garden apartment 200m to beach. Bikes and linens included.
Quiet, pleasant & ideal place to stay right on the lake which is beautiful, relaxing, & plenty for the family to do
The flat was ideal, modern, light and comfortable. It was great to have a garden to sit out in. The residential area is quiet and pleasant with tree lined walks along the river and lake. We were just round the corner from the water front where you can sit at cafes or walk along the promenade and enjoy views across the lake to the mountains. The municipal beach was also very close where we swam, jumped off the diving board and sat on the beach. The restaurant and bar were really good on the beach. There is sailing and water skiing and canoeing on the lake locally. We got the boat two stops into Annecy for the markets and shopping and toured right around the lake on the boat. The cycle path which runs the length of the lake is also very close, so we hired bicycles and cycled both ways, into Annecy and down to the bottom of the lake stopping at beaches and swimming. St Jorioz is small and clean and has good supermarkets and restaurants and is also very close to Semnoz mountain from which you have fabulous 360 degree views including Mont Blanc, summer tobogganing and winter skiing of course. With a car you can get right up into the Alps. We had a relaxed, easy, very enjoyable holiday with plenty to do without a car just using trains, buses, bikes and boats. We travelled to St Jorioz by train from Lyon but it is quicker to Geneva if you are flying. (Bus is ok to Geneva but bus station not near train station. Its easier by taxi if there are several of you to share the cost - shop around taxi fares vary). …
At the Chapel, renovated house VIEW mountains.
Fantastic property and location
most enjoyable stay. House was perfect and beautifully appointed. Sophie was hugely helpful and the area was outstanding for a sports keen family with the wonderful lake and fantastic cycling. Could not have been better and would recommend the house and the area heartily. …
