Spacious rooms, views from balcony, charming garden with old fashioned vegetable patch, herb garden, fruit trees, terraces. Easy and direct access to the lake for boating and swimming.

Dear Sylvie S,
Report response as inappropriate
we were delighted to host you in Abbaye de Talloires.
Thank you so much for all the compliments concerning the hotel, the breakfast and our brasserie restaurant.
You can imagine that we are very disappointed that we were not able to convince you with our fine dining restaurant. Nevertheless we thank you for your comments as we want to improve constantly.

Hoping to see you again in Abbaye de Talloires,
I remain with warmest regards
