The apt itself is cosy (bring plenty of firewood in the winter) and ideal for families or groups of friends. Our group consisted of 8 adults and we all fitted in comfortably. All locals were helpful when we needed...

About the neighborhood
Savoie and Haute Savoie contain some of the most breathtaking scenery in the French Alps and the apartment in Vallandry is 5 kilometres from the gateway to the Savoie National Park in Rosuel. From here, it is a walkers paradise with so many trails and walks in the clear mountain air.

Annecy and Lake Annecy are worth a particular mention as a perfect day of (flat) family cycling around the lake can include a lakeside picnic lunch and a visit to Annecy's ancient streets and canals.

For more serious cyclists, the options are mind-boggling with the most challenging climbs in the Alps all within 50km's of Vallandry. The Cols of Madelaine, Petit St Bernard and the monster D'Iseran are all close by with perhaps the most spectacular ride being up the Cornet de Roseland to the rese...
