You'll find a delightful children’s play room in attic (perfect for keeping the little ones quiet) and the main house is complemented by the Pool House with wood burning oven and bbq, heated infinity pool, hot tub, sauna and wet room.

The beauty of Domaine Des Glieres is that it has something to offer all year round.

During the summer the Alps return to their traditional farming roots with a twist of adventure. Tee off on a range of local golf courses, explore the mountains by bike, enjoy a day’s sailing on the lake or simply enjoy hundreds of kilometers of mountain trails on foot. For those in search of adrenaline, try your hand at canyoning, take to the skies by paragliding or wake boarding on the lake. The choices are endless, and the choice is all yours.

During the winter, the small ski slope of Montmin is literally outside your door, but for those wishing to adventure further afield, larger resorts are just a short drive away. Annecy and its surrounding towns are vibrant and cosmopolitan, hosting a vast range of celebrated events all year round from the Tour de France to the Animated Film Festival in June to August’s Fete du Lac.

And for the bargain hunter there are antiques to be found! From local dealers, to the Annecy Antique Market (held the last Saturday of each month), to the yearly Antiques Salon, there are endless treasures to be found.

Haute Savoy also offers a delicious variety of gastronomic choices. Whether you decide to visit one of its three star Michelin restaurants or prefer to enjoy some local Savoyard cuisine, you won't be disappointed. There are six great restaurants in walking distance to the house, which is also ideal for private functions such as weddings and family celebrations. Conveniently located only a short drive from the airports in Annecy (20mins), Geneva (40mins), Lyon and Grenoble (90mins), there is also a direct TGV service from Paris. Nearest local shops and towns are a 15 minute drive away in various directions.

If you're looking for a weekend sporting break with friends or a corporate team building, this can easily be organised in the form of a bespoke package.

  • Perfect intimate wedding in the Alps

    on 22/09/2021

    Instead of a formal wedding, my husband and I wanted to rent a chateau for a week. We were quite nervous, because we had never visited the French Alps before, let alone the property itself, and didn't know what we were getting into. The photos you see online are magnificent, but do not hold a candle to how it looks in person. I'm not much of an emotional person, but the view alone almost made me cry. We could not stop taking photos of it.

    The house is over 100 years old, and normally with these types of homes it can be common for the inside to have a musty smell or be a bit rustic. At Domaine Des Glieres, you can tell that the property is cleaned regularly and is well maintained. The couple who helps maintain the property are absolutely amazing, very welcoming and gracious.

    If you're looking for a nice holiday with your family, or something similar to the ceremony my husband and I did, I would recommend Domaine Des Glieres. It is quite far from the closest populated town (Annecy), so you'll need to rent a car if you want to venture out a bit.
