This architect-designed house in the hills commands the most glorious views of Lake Annecy and the surrounding Alpine scenery.

Vue Du Lac sleeps up to 10 guests across its two self-contained floors, each one with its own entrance. Starting off on the first floor, climb the stairs and be impressed by the incredible vistas from the open-plan lounge, dining area and kitchen. Large windows frame the view, opening to the upper terrace for al-fresco dining overlooking the lake and mountains. Three attractive double bedrooms can be found on this floor, alongside a modern bathroom with Italian shower.

Downstairs, the inviting ground floor apartment features two double bedrooms, a shower room and a comfortable lounge and kitchen-diner leading to a patio facing Lake Annecy. Families with children are welcomed across both floors – toys and books can be provided.

The owners have designed the contemporary interiors with great attention to detail. Benefit from underfloor heating throughout alongside state-of-the-art appliances in both kitchens whilst all five queen-size double beds are of a high quality, manufactured in Brittany. There is ample storage for bikes, ski gear, paddle boards and hiking clothing – the owners have thought of everything so you can make the most of this magnificent region throughout the year.  

Located at an altitude of 850m on the edge of the Massif des Bauges Regional Nature Park, there are walking and hiking opportunities on your doorstep. Keen cyclists and mountain bikers can appreciate many trails across the area, including Lake Annecy’s much-loved voie-verte that loops around the lake.

Drive down to the attractive small town of Saint-Jorioz, loved for its sandy lakeside beach with turquoise coloured water and a wealth of summer activities from boat hire and watersports to pétanque, volleyball, tennis and more. The elegant town of Annecy, often called the ‘Venice of the Alps’ is just a 16km drive away whilst picture-perfect Talloires sits on the other side of the lake within half an hour by car.

Elsewhere, experience tree-top trails, canyoning, rafting and even winter sports such as cross-country skiing and sledging. No matter the time of year, Vue Du Lac offers scenic surroundings and so much to experience in this beautiful corner of France.

Vue Du Lac enjoys glorious views down to Lake Annecy, a 10-minute drive south of Saint-Jorioz. Fly into Chambéry Airport (46km) or Geneva Airport (60km) or drive 8-9 hours from Calais/Dieppe/Caen on the north-west coast. If travelling by train, Gare d’Annecy (17km) has arrivals from Paris Gare de Lyon (the direct TGV service takes around 3 hour 40 minutes). A car is essential to be able to explore this beautiful region.

Located at an altitude of 850m on the edge of the Massif des Bauges Regional Nature Park, this is a quiet area with a handful of neighbours and you can discover wonderful walking and hiking opportunities from your doorstep. There are other little hamlets within a short distance, one home to a traditional fromagerie (guests receive a small discount) whilst the nearest shops and restaurants are in Saint-Jorioz (7.5km) including a large supermarket. The Thursday morning market in Saint-Jorioz showcases a wealth of delicious regional products.

Saint-Jorioz is especially famed for its picture-perfect sandy beach with turquoise waters (in July and August there is a charge to access the beach as a lifeguard is usually present). Activities in and around Saint-Jorioz include pétanque, volleyball, tennis, padel, boat rental and a range of seasonal watersports. Families will adore Criq Parc forest playground (suitable for children aged 3+), open seasonally.

Cycling fans can join the 43km voie verte that loops around Lake Annecy, ideal for families and more experienced cyclists alike. If not bringing your own, arrange bike hire in advance and they can be stored in the garage. There are other more challenging cycling routes as well as mountain biking opportunities through the Alpine landscapes. Other adventurous activities across this region include rafting, canyoning and climbing alongside skiing and sledging in the snowy winter. Meanwhile, golf lovers note that Golf de Giez and Golf du Lac d'Annecy are both within a 30 to 40-minute drive.

You may prefer to simply spend your time discovering other gorgeous lakeside spots and beautiful villages and towns. Château de Duingt (11km) sits in a stunning position on the edge of the lake, next to the charming medieval village of Duingt itself. On the other side of the lake, Talloires (23km) is another idyllic village with impressive Savoy architecture and gastronomic restaurants alongside pretty beaches and watersports. Keen hikers can admire the waterfall, Cascade d'Angon, just outside Talloires.

The elegant lakeside town of Annecy (16km) is another must-visit during your time by the lake. Steeped in history and in such a wonderful setting, no wonder the town has been classified as a Town of Art and History in France. With canals flowing through the town, it is also referred to as the ‘Venice of the Alps’. No matter what the season, soak up the joyful ambience as you walk by the lake amongst locals and visitors alike.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

This region is wonderful for families with children of every age with a wealth of activities to keep everyone entertained by the lakeside and within the beautiful mountains. Toys and books can be provided at the house, alongside a cot, highchair and baby bath, and there is a large wooden stairgate (to be requested in advance) which can be used at the top of the first-floor stairs.

In nearby Saint-Jorioz, families with younger children will love Criq Parc forest playground, open seasonally and suitable for children aged 3+ (height restrictions also apply). Furthermore, the lakeside beach at Saint-Jorioz is known for its sandy shores and turquoise coloured water. In the summer look out for volleyball, pétanque, picnic areas, boat rental and other family-friendly activities. Do note there is usually a charge to access the beach in July and August.

Seasonal watersports in and around Saint-Jorioz include stand-up paddle boarding, canoeing and kayaking alongside jet-skis and more. You will find many more watersport opportunities at other spots along the lake, including the very pretty village of Talloires around half an hour away by car. For gentler experiences on the water, enjoy sight-seeing cruises and private boat tours.

The voie verte that loops around Lake Annecy is great for cycling-loving families as most of the route is fairly flat and mainly car-free (there are sections where you join the main road). Bike hire can be arranged and there is space to store bikes in the garage.

For older children/teens, adventurous activities across this region include mountain biking, canyoning and rafting. In the winter discover cross-country skiing and sledging.
There are two tree-top activity centres, one via the winding roads near Quintal (27km) and the other in the mountains inland from Talloires (31km), both offering tree-top trails for a range of ages in incredible surroundings.
