About the property

Apartment in Duingt, Lake Annecy, Haute Savoie - On Lake Annecy Shore With Spectacular Views and Lake Access

Le Pavillon du Lac, set on the shores of Lake Annecy, enjoys private lake access for secluded swimming and water fun, and great views of the Alps and lake from its two large balconies. Located on the second floor, this spacious 58 square metre one bedroom apartment is ideal for a couple. The apartment is situated in the pretty village of Duingt on the eastern side of the lake some 10km south of the historic town of Annecy. Duingt has been listed in the book 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France' as one of the most beautiful villages in France. It has a boulangerie and a newsagent (4 mins walk from the property), three restaurants and boat hire. The Annecy to Albertville bicycle path passes within 20m to the rear of the property. Duingt is a stopping point (250m from apartment) for the foot passenger ferry that sails between Annecy and several locations around the lake (in season only).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic week. The apartment was lovely and there was so much to do there, what a fantastic location. The lake was very refreshing and much needed as it got quite hot and the sun was very strong. We miss the local bakery a lot - we carried a bag full of croissants and pain au chocolates back on the plane for friends and family! Jane and Andy Herts.

We had a really good holiday. We loved the apartment with it's stunning views and admired the way you had furnished it. It was enjoyable being able to relax and look out at the lake. The information you had provided proved most useful and we followed a number of your suggestions for excursions. One place nearby which we particularly enjoyed was Talloires. On our final night we were able to stand on the balcony and watch a firework display and concert, grand finale! Geoff and Ruth Herts

Lake Annecy and surronding countryside was beautiful - you have chosen a lovely part of the world. Diane and Joe Queensland, Australia.

Well-equipped apartment in superb location

  • 5 of 5

Duingt is a small, charming lakeside village within easy reach of Annecy. The apartment (second floor) enjoys a superb view of this magnificent lake of which you will never tire. The surrounding air is fresh and clean and the lake water is the purest you will ever see in a lake of this size. Swimming and watersports are first-rate. The apartment has a large main room and combined kitchenette and is adequately equipped. Thoroughly recommended.

Wonderful Lake View

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was mid-November. We expected fall to be moving to winter. We were greeted with rain and beautiful snow on the mountains. Coming from southern California, it was a treat to see the snow just across the lake. In LA its on the mountains miles away. The apartment was comfortable. Matched the photos. We enjoyed exploring the lake area without the summer crowds. Annecy is a very walkable place to explore. The Duingt boulangerie was the favorite of our 12 week/12 village tour of France.

Apartment with outstanding views.

  • 3 of 5

A basic but comfortable apartment, but what outstanding views greet you from every window.We were there for 10 days in October when the night temperature dropped low but found we were very comfortable and did not need the heating. The cooking facilities were good enough for the two of us to cook good meals on. The area has lots to offer, something for everyone both young and old. A day out to Chamonix is a must for all for the trip to the top for views of Mont Blanc and the art gallery in Grenoble was another delight.

Superb in every way !

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at Pavillion du Lac and we loved every second. The apartment is comfortable with everything you need for a home from home stay away. Setting up the arrangements was, as last time, incredibly straightforward. The views are simply stunning and the apartment in a great location: a quiet but vibrant village on the southern end of the lake with everything you need a very short distance away. I defy anyone not to enjoy themselves here.

Great stay in Duingt

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay in Duingt. Everything in the apartment was as described. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and in great location with fabuluos views . Secure parking and private access to the bathing area at the lake are a great bonus. The village is quiet and we liked that there were no big crowds of holidaymakers in the vicinity. The hustle and bustle of Annecy town is within easy reach by car or boat ferry when one needs it.

Many resorts. La Clusaz is nearby and very good
Car: recommended

Le Pavillon du Lac enjoys access to a private swimming area in the crystal clear waters of the lake via an exclusive foot tunnel under the road between the apartment and the lake. At the private access point the water becomes deep quickly so may not be suitable for younger children. Lake Annecy has been referred to as Europe's cleanest lake and is often described as the most beautiful lake in France. Circled by stunning mountains, it's a great base for year round mountain sports, as well as a great variety of water sports.

The main Annecy to Albertville road, which can be busy at times, runs between the apartment and the lake.


Geneva International - 58 km - approx. 1 hour. Lyon airport is approx 1hour 30 minutes. You can also fly to Grenoble and Chambery although these may only be available during the ski season. Easyjet fly to Geneva from Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, Edinburgh and Glasgow and to Lyon from Gatwick, Stansted and Edinburgh. RyanAir fly to Genoble from Stansted (ski season only). The nearest railway is Annecy. Eurostar from St. Pancras International, Ebsfleet or Ashford to Paris and TGV to Annecy.


Annecy - 10kms. Doussard - 5kms. Geneva - 55kms.

Further Details:

Duingt - a charming village with rustic Savoyard character. Boulangerie, newsagent (English papers in summer), cafe and three restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. Supermarkets and restaurants for all food tastes can be found within a short drive. There are several local outdoor markets to visit in the neighbouring villages and in Annecy itself. These markets are a must to enjoy the atmosphere of Haute Savoie and to sample some regional produce. Duingt is also the home of three chateaux, one is in ruins but Chateau de Ruphy (11th century) and Chateau de Dhere (15th century) are inhabited.

Annecy - a beautiful medieval town with lots of character, cobbled streets and picturesque waterways, is some 10 km up the lake from Duingt. Often referred to as the 'Venice of the Alps', Annecy provides a wide range of shops, including art and antique shops, and has many restaurants for tourists to sample the cuisine of Haute Savoie. You can get there by car, bus, bike or by the foot passenger ferry that sails (in the Summer months) between Annecy and several locations around the lake, including Duingt.

The lake provides a wide variety of watersport from swimming, sailing, and water ski-ing to windsurfing, boating, canoeing and pedalos. Tourist boat rides, around the lake, are available in season. The mountains beyond provide stunning scenery as well as ski-ing, mountain biking, walking, climbing, luge-runs, parasailing, handgliding, canyoning and adventure high-wire.

The Annecy to Albertville cycle path passes within 20m of the rear of the apartment. Providing 36 kms of car-free cycle path on a former railway line running down the eastern side of the lake, the path offers some super views of the lake and access to many quiet side roads allowing the easy use of bikes to explore the surrounding countryside and the many quaint villages and picnic spots. There are a number of bike shops in the vicinity.

Tennis courts are availabe in the immediate area.
