It is convenient by car for Annecy itself, as well as Albertville and ski resorts including a nursery slope at Montmin a few minutes away, Le Semnoz nearby, La Clusaz, Les Saisies and Megève. Chamonix and Mont Blanc are also reachable, by motorway. Résidence les Gentianes is a modern building and Apartment 1 was awarded 4 stars based on sleeping 6, downstairs in the main bedroom (UK king size bed) and upstairs in the mezzanine double bedroom and bunks in bedroom 3. Including the sofa-bed in the living area, it can sleep up to 8, but we do recommend that it's more comfortable for 4 or 6. Your accommodation is equipped to a very high standard, including a kitchen that's as well equipped as our home in UK - with a Bosch dishwasher; microwave; oven/hob; fridge; washing machine and drier; pots, pans and serving dishes; matching crockery and cutlery etc etc. Our satellite TV includes Freeview UK channels including BBC, ITV and Channel 4 options; and there's a DVD player (and our library of DVDs and CDs). We have a large balcony with a view to Mt du Charbon (and outdoor furniture); and a basement garage (with a heated ramp to prevent icing in winter). An excellent supermarket, bank (with ATM), local shops, and Bar des 4 Chemins (excellent lunches!) all are only a 2 minute walk. The pricing indicator includes all costs - not only rental of the apartment but also any 'extras' that might be mentioned elsewhere in the text. More

The kitchen includes an oven/grill and hob, fridge with freezer compartment, microwave oven and a Bosch dishwasher. There is also an automatic washing machine and tumble dryer, and an airer, iron and ironing board. The bathroom has a bath with shower, and in the French style there is a separate toilet. There is a dining table with 6 chairs, and a patio table with 6 more chairs that can also be used as armchairs indoors. Satellite TV receives around 30 English-language channels including BBC and ITV, news, music and cartoons. Each bedroom has at least one armchair, and these can be moved into the living area to provide sofa or lounge seating for seven. Wireless internet access is included in the rental, and electricity is included for summer rentals. Bed-linen and bathroom towels are provided for a fee to cover the cost of laundry and a 'standard' after-stay clean.

We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment

About the neighbourhood
Doussard is close to many activities for Summer holidays, and convenient for several ski-stations. Some Doussard addresses actually are a few minutes drive from the village itself, so we particularly like it that we can walk within a couple of minutes to good food shops including two supermarkets, the boulangerie and a charcuterie, Bar; and to a summer market on Monday morningsAppartment 1 is only a few minutes from the beach & port at Bout du Lac/Doussard. From May-Sept a water bus leaves three times daily for Annecy, for shopping, restaurants, history and theatre. By car Annecy is 25 minutes along the west side of the lake, and not much longer along the east side. (You can cycle between Doussard and Annecy on a dedicated cycle piste) As well as water sports on the lake, you can hang...
How to get there
By road via Autoroute from the Channel Ports until about 45 minutes from Annecy; or by Air via Geneva, about 45-50 minutes to Annecy and a further 20-25 minutes to Residence les Gentianes near the lake. During the winter schedules, flights into Grenoble, Chambery and Lyon also are practical.
