About Alan Highet
Alan and Shirley Highet bought Residence les Gentianes as a "new build". We live in Norfolk, after relocating from near Edinburgh. Our two daughters, who were teenagers at school when we bought the place, love it because there's much to do, but it's possible to chill out at the same time. (The piste cyclable is a favourite, as demonstrated in the photos).
Why Alan Highet chose Doussard
Closeness to local facilities is a plus-point, including our well-stocked Carrefour Contact supermarket, the boulangerie, boucherie/charcuterie, the bank, tabac and of course Bar des 4 Chemins, that are all just a few minutes walk. (Note that other properties advertised as being in Doussard can be car ride away ...). If the number of return visits is a measure, Résidence les Gentianes scores well, with many visitors coming back again, even as often as three times (and several families have visited six or more times!)
What makes this Apartment unique
Inside Résidence les Gentianes, we have furnished and equipped our property to a high standard as it really is our home-from-home - including a fast wireless Internet connection and English-language TV so we keep up with BBC news and our favourite UK TV series. Our kitchen and laundry have more facilities than we have usually found in properties when we have rented elsewhere. If only we had the same balcony and views at home in UK! Otherwise - Location Location Location - we are so close to local facilities; the beach is only a few minutes by car and the piste cyclable is only five minutes away by cycle; and all the lakeside venues are particularly easy to visit by car, whether on the east or west sides of Lake d'Annecy, because of our position at the south end of the lake. In addition to two supermarkets in the village, we have Intermarche and Carrefour superstores, and Lidl, only a five minute drive away and the market town of Faverges just a few minutes further; and when visiting Annecy we're usually parked around 25 mins drive-time along the lake, passing some of the world's most spectacular scenery. Further afield, to the south we're only 25 minutes from Albertville and about another 50 minutes to Grenoble; Chambéry is only an hour from Doussard; and to the north we can visit Geneva or the northern shores of Lac Léman for lunch, or visit Italy via the Mt Blanc Tunnel for lunch, see the sights and be home in time for dinner!
