This private self-contained apartment, hosting up to 4 people comfortably, is set in a beautiful stone Grade II Listed building in the heart of the historical medieval quarter of La Roche sur Foron, a charming market-town, situated between 20 to 45 minutes drive away from most of the region's key attractions (The lakes, Geneva, Annecy, ski resorts, and of course, the mountains). Its great for a romantic getaway, for those wanting to discover the region, visiting family and friends, or for work.

The space
Recently renovated, opened and rated 3-Stars on France's official listing of Furnished Tourist Accommodation, inside La Rochois is fresh with new bed, sofa, kitchen amenities etc. We take pride in keeping it in top nick for our guests. No worn-out bed-sheets or tired utensils here!

While discretely new the building is wonderfully ancient (in a good way). It used to be an apothecary in days of yore. Step through the stone archway and into the vaulted landing seeped in history and stories.

You will appreciate being at the center of the lovely bustling old town (with shops, restaurants, bars, french bakeries, delis plus a handy superette nearby) all the while enjoying the tranquility of the secluded apartment with its thick stone walls.

The apartment is a cosy bolt hole on a very friendly street right next to the church and overlooking one of the town's pedestrian squares. Close enough to everything to just pick up your keys and go (or to pop back to if you forgot something or if nature calls).

It's also the perfect work place for those on business trips (we have good internet connection, space to set up your home-office and even a good quality printer for those power-point hand-outs).

Where you’ll be

La Roche-sur-Foron, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France

La Roche is a unique jewel in the region. Not many towns of it's size can boast such a charm and character nor are they set in such stunning natural surroundings. It's like the archetypal fairytale township of childhood folklore. And at The Rochois you'll be living that! No run-of-the-mill post-war block of flats on some ordinary outskirts! No having to take the car or trudge for 10 minutes through mundane everyday surburbia to get there. You ARE there! Step outside the stone arched entrance and immediately you're in ancient Europe. Take a pleasant stroll around the enchanting medieval citadel with all the best in French and Savoyard architecture: idyllic squares, winding streets, old city walls, castle outlooks, parks, mature trees, fountains... It really is a treasure to behold. Meander up to the 'chateau' and take in the wonderful views up the valley towards Chamonix. Feel a part of history.

During your stay

We live ten minutes away so please let us know in advance when you'll arrive to be sure we'll be there to greet you. There's a key-box in the courtyard for access to the apartment for the rare occasions we cannot make it.

We are at your disposal entirely during your stay for all questions or issues. (We're old-school so prefer a telephone call but will do text and email too).

For your departure you can simply drop the keys in our letter box and leave at your convenience (if there's no-one arriving later on the same day we are very flexible but if so we ask you to observe the 10 AM check-out time).
