Christmas in Talloires
Gore Vidal said that the best view in the world was from the "Terrance of Infinity" in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast but that's because he had not visited this house in Talloires in December. As the cold sun comes up over the snow dusted mountains that surround Europe's cleanest lake, it is hard to imagine a view that is more captivating and priceless. God looked kindly on the French to award them with such a great setting.
We stayed for Christmas and New Year in this wonderful location in a house designed exactly for this festive purpose. We were a family of 10 across all ages with different interests and ways of passing our time - all of which are more than adequately catered for in this large spacious house. Facilities are good with a wide range of bedrooms - singles, doubles, twins and children's rooms. Bathrooms are spacious, modern and clean. Cooking in the kitchen is easy with good pots, pans, dishes and other utensils. Wifi is good and if you need it TV caters for all languages and tastes. We also borrowed the owners Christmas tree decorations for make the house festive and of course decorate the tree.
Philippe, the owner and Catherine, the property manager, are both very helpful and are on hand to make the stay easy and enjoyable. At one point we had a small issue with the plumbing and it took only 10 minutes for a qualified friendly French plumber to arrive. I wish i had this at home.
Talloires in winter is quiet with only one restaurant open but within 20 minutes there is plenty of choice. As we know Annecy well we were able to enjoy the festive mood of the city with lots going on. We skied once at Le Semnoz which is a local ski area but also several times at the large La Clusaz area which is about 25 minutes drive away. 2017 was a fantastic year for skiing and we were gifted deep powder snow that made skiing with the family great fun, I was also able to teach my brother-in-law some new techniques. In an action packed holiday in the final days my mother-in-law broke her ankle and Catherine the property manager was able to help us sort out our visit to Accident and Emergency department of the Annecy hospital where the treatment was both competent and considerate.
I cannot recommend this house more for a Christmas family getaway. It is a high quality property with all the familiar things that you need to make hosting a large group easy and allows everyone to have a good time.
Truly Exceptional Property
This was our second visit to Talloires and this house and it managed to exceeded our recollections. The house is beautiful, exceedingly well equipped, comfortable with loads of spaces to gather or get away, has one of the most amazing views I've ever seen, and just might be my favorite place in the world. Talloires is a gorgeous little town with a great boulangerie, a small but well equiped shop, a couple of cafes and a great range of restaurants from pizza to 2 michelin stars and it's only a 10 minute walk down the hill. There's more to do in the surrounding area than you could fit into months there - world class cycling, gorgeous hiking, kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding, lovely villages, gorgeous alpine drives, day trips to Italy, Switzerland, Lyon or myriad other fabulous places - that is, if you can drag yourself away from the house! There's also a lovely path up to Roc du Cher right behind the house - it's a good heart pumping little climb which will make you feel justified having a pain au chocolate for breakfast. A new addition to Talloires is basecamp - a bike shop/cafe that rents all types of bikes - so convenient to grab a bike and ride around the lake!
We all enjoyed swimming in the pool, playing bocce (I'm convinced there isn't a bocce court in the world with a better view), hanging out on the verandah, wandering into town to pick up the daily bread or grab a gelato and wander around the gorgeous harbour.
Phillipe, the owner, and Catherine, the manager, are fabulous - always helpful and super responsive. We had a minor issue with one of the toilets and a plumber arrived promptly to fix it. Similarly after a massive rain (most of the time we were there the weather was amazing!) the pool clouded up but a quick email to Phillipe had the pool guy there the next morning.
We were a group of 12 ranging in age from 14 to 79 and it was absolutely perfect for all. I can't recommend this property more and hope we will be able to spend time there again in the near future.
Merci Heather for your appreciation, comments and advice.
It is a great pleasure for Catherine and I to ensure our tenants spend exceptional holidays in my villa and the region we love so much.Thanks for your very positive comments which we find very encouraging.
Stunning location, incredible views.
We were a family of 9 celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary. What a superb place to celebrate it, nothing let it down, from the fantastic views to the well appointed villa. Catherine was very kind, helpful and very approachable. As other reviews have said it was better than the photos, perfect in every way. We cried when we arrived, it was overwhelming. Philippe was very easy to correspond with, as we had to change a couple of things and nothing was too much trouble. Would recommend the restaurant La Pricaz at the top of the mountain. So much to do fo all ages, a perfect holiday retreat, we would return in a heartbeat.
This is a remarkable house and view
We enjoyed our weeks stay to a full extent. The house is big and very well organised with very nice rooms and bathrooms. It has a wonderful living area connected to the kitchen and the terrasse. The view is absolutely the best we have ever had. The very charming Talloires is very close and also the lake with wonderful bathing possibilities. Our group included 2 children 1 and 3 yrs. The house is very child-friendly but of course you have to have close look because of the pool and the stairs. We enjoyed every minute. Christine who welcomed us is extremely kind and helpful.
An excellent holiday
We had a wonderful time. The house is most comfortable, exceedingly well-equipped and spacious. The beds were good and everywhere was very clean. We were able to use the pool, from which the view of the lake is stunning. Our welcome was very warm and friendly and Catherine was most helpful. We are already considering visiting again next year.
A superb and spacious villa
A dozen family members aged 22 to 83 years old had a fine time here. Dealing with Philippe, the owner, was very straightforward.
The villa felt spacious with a large open plan floor but separated into eating and living spaces and large balcony and pool area. We cooked a couple of times in a very well equipped kitchen and happily played games, drank too much and argued around the dining table.
Talloires itself isn't cheap but has cafes, restaurants, bakery and mini mart. Good walking and mountaineering nearby among lots of other outdoorsy activity or just lounge by the pool. Ferry stop to Annecy and around the lake as well.
A truly beautiful place between lake and mountains. Good food, good wine, good times
(Sodding Brexit. Makes me ashamed to be British).
