You can actually see the Perrière Bridge, which crosses the Thious canal, from the living room window. What more could you want? Well how about ice cream? The apartment sits over the town's most famous ice cream parlour, the Glacier des Alpes,where the choice of flavours will make your head spin. You don't need a car when you stay at Le SwansDoors - everything you could need is right on your doorstep - cafes, bars and restaurants, a huge variety of unique shops, lakeside beaches and cycle trails. Pick up delicious cheese, chocolates and other local produce at the markets, which take place three times a week, rummage through dusty antique and book shops, browse in the art galleries, or just explore the cobbled streets and canals that criss-cross this Venice of the Alps. There's also a popular flea market, on the last Saturday of the month, which is well worth a visit. Annecy is just four hours from Paris by train, and less than 30 minutes from Geneva airport, so it’s perfect for a short break, but if you can, make time to explore the lakeside villages and the mountains that surround them. This beautifully renovated second-floor apartment has plenty of space for six guests. Natural wood is used to great effect in the quirky decor, which seamlessly blends contemporary style with the character of this historic building. There are three spacious bedrooms with plenty of storage space. The master bedroom is a large double with an en suite bathroom, and has twin beds that can be made up as a double. The same bed system has been installed in one of the other bedrooms and in the third bedroom there is a double bed. There is also another stylish shower room and a separate WC, making it very practical for a family or group of friends. The door to the apartment opens into the open plan living room, with the well-equipped kitchen to the left. The dining area and living room have great views over the medieval town and the Palais de l’Île, as well as the much-photographed Perrière Bridge (Pont Perrière). The chateau and the stunning lake are just a minute's walk away, as is the Paquier - a large grassed area perfect for an evening stroll. It's also the venue for many of Annecy's festivals and sports events, as well as open-air film screenings in the summer. ABOUT THE AREA ... A town apartment may not seem the obvious choice for a winter holiday, but Annecy’s Alpine location puts it at the heart of five ski resorts that all offer fabulous skiing. The intimate resort of Semnoz is just 28 minutes away, you can catch the bus close to the apartment. It's just 600m to the main bus station in Annecy, from where buses also run to the Aravis resorts of La Clusaz (45 minutes away) , Le Grand Bornand (43 minutes away) and Manigod (39 minutes by car). Here in the Aravis, 220km of pistes offer challenges for skiers of all abilities, and there is plenty of scope for cross-country skiers and snowshoe walkers. The small resort of Sambuy Seythenex is 45 minutes away - try out the luge, the sledge piste as well as some exhilarating unpisted runs. At the end of a day in the mountains, enjoy an evening in one of the many bars or restaurants in this medieval town - apres-ski doesn’t come much better than this! In December, the whole town gets the festive spirit, with fairy lights, Christmas markets, concerts and an open air ice rink. The weekend following Shrove Tuesday, Annecy plays host to a Venetian carnival, when hundreds of masked and costumed figures parade around the cobbled streets and bridges posing for photographs. It’s a sight not to be missed. In the summer, Annecy has something for everyone - a romantic city steeped in history, fine dining, boutique shopping, watersports, mountain activities and picturesque villages to explore. Book a holiday at Le SwansDoors and you can explore the flower-decked streets and canals, the castle, and the 12th century Palais de l’Île. Watch the world go by over a coffee in a street cafe, take a cruise on the lake, or pick up some local specialities at the Sunday food market. If you’ve a little more time and energy, enjoy a round of golf or hire bikes and cycle the 40km route around the lake. The more energetic might prefer to tackle the mountain routes, which often featu Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 74010000146DDMore
