Lake Annecy Prime Location Rental – Sleeps 8+
Designed by a local architect, the project brief was to modernise the existing building while preserving its Savoyard-esque silhouette and remaining sympathetic to the picturesque surroundings. Renovations were completed in 2015 to the highest specifications and the design has been conceived and equipped for relaxed modern living.
