Bedrooms 5
Half Baths1
Space 25,000 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

5 1/2 Bedrooms + 2 living rooms + terrace, 2 full Bathrooms+1 shower,(Sleeps 12)

- 'Family house de charme' :3 mn walk from the lake, beach and mountain hike trails; 3 mn walk from the village center (shops and restaurants)

- You will enjoy breakfast in the sun in the garden, lunch in the shade of beautiful huge trees along the cool river, diner on the large and protected terrace with a beautiful view on the lake.

- Your days and nights will profit from the calmness of the area. You will be able to reach most activities safely walking on streets with very limited traffic.

- You will be renting the house of a family of 5 who loves quality of relationships, the charm of houses with roots and the practice of sports: Conviviality, cocooning, simplicity, easy connections have been the spirit of the remodeling of the house. (The house was initially a 18th century farm; In 1910, a luxury lake villa was added; We modernized the house in 2003)

Ideal to rest and for outdoors activities: The village is a summer vacation resort with a supermarket, numerous restaurants and hotels, some antique, art and specialty stores. A very quiet area, built in the XIIth century around an Abbaye, on the lake in a protected bay. Great for a rewarding rest.

It is also a paradise for people who love outside activities. Within a radius of 1 to 5 miles you find an incredible array of activities either linked to nearby mountains (hiking, canyoning, rock-climbing, paragliding, biking) or to the lake (beach activities, swimming, water skiing, sailing, tennis). Two golfs, one in Talloires, one in Giez are 15mn drive away.

A tradition is to bike around the lake - 41 km . (2/3 of the tour is presently equipped with a cycling trail).

An interesting area for tourism and shopping : - Annecy is a beautiful town (the Venice of the Alpes with an interesting old town and castle). Easy to access by car, bus or boat service.

- Geneva, Switzerland with its international and luxury shopping streets, watch and art museum is one hour highway car drive.

- The stupendous Chamonix nestled under the MontBlanc, with its fantastic views, gondola rides, beautiful hikes is also one hour highway drive away.

The pleasures of a French Alps country house: We are a family from the area and in love with its Alpine culture. We have remolded the house for our own pleasure in the most convivial setting possible to allow happiness, rest and fun.

Luxury family house 'de charme' in the resort village of Talloires, lake Annecy
average rating of 4.962963 based on 27 reviews

Huge property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Annecy, the house is located in a perfect location to enjoy all the activities available in the area. It has a huge amount of space with large garden and ample off road parking. The owner Bruno is a very nice guy happy to help advise on what to do in the region or you are not familiar of what's on offer. We will make this area an annual holiday from now on.

Beautiful home in the center of Talloires

  • 5 of 5

We just recently stayed in this beautiful home in Talloires. We loved the charm, character, and history of the home. It was very large with many bedrooms, and plenty of space for larger families to enjoy. The view was gorgeous, and only a few steps to town and the water. We LOVE Talloires and will definitely return to this house in the future. I have nothing negative to say! The house was clean, comfortable, nicely furnished and well organized.

fantastic house , fantastic location, fantastic holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's holiday in the family house 'De Charme' and it certainly didn't disappoint !

The house oozes charm and comfort and is an excellent location to the beautiful Lac Annecy, just a few minutes walk away.

The house very easily soaked up our large party of 6 adults and 4 children and we still had a spare double bedroom unoccupied.

The out door terrace is a great place for alfresco dining.

The garden is large, pretty and well maintained.

Talloires is a beautiful village and the local amenities are all within a few minutes walk from the house.

Bruno is very approachable and very easy to contact. He has excellent knowledge on the local area for activities, restaurants etc. Nina is a top chief ! She catered for our daughters 12th birthday party , it was a delightful feast !

We'll be back, We just loved it ! Thank you Bruno.

Gorgeous property!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay! The house and location are so beautifully situated near Lac Annecy, just a few minutes walk to the water. The small town of Talloires is enchanting. Bruno was extremely pleasant and most accommodating, assuring our stay was perfect. The house is comfortably furnished and spacious, easily sleeping our party of 7, with room to spare. The garden is beautiful and private, allowing for family meals outside or leisurely swinging in the hammock. The kitchen is well stocked with essentials and a small market is located within a few minutes walk. The views from the house are breathtaking and I found myself enjoying them for hours, wanting to soak them in and take them home with me! If you have the opportunity, I highly recommend allowing Nina to cook for you. Her food is outstanding and she couldn't be more lovely. We enjoyed our stay so much, we found ourselves not wanting to leave the house. Thank you Bruno and Nina for your hospitality. We hope to visit again someday!

Mon meilleur week-end de l'année 2017 !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 jours dans cette magnifique maison. Elle est superbe, confortable, très grande avec un beau jardin, décorée avec goût. Tout fonctionne bien (électroménager, wifi), on s'est vraiment senti chez nous pendant notre séjour. L'emplacement est idéal à 5 minutes à pied du lac. On a même pu utiliser le kayak sur le lac. Talloires est un beau village avec les commerces à proximité (boulangerie élue meilleur sandwich 2016 + superette) et il y a une plage adaptée pour les familles (pelouse, plongeoir, ponton, terrain jeux, snack bar...). Enfin nous sommes à 15 minutes du col de la Forclaz (parapente, rando, vélo) et à 30 minutes d'Annecy donc emplacement idéal. Non seulement je recommande, mais surtout j'ai très envie de repartir là-bas !!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Bruno's house is amazing!

I visited the house in mid May with 7 friends to celebrate a 30th birthday. From the moment we arrived, we knew that we would have a great stay. The house is warm and welcoming and outfitted with whatever we needed. Despite some rain during our stay, we were comfortable spending time inside. Talloirs is small but offers a grocery store, bakery, cafe, and numerous outdoor activities.

Would absolutely come back to spend time here again!!
