Many roads to go cycling, many tracks for mountain bikes. 3 kms away is a small town with all facilities available. 30 minutes away is lake du Bourget where you can go swimming and paddling, 40 minutes away is lake Annecy and the beautiful city of Annecy with restaurants, bars, shopping streets, and the best ice-cream makers ever. 40 minutes away is lake Leman and Geneva with its museums, luxury shops and best chocolate makers ever.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Many plants
  • Vegetable patch
  • A cat
The cat will follow you around to sleep wherever you are during the day and will spend most of the night outside. He will like you to be around when he eats, else he will meow a little to gently ask you to come in the kitchen!
The plants in the house need to be watered once a week or more depending on the temperature.
The vegetable patch will give you fruits and vegetables, please help yourself !
Please mow the lawn when needed but not too often, let the bees enjoy the flowers first :o)

The countryside around is relaxing with many options for walks and all possible sports. The Camino de Santiago / St James's way passes right by our house.
There is a very good restaurant in the village, just 15 minutes walk uphill to go there and downhill to return home! The small town nearby offers all necessary facilities but you can drive to a huge shopping area while going towards Annecy, it is only 20 minutes away.
