Everything that is important to us in a bed and breakfast we found here: a charming hostess willing to give information when requested, an EXTREMELY comfortable bed, quiet, excellent coffee, a traditional local breakfast, and a beautiful view out the window. The gardens are lovely, the mountain view is divine, and the inn is well situated a short walk from a few tiny restaurants and also from one of the most magnificent castles in Savoie. 20 minute walk to the lake. We stayed 4 nights and after staying at other inns in other Haute-Savoie towns we were wishing we had stayed longer.
A minor quibble: The room's bathtub (we were in the mezzanine room) did not have a shower curtain so we felt compelled to take a sitting bath with the shower head to rinse us. But the bathroom was so large and comfortable we did not let this spoil our enjoyment. We were there as a couple but our teenage kids would enjoy this inn also.

Thank you so much for your nice impression left on Trip advisor concerning la Vallombreuse. I am just concerned on the fact that you didn't see the bath curtains that are in each bathrooms. It is true that we chose to put bathtubs and not proper showers. Maybe I have to explain this detail better next time to new guests. Thank you any way and hope to see you soon.

I give this hotel a split decision. I don’t want to review it too much because there is nothing special either way about this place. So here is a quick list of what I liked and what I didn’t.

Pros:
Clean
Spacious
Great views
Good price

Cons:
They advertise Wi-Fi, but only don’t get any decent signal anywhere, and when you do manage it is slow as molasses running uphill in winter.

Breakfast is supposed to be included but it is nothing more than yoghurt, cheese, coffee, juice and milk. Technically this is breakfast but don’t expect it to fuel your busy morning.

They hand wrote our “receipt” on a blank piece of paper because they ran out of invoice paper. For me this is a basic that should not be missed, unprofessional in my opinion.

Room Tip: Bring pillows.

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.

Merci pour votre belle description de la maison et du lac. Nous sommes ravis de vous avoir reçu pour la deuxième fois. Notre maison est aussi bien entendue ouverte à tous les sportifs de tout poils.

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.

I am sure I had already answered this note so just to clarify what had happened, i will do it again.
Miss Mayagva wanted a reservation at la Vallombreuse but we were fully booked. I offered her to book a room in our new self-cattering chalet in the village, explaining that we were not living on the spot but that we would be most happy to exceptionally serve breakfast for her there! She fully agreed with the offer and i picked her up at the bus stop to take her to the chalet and show her around the village.
Because this place is not a bed and breakfast, payments are usually made in advance by transfert or pre-payement with a credit card. Payement could then be donne directly with me and with a credit/debit card!

Sad to see that you spend an unpleasant weekend instead of enjoying the beauty of the place and incredible lake view. We will maybe have the pleasure to have you again at la Vallombreuse. The chalet is now a full self-catering rental place for groups.
