Lake Annecy house description

3 bedroom house with views (from master bedroom and lounge balcony) of the lake and mountains in the most charming village on Lake Annecy.

Our cosy home in 'Talloires' village sleeps 6 (1 queen - 1 double - 1 twin room) and is fitted with all mod cons (including WiFi). 5 minutes walk from the picturesque lake (no driving necessary!!), bay and village, our terrace receives the last of the summer rays... A perfect place to sip a cool glass of fabulous french Rose wine after a perfect day on the lake or in the mountains! Surrounded by the French Alps, there are activities galore - truly something for everyone!

If you love nature and being in the great outdoors - then you must visit Lake Annecy! Lake Annecy is to France what 'Queenstown' is to New Zealand ie. an activity mecca. Talloires is close to all winter and summer activities.

Talloires has a serviced beach at the lake which is a paying beach during the summer (Euros 2.50 per person). With a toddler pool, changing rooms, lifeguards, swimming pontoon, kids lake slide, dive board and more. The beach bar has a great view and serves great pizzas from the restaurant above. The main dining room upstairs is good value. You will need to reserve a table if your wish to dine on the terrace as it is very popular during the summer months. There is also the bay with its famous hotel and fine dining restaurants (some are rather costly!), where you can rent pedalos, water-ski, surf-ski etc, plus other village cafes/bistros.

The Village:
With a fabulous boulangerie, a supermarket, post office, ferry to Annecy town and around the lake, water-sking/boat rental etc... some days you simply do not need to leave the village!. You quickly get to know the shopkeepers and people of the village when staying for a while, which is quite unique when on holiday.

The local tourist office is a great place for all local information and the village also has a post office and medical doctor.

There really is something for everyone when staying at our house - fine dining, casual eats, beach for family, sunbathing, adrenaline sports, cycling, hiking, sightseeing, touring, skiing (winter), water sports etc...you name it, it is here!

A reliable bus services from outside the house takes you to Annecy town as well as the ferry.

The Bike Path:

My husband first fell in love with the Alps when he went cycling there in 2007. I am more of a recreational cyclist and find the bike trail (6km away from the house) the perfect place to ride.

In fact, Talloires provides the perfect launch pad for all your cycling ambitions, big and small - from a family day out on the fantastic (& safe) bike path to following in the footsteps of the Tour de France on the numerous Cols in the area.

The bike path is 40km long and starts in Annecy and ends in Ugine. Here you see families young and old cycling along with sport professionals. You can also roller-blade and run along the path. The bike path is currently being expanded around the whole lake - meaning you can cycle a total of 40 km without going on the road!

Hiking/Walking:

I love to hike and there are some great hikes directly accessed from behind the house (the view of the Lake from St. Germain Church is much worth the hike!). You can also hike to a lovely waterfall directly from the house.

The mountain tops are a short drive away and there is great hiking for all levels of ability/fitness from the front door.

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About: We are a British family living in Singapore. We have spent much of our adult life living in Asia, and although this has been a valuable experience (and where we met)... we both yearn for the day when our business and family are ready to move to the lake and alps! We bought our house in Talloires in 2009 after falling in love with the area on two previous holidays. My husband (Adam) and myself (Ann) run a business that 'promotes conscious living'. I work with the individual teaching yoga and pilates and Adam works with businesses promoting sustainability and eco ethics. Therefore the importance and inspiration of natural beauty and nature is vital to us both and the upbringing of our son. It is difficult to describe how lovely Lake Annecy is (even with pictures), and the village of Talloires is a lovely community, too. We intend moving to Talloires in a few years time, when our family is complete, and our house gives us a lot of reassurance that our dream is always just around the corner.

                  Why Lake Annecy:
                  We love nature and being in the great outdoors. This area is absolutely perfect for this. Adam (my husband) first fell in love with the Alps when he went cycling there with his brother in 2007, and it has been his dream to have the world's best cycling on his doorstep ever since! I am more of a recreational cyclist and find the bike trail (6km away) the perfect place to ride and enjoy being outside as well as great hiking from right behind the house. Easily accessible from Geneva airport, when we drive down and glimpse the first view of the lake and mountains I feel this wave of relaxation and relief... my heart simply melts with the sheer freedom of space, the majestic alps, the shimmering lake and I cannot wait to take a deep lung full breathe of fresh air (I have lived in Asia too long!!). The mountain tops are a short drive away and there is great hiking for all levels of ability/fitness from the front door as well as water sports in the summer. It is a fantastic location for an active (or relaxed) family holiday with something for everyone! Friends and family from 1 year old to 80 years old have a super time in the area!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our top 10 favourite things to do: 1. Walking down to the local Boulangerie (tucked in the corner opposite the ‘Tabac’)…to buy delicious bread and croissants. 2. Hike up to the St. Germain church for GREAT views of the lake. The path can be found directly opposite the end of the driveway. You will see a little wooden sign saying “St. Germain” (you can also take the free shuttle bus up there from the village). 3. Hike directly up the road behind the house and onto the trial for the waterfall. Half way up you can access a few paths. To get close to the waterfall you will need to do a little rock climbing, so wear good shoes! 4. Cycle on the cycle path. Start the path at Doussard - 6 km from the house. Rent bikes opposite the house and cycle to the path, or, drive around to Doussard Marina and take the road opposite to hire bikes directly on the path. 5. Rent kayaks down in the bay and Kayak over the lake to look at the mini chateaux. 6. Take a ferry in to Talloires for lunch/shop – ferry back. 7. A sun downer beer and pizza at the bar on Talloires beach. 8. Swimming in the Bay – lapping the boats at anchor. Swimming in the lake anytime! 9. Great for kids: walking 2 km to the beach at Angon (easy access to the lake – plus a stream to play in) 10. Driving to La Clusaz on a clear day and taking in the fantastic views at the top of the cable car (mont blanc is clearly visable on a clear day).
