'The Good Life' describes perfectly the experience of a holiday at La Bonne Vie in the Massif des Bauges Regional Park. La Bonne Vie is a spacious 3 bedroomed, 2 bathrooms, open plan chalet, sleeping 6.

A fantastic stay in a very well-appointed chalet, one of the best we have ever stayed in. Everything we could have wished for and more was provided. Stunning views from the balcony at the front and a lovely eating-out terrace to the side. Annecy was busy but beautiful - best parking was on the outskirts of town with a walk... more
