The Owner Recommends

Visit Annecy

Spend a day touring Annecy with its medieval streets and busting market.

Lakeside Cruise

Catch the local ferry from the port of Menthon and travel clockwise around the lake.


Cycle along the dedicated cycle path which circles Lake Annecy, or for more leisurely days, take your bike on the local ferry to the base of the lake at Doussard then cycle along the former railway line (now cycle track) back to Annecy.


Drive up to La Clusaz and enjoy extensive ski slopes for all grades. For the more adventurous, travel to the more family resort of Grand Bornand. Both resorts within 30 mins drive.
Alternatively drive further afield to Megeve (1 hour), Val D'Isere (2 hours), Meribel (1hr 15), or do them all in an adrenaline filled week!
