Talloires - Lake Annecy

Undoubtedly one of France’s most beautiful cities, Annecy sits on the shores of Lake Annecy with its stunning mountain backdrop.

Known as the ‘Venice of the Alps’, ancient buildings line the canals and house boutique shops, wonderful restaurants and a multitude of ice cream parlours.

Add to this a wealth of history and culture, plus beaches, watersports and world-class ski resorts, and you’ll want to return to Annecy year after year.

The OVO Network Review

Stylishly refurbished by the new owners, Villa Flying Dragon, a stunning 180m2 villa for 8 in Talloires, has two very different yet equally magnificent views of Lake Annecy. With its outdoor living space comprising of pool, terraces, balconies, dining area, lounge area, and established landscaped gardens, the Villa is a superb location in the summer.

You can even watch paragliders coming in to land at the nearby landing zone from the comfort of the hammock on the terrace!

Indoors the spaces are flooded with daylight, thanks to the many floor to ceiling windows. In fact our overriding impression from visiting the villa is of the amount of blue visible in the natural green landscape, provided by the sky, the lake, and the pool.

Originally the villa housed an apartment and a main house, so there are two kitchens, two dining spaces, two living spaces, with 4 bedrooms and a sauna for 2 downstairs. There are two bathrooms at the property, and an extra shower in the sauna area, plus three toilets.

There is plenty of storage space throughout the Villa, including room to store bikes, ski kit, paddle boards etc in the long double garage.

Location wise the property is within 600m of quite a challenging steep and winding road section of the dedicated cycle path around lake Annecy, 2.5 km from the beach at Talloires, and 3.5 km from the beach at Menthon Saint Bernard. The medieval old town of Annecy is 11.5km away - choose your journey time, traffic builds up when the beaches empty at the end of the day.

A car is needed for a stay at Flying Dragon, and as the property is split across three levels it is perhaps not ideal for those with limited mobility (although if guests can walk up the gentle slope from the parking to the front door then there is a double bedroom, bathroom, 2 lounges and 2 dining areas, 2 kitchens and access to the main outdoor terrace from this level).

“After searching 10 years with hundreds of house visits, we decided to buy the villa at the first sight...”

“You just cannot resist this place – the lake, the mountains, the sky, the trees, the rocks, the blue, green, white… the great people around, the food and drinks - and the view!

Once you have seen the view of Lake Annecy, you will fall in love with the region and you will get addicted to this.

Like we did.

Over the last 15 years, we have lived and worked in three continents: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Taipei, Singapore, San Francisco, Denver, Philadelphia, Tunisia, Paris… not to mention all the countries we visited. But every year there’s always one place we want to return to - Lake Annecy.

In summer, you can go hiking, swimming, rock climbing, trekking, biking, jogging, golf, and all the mountain activities; in winter, you can go to all the different ski resorts in the area and still enjoy the sunset on the horizon and the view of the lake and mountains.

After a 10-year search and hundreds of house visits, we found this villa – we call it Villa Flying Dragon! We decided to buy it the moment we set our eyes on it. Knowing this region well, we are still astonished by the view and the brightness of the villa.

We call it Flying Dragon for many reasons: the sky is so blue that you feel all the gravity slipping from your life while you are enjoying the view from our deck. Meanwhile, you will see many paragliders flying around you enjoying their moment of free air.

We brainstormed many names, the lake, the view, the rock, the four seasons, the fun zone, the cosiness, the happy hour… Then we realised that none of these expressed how great we felt about our villa. Thus – Villa Flying Dragon it is.

There are two parts of this villa – one main area with a big open kitchen and a bright living room on the first floor and the second floor has three cosy rooms. On the other side, there’s an individual one bedroom apartment with a kitchen, living room and shower/toilet.

We think this could be great for a group of friends and families spending a week together, but who also wish to have some independent space. You could enjoy the outdoor swimming pool with Bali-style dinning table.

Our pool-side sofa area (the lavender zone) is the best place to watch the sunset over the lake. If the weather is nice, feel free to relax in the hammock and count shooting stars under the summer sky.

The location is perfect.

You are not far from the town but very close to nature.

You can ski in winter and swim in summer – all within 10-30 minutes drive. If you are inspired by stories in Peter Mayle’s “A year in Provence”, and dream about the French country lifestyle, food and drinks and a nice neighborhood, enjoy all the earthy pleasure of French country life and would like to live vicariously at a tempo governed by weeks, not by the day – come and experience Lake of Annecy!

Lake and mountain – no need to compromise! 270 degree view with four season activities….

We hope you enjoy this like we do!

Silvia and Philippe

“Unforgettable vacation experience”

The best vacation

— Camilla C. Sep 2023

“Modern villa with stunning views”

Lovely and modern villa with stunning views of Lake Annecy and its surrounding mountains. Inside the villa, you have all the comforts (spacious, comfortable beds, air conditioning in each room, well-equipped kitchen). The local road is directly next to the garden and quite busy/noisy during the day. Despite the size of the terrace, we were missing some cozy spots to relax and some decent chairs to sit in. There are a lot of activities to do in the neighborhood (although it's very busy during high season). The heated pool is very nice.
