Very comfortable apartment in a good location for exploring the area. The use of the two bicycles really added to the holiday with daily morning trips to the bakery in Duingt and visits to the supermarket and butchers in Doussard, with a couple of rides to Annecy along the excellent cycle path at the rear of the apartment. Also, thank you for supplying the table tennis bats and balls - I've now found a sport I can beat my athletic 16 year old son at! The private beach with diving platform was also a real treat. Overall a very enjoyable summer holiday and would not hesitate to recommend your lovely apartment. May I also thank you for your prompt and efficient correspondence both before and after our visit.
