Villa Trois Lauriers ...
Enjoy beautiful lakeside beaches, watersports and mountain hikes from this ultra-modern 5-star villa for eight, just 1km from Lake Annecy - and at the end of the day you can relax on the sunny terrace or, if you're visiting in the summer, cool off in your private pool!
As well as being just 1.5km from the banks of Lake Annecy, Villa Trois Lauriers also has easy access to the Aravis mountains - it will take you 30 minutes to drive to the ski stations of La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Le Croix Fry.
This stunning property is between the pretty village of Talloires, with its scenic port area, restaurants and watersports and Menthon Saint Bernard, presided over by its beautiful castle. It's also just a scenic 10km drive from the medieval town of Annecy, where you can enjoy a superb meal in beautiful canal-side restaurants, browse the exclusive shops or pick up fresh produce or antiques in the weekly markets.
About the property ...
Up to eight guests can enjoy the holiday of their dreams at this stunning two-storey villa, with four bedrooms and three bath or shower rooms.
Tucked behind a hedge on the road between Doussard and Annecy, the property is easily accessible, while being safe and quiet.
You'll enter on the ground floor, into a hall which leads to the master bedroom. This stylish room has its own dressing room, a desk area and an ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower and a separate WC. There are two more bedrooms on this floor - a double room with a desk area and a wonderful children's room with two bunk beds and a roll-out bed, toys, games, a television and table football. They won't want to leave!
There's another shower room on this floor leading to the sauna, and a separate WC. There's also a useful laundry room with plenty of cupboard space.
Take the stairs up to the first floor and you'll find yourself in the bright and airy living area. The fully-equipped kitchen is the first space you come to - it has everything you need to cook for a group, and a breakfast bar/cooking island. When dinner's ready, there's plenty of room at the dining table, which is positioned in front of the terrace so that you can make the most of the views.
The cosy seating area has its own space in front of sliding doors on to the terrace - it's a wonderfully sociable space where you can get together to watch a film or chat around the fire. In good weather, you can open the doors on to the terrace, which has another dining table and seating.
The master bedroom is also on the first floor. With an en suite bath and shower room, an office area and doors to the terraces at the front and back of the house, it has got to be the best room in the house!
The fabulous pool comes into its own in summer (it's available from May through until the end of October), whether you want to cool off with a dip, swim some serious lengths or just soak up some sun on the sunbeds. However, the owners would appreciate guests not using the pool after 7pm, in consideration for the neighbours. There are also two covered terraces at the back of the property, one accessed from the living area and the other from the main bedroom - they are the perfect places for coffee or breakfast to get the day off to a perfect start!
There is plenty of space to park outside the property and a secure storage room for bikes. There's also an outside electricity supply for charging electric cars, although this is metered and charged separately to the guests.
About the area ...
Villa Trois Lauriers is in an enviable location, just 3km from the beautiful bay at Talloires on Lake Annecy and 1.2km from the centre of Menthon Saint Bernard, presided over by its beautiful castle.
Walkers can enjoy a stroll along the edge of the lake, explore the Roc de Chere nature reserve (2km) or perhaps hike up into the Dents de Lanfon, where you'll enjoy amazing views over the lake.
Children with a sense of adventure will enjoy a trip to the Acro'Aventure tree-top adventure park, while golfers can walk to the 18-hole Lake Annecy golf club (600m), where every hole gives you a new view of the lake and mountains.
Those who love to eat out will be spoiled for choice too, with wonderful restaurants on the water's edge in Talloires and Menthon Saint Bernard.
If you want to explore further, why not do it by boat? You can jump on a water taxi from Talloires or hire your own boat for the day and explore the lakeside beaches and restaurants.
And of course, you'll want to visit the medieval town of Annecy itself, which is just a boat trip or a 20-minute scenic drive away. Enjoy the canal-side restaurants, stroll through the narrow streets of the old town or browse the wonderful markets that sell everything from fresh produce to antiques.
If you'd rather travel by bike, it will take you 40 minutes to make the journey. You might also like to tackle the Voie Verte - a 43km trail right around the lake, which is largely flat and traffic-free.
In the summer, make time to swim in the crystal-clear waters of the lake from the beach area in Talloires, or try watersports such as water-skiing, kayaking, or stand-up paddleboarding.
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!).
If you would love an Alpine holiday that combines the mountains and lakeside beaches, watersports and Alpine sports as well as your own private swimming pool, Villa Trois Lauriers is the one for you. Check your holiday dates against our availability calendar - we can hold up to two weeks for you for 24 hours while you finalise your arrangements.
But don't forget to come back and confirm you booking - such a stunning property in an ideal location is likely to get booked up very soon.

The OVO Network Review
Villa Trois Lauriers is a contemporary 5-star property for eight guests, with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
The location really couldn't be much better - just a walk from the banks of Lake Annecy and the charming village of Talloires, the Roc de Chere nature reserve and the Lake Annecy golf course. The medieval town of Annecy itself is just 11km away - a quick car journey and a very scenic bike ride.
And you're also close to the mountain resorts of La Clusaz, Le Grand Bornand and Manigod - summer or winter there's a great choice of sports and activities that will keep you busy.
The property itself is both practical and beautiful. Three double bedrooms, two of which are en suite, and a wonderful bunk room for children with books, games, a TV and table football.
The open-plan living area has a wood-burning stove to keep you cosy in winter but in the summer you'll want to open the doors to the sunny terrace and the beautiful outdoor pool.
Despite being just off the main road linking Doussard and Annecy, the villa is tucked behind a hedge and at the end of a drive, keeping it safe, quiet and private. In winter this road is always kept clear of snow, so you'll have no problem getting around.

From the owner
As a lifelong Savoyard, I was looking for a place where I could spend my free time with my family. When I found this plot of land, it immediately struck me as the ideal place to spend some quality time.
Situated between Menthon-Saint-Bernard and Talloires, the villa is in the heart of a beautiful landscape at every time of year.
in every season.
Between lake and mountains, the village and countryside.
Opposite the Roc de Chère nature reserve and just 10 minutes' walk from the centre of the village of Menthon-Saint-Bernard, it's an ideal location to explore the activities to be found around Lake Annecy. You're just 20 minutes walk away from a place where you can swim, paddle-board and water-ski in the lake.
Talloires' 18-hole golf course is just an 8-minute walk. If you want to hike or bike in the forest, it will take you five minutes to get there.
If you'd like to try paragliding, you can walk to the Perroix airstrip in 15 minutes. The mountains are 45 minutes by car, and there's a huge choice of restaurants for those who love fine food.
I am very happy to share this house with guests who will appreciate the peace and the space.
