A beautiful apartment in a fantastic location with truly spectacular views
A wonderful place. The apartment is comfortable, spacious, clean and well equipped. The views from the balconies are breathtaking and the private lake access was very much enjoyed - particularly for an early morning swim! Duingt is a charming village with quaint old streets and an excellent bakery. The nearby cycle track also leaves many other lovely places around the lake within easy reach.
Le Pavillon du Lac enjoys access to a private swimming area in the crystal clear waters of the lake via an exclusive foot tunnel under the road between the apartment and the lake. At the private access point the water becomes deep quickly so may not be suitable for younger children. Lake Annecy has been referred to as Europe's cleanest lake and is often described as the most beautiful lake in France. Circled by stunning mountains, it's a great base for year round mountain sports, as well as a great variety of water sports.
The main Annecy to Albertville road, which can be busy at times, runs between the apartment and the lake.

Annecy - a beautiful medieval town with lots of character, cobbled streets and picturesque waterways, is some 10 km up the lake from Duingt.

The mountains beyond provide stunning scenery as well as ski-ing, mountain biking, walking, climbing, luge-runs, parasailing, handgliding, canyoning and adventure high-wire.
