is a fantastic location. We were blown away by the house and the proximity to everything. We love the outdoors life and were spoilt for options from; para sailing, stand up paddle boarding, swimming, bike riding, mountain hikes, bush running, Annecy ferry boat at the back door.... and after a big day out to come back to a hot spa and drink on the deck. And all this without leaving Lake Annecy. Further a field we visited Mount Blanc and Charmonix within easy day trip range.
Accommodation was first class and decked out with all the mod cons. We enjoyed the delights of a private in-house chef and also the cuisine from a great local restaurant (Chez Ma Cousin) a short stroll from the house. Say hello to Ian!
Overall this holiday was amazing and was such a refreshing break. It is hard to think about work or other things in the world with the sun sparkling on the lake as you watch the paragliders do their stuff from the mountains above while sipping French champagne from your deck.
We loved our two weeks and have no hesitation recommending to others!
We had an unbelievably enjoyable time.
There is so much to do (hiking, paddle boarding, paragliding) or, even better, it is a wonderful place to do nothing (hot tub, waterfront deck chairs, long couches).
There are an untold number of day trips, too, from Chamonix, Geneva and Annecy Markets to driving around exploring the local country-side.
We will definitely be back...and we recommend early in the season.
This was our 30th Wedding Anniversary holiday. It began in Switzerland which blew us away with its beauty but fortunately we had saved the best for last. Lake Annecy was amazing. The Lake Lodge guesthouse was exquisite! We met with 3 other couples who travelled over to help us celebrate.
The house is in a perfect location. Right on the lake and at the quiet end of Annecy. It is beautifully furnished and the owners have spared no expense and thought of every convenience. It even had a Thermomix!
We could not have enjoyed our trip any more. The managers helped us organise a day of parapenting which is a MUST. They also booked a chef who came and cooked a 6 course meal for us on two evenings. We cycled around the lake (3 hours), took the ferry ride around it, hiked beautiful mountains, swam in the lake, soaked in the hot tub, shopped at the markets and discovered a great restaurant 100mtrs away, Che Ma Cruisine. A day trip to Chamonix to see Mt Blanc was easily done (1 1/4 hours).
A superb holiday in a superb home.
Cannot wait to go back.
If your looking for a lovely place in the mountains of France that has it all. Well .... your in luck. Call Selina or Marilyn to stay at this fantastic property on the shore of Lake Annecy. Close to everything including perhaps some of the best power gliding in the world (my comment) with mountain walks, lovely restaurants and lake activities all in close proximity. Plus sleeping for up to 16. We had a great time. Many thanks.
Beautiful holiday and stunning accommodation. Managers made us feel at home and relaxed from the moment of arrival. Great walks, lake swims, hikes and local scenery stunning. Great restaurant 5 minutes walk away on lake. Highly recommend on every level and would return tomorrow. Have recommended to a number of friends in Australia. Thank you for a holiday I will treasure for many years to come
Incredible two week long stay in this warmly and perfectly finished property. Sitting in front of the warm fire looking up to snowy alps views and lake annecy was fantastic.
We were lucky enough to enjoy a Japanese and a French in house chef catering to family and friends. We booked the additional daily house and clothing cleaning and had great service. We made grocery lists and the staff sourced for an extra fee which was well worth the expense. The lakeside hot tub was a bonus after skiing.
Skied Courchevel and La clusaz and went shopping in chamonix.
Will definitely book a week next summer to take advantage of the lake terrasse.
Heaven on earth for cyclist and water sports enthusiasts. The lodge checks every box for luxury accommodations . A must visit.
