Beach hut style studio with direct lake access via a pontoon ideal for swimming



Updated: 07-Oct-2016
Two person studio, lakeside Annecy, paragliding, cycling, watersports, outdoors

Our lovely studio is small but well equipped and ideal for a holiday hideaway. The studio is tucked away down the side of the building.The kitchenette has everything you need, in compact form, there is a microwave/grill. The Annecy lake cycle path passes in front of the studio. The building has its own private pontoon and is great for swimming. La Cuillere a L'Omble restaurant is a less than a minute walk from the apartment and is wonderful. Annecy is 17km, Talloires 5km and Doussard 4km with good shops and cafes. If you are interested in paragliding, water skiing, walking, swimming, cycling or just relaxing it is in a great location for all these things.

About the Owner

We live and work in the mountains of Switzerland but have always loved the mountain environment. We often use our lakeside bolthole so it should have everything you need! We hope you enjoy sharing our holiday home.

Fabulous flat

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described. The flat is in a great location, right next to the lake. It is a beautiful area to explore either on foot or by bike. The flat itself is well equipped with a cleverly thought out sleeping arrangement and a wonderful shower. It was all clean and tidy. I would not hesitate to recommend it. The owner is very helpful and provided great information. Go and stay next to lake Annecy, it's amazing.

From the Owner

We bought the studio for the location; as they say location, location, location! It has the sunniest position around the lake, with a fabulous spot for swimming. We love the restaurant two doors down and so the place is perfect for a holiday. Water sports, biking, swimming, good food, great views, sunsets, everything you need for a great trip away.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Geneva at 60 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Cuillere de Omble, Bar Restaurant at 30 Metres Nearest Golf : Golf du Lac d'Annecy,Giez at 7 Kilometres Nearest Train : Annecy Station at 23 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Cuillere de Omble, Bar Restaurant at 30 Metres Nearest Ski : La Clusaz at 40 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Over the road! at 20 Metres Car: necessary


The studio is around 20m from the lake and has a communal pontoon, shared with the building. It is perfect for summer swimming and normally tops out at 24 degrees centigrade mid summer. Many other water sports are available locally.


Geneva airport is the closest airport and takes about an hour. Driving from the UK would take around 8 hours from Calais. Car rental from Geneva would be required, book it over the internet as it is cheaper and make sure you book it on the Swiss side not the French side as the arrivals are on the Swiss side.


Annecy is 17km away and can be reached by car in 20 - 25 mins or by boat (the lake taxi bus) from Talloires which is 5km away. Doussard is about 4 km away and has all amenities. A great supermarket, butchers, bakers, chemist, bank (ATM) and a market. There is a great restaurant called La Cuillere a Omble that is 30 seconds walk from the apartment. Fantastic service and food.

Further Details:

The paragliding schools are very close and you can land within 5 minute walking distance from the flat. Annecy has the best market I have ever seen! (Tuesdays). There is a nature reserve within walking distance and it is a great walk and regular beaver sightings! The Col de Forclaz is great to drive up (or cycle if you are fit!) with views of the whole lake. You can cycle to your hearts content here with a cycle track almost all the way around the lake (38km) and up the Col de Aravis and many others. Mountain biking is excellent. The nearby Doussard beach offers pedalos, dingys, wind surfing, sailing and boat hire (summer only). Water skiing and wake boarding is available at the end of the lake. There are many great restaurants as well!

From the Owner

The studio has access to a private pontoon so you have your own private place to swim from. It is in the nature reserve so the location is stunning. We were lucky enough to see the Tour de France in 2009 literally on our door step, and it passes again on the 22nd of July 2016!
