The Experience

Not many hotels are blessed with such an eye-capturing lakeside position; gazing from the terrace at the sun setting over the Roc de Chère, you could be in a Wagner opera. The three buildings that make up this supremely well-run hotel resemble – quelle surprise! – Alpine chalets; what’s more, they are set in well-planted gardens with a classy pool and perfectly gravelled pathways. Nicolas runs his relaxed and not-so-small hotel alongside parents Jean-Claude and Christine, with quiet Savoyard efficiency and a proper concern for your comfort. Rooms come in a contemporary style, with pale walls and modern art; all are big with swish bathrooms and the balconied suites have splendid views to the lake and mountains. The food – served in the restaurant or on the lake-view terrace – is first class (note, half-boarders have less choice). You are away from the bustle of Annecy but close enough to dabble if you wish… the old quarter is a delight. Sail, windsurf, waterski, pedalo – the lake laps at your feet.

The hotel location is unique, with mesmerising views of the turquoise lake and the mountains surrounding it. Our little boy loved the pool - and breakfast (so did we!), with its abundance of fresh and dried fruits, pastries, breads... Our dinner under the chestnut trees, overlooking the calm waters, soft jazz music in the background, felt very serene. A heaven for walkers, swimmers and foodies!
