“We had a wonderful stay at Simi's house with our two boys, aged 18 months and 3 years. The house was ideally set up for children and was in a great location, just outside of Annecy. Simi was a fantastic host - she even left a birthday present for my three year old son, which is used on a weekly basis to this day. I would highly recommend this property.”

“Simi's house is stunning, modern in architecture and design with a fantastic view overlooking Annecy town and the lake. It was the perfect location for our summer holiday, being so close to Chamonix where we live. The house itself was very spacious, well equipped for families too and the sunsets from the large terrace in the evening were superb. The house is located just a few hundred metres from the lakeside, which was great to book a boat for the afternoon and swim in with our 3 year old and the dog! We enjoyed going to the different beach areas each day in particular Menthon and Taillores. Annecy centre itself is no more than 15 minutes’ walk or a short bike ride around the lake. It’s a beautiful historic town known by the locals as the “Venice of the Alps” due to its meandering canals through the town and alfresco dining. Simi was a great host, she gave us lots of helpful information on what to do during our stay, her website “mummy in the mountains” is also full of helpful tips. Thank you Simi for letting us stay in your beautiful home, and a special thanks for the Annecy colouring in postcards and pencils which our 3 year old adored! We loved our stay here and would certainly recommend it. ”
“Maison moderne et agréable à vivre, dans un quartier calme. Belles vues sur le lac d'Annecy et ses montagnes. Nous avons eu beau temps et nous avons pu nous rafraîchir dans le lac. Nous avons profité du cadre pour faire de belles sorties en vélo, en paddle. Le feu d'artifice d'Annecy est magnifique. Nous avons pu échanger facilement avec Simi et son mari.Echange réussi.”
“Our trip to Annecy was aboszultley amazing. The house is truly wonderful with incredible views for every room, and balconies and decks at each level allowing you to enjoy the view over the lake towards the snow capped mountains. Annoy itself is beautiful with wonderful walks along the lake to the old town filled with typical french character. The castle and museum are well worth a visit. Its a perfect location to relax one day, or enjoy skiing the next as its only 45 minutes for La Clusaz and Balme which had a great selection of slopes, and views across to Monte Blanc. One day we went to chamonix and all took the cable car to the top of the Augile du Midi which was really worth it to get the most amazing views I have ever experience of the mountain ranges and Monte Blanc looming over us. The accommodation was really luxurious, with comfortable beds, and all mod cons and a great TV/ Media room for the evenings. Simi and Lionel were perfect hosts and great communicators and made us feel really welcome. It was one of the best family holidays we have had and we thank them very much!

“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! ”
