Overview

About the property

Apartment in Duingt, Annecy, Haute Savoie, French Alps - The French Refer to this Type of Property as "Pieds Dans L'eau" Literally Meaning Feet in the Water!

This spacious two bedroom apartment, overlooks Lake Annecy. It is set in it's own private grounds with a small lawn and private access to the Lake. It has two adult bicycles, to use on the nearby cycle lane. The village of Duingt and the bakery is a five minute walk away. There are also restaurants and a cafe in Duingt. Les Libellules is also a short walk to the jetty for the boat taxi that goes around the lake in the Summer months. This is also a convenient way to travel into the town of Annecy. You can swim in Lake Annecy from the private area in front of the apartment. There are steps leading down into the lake, which is very clean and beautiful to swim in. The cycle lane has been built on an old railway line and stretches from Annecy old town down to Ugine which is some 40 kilometres. The cycle path is generally flat but can be quite busy in the Summer months. There are pedalos and motor boats nearby for hire in the Summer months.

About Ann & Peter Fitzpatrick

Ann and Peter reside in Tunbridge Wells in Kent, but were originally from Lancashire. They have two adult children and two dogs. Both work but try to spend as much time as possible in both the Savoie and Haute Savoie. The family are keen skiers.

Ann & Peter Fitzpatrick purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Ann & Peter Fitzpatrick chose Annecy - Lake Annecy area

We have spent many journeys travelling from Geneva Airport to the ski resorts beyond Albertville and used to pass the deserted Les Libellules Hotel. In 2007 we decided we would like to buy a property in Annecy and were amazed to find that we could afford to purchase this apartment. We looked at many properties but the view of the lake drew us back to this one. We enjoy this property very much, the height of the lounge ceiling gives an airey spacious feel to the place. The cycle path nearby is an added bonus.

What makes this apartment unique

The location on the lake is stunning. This is one of the few apartment blocks literally situated on the lake. When you come back to the apartment after a day out, you can sit on the balcony and enjoy the views of the lake. The children immediately want to go back in the lake to swim in front of the apartment, which keeps them happy. The nearby cycle path is a great way to get around the area and we use the bikes to get to the local restaurants via the cycle path. It is hard to describe the clean, fresh feeling of this location. The sunny mornings with the lake flat calm is great to experience. The local village bakery has a speciality bread called "Bucheron" which translates as woodcutter. It is a dark brown malty bread with nuts and is fantastic - watch though as eating this with butter and the pounds pile on !

Notes:
Small print or not so small! Please note the apartment and the balcony is on the main road by the lake so there is road noise, hence the reduction in the price from other similar properties. The curved staircase within the apartment is quite steep and narrow, so may not be suitable for young children or adults who are not too sure on their feet. Please note that my mother who is arthritic and over eighty managed the stairs well. The second floor is only 6ft 3 high, so mind your head if you are tall! The bedrooms look out over the road towards the cycle path. You can also hire from the housekeeper 1 bath sheet and 1 towel for 7 euros per week. Please let us know if you require this. Outside: The balcony has metal railings, that have horizontal rails, so please note for those who have very young children. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: The bed linen is changed once per week. Hand towels ONLY are included. It is the client's responsibility to leave the apartment clean, NB if this is not the case then the cost of the additional cleaning will be deducted from the security deposit

If you want lakeside - this is the one!

  • 5 of 5

Super, well equipped duplex spacious apartment right by the lake with private access for swimming etc and balcony and lawned areas for sunbathing.

Friendly owners who clearly go to some trouble to ensure their clients have a great time.

Highly recommended!

Wonderful lakeside apartment - very family friendly

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Annecy and as a family of five, Peter and Ann's apartment was perfect for us. We wanted easy access to the lake which this has - we spent hours swimming in the lake and jumping from the pontoon. The grassy area is small and we didn't really use that but the balcony from the apartment looks over the (slippy!) steps so any sunbathing can also be from there.

The apartment has wonderful large windows with a (slightly obscured) view to the lake. It has all you might need and more - from a well stocked kitchen to games and even a small dinghy at the time! The road alongside has to be mentioned - through the day and a little at night,it has a steady flow of traffic with noisy motorbikes and lorries. It was very obvious at first but we did get used to it and the many positives outweighed that.

The bakery is a 10 minute walk either through the village or along the cycle track. The boat stop to catch the around lake boat is a 5 minute walk. There are restaurants in walking distance. The location in Duingt, partway down the lake felt ideal for access to different lake side places.

When we arrived we were met by the very helpful Bev and the apartment was clean and welcoming. We would certainly recommend this flat and love to go back.

Great apartment right on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

From booking to arrival and departure the process was very smooth.

The owners and the lady who met us at the apartment were great.

The apartment has everything you need and more for a great holiday.

The kitchen is very well equipped and there are lots of things to help you enjoy your time on the lake including a small dinghy and fishing rods.

If the weather is not being kind there are lots of games and DVD's to keep you entertained.

There is a small barbeque on the terrace which was useful.

With four kids in tow the wi-fi was great to have.

All in all a great apartment in a stunning location.

Beautifully located well equipped lakeside apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views in most all directions. Thats Lake d'Annecy

Noisy road right outside but you can't say you weren't warned

Duingt a charming small village with super boulangerie

Brilliant walks nearby. Busy but top notch cycle path 50 yards away.

2 weeks in July 2017 not enough to explore the delights of the area.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could want for a perfect holiday. The apartment was clean and well equipped . The location really couldn't be better with private access to the lake and the cycle path literally over the road. The small village of Duingt is only a few minutes walk and has a boulangerie plus a few restaurants. Next town along is only a short cycle ride and has a supermarket if you need supplies for cooking plus more restaurants if you're not wanting to cook on holiday. Thoroughly recommended !
