We stayed here for a couple of nights towards the end of our holiday in the Alps. First of all the complex is located at the foot of the mountains in the tiny village of Giez, the village although very quaint offers no dining or shops etc. apparently their is a restaurant at the nearby golf course but we didn't...

This is the third time that we have stayed at Residence le birdie and unfortunately, it will probably be the last. It was several years ago that we first stayed here and since then the accomodations and the site in general have not been renovated and are looking very tired and worn. The appartments are basic but have all the... More

As people have said, neat, basic apartments with a 2 ring cooker and 'most' kitchen utensils you would need. We were here in the winter and the rooms are well insulated for both sound and heat. Lovely big corner bath fed by a large capacity cylinder, so no worries about hot water. Wifi is in the games room and a... More

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

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.
