Paradise. Perfect for families!
We're a family of four with two young & active kids who've just returned from a week in Philippe's house. I'm happy to say it far, far exceeded our expectations.
The house is absolutely gorgeous. It's much bigger and brighter than the photos suggest - it's light and airy, and the dining area is a wonderful space with the doors that open wide onto the balcony. The balconies (yes, there are two!) are spacious with incredible views across the port and lake to the mountains beyond., complete with loungers and sunshades. The location is quiet and incredibly picturesque, and the village is calm and beautiful. The beach is only a minute away, and it's perfect for the kids. It's calm, clean shallow and safe. Occasionally the swans came to join us as we swam!
Between the lake, the mountains and the towns, there's so much to see in the area - I think we probably just scratched the surface.
The house had everything we needed - all the usual kitchen appliances, three loos and two bathrooms. The WiFi is fast and stable.
Things to mention - the house backs onto a street and while you can hear traffic slightly, it was never enough to disturb. There's no aircon, but it didn't bother us as you can drop the blinds and keep the ventilation slots open. Reversing into the garage can be a little intense after a long day, but you soon get the hang of it. And there's a lot of stairs, which didn't bother us, but it's something to bear in mind.
We never do the same holiday twice, but after this experience I think we're going to make an exception. It's just perfect.
Such pleasure to read your appreciation. It means a lot.
You and your family are welcome anytime.
Beautiful spot on Lake Geneva!
A very comfy place to stay while visiting the Lake Geneva area. Enjoy morning coffee and evening snacks overlooking the lake. Nighttime lights shimmering from across the lake in Switzerland. Very well equipped kitchen and enough beds and bathrooms for more than the four of us.
Would recommend this to our friends and family.
wonderful location in beautiful village
the villa is spacious and comfortable although the kitchen is small for a family of 6 for 2 weeks; however, the front door was inoperable due to damage so we had to move all our luggage and groceries up and down several long flights of stairs. Rene was unable to have it repaired before she left for her own holiday (France in August....) so we had no rental support after the first 2 hours. Parking for a 2nd car was along the public esplanade and was often overfilled late into the night. Neighbors were cordial. Grocery shopping and restaurants are conveniently close. Children loved swimming in the lake. Traffic through Evian for trips toward Geneva was as bad or worse than metro New York or LA in US but not as bad as the region around and in Brussels. Public bus service is a good idea for visiting Evian but schedule is limited. Would recommend the villa for restful summer holiday.
lovely location, lovely house, lovely views!
This is absolutely a wonderful place to stay. The house was very clean, spacious and comfortable. We often opened the full floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors to the terrace as the weather was perfect and so comfortable to sit in/out, looking over the lake, watching beautiful sunsets. Hiking is available just out the back of the village (very, very steep though!) or plentiful routes a short drive away. The hiking trails are incredibly well signed with a range of levels from very easy to crazy! Only one restaurant in the village was open but we ate there 3 times and loved it - lovely outdoor seating, excellent food. The other nights we cooked ourselves, and the kitchen was fully equipped with all we could need. A short drive to Evian was well worth it, and there was plentiful shopping around. Overall a wonderful experience and we only wished we could stay longer! Can't imaging a better place to stay in this area.
This is our second visit to this wonderful property and we'll be staying again. The location really is second to none - truly superb. The view is just so beautiful - we could quite happily spend our entire visit just admiring it.
