About the property

FR19780

Architect-designed and beautifully renovated to the highest standards, this stunning chalet overlooks Lake Annecy.

We have chosen a modern, light, Scandinavian feel with huge windows and terraces overlooking the lake to make the most of the spectacular views. White walls, muted colours, oak floors and polished concrete create a minimalist yet cosy interior.

The Luxury Villa is available July and August only. The Garden Flat is available year-round.. If you have a large group (14-16 people) and would like to rent the Villa and Garden Flat together in July or August 2018, please contact us.

Please note that while the two properties share a driveway, they have separate entrances and terraces, and have been carefully designed with both parties' privacy in mind.

Le Ban de la Roche is two minutes walk from the centre of the village and Lake Annecy.

Talloires is a typical little French village with a lot of character! It's a paradise for nature, sports and food lovers.

Set on the lake but with woods and mountains just behind, it offers a huge range of exciting activities including water-sports, paragliding, canyoning, hiking, mountain-biking, road-biking. A 42 km cycle path goes around the entire lake.

Talloires beach is a great spot to relax and enjoy the lake. Kids love the paddling pool, slide into the lake, children's pool, diving board and swimming platform.

A range of restaurants will keep you entertained in the evening from the Savoyarde on the beach with its amazing views and delicious pizzas, to ultimate gourmet and romantic dining experiences at Michelin-starred chef Jean Sulpice’s Auberge de Pere Bise and the more traditional Hotel de l’Abbaye.

Talloires is 14km from the beautiful medieval town of Annecy, known as the Venice of the Alps. Annecy has a direct rail link to Paris. Buses, boats and water-taxis link Annecy to Talloires.

Talloires is 45 minutes from Geneva airport.

About Felicity Fallon

We are an English couple with 3 little girls aged 9-4. We have been living in France for 16 years. We moved to the Annecy area 6 years ago and love it - especially the lake in the Summer and skiing in Winter. It's a great base for exploring the Alps and offers so many outdoors activities for children.

Felicity Fallon purchased this house in 2011

Why Felicity Fallon chose Talloires

We were looking for a house in the Lake Annecy area that was walking distance from a village as we did not want to have to get in the car every time we needed to go somewhere. This house was perfect as it is within walking distance of the lake, the children's school and the centre of the village.

What makes this house unique

We love the views of the lake and mountains from the house. The view changes constantly throughout the day depending on the weather and never fails to take our breath away. We also love the privacy and peace offered by the large enclosed garden.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"A fab week skiing thanks. We found the range of local resorts perfect for our boys (9, 7 and 4). Much less stressy than the big resorts! Plus not buying a whole week's ski pass meant that we could enjoy a couple of days just relaxing or exploring Annecy. Weather couldn't have been better."



"It is absolutely beautiful and the position of your house is amazing. I have already recommended it several times. The journey back was also very good and straight forward."







GUEST FEEDBACK FOR THE HOUSE (SUMMER RENTAL ONLY)



"We are having a great time - enjoying your house in its lovely setting (to include swimming in the lake)"



"We have had a fantastic week thank you. Enjoyed the stunning views and the accommodation was ideal and comfortable for everyone. House details were helpful and informative - particularly liked the suggested trips...Many thanks. A most enjoyable celebration of my 75th birthday!"



"Everything is wonderful. We love your house and are having a great time walking and cycling."

Further Details:

A short walk away, Talloires beach is ideal for relaxing and taking in the amazing views. The cleanest lake in Europe, people generally swim in it from May until September/October (wet suit required the rest of the year!).

The village itself is very picturesque, with a small supermarket, local produce market in the Summer and sprinkling of craft shops. It has a range of restaurants including the Michelin-starred Auberge du Pere Bise, an authentic brasserie in the village and a good value pizza restaurant on the beach.

Lake Annecy offers most water-sports, from water-skiing to wake-boarding and paddle-boarding. You can also hire sailing and motor boats, pedalos and kayaks.

Next to the mini-golf, the local bike hire shop rents road and mountain bikes. Visitors can cycle all the way round the lake (takes 2-3 hours) or tackle some of the local cols. Children's bikes, bike seats and tandems are available.

Talloires also has a tennis court, available for hire by the hour.

Talloires is famous for paragliding. Beginners can do a tandem jump with an instructor. If you want yet more adrenaline, you can also try canyoning and scuba-diving.

40 minutes from the Alpine ski resorts of La Clusaz and 1h30 from Chamonix, Talloires is also a great location for mountain-lovers. Footpaths behind the house lead all the way up to the top of La Tournette, the highest mountain around Lake Annecy.

In the Summer a ferry takes you across the lake into Annecy (also known as the Venice of the Alps). Very pretty, Annecy has museums, great restaurants and many independent shops.

We live in the main house 11 months of the year and are happy to advise on activities and local attractions. However, we are also very good at keeping our distance if you just want to take it easy and work things out yourself.

If you have young children and would like to go out to dinner in the evening, we are happy to listen to a baby monitor or organise a local babysitter for you.

  • 5 of 5

We took older children (10, 14, 17 and 25 year olds) to this house and it worked perfectly. The house and garden are large and the terrace with lake views perfect day or night. The youngsters enjoyed being able to walk down to Talloires beach with its day and evening activities. You need a car and we took bikes and a boat for a very active week but you can also hire these things. The house is clean and comfortable with all the amenities you would expect. We liked the fact that it is a recent acquisition and the decor is old fashioned. We found it a relaxing place to be and would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah, Thanks for taking the time to review our house. We are delighted that you had a good time. Yes, the "vintage" wallpaper is quite a talking point with all our visitors - but we have grown to love it! We are currently renovating the ground floor of the house and as of January 2014 we will have a 2-bedroom garden flat to rent, available either with the main house or separately. Best wishes, Felicity
