At the top of La Col de la Forclaz, with panoramic views of Lake Annecy and the surrounding mountain peaks and forests, is Domaine du Paron, a fantastic rental property where Old World elegance meets modern convenience. This chalet is truly unparalleled.
Affectionately called ‘le chateau’ by locals, Domaine du Paron sits within 15 hectares of private land and reigns supreme over Lake Annecy and the Alps. The house is enormous, with no fewer than fourteen bedrooms and seven bathrooms, and it has absolutely everything you could need for a relaxing and luxurious holiday. Conveniently located yet suitably secluded, this is a wonderful base for families and friends, whether you just want to lie around the pool or you’d prefer to get out and explore the activities and attractions of the area.
The beauty of this part of the world is that it has something to offer in every season. During the summer you can play golf, explore by bike, go sailing on the lake or set off on foot down one of the many mountain trails. You could even try your hand at canyoning, paragliding or wakeboarding. During the winter the small ski slope of Montmin is literally on your doorstep but there are larger resorts just a short drive away - La Clusaz and Grand Bornand within 30 minutes and Chamonix, Val d’Isere and the 3 Valleys within 1.5 hours. The nearby town of Annecy is a vibrant and cosmopolitan place full of antiques shops, Haute Savoy plays host to plenty of gastronomic choices and there are lots of events to enjoy in the area year round.
The chalet is just 15km from the centre of Annecy and is also not far from the airports in Annecy (20 minutes), Geneva (40 minutes) and Lyon and Grenoble (90 minutes). There is a direct TGV service from Paris to Annecy.
