About Annabel

I grew up in the Savoie region,I've always been in love with Annecy it is such a pretty, perfect, has it all town. I've always wanted to share this amazing place with people from around the world and welcoming you in my apartment is giving me this opportunity.

Annabel purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Annabel chose Annecy

I had a real 'coup de coeur' for this apartment when I bought it in 2010. I spent the all summer renovating it with my dad who is a great wood carver and carpenter. The shape of the apartment is original all the fittings had to be custom made.

It has lots of caractere it, it is on the top floor of an old buidling, the wood beams inside gives it a warm atmosphere, the sleeping area in the mezzanine with a skylight window gives you a feeling of beeing in a cosy nest.

What makes this apartment unique

I love this apartment, it is a unique place, it is small but it has everything you need, you will not feel like you are living in your kitchen or in a square tilled box ! You have a separated area with sofa and a tv to relax; a desk with internet connection , a proper dining table and a fully equipped kitchen,you also have a small futon in the mezzanine if you want to read and relax ....

A cosy retreat in the hub of Annecy

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is up over 60 steps but you soon get used to it and there are wonderful views over the rooftops from the window just before you enter the apartment.

The apartment is compact, cosy and has everything you need. The market is held just up the road 3 times a week so you can shop there and cook in the apartment and there are many restaurants nearby too as well as cafes. You are right in the hub of the old town We particularly enjoyed eating fondue, and perch.

The lake is very close too so you can walk there, swim in the warmer months and you can hires motor boats and cruise on the lake.

Annabel is very helpful and knowledgeable about Annecy. She used to live in the apartment.

A fantastic character apartment near the lake and right on the edge of the old town. Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in Annecy by bus in the pouring rain and walked to the apartment. This would have taken about 15 minutes had my phone (Google Maps) not run out of juice at a critical time. However after some mis-direction we did arrive to a warm dry and welcoming environment.

We loved our stay here. Being right on the edge of the old town and about 100 metres from the lake and gardens it is well placed for all Annecy activities. There are restaurants in all directions, we hired bikes just around the corner and the lake boats are across he road.

The apartment is quite large and well furnished with all facilities required for self catering travellers. There is a Monoprix ( Grocery store) just up the road for supplies. It is however only suitable for able bodied people as there are 60 steps to the top floor doorway. Also the bedroom is on a mezzanine which has a steep spiral staircase to get to. If you can handle the stairs (we are in our mid 60s and managed OK) then you will love it.

A charming and intimate lodging.

  • 5 of 5

Annabel's loft apartment in the Centre of the city is an excellent place from which to explore not only Annecy but also the entire lake and surrounding countryside. The apartment is cozy and even though it is several floors from the ground was worth every step. The apartment is well furnished with everything one needs to enjoy a vacation. And Annabel has been the most courteous host we have had in all our home away rentals. She has extended herself to assist me on a variety of issues that made my stay memorable and successful. I recommend this accommodation to anyone seeking a City Centre location in this lovely city.

Excellent, we were really happy with the apartment

  • 5 of 5

Great, I would highly recommend Annecy as a holiday destination for food, sports, lounging and shopping and I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone who wants to stay right in the old town (and doesn't mind walking up a few stairs). The apartment itself is comfortable and charming being in an old building while also being well equipped with the necessities for modern life.

All the rooms were clean and well presented and we just sent whatever questions or queries we had to the owner by text or E-mail and she dealt with them promptly.

We enjoyed a great two weeks there and I have already recommended it to family and friends.

Adorable duplex en plein cœur d'Annecy

  • 5 of 5

C'est un adorable petit nid douillet, accueillant et vraiment propre, en plein cœur d'Annecy le Vieux et pourtant étonnamment calme. Il nou a permis de décompresser en quelques jours seulement, car nous étions près de tout: les belles balades, les restos, les plages, les locations de vélos pour faire le tour du lac...

Merci à Annabel pour sa confiance et son accueil.

Annecy, in the North of the French Alps, is also known as the Venice of Savoie.

The apartment is located in the medieval town center built around a 12th Century Château and dissected by small canals.

Stroll through the old quarters of Annecy, window-shop under the arcades, taste the local food in one of the many restaurants on the quays along the canals, or enjoy the natural scenery on a boat trip, stopping and visiting the other towns and villages bordering the 9 miles lake.

The nearby mountains and forests provide the perfect backdrop for an array of outdoor exploration such as climbing, hiking, sightseeing, and paragliding. The bicycle path circling the lake is perfect for rollerblading and cycling while enjoying pure and invigorating air. The lake opens up the possibilities for rafting, fishing, diving, swimming, and water-skiing. Winter sports fanatics will find a variety of first class ski resorts within a 30min drive from Annecy.
