    Access to La Bonne Vie is just 60 minutes away from picking up your car in Geneva, now the new motorway route to Annecy is open. Car hire is available from £22 a day at AutoEurope or CarHire3000.

The owners are extremely helpful and the descriptions and pictures are all as stated. We would not hesitate to recommend it. more
