About this property

Charming House "Foot in the Water". This villa is in a village setting.

Located in the medieval village of Chanaz, "O pied dans l'O" is a rare property at the water's edge. The house was built by sailors from Chanaz between 1800 and 1822. This house is a typical 'on the rocks' property.

"Feet in the water" is a recently renovated stone house, near Bourget's Lake (Aix les Bains, "the Riviera of the Alps"/Chambery), the largest lake in France.
This charming house is well equipped and offers all modern comforts for a pleasant holiday.
It is very spacious for 8 people, and can accommodate up to 10 people.
There are 3 bedrooms upstairs and one on the ground floor. There is a small garden, a private deck on the river, and private parking.

The terrace, built later, with its large masonry posts gives an impression of a house on stilts. The furnished terrace overlooks the water and is large enough to dine outside. It is also equipped with sunloungers and has direct access from the kitchen. There is a bbq at your disposal. You have a stunning view of the countryside and surrounding mountains. Due to being West oriented, you get to enjoy the beautiful sunset.
A spiral staircase allows you to go down to the garden at the edge of the water. There is a furnished space where you can have a coffee, a snack, all whilst admiring the nature where the boats pass.
With a boat, from the private dock of the house you can sail on the Rhone (you just have to pass a lock) or sail on Bourget's Lake (44.5 km² or 4450 hectares, 18 kilometers long and up to 145 m deep, the largest water reserve in France).
At the front of the house you will find a private parking area. It can accommodate between 2 and 3 cars. If necessary a small public car park is located less than 50 meters below.
In the basement of the house you have access to a laundry area/workshop with washing machine and dryer. Accessible from the street, you can easily store bicycles, windsurfing, bike racks, roof boxes, etc...

The Owner Recommends

Lunch or Dinner in the Restaurant "L'ail des Ours"

The French dishes are all homemade and the place is so great.

Renting Bikes

Very close to our house you can rent bikes and then go to the lake or on the bicycle lane "Via Rhôna" along the Rhône river. Either way, the views are unbelievable.

Renting Boats, Canoe or Paddle

From our house you can rent boats (without licence), canoe, kayak, paddleboard and then go on the river until the lake.

Visiting Hautecombe Abbey

To visit the abbey of Hautecombe is to travel in time. You will discover the history of the Dukes of Savoy and, at the same time, you will see how a religious community lives today.
