The Owner purchased this apartment in 1976
I was born and raised in Annecy
Fabulous biking with bike path and mountain road, swimming in the crystal clear pure water of the lake, skiing in close by ski resort, from the little family mountain to internationally famous places.
This apartment had everything we needed for a terrific stay--and Annecy couldn't have been more lovely. Henri is a terrific host!
We enjoyed staying here over the summer.
Great location, center of the city, and close to the lake.
Would love to go back again.
We rented the appartment for 6 weeks (mid July-end of August). For years we waited for the opportunity to spend the summer months away from the hot and humid weather of Tel Aviv. We chose Annecy as our refuge and Henri's appartment as our home.
We can honestly declare that it was the perfect choice!
Annecy is the holiday-maker's dream come true. We suggest you read all the previous reviews as every word about the town and the appartment is perfectly true.
The appartment's location is definitly ideal. Simply the best location one could wish for in order to enjoy the town's charms without the need to use a vehicle at all - everything can be reached by foot while enjoying the beautiful streets, old-town allies and beautiful scenery.
The appartment exceeded our expectations in all respects and my wife actually fell in love with it.
It is cosy, well-maintained, fully furnished and equipped and we felt at home right from the moment we walked through the door for the first time, upon arrival from Geneva.
Henri was in touch with us all along. Whenever we needed any kind of advice or assistance, all we had to do was contact him (phone or mail) and he would immediately be there for us with answers, suggestions and practical advice. In one case, he even sent a cousin of his to assist us in person!
At a certain stage, I had to travel back home, but my wife stayed on her own till the end of the rental period, without any concerns at all. She felt comfortable and safe all along, knowing she could rely on Henri's assistance with no hesitation.
Having quite a rich experience of living abroad and mainly in France, we can recommend Annecy and Henri's appartment full heartedly to anyone who wishes to spend a perfect holiday in the French Alps.
As for attractions in the area - come and watch the fantastic Tour de France that always passes in the viscinity, or cycle yourselves using a rented VTT (all-terrain bicycle) around the lake, like we did...
As our title suggests, it was a dream come true, in every respect.
If you do not have a car it is ideally located near Old Town, lake, and shopping (farmers market), if you do, it's like any city - feed the meter or underground city garage (100 meters away).
There are car rentals, train station & bus within a couple block radius.
That said it has great views out all the windows. Mountains & city.
The home feels lived in with everything you need & the neighbors are very polite if you see them at all.
Its on my short list of places to revisit.
The Haute Savoi will speak for it's self!

We stayed in this great apartment over the Christmas break of 2010. Both the apartment and Annecy itself exceeded our expectations. Henri's condo is very neat and extremely charming. I think it represents the life style in Rhone Alpes and Savoy part of France perfectly. It is right in the middle of everything! The apartment is very spacious, with two large bedrooms, large living/family room, large kitchen, and very big foyer. It is equipped with all modern amenities a person could desire. But, of course, this is not the only reason why people go to France. It is the culture, the cusine, the history, the people... Annecy is absolutely adorable and definitely one of the "not-to-miss" places. It has everything: medieval cobble streets, beautiful old buildings, canals, a chateau, mountain views, great lake, great food, shopping, and simply ... unmistakebly irrestible French charm. Overall, we had a great time in Annecy and Henri's apartment is perfect place to stay in while exploring beautiful Rhone Alpes and Savoy regions
My family of 4 stayed at this lovely apartment while attending the International Film Festival in June 2010. We had the wonderful experience of meeting the apartment owner, Henri, when we arrived. He is charming and has great stories about growing up in Annecy. The location is perfect - quiet and a short walk to the lake and even closer to the amazing street market. The apartment is cozy and comfortable. It is well furnished and the kitchen is well equipped so you have everything you need for a visit to this adorable town at a great price. Would definitely stay here again!
