About allison whiteley

Hi we are Allison and Mick Whiteley and we have two girls. We fell in love with Annecy in 2004. We purchased our apartment in 2005 and try to get out there as much as possible. We fell in love with the view from our apartment and feel it is our piece of paradise. We love swimming in the lake and walking down to Talloires. Boat trips are another favourite as well as paragliding which we had experienced.Our favourite restaurant is Bora Bora which does great burgers for the children and has a great atmosphere. The Flowers is also exceptional. In the winter we ski at La Clusaz which we love. It has plenty of routes to challenge us but also enables us to ski as a family. We hope that anyone who rents our apartment falls in love with area and enjoys it as much as we do.

allison whiteley purchased this apartment in 2005

Why allison whiteley chose Talloires

Summer and Winter use.

The apartment is fully equiped and means that your stay will be comfortable and hassle free. Having a garden means there is an area for children to play or to relax in the sunloungers.

What makes this apartment unique

The main benefit of the apartment are the views of lake Annecy and the surrounding mountains. Most days these views are enhanced by the spectacle of paragliders coming in to land at the landing field below the apartment

The apartment is a home from home with satellite TV sunloungers, sledges in the winter, tassimo machine for lovely coffee and very comfortable beds

Lake Annecy apartment with wonderful views situated in Talloires

Nice apartment with a fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent week in Talloires. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. The view is wonderful. Lying in bed seeing snow topped mountains does your soul good.

We particularly enjoyed walking down from the house to the Roc de Chere nature reserve, walking through the woods to a viewpoint looking down the lake, then down to Talloires for lunch by the lake before working off the dessert on the way back to the apartment.

The apartment is not far from the road which was busy on the weekend when we arrived but it quietened down after the weekend and was more than compensated for by the view.

Annecy old town is lovely, a boat trip on the lake is recommended and walking to a local waterfall was fantastic.

All in all a brilliant vacation.

Wonderful Location, Great Views

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this apartment for a number of years now. location is fantastic, close to lake and local villages. Annecy is only 15 minutes by car. in summer you can relax by the lake or go paragliding or visit the fab market in Annecy centre. We purchased a tandem paraglide for a birthday present for our son. It was a great surprise and a brilliant idea. We never tired of just sitting in the garden in the evening, enjoying a nice glass of wine and watching the paragliders overhead. We enjoyed skiing in La Clusaz during a winter trip. the slopes were appropriate for all the family and the apres ski was most enjoyable as well.

Wonderful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Arrived late at night so woke up next day to the views across the lake which are amazing. Property was clean tidy and well equipped. Annecy is a short drive away with many facilities. The lake was unbelievable with the clearest water I have ever seen. I would recommend staying there for a peaceful relaxing break
