We've just returned from our second long stay at La Vallombreuse. Other guests generally booked one or two nights and that seems a shame as it is very comfortable with a beautiful garden and dining/living room. We were invited to make ourselves at home and we ate a picnic in the garden almost every night.
About half of the days of our holiday were very warm, but the old building was lovely and cool at night so it was no problem getting a good night's sleep, especially with the large and very comfortable bed.
The town and lake are stunning and in a wonderful area for walking, swimming and cycling. Paraglider pilots won't need reminding what a mecca lake Annecy is for the sport and we saw good reasons for that. We travelled independently but there was never a problem getting the bus to take off and there is a small supplier selling coffee, cold drinks and even Stella lager and spicy sausage hotdogs on the landing field.
Even though the B&B is very pretty and good for couples and families, the owners were not at all snooty about our sports equipment and dirty boots.
