This hotel is not one of the cheapest around the lake - but one of the nicest. Very good location at the end of a blind road - no cars - and directly at the brink of the Lake. Own 'pontoon' with chairs exclusively for guests and round the clock service. Nice, cosy and historic old building in which the former monk cells have been transformed into very nice and updated hotel rooms. New toilets and bath rooms and a small balcony with a breathtaking view to the mountains and the lake. Out- and indoor restaurant with very nice waiters. Solid breakfast without being extraordinary - but very nice food for lunch and dinner at a high culinary level to reasonable prizes. Possibility to rent kayak, paddle boats near by and nice walking tracks to the surrounding mountains. Inside the hotel you find an open yard from the original days - used for producing some of the first wines in France. The nearby city of Annecy is old, cosy and a bit touristy but definitely worth wile a visit. It will take you an hours to drive around the lake - but doing it on bike should be nicer, but we have not tried. The Annecy is a pearl to visit - and at the level of the bigger Lake Como in Italy, but cheaper and more intimate. This is not the last time we have visited Hotel Abbaye de Talloires and next time we will stay a week and not just an extended weekend.
