This is a lovely family getaway home in Vérel, a mountain-side hamlet nestled just above the beautiful lakeside village of Talloires, on the Eastern shores of Lake Annecy in the French Alps.  


The owners love the outdoors, entertaining and great food and wine and have designed the house with all these things in mind.  

The house faces South-West, so is perfectly oriented for all-day sun, for longer sunlight hours in Winter (when the nights are long!) and long balmy Summer evenings.  There are beautiful views from all areas of the house and the Dents de Lanfon mountain provide a particularly stunning backdrop to the house.  

The house is designed in the simple and cosy comfort of Scandinavian style and furnished to a very high standard (goosedown duvets, marble dining table, leather sofa...)  For fire lovers, there is a large indoor wood burning fireplace.

The bedrooms are simply furnished in a relaxed style and the beds are designed for cocooning. The  wide 160x200 cm beds are covered by kingsize goosedown duvets affording the cosy experience of sleeping in a cloud. A wonderful experience after a long day of hiking!

For those who just want to laze around the house, there's ping pong (table tennis), badminton, petanque or just simply lounging in the garden with a glass of wine whilst the paragliders float above in the sky.

The open plan living area opens onto a wide deck and a large rolling garden with lots of mature trees. There are lots of opportunities to both relax with a book under a tree or for children to play hide and seek or roll down the grass (maybe under some light supervision for younger kids ;).

Please note that the garden is not fenced off and is simply bordered by trees with the neighbouring properties

The house is equipped with WIFI and a Smart Tv with access to many channels and Netflix capability for those guests with their own account.
