“Hard to Beat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2011

We stayed for one night in May 2011 with our 10 yo son. Our hostess Mado was very welcoming and gracious, sitting down to a pot of tea with us after our arrival in the pouring rain, and giving us the chance to practice our French.

In fact, the rain was the only bad point in our whole stay. The room was lovely, beautifully decorated with lots of nice little touches which showed great flair and taste. Our bed was very comfortable, as was the single bed for our son which was easily accommodated in our room (La Tournette). The view would have been superb from our balcony had the weather allowed! The bathroom was spacious with two separate washbasins and a shower, and the same attention to detail as we saw throughout the house. The whole place was very tranquil.

In the evening, we ate at the justifiably popular Restaurant Les Tilleuls in St Jorioz, an easy trip down the hill from the guest house.

Breakfast was taken at a large table in the guest house where we chatted with the other guests while enjoying the fresh bread and home made jams (including tomato jam, which was surprisingly good). We also tried Mado's homemade Savoie cake which went well with hot chocolate.

Hard to think of any way to make La Maison des Pins better. A definite 5/5.

We stayed here three nights during summer and didn't want to leave. Our room was beautiful and large with views over Lake Annecy and the mountains behind. The smell of baking would greet us after a day out. At breakfast these homemade cakes would be served with breads, brioche, yoghurts, juice, delicious! The location does require a car because it is not in the centre of St Jorioz but we loved it because it was in between the lake and the mountains so we enjoyed a few days by the lake swimming and cycling (there are plenty of cycle hire places close by) as well as walking in the hills (views of Mt Blanc, lots of cows!, very picturesque). Highly recommended.

Philippe and Mardot have renovated this turn of the century house with impeccible attention to detail and style. The location is stunning. We toured around Lake Annnecy and honestly failed to find any building better located. Our room had a beautiful balcony with fantastic views over the lake.
The hosts are fantastic, giving superb advice on where to eat and go.
In summary we can;t recommed La Maison des Pins highly enough.

In Sept 09 we had the pleasure of staying in the B & B La Maison des Pins ,an experience I could truly recommend .The owners, Philippe & Mado have beautifully restored this home to the highest standards and their attention to detail is amazing.The entire home is immaculately presented with artistic touches provided by the talented Mado .The guest bedrooms have views to Lake Annecy & the surrounding mountains and the location is extremely quiet. The bathrooms are stylishly presented and spotlessly clean.Philippe & Mado were charming, attentive hosts and extremely organised being able to provide helpful information as required.Breakfasts , served in the elegant breakfast room by Mado, consisted of homemade fruit compotes, jams, bread,bacon & eggs & even Mariage Frere teas ! La Maison des Pins was one of the highlights of our accommodation experiences on our recent European holiday & I highly recommend it.
