This lovely, 3 bedroom spacious house is ideally situated in a gem of a village – close enough to both Annecy and Aix-les-Bains to give you quick and easy access to two of France’s most popular tourist towns – but without all the expense and tourists!
Situated in peaceful village in a stunning National Park, Lescheraines is the place the French in the know go when they want to ski in winter or vacation in the summer. Little wonder, as it is the best of both worlds!
It’s calm and relaxed instead of crowded and bustling, and you get a taste of real life in the Alps, not the tourist version. But for a small picturesque village it has everything you’ll need from a fabulous bakery/cake shop, to speciality chocolate artisans, pubs, restaurants, cafes and even a post office to send your picture postcards from.
If that isn’t enough, a few minute’s walk away there are three lakes with a fantastic leisure base and activities for all the family including a play park, swimming, water slides, water skiing, kayak, fishing, tennis, boules, cycling, horse riding, tree climbing activities, volleyball and more. In high season the pub/restaurant at the base has concerts most weekends and the village’s own tourist office can advise you on local walks, activities and events. It’s a thriving local community so there’s plenty going on in and around the area for all the family.
As for the house, it’s modern and spacious but in the local Alpine style with garden, patio, parking space, lounge/kitchen/diner, TV with UK channels, 2 double bedrooms, 1 bedroom with 2 single beds, an upstairs bathroom with bath and shower and another toilet downstairs. The fitted kitchen has full cooking facilities and a washing machine and dishwasher. Wifi is included and pets are welcome.
.....It's a great place for anyone, and particularly popular with families, walkers, cyclists, skiers and people who like outdoor activities or just love fantastic scenery in peaceful settings.
If you are looking for the best that France has to offer in terms of outstanding natural beauty, Alpine village charm and major league tourism - but from a more convenient, comfortable and affordable base - then this is the ideal place for you!
