We attended a wedding near Giez in July. (The reception was at the Golf Club House in Giez). Le Birdie is a terrific deal, especially if you book for a week. It came to around $100/night even adding on the cost of renting linens, basic personal hygiene products, and toilet paper (many European travelers bring their own) and having breakfast.... More

Thank you very much for your commentary. We are pleased that your stay for a wedding was an opportunity for relaxing holidays in our region. The Giez golf's restaurant is opened to everybody and is very good. We are sorry that somme customers arrivings on Saturday at the same time have to wait for ckeck in. As for swimming pools,...

Stayed in an apartment on 2nd floor so had a nice balcony to sit on. Weather was hot so with only the balcony door that opens, ventilation was non existent. No aircon. There was a small window in the apartment but it does not open. It looked very new so why they did not make it open to help this... More

Stayed in Le birdie this year and last. The self service apartments are simple but clean and pretty well stocked. You wontt be cooking gourmet meals as there is only a 2 ring electric stove top and a combo microwave which we finally learnt to use this year as a cooker. The inventory and all the instructions for the microwave/conventional... More

My husband and I were booking a last minute holiday and found a good deal at The Birdie Residence for a 10 night stay. After reading some of the reviews we were not sure what to expect, but I have to say they exceeded our expectations on everything. No it is not a hotel, it is self catering accommdation, although...

Residence Le Birdie is located in the small village Giez, 19 km from Annecy and 4 km from Averges. The apartments are quite big with balcony and access with elevator. The standard of the bathroom and kitchen are fine, all necessary kitchen equipment are available. You need to rent linen and towels if you do not bring it yourselves. Unfortunately... More

Good location, nice studio apartment (sofa bed, TV, kitchenette, shower/bath). Not a hotel! Reception only open half the week, for half the day. No late arrival possible even though they suggest contacting them to arrange this - I had emailed (three times) to arrange a late (~8pm) arrival and had no response. Arrived at 7.30pm, looked for someone at 'reception'... More

Frontdesk closed at 7pm. Late arrival impossible. Passive service attitude. Not something to recommend.

What a great find near Lake Annecy. We only spent a long weekend here in October but I would love to visit again in summer (or even during the ski season). Annecy is 25kms away and it's a truly charming town. Le Birdie is very close to the southern end of Lake Annecy and the place is excellent for cycling... More

What a super find. We stayed there with 2 young children last week. Unusually comfortable beds for a holiday letting. Breathtaking scenery with excellent lakeside beaches a few minutes drive away. 20 minutes by car from fabulous Annecy. Great supermarkets and restaurants in Faverges which is only 5 minutes away. It was the start of the season when we were... More
