This ancient "manoir" was perfect for our family stay last Easter, its position, its charme, the garden for the kids, we appreciated all of it.

Pretty room, nice furniture, comfortable bathroom and good view. But obsolete payment system and limited service. If you still want to stay with them, double check whether they actually book you at La Vallombreuse or their new but less equipped chalet. They may put you whichever is available without prior notification.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2009

La Vallombreuse is a striking 16th century manor house built at the foot of the castle of Menthon Saint Bernard, above lac Annecy. (See both in attached photos.) We stayed two nights in October 2007. The rooms were all very classy and stylish (see photos), and the breakfast, held a large upstairs common “living room” that looks out over the lake and mountainside, was excellent. (It’s what we call a mountain or “Swiss”-style breakfast -- offering distinctive breads, fruits, jams, local cheeses and cured meats, along with other standard morning fare – see photo.)

The owners/ proprietors were very accommodating, and obviously they are patrons of and promoters of art and artists. We walked to a nice dinner down the hill in the little town. Excellent hiking is nearby (see photos) – and in the right season (but not in late October!) you can even visit some Alpine cheese farms.
