Bright, airy and lovely apartment. Good location and very quiet. Nice walks to go downtown and to the old part of Annecy. Good restaurants in the area and a bakery right at the foot of the apartment.

انا اخذت شقة من غرفتين ولموقع كان جيدا لكن مقارنة مع

السعر فهو احتيال محض لاني سكنت ل٥ ايام بمبلغ ثلاثة اشهر

انصح بها فقط اذا انقطعت بك السبل ولم تجد مكانا مناسبا

The location was nice but compared with the high price it is considered really bad experience.

The view also was nice but if you know nothing about the other places .

Other places was really fantastic and amazing.

I rally liked the facilities but not the internet.

The kitchen was fully prepared but a lot of exaggerating in numbers of cups and plates.

So many negatives

10- location

2- over prepration pf the kitchen

3-too small bath

4-small beds

5-no internet but only lies

6-no service

Very bad hotel

لا انصح به نهائيا خصوصا للعائلات التي لديها اطفال صغار

لا احد هذه الشقة اللا سعو عالي من دون خدمات او موقع او راحة

Owner's Response: The apartment was regrettably left in a total mess and we had to get many things fixed (shower, toilet, etc) which had been broken. We have an agency managing the apartment and all problems must be reported to them or to us. It is said that the internet did not work but when the agency checked, it was working . Clearly the guests did not understand something but it is to be wondered why they did not get in touch with the agency in charge for this and for all the problems they cited. As for the dishes, we provide many cups (10), a wide assortment of glasses as well as 8 big plates and 12 smaller ones, numerous bowls, etc. . Unless guests never wash dishes (even though a dishwasher is provided), we do not understand how it could be stated that there were not enough dishes. We do not agree on the guest’s statement on the location. Near Annecy’s city center, the apartment is very quiet and peaceful (no bars or restaurants next door) . It overlooks the Thiou river and has many playgrounds next to it. There is a delightful promenade to reach Annecy Old City following the river and canals. We strive to give the best possible quality and service to our clients. Unfortunately some renters mistake hotel and holiday rentals and expect daily maid and cooking services. If theses services are required, hotels are made for this. They can contact us and arrangements can be made for these services. We would not recommend such guests for vacation rentals but rather for hotels

Wonderful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Annecy. We loved the terrace at this apartment and found Sylvie to be so accommodating! A bit of a walk to the town center but a nice quiet place to stay at night.

Owner's Response: We are happy to see that you enjoyed the apartment. As stated, it is a 25 minute walk to downtown and a 15 minute walk to the old Annecy center. Also it depends on which way is take. The walk following the Thiou Promenade is splendid. The apartment is quiet since it is not near busy streets and features an indoor parking space.

Comfortable apartment, central location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is clean and light with a large outdoor wraparound balcony (perfect in the summer).

It accommodates 4 adults comfortably, though a lack of wardrobe space in one bedroom. The kitchen facilties are more than adequate - we managed to cook Christmas dinner.

Annecy old town, shops and the lake are within 15/20 minutes walk. Supermarkets and restaurants are also nearby.
