Your accommodation is equipped to a very high standard, including a kitchen that's as well equipped as our home in UK - with a Bosch dishwasher; microwave; oven/hob; fridge; washing machine and drier; pots, pans and serving dishes; matching crockery and cutlery etc etc. Our satellite TV includes Freeview UK channels including BBC, ITV and Channel 4 options; and there's a DVD player (and our library of DVDs and CDs). We have a large balcony with a view to Mt du Charbon (and outdoor furniture); and a basement garage (with a heated ramp to prevent icing in winter). An excellent supermarket, bank (with ATM), local shops, and Bar des 4 Chemins (excellent lunches!) all are only a 2 minute walk.

The pricing indicator includes all costs - not only rental of the apartment but also any "extras" that might be mentioned elsewhere in the text.

Further details outdoors

The large balcony (almost 12m2) is big enough for eating outdoors in the warm weather, and there are two deck-chairs for sun bathing. With the view to the south to Mt de Charbon, the sun shines onto the balcony from around lunchtime until sunset. Access to our front door is via a secure private entrance and a flight of stairs. There are three bicycles that you are welcome to use (at your own risk!) - the piste cyclable that runs the entire length of Lac d'Annecy is only 5 minutes ride from Residence les Gentianes.

Location description from owner

The Rhône-Alpes region

Doussard and Annecy are in the region of Haute Savoie. The nearest airports are Geneva to the north (that also has most flights in summer and in winter) and Chambery to the south (winter only). Having said that, Grenoble, Lyons and St Etienne airports to the south also are practical options.

Thnes is a charming market town 30 minutes to the east with excellent value restaurants and bars around its town square, and with speciality shops. The winter resort of La Clusaz is only 10-15 minutes further, with spectacular views and one of its cable cars leading to a summer luge.

Other ski resorts including Les Saisies and Megve are reachable. The Winter Olympic centre at Albertville is 25 minutes to the south. Courchevel is not much more than an hour, via the dual carriageway at Albertville. Chamonix is around an hour from Annecy by motorway, leading to the Mont Blanc Tunnel into Italy, so you can have lunch in Italy and be home for dinner.

LAigue du Midi is a spectacular platform including a shop and restaurant near the summit of Mont Blanc, accessible from Chamonix by cable car. The highest point in Europe that's accessible without having to climb!

Geneva, with its fashionable shopping and jet de leau on Lac Leman, is about an hour from Annecy. On another day, you can have lunch in Geneva or in one of the resorts along Lac Leman, and (again) be home in time for dinner. France, Italy and Switzerland in 2 days!

Doussard

Doussard is close to many activities for Summer holidays, and in Winter it's convenient for several ski-stations. Some Doussard addresses actually are a few minutes drive from the village itself, so we particularly like it that we can walk within a couple of minutes to good food shops including two supermarkets, the boulangerie and a charcuterie, Bar/Cafe/Brasserie Morgane; and to a summer market on Monday mornings

What's more, Appartment 1 is only a few minutes from the beach & port at Bout du Lac/Doussard. From May-Sept a water bus leaves three times daily for Annecy, for shopping, restaurants, history and theatre. By car Annecy is 25 minutes along the west side of the lake, and not much longer along the east side. (You can cycle between Doussard and Annecy on a dedicated cycle piste) As well as water sports on the lake, you can hang-glide with an instructor from Col de la Forclaz, above Talloires.

We are halfway between spectacular golf courses at Golf du lac d'Annecy (tel +33 4 50 60 12 89), and the 9 & 18-hole courses at Golf de Giez (www.golfdegiez.com) with its views of Mont Blanc and Lac d'Annecy. Each is about ten minutes away. In 2004 the Tour de France passed near to Doussard, and in 2009 a time trial circled the lake, passing Doussard.

Annecy is the regional centre, both modern and historical at the same time. It has department stores, speciality shopping and a modern shopping mall, not far from the Old Town where there is a huge choice of restaurants and bars by the canals. As well as the water omnibus that circumnavigates the lake, stopping at all six ports for hopping off and on around the lake, during the summer you can take tourist cruises and even have lunch or dinner on board the "Libellule".

The mountains above Lac d'Annecy are famous for para-gliding and there's an international competition in August. A popular landing area is at the sports pavilion on the edge of Doussard.

Visitors who have stayed during the winter have enjoyed being able to visit different ski-stations on different days, before visiting Annecy in the evenings for a wider choice of restaurants than is available in most ski resorts.

“Great stay all round.........”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2012

Had a great time at this lovely residence. Ideal for all sorts of activities - we managed walking, cycling, swimming and enjoying the local towns and villages and scenery. The property itself was really well equipped, very clean, spacious and well situated for local shops and bar/restaurants. The owner was very helpful, efficient and well organised.
