We loved our stay in Marion's beautiful and centrally located apartment. We so appreciated the wonderful suggestions on restaurants and all the comforts of the apartment. The coffee was superb and everything was perfect.
The host was helpful when we got there, but it was very hot in the apartment. They had provided two little fans. There is only one window and because of this, even though it cooled down at night, it was impossible to cool the apartment. It was stifling and almost unbearable. It was too hot to be able to cook, and that was the reason we had booked an apartment! In order to sleep, we had to take wet towels to bed to cool ourselves. We wrote to complain to the hosts, but they ignored us. The apartment itself is very pretty but overcrowded with furniture. We were staying there with my 12 year old daughter and they provided a very small foldaway bed which was unstable and uncomfortable. The main bed was also small and only a double. The kitchen was well stocked and the place was clean, but because it was overcrowded it was impossible to have three suitcases open. It was totally overpriced for this time of year. I would not recommend this apartment under any circumstances if you were travelling in the summer months. I would not recommend this for anyone travelling with a child older than about 5, as the bed is too small for an older child. The position is central, but also right next to a bar, which played loud music late into the night. So if you had the window open, you couldn't speak to each other. If you had the window closed, you would die of heat exhaustion. We have used Air B and B before twice, and this was the most expensive but the most unpleasant experience.
Apartment is well located near the old town. It is delightfully decorated as shown in the photos. Owner Marion was helpful and friendly. Marion replies to my emails very quickly.
My aunt and I had a wonderful time. It was easy to communicate with Marion and we had no trouble finding the place and getting settled. The apartment was clean, quaint and full of amenities. The location is perfect- in the middle of everything. I highly recommend this après ski lodge to anyone traveling to Annecy.
It was very nice experience in Annecy and the apartment we have stayed. Very nice designed furniture and absolutely great position in the town. Convenient for everything.
This is a fantastic apartment, located in the very centre of Annecy, close to everything (shops, restaurants, etc..) and most of all not far from the Imperial Palace which for me was vital as I visited Annecy because of the animation festival and the MIFA film market. The flat is nicely furnished and theme-decorated with a mountain/forest flavour, with loads of deers in various shapes hanging on the wall. The bed, the kitchen, the bathrooms, everything is extremely confy and practical. Marion is a great host, we haven't actually met but she's been taking care of me all the way, calling, texting, emailing, I felt very welcome and taken care of. This place looks like a well kept secret.. not for me anymore! Looking forward to come back again. Thanks again!
PS - Great internet wireless connetion, very fast!
Die Wohnung war einfach perfekt. Sie befindet sich mitten in der Stadt, von dort aus kann man alles gemütlich zu Fuss erkunden. Marion ist eine sehr aufmerksame Gastgeberin, die schnell und einfach zu kontaktieren ist. Wir haben die Wohnung liebevoll und sehr sauber vorgefunden.
Falls wir wieder auf Annecy kommen werden, buchen wir auf jeden fall wieder das Alpine Cottage!
