'Les Tourterelles Annecy'

NOTE: The price includes 1 free covered parking space, WiFi, linen, towels and cleaning.

'Les Tourterelles Annecy' is an OVO Network property and couldn't be better placed for visiting the stunning medieval town of Annecy. Set in the historic walls, this 4 star first-floor apartment dating back to 1700 was part of a former convent and is less than a minute's walk from the famous Palais de l'Île, the castle and the lake. Everything you could need is right on your doorstep - cafes, bars and restaurants, a huge variety of unique shops, lakeside beaches and cycle trails. Pick up delicious cheese, chocolates and other local produce at the markets, which take place three times a week, rummage through dusty antique and book shops or just explore the cobbled streets and canals that criss-cross this Venice of the Alps. There's also a popular flea market, on the last Saturday of the month, which is worth a visit. Annecy is just four hours from Paris by train,

There's also a popular flea market, on the last Saturday of the month, which is worth a visit. Annecy is just four hours from Paris by train, and less than 30 minutes from Geneva airport, so it's perfect for a short break, but if you can, make time to explore the lakeside villages and the mountains that surround them.

An unassuming wooden door in the medieval walls of Annecy gives no hint of the charming apartment that lies beyond. 'Les Tourterelles Annecy' is a first-floor apartment that sleeps four in two double bedrooms (the beds can be arranged as doubles or twins). It has been sensitively refurbished and we have restored the high ceilings and teamed a mixture of modern and antique furniture with chandeliers and Swedish wallpapers to create a restful and welcoming home. The sunny dining kitchen overlooks the cobbled street and the steps to the chateau, as does the separate living room, where you can relax in front of the television, or people-watch from the large windows. The fireplace provides ambience, while underfloor heating keeps the whole apartment cosy. In the summer, the thick stone walls and the interior shutters keep the rooms refreshingly cool. The main bedroom has a walk-in dressing room and an en suite bathroom with a roll-top bath, with a washing machine and tumble drier in a separate space. The second bedroom has a wash basin, with a separate shower room and toilet. Both bedrooms have views across the tiled roofs of the old quarter of the town. The apartment is sound-insulated, there is an integrated system for TV, music, films and phone and wifi throughout the apartment.

Please Note: Bookings are for 2 nights minimum. There is an additional 50 euro charge, payable on arrival, for arrivals after 19:00

Location description from owner

The Rhône-Alpes region

Great skiing less than an hour from your town centre apartment

A town apartment may not seem the obvious choice for a winter holiday, but Annecy's Alpine location puts it at the heart of several resorts that offer fabulous skiing. Semnoz is just 20 minutes away, and a 30-minute drive will bring to the Aravis resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, where 220km of pistes offer challenges for skiers of all abilities. The resorts also offer plenty of scope for cross-country skiers and snowshoe walkers. At the end of a day in the mountains, enjoy an evening in one of the many bars or restaurants in this medieval town - apres-ski doesn't come much better than this! (please note there is no storage space for skis inside the apartment, but there are many ski hire shops in the resorts.) In December, the whole town gets the festive spirit, with fairy lights, Christmas markets, concerts and an ice rink. Towards the end of the ski season in March, Annecy plays host to a Venetian carnival, when hundreds of masked and costumed figures parade around the cobbled streets and bridges posing for photographs. It's a sight not to be missed.

Annecy

Relax on a lakeside beach, take a boat trip or explore the canals and quays . . .

A romantic city steeped in history, fine dining, boutique shopping, watersports, mountain activities and picturesque villages to explore - Annecy in summer has something for everyone. Book a short break at Les Tourterelles and you can explore the flower-decked streets and canals, the castle, and the 12th century Palais de l'Île. Watch the world go by over a coffee in a street cafe, take a cruise on the lake, or pick up some local specialities at the Sunday food market. If you've a little more time and energy, enjoy a round of golf or hire bikes and cycle the 40km route around the lake. The more energetic might prefer to tackle the mountain routes which often feature in the Tour de France. (Please note there is no storage space for bikes inside the apartment. There is however a great bike hire shop with late opening hours virtually next door.) Annecy is the parapente centre of France and it's an adrenalin-filled way to get a different perspective on the city. As the summer turns to autumn, the city celebrates the return of the animals from the pasture (Retour des Alpages) - local produce is the star of this festival, when the streets are packed with folk bands, food stalls and cows. Other dates for your diary are the Festival International du Film d'Animation - an animation festival that was originally part of the Cannes film festival - and the Lake Annecy marathon in April. Even if you're not running, it's a great spectacle and the atmosphere in the town is buzzing! Whether you are looking for a romantic break, a shopping weekend with friends or an active family holiday, Annecy is the perfect destination.
