In Proméry village, near stunning Annecy, this sunny ‘maison bourgeoise ancienne’ is a treat all year round. In winter you’re spoilt with excellent, traditional family ski resorts (La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand) nearby and Chamonix Mont Blanc an hour away. In summer, swim in pure lake waters, hike or cycle: this is an area of outstanding natural beauty, its colours glorious in spring and autumn. Watch horses grazing and sunsets over Annecy, with panoramic alpine vistas, through huge windows in the lounge-dining room. An archway leads to the well equipped kitchen, so the worthy cook is never alone! Up the old oak staircase find stylish bedrooms; the master with a great arched window, and downstairs a garden-facing double/twin. The feel is comfortable, fresh and homely, with good beds, crisp linen, attractive rustic and hand painted furniture. Outside a winding pathway leads to a dining terrace and barbecue in a gorgeous three level garden, then up to an enchanting woodland aperitif spot, with babbling brook below. The welcome and invaluable advice from lovely owner Sue also makes this a very special place to stay indeed.
