Thank you for your nice comment. I don't really remember in what room you were, but I hope you did get to see the full 400m2 garden around the house and open to our guests! Not mentioning the forest and path going up to the château... You definitely will have to come back!

Our family suite (2 rooms) was extremely comfortable with a balcony overlooking the garden. Our host, Odile, could not have been more helpful and hospitable. The house has been most wonderfully restored and has many interesting antiques and art works. Breakfast was fine but not lavish. DO check on whether you can visit the near-by Chateau - we were only...

Old estate (16 century), lovely restored with a wide garden. View on medieval castle from one side, on lake Annecy - from other. These views are so romantic and beautiful that possibly hours look only without moving. The house is with huge rooms, wooden beams, great hall with fireplace. Excellent breakfast and tea/coffee are permanently. Very kind owner family. It...
