The chalet is located on Lake Annecy, in Glière (com.Doussard) on a large plot of approximately 2000 m2 on a private road with a dozen houses, where only local traffic.
From the partially covered balcony there is an impressive view of 180 degrees. You see the lake with its fishing boats, sailing boats, a marina, small beaches and the nature reserve "Le Bout du Lac".
The background is formed by the snowy mountains of the Bauges in winter.
On the property there is ample parking for several cars.
The play area, where swinging and table tennis can be done and the tea garden are well fenced and offer complete privacy. A small wooded area with a tree house makes the whole thing extra romantic.
Sun or shade can be found on the spacious partially covered balcony with a sun canopy, the loggia at the studio or the tea garden under the lime tree, where the sandbox is located.
In the summer, from mid-May you can dive into the lake from our shared jetty or from the many child-friendly beaches.
Rest and entertainment is for young and old.
Annecy, the Venice of France, is a 20-minute drive past beautiful villages on the lake.
Within one hour you reach Geneva or Aix les Bains.
With the maps and hiking guides available, there are simple and challenging mountain hikes in the Bauges, the Beaufortain and the Aravis or in the Mt.Blanc area.
The region is a paradise for cyclists. In 2013, the Tour de France, as in 2009, almost passed the house.
For all forms of water sports there is the clean lake within walking distance with even a slipway at the bottom of our own road. In the garage our family kayak is at the service of the guests.
In the garage you will find bicycles, hammocks, table tennis, parasols, garden chairs and all kinds of toys with which children can enjoy themselves.
There are 2 golf courses within 10 minutes. The Golf de Talloires (18 holes) and the Golf de Giez (18 and 9 holes). You will see the green of hole 6 in the distance from our balcony.
For winter sports there are the ski slopes of the Aravis and the Beaufortain and in a lot of snow for the little ones the ski slopes of Montmin (20 min.) The nice family winter sports resorts of Le Grand Bornand / Le Chinaillon and La Clusaz are just a 3-minute drive away. Within an hour's drive there are the extensive ski slopes of Megève and Les Saisies. Snow walks with raquettes are close and unlimited.
Many villages in the area have their colorful weekly markets during the season, often "vide grenier" and brocante.
Do not forget to enjoy French cuisine, refined and / or regional dishes, in the many restaurants along the lake or in the mountains.
In and around the house, after all activities you can enjoy a book by the fireplace or in the leafy garden.
What renters find:
We have fully enjoyed our holiday in Vivaldi for the past 2 weeks. A lovely chalet in a beautiful place and fantastic views .. We have nice cycling and the canoe is well used. In short, a vacation not to be forgotten. Fam. Hoek, Veenendaal, 11 August 2014.
We, pensionados, have visited this region since our youth. In 1996 we had the opportunity to obtain this dream chalet. A "coup de coeur". A heavenly feeling. Now we enjoy summer and winter, together with our children and grandchildren. Three generations, four seasons. We hope that after seeing this presentation you will become as enthusiastic as we are. If you have questions or want information, do not hesitate to email us. We will then contact you soon.
