Luxurious Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

The gorgeous house at Bout du lac was an idyllic location. Every treasured photo is like a beautiful postcard. Equipped with all the gear to help us experience every aspect of our fabulous location right on the lake, we swam every day, paddle boarded or just relaxed and took in the marvellous vista. Some of us hiked to Forclaz and others enjoyed the manual and electric bikes which were a great hit as we explored the local villages. We loved the convenience of the local restaurant, Chez Ma Cousine and the ferry service to villages around the lake. We have special memories of the beautiful township of Annecy.

We would, and have already, recommended this fabulous house to family, friends and business associates.

5 Star quality in a 5 star location

  • 5 of 5

What a marvellous stay our group had in this beautiful house superbly located on the shores of Lake Annecy. Everything need to make this a memorable stay has been thought of. From the ensuites for every bedroom, well appointed kitchen (including a Thermomix!), paddle boards, kayaks etc for fun on the water to the very efficient and friendly managers who organised caterers to cook a meal for us every other day, the hire of electric bikes etc. etc. There is lots of great walking nearby, quaint market towns and the beautiful township of Annecy where we spent a delightful day shopping and sightseeing. Although the comfortable daybeds on the private deck by the lake took much of our time!!

Absolutely fabulous in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Eight long-time friends from Australia came together for a truly wonderful week at this luxurious lodge. Perfect in every way - the location, the views, the quality of the lodge itself and everything in it, and the marvellous amenities included, ensured we had just the best week. The Concierge service, both on arrival and as needed throughout the week, could not be faulted, and added significantly to the experience. We had great fun on the bikes, kayaks, paddleboards, etc and delighted in the local restaurants and markets, the small French villages along the bike paths, and the beautiful township of Annecy itself. We felt very special as we sipped champagne at sundown on our private jetty or dined on the spacious terrace. This truly was the holiday of lifetime and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Joan S.

Top Notch Property in an Idyllic Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a marvelous week at the property with 4 families and 12 people (4 teens) for a week for my dad's 80th birthday. The house is spectacularly equipped in every way. Every room is spacious and well equipped. Bathrooms are awesome. Bedding is top notch. The walls of the property are massive so the space is very quiet despite being not far from the street. The master suite on the top floor is spectacular and gigantic. The kitchen is large and super equipped (how many rentals come equipped with a Thermomix and Dyson vacuum cleaners?). We could fit 12 people at the dining table (but no more). American renters will find the washer/dryer undersized but that is typical for Europe. Recently remodeled with no expense spared, the house includes every latest technology you can imagine. All lighting is controlled via iPad and led lights are everywhere including along the dock. Music can be played in every room, etc. The patio area is great for a large family and the grassy area can be used to play badminton and other ball games. The deck is awesome with a spectacular view of the mountains. It is not right in front of the house but is easily accessed via a private path. We rented a boat for 3 days and did wake-boarding, wake-surfing and water-skiing to the teen's delight. The lower part of the lake is more intimate than the top part and much more beautiful. The house also comes with 3 SUP boards and a kayak which we used a lot as well. Doussard is one of the biggest paragliding spots in the world so you will be watching them all day (and you will want to try to). The Chez Ma Cousine restaurant next door is a great spot as well. Highly recommended. This made for one of our best family gatherings ever.

Make sure to ask for instructions on how to operate the AC as it took us time to find the remotes. You will need the AC in July or August. Property was very clean and the property management team (Francois and Marilyn) was very helpful and courteous.
