The house is a magnificent and large old French country house. The views are absolutely stunning. It was a delight to wake up every morning to those breathtaking mountains and lake. The pool was very nice and very clean. The hosts live on the grounds, but we never felt crowded and Véronique, Thierry and their daughter were extremely helpful and kind.
The area is perfect base to explore the surrounding cities like Annecy and Chambery, and even further to Lyon and Geneva. But our favorite day trip was to Chanaz. There isn't much in the local village, but you are only a short distance from a large supermarket in Gresy and plenty of restaurant and life in Aix. The small, lakefront beach in Brison is also fantastic. We spent many days of our two weeks down by the water and enjoyed every second. The only drawback with our stay is that the wifi was very weak. We had to rely on cellular data during our stay for most of the time. But I think that may be par for the course in that area. You don't come to Brison for the internet. But in all other regards, a truly magnificent holiday in a charming old home.
