About Catherine Berry
My husband and I headed to France with our three children several years ago to live for a year. Our original choice of destination, the Annecy area, was a lucky fluke arrived at after flicking through the pages of the Lonely Planet Guide, stopping on Annecy and reading not only of the beauty of the lake and the proximity to multiple ski stations but also the international airport of Geneva and Italy a hop, skip and jump away. With our interest piqued, we made enquiries, enrolled the children in local schools and decided after a month of living à la française that a year away would be way too short. If you would like to find out more about us please don't hesitate to contact me and I will be happy to forward additional information and photos to you. If you are really curious, you might like to read 'But you are in France, Madame' - our story. Kindle and paperback editions available on Amazon (search by title).
Catherine Berry purchased this House in 2015
Why Catherine Berry chose Talloires-Montmin
We lived for several years in Menthon-St-Bernard, the next village around the lake and the children attended the local primary school Le Clos Chevalier. Over the years we welcomed many visitors to our simple French life and began to laughingly comment on the increasing pride with which we did so. It was as if we were becoming French ourselves. A place to call home - in France - became our goal and armed with a list of criteria ( close to a bakery being number one! ) and after several years of serious looking we were amazed to be able to finally purchase such a house in the heart of Talloires.
What makes this House unique
The location of the property in the heart of the village of Talloires, only 150m or so from the Lake shore, is second to none. Additional to this is the charm and history of the house itself, complete with a fully enclosed garden and magnificent views. The daily ritual of opening and closing the shutters with lake and mountain glimpses is a pleasure to be savoured as is quiet contemplation from the terrace or beside the lake watching the sun go down.
