We enjoyed our vacation in this very nice holiday home in Le Châtelard very much. Although the landlords were not present, the handing over of the keys worked very well and a welcome present was on the table for us. The information folder in the house contained extensive information about the house and tips for excursions in the area (Mont Colombier, Mont Julioz, Croix du Nivolet, Lac d'Annecy). The flat is furnished with everything you need for a pleasant holiday stay. A larger shop is located within walking distance from the house. We had a very nice holiday and can highly recommend this house!
We spent two weeks at La Bonne Vie and would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants to explore Lake Annecy and the surrounding area. The property is absolutely lovely and located in a quiet area with great mountain views from the front balcony (and windows!) and is the perfect place to relax after trips out and about. There are many things to do see and do in the area - we enjoyed trips to Annecy, La Clusaz and summer Gonodola and outdoor pool with amazing mountain views, cycling around lake annecy, summer chairlift at Aillons (15 min drive away), swimming in the local lake (15 min drive away), summer luges at Le Semnoz and Mount Revard. Our children were too young but the 18 zip wires you can do at Aillons looked amazing! We found the owner to be very responsive and appreciate the comprehensive advice and suggestions he gave on the area. I am sure we will be back again one day!
We spent lovely two weeks at le Chatelard in the chalet La Bonne Vie. The chalet is very comfortable and well equipped. It is well situated, not far away from Annecy, Aix-les-Bains and Chambéry. We can only recommend this chalet to nature and hiking lovers as there is a lot to do in the area of beautiful Massif des Bauges.
Our second stay, and just as perfect as the last. We could not have wanted any more from somewhere to stay - spotless and immaculate throughout. Also, bringing bikes, the huge garage area was excellent, and the location of the chalet is perfect for some great rides. Ian's very detailed advice and recommendations are just as helpful and welcoming too. Le Chatelard itself is the just right balance between smallness and therefore quiet, and being well resourced, but in easy reach of Annecy, Chambery and Aix-Les-Bain.
Beautiful location, quiet and a home from home. We had a lovely relaxing stay which is what we wanted but their is a broad scale to suit all ages in the area with lots of lovely walks and extreme sports for the more energetic. Local shops are a short walk and cater for every need. The chalet has everything you need and Ian is very helpful and genuine. Don’t let this one pass you by if you want a great holiday.
Would I go back? Yes without a doubt there is much more to explore.
