“The house and location made for our perfect summer holiday. We loved morning runs to the boulangerie, the proximity to the lake (pedalo's, SUP boards); our cycle rides into Annecy old town, and afternoon's at Talloire beach (paddling pool, shady trees, slides and diving boards). We also loved coming back to the house - our 3 yr old daughter adored all the toys in the house and the trampoline in the garden, we enjoyed bar b q's on the balcony, and my son loved the bikes. We seemed to be very compatible families, with easy going comms via Wattsapp. The only thing we quibbled about was which house had the better view. i would argue that the lake plus town, plus trees and mountains were pretty hard to beat.... Maybe we'll swap again. Thank you! ”

About our home
Our beautiful, architect designed home, was completed in the summer of 2010. The villa’s location and aspect make it truly an idyllic setting: south facing, airy, spacious & overlooking the lake.
The villa was designed to make the most of the fantastic views with floor to ceiling windows on each level looking out towards the lake. The villa is spacious and modern with three floors, and private parking/a garage behind.
On the ground floor the luxury open-plan kitchen overlooks the living room area, and then straight out to the lake. A large dining room table comfortably seating a party of eight is perfectly positioned in front of the open plan kitchen. The patio doors lead directly on to a large balcony where another large dining table and a bbq are based for eating outside.
The basement floor leads directly onto the garden, where another outdoor dining table is located for summer dining and sun loungers for lapping up the sun! There is a TV/home cinema room on this floor as well as two large bedrooms (both with double beds), a spare bathroom, and a laundry room .
The master bedroom and one of the children’s bedrooms are located on the top floor of the house. The master bedroom has its own private balcony and double patio doors as well as an open plan bathroom with a huge bath and separate shower. The children’s bedroom is large with it's own ensuite bathroom with a bath/shower.
The garden offers great view of the lake and is as safe and private , with a large trampoline and a swing/slide for children.
The villa has the advantage of being in a quiet part of Annecy, on a hillside overlooking the stunning views of the lake, whilst simultaneously being close enough to walk or cycle into the town itself to enjoy the numerous markets, restaurants, the bustling night life and of course the easy access to many different places nearby.
Annecy is a sports paradise. You can set off on several walks and cycling trips directly from the house, swim in the lake which is only 300 m away, play tennis at the local tennis club, run along the shores of the lake, hire a boat, go water skiing, or SUP…. In the winter several ski resorts are only 30 -45 mins drive away…
In brief: Annecy is stunningly beautiful; the Chic Haute-Savoie capital is the perfect location for a holiday. Nestled around the northwestern end of the Lake Annecy against a pretty backdrop of Alpine peaks, the town itself is crisscrossed by ancient canals, geranium-covered bridges, medieval houses and arched alleyways perfect for meandering. A cycling path snakes along the lake’s southwestern shore and pedalos, canoes and cruise-boats pepper its water in summer
