About Le Solavue ...
This stunning lakeside apartment in Annecy has to be one of the town’s best holiday properties - a 12th-floor penthouse flat with incredible views over the lake and the mountains beyond. Add to that an exclusive address just a few steps away from the Imperial Hotel, the casino and the Paquier - the lakeside esplanade which hosts sporting events, festivals and open-air cinema - and you have all the ingredients for a superb holiday.
It’s just a short walk to the old town, where you can enjoy a superb meal at one of the many canalside restaurants, visit markets or just take in the scenery.
As well as produce and antique markets, annual highlights include the Venetian carnival in February, the animated film festival in June and the Lake festival in August. Members of the OVO team have put together a list of their favourite things to do in the area - check it out for walks, bike rides and lots of other ideas.
Skiers can drive to the Aravis ski stations of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand in just 40 minutes.
The property ...

The three bedrooms, all of which can be made up with twin or double beds, are to the rear of the apartment and all have televisions. There is also a stylish shower room, a bathroom and a separate toilet.
The fabulous living room stretches right across the front of the apartment, where floor to ceiling windows make the most of the breathtaking view across the lake to the mountains beyond. There is a dining table here and two seating areas.
Patio doors open out onto a narrow balcony which is a great place to sit and watch all the action on the lake. Views of the lake change constantly, according to the light and the weather - you will find it difficult to tear yourself away!
The well-equipped open-plan kitchen has a breakfast bar and wall-hung television which can be viewed from the dining table, so you don’t need to be bored when it’s your turn to cook. Parking is at a premium in Annecy so the allocated space which come with this apartment are a real bonus!
About the area ...
Le Solavue is perfectly located for families or friends who wish to spend some time skiing in the superb Aravis stations of La Clusaz, Manigod and Le Grand Bornand but also wish to explore the surrounding area.
It’s a 40-minute drive to Le Grand Bornand and La Clusaz , where you will have a choice of 220km of pistes offering plenty of challenge for all ages and abilities. There are also plenty of cross-country skiing trails and snow-shoeing options, particularly on the stunning Plateau de Beauregard.
If you fancy a change of scene, it’s just 30 minutes to the smaller resort of Semnoz, where a day’s pass is much cheaper. The resort of La Sambuy, near Seythenex, south of Lake Annecy, is just over an hour away and has 10 pistes ranging from green to black. An adult day pass is around 20€ (2018).
Wherever you decide to spend the day, a day on the slopes followed by apres-ski at a bar on the Venetian-style canals of Annecy is something you won’t find anywhere else!
If you want to explore the French Alps in summer you’d be hard pushed to find a better location than Le Solavue.
With the beautiful Lake Annecy right on your doorstep, you can swim from the stunning lakeside beaches, or try watersports such as water-skiing, kayaking, or stand-up paddleboarding. A cycle path runs almost all of the way around the lake and there are plenty of options for hiking in Annecy, or you could hire a boat and visit one of the many waterside restaurants.
For a change of scene, head for the mountains. There’s a huge range of activities to be found in La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod (climbing, hiking, mountain-biking and paragliding to name just a few!).
There are several superb golf courses nearby, such as the Golf Club du Lac d’Annecy in Talloires, and the stunning Chateau de Menthon-Saint-Bernard, less than 20 minutes' drive away, is definitely worth a visit.
However, if you want to go a little further, there are lakeside towns and villages, such as Talloires and Menthon St Bernard to explore. Just 10km away, you can explore the spectacular Gorge du Fier - a deep canyon carved through rock by the river Fier. Geneva airport is less than 40 minutes away, and Annecy has its own airport for domestic flights. It’s just a 15-minute walk to the rail station at Annecy which is served by the TGV, making Le Solavue a great choice for short breaks or longer holidays.
In the evening, what could be nicer than a stroll in the Paquier - the grassy lakeside esplanade which is host to festivals, open-air cinema and sporting events - a canalside meal in the old town, or a glass of wine on the balcony at Le Solavue?
With mountains, the lake and this stunning medieval town of Annecy on your doorstep, how could you fail to have a great holiday at Le Solavue? Why not check our availability calendar to seen when you could visit - we will gladly hold your dates for 24 hours if you'd like a little time to think about it. But don't wait too long - this is a very popular property, all year round!

The OVO Network Review
“Take in the best of what Annecy and the Aravis mountains have to offer”
The magnificent 12th floor penthouse apartment “Le Solavue” is a total departure from the mountain chalets the OVO Network normally specialise in.
The quality and facilities are of the same standard as many of our other beautiful properties, the difference is, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom, designer luxury apartment for six stands proud above the treetops lining one of the smartest residential addresses in Annecy.
Overlooking Lake Annecy, between the Imperial Hotel and Casino and the Paquier, this exclusive part of town is popular with locals and visitors to Annecy alike - the site for sporting and cultural events, exhibitions, including the superb early August firework sound and light display, and the huge open air cinema throughout the world renowned annual Animation Festival, to name but a few. This apartment is perfect for those who like to people watch, be close to the waterfront and the beautiful parks and history, framed by the backdrop of the Aravis mountains, that make Annecy such a hugely popular tourist destination all year long with tourists from all around the world.
The apartment has been completely renovated, newly furnished and tastefully decorated by a local interior designer - the space is light filled, bright and calm, the views from each of the three exterior faces of the property just stunning. The location of the apartment makes it ideal for couples, friends or a family, the perfect spot for those who prefer to savour the view and be close to the action, rather than caught up in the hustle and bustle, sights and sounds of the old town.
A 10-minute stroll along the lake brings guests to the Pont Des Amours and the Jardin De L’Europe - the historic medieval part of town with its canals and historic architecture is slightly further along the waterfront.
With private off-road parking, two lifts, and numerous restaurants, shops, bars, cafes, and boutiques within easy strolling distance, it’s a superb spot from which to take in the best of what Annecy and the Aravis mountains have to offer.

From the Owner
Its prime location at the centre of Annecy and its views make Solavue a unique property...
“Solavue is a family apartment which we bought in 1979. Its prime location at the centre of Annecy is close to the Albigny beaches, the Imperial gardens, the Paquier green and the old town. The balcony offers a magnificent view over the lake and the Aravis mountains, making it a unique property.
In 2016, we decided to totally renovate the apartment as a holiday property. We called in an interior designer, whose brief it was to turn it into a contemporary yet comfortable home. We chose quality materials, modern furniture and an elegant décor, designed to make our guests feel at home during their stay.
We hope to welcome you soon to Le Solavue, and wish you a very pleasant stay in this beautiful area."
“Wonderful host !”
The apartment is in a fantastic location and kept to a very high standard.

We felt we were alone in the world once back at the apartment at night, with these amazing views on the lake. This is a great apartment with all the comfort you need. Annecy is such a pleasant town, and the lake is stunning.

“ Fabulous holiday”
Our stay at your apartment was perfect and made such a fitting end to our holiday.
Staying there during the Lake Festival was an unbelievable bonus and something we will never forget.
The location was so convenient for everything.
The views from the house were amazing and the atmosphere was so peaceful.
We just love Annecy and the surrounding area.
The family were able to just walk out of the door to swim in the lake, use pedalos, and walk into the town without getting in the car.
