About Les Tourterelles Annecy ...

Les Tourterelles Annecy couldn’t be better placed for visiting this stunning medieval town. Set in the historic walls, this 4 star first-floor apartment dating back to 1700 was part of a former convent and is less than a minute’s walk from the famous Palais de l’Île, the castle and the lake.

You don't need to bring your car - 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 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 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.

The property ...

An unassuming wooden door in the medieval walls of Annecy gives no hint of the charming apartment that lies beyond. Open it, and you’ll find a worn stone spiral staircase that reflects the history of this former convent, built in 1700.

Les Tourterelles is a first-floor apartment that sleeps four in two double bedrooms (the beds in the second bedroom can be arranged as doubles or twins).

It has been sensitively refurbished by the owners, who worked with a team of interior designers. They have restored the high ceilings and teamed a mixture of modern and antique furniture with chandeliers and Swedish wallpapers to create a restful and welcoming home. The sunny dining kitchen overlooks the cobbled street and the steps to the chateau, as does the separate living room, where you can relax in front of the television (with French and international satellite channels), or people-watch from the large windows. The fireplace provides ambience, while underfloor heating keeps the whole apartment cosy.

In the summer, the  thick stone walls and the interior shutters keep  the rooms refreshingly cool. The main bedroom has a walk-in dressing room and an en suite bathroom with a roll-top bath, with a washing machine and tumble drier in a separate space. The second bedroom has a wash basin, with a separate shower room and toilet. Both bedrooms have views across the tiled roofs of the old quarter of the town.

The apartment is sound-insulated, there is an integrated system for TV, music, films and phone and wifi throughout the apartment. 

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 several resorts that offer fabulous skiing.

Semnoz is just 20 minutes away, and a 30-minute drive will bring to the Aravis resorts of La Clusaz and Le Grand Bornand, where 220km of pistes offer challenges for skiers of all abilities. The resorts also offer plenty of scope for cross-country skiers and snowshoe walkers.

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! (please note there is no storage space for skis inside the apartment, but there are many ski hire shops in the resorts.) 

In December, the whole town gets the festive spirit, with fairy lights, Christmas markets, concerts and an ice rink. Towards the end of the ski season in March, 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 short break at Les Tourterelles 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, there's plenty of hiking in Annecy, 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 feature in the Tour de France, for more info see our cycling in Annecy page. (Please note there is no storage space for bikes inside the apartment. There is however a great bike hire shop with late opening hours virtually next door.) 

Annecy is the parapente centre of France and it’s an adrenalin-filled way to get a different perspective on the city.  

As the summer turns to autumn, the city celebrates the return of the animals from the pasture (Retour des Alpages) - local produce is the star of this festival, when the streets are packed with folk bands, food stalls and cows. Other dates for your diary are the Festival International du Film d'Animation - an animation festival that was originally part of the Cannes film festival - and the Lake Annecy marathon in April. Even if you're not running, it's a great spectacle and the atmosphere in the town is buzzing! 

Whether you are looking for a romantic break, a shopping weekend with friends or an active family holiday, Annecy is the perfect destination.

What next? 

If you are looking for an elegant retreat from which to enjoy this stunning  town, Les Tourterelles is the perfect choice. Check your dates against our availability calendar to see if they are free - if they are, we will hold them for you for 24 hours so that you can make your plans. But don't wait too long - this apartment is a rare find in this historic location.

The OVO Network Review

“Explore Annecy from this stylish apartment”

Experience the real Annecy when you stay at Les Tourterelles - this stylish apartment is in the perfect location in the heart of the medieval walled town.

The 74m2 home has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, and offers guests a spacious and comfortable base from which to explore all the wonderful sights that are on their doorstep.

We think the best three features of this property are the immaculate design and decor, the high ceilings which add to the sense of space, and the breathtaking location - it’s right at the entrance to the old town and just a two-minute walk from the lake, where you can swim, enjoy watersports or take a boat trip to a lakeside village.

Although the historic staircase which leads to Les Tourterelles has a certain charm, it is steep and narrow, which may not suit guests with restricted mobility. The property’s central location in the heart of historic Annecy means that there is no outside space at this property, but with the lake so close, there’s plenty of opportunity to get out and enjoy the fresh air.

We think this location makes the apartment perfect for families with older children, or a group of friends. Les Tourterelles is so close to a variety of amazing cafes, shops, restaurants, and bars, there is always something to do.

So if you are looking for a very special property from which to enjoy a busy, buzzy medieval town, and experience living within the city walls, with Lake Annecy and the Aravis mountains on your doorstep, then look no further.

Enjoy!

What is the OVO Network Review?

We visit the property and write an unbiased review. What’s good? What’s not so good? We’ll help you find the right chalet for you.

From the owner

We wanted to create something sumptuously comfortable ...

When we first laid eyes on Lake Annecy, on a cold January morning 25 years ago, we thought how lucky people were to live in such an amazingly beautiful place.A few months later we found ourselves living here, and have lived here ever since. Our children were born here and have grown up here and we simply can’t imagine living anywhere else.

We are delighted to have acquired a sun-filled apartment in a quiet, 17th century, former convent, at the foot of the splendid chateau of the "Ducs de Savoie" The entrance in the original stone wall of Annecy Old Town was intriguing in itself, with a worn spiral staircase leading up to an old wooden door.

Once inside, the light and view hinted at the apartment’s great potential. Everything needed demolishing and rebuilding: partitions were knocked down, openings created, floors levelled, and windows replaced.

We were also glad to see the back of the ancient plumbing and heating. We knew we had found something special and hope we have done justice to a truly exceptional location, maintaining its century-old features while adding all that is contemporary and convenient.

Luck introduced us to the husband and wife team of architect and decorator, Frédéric and Laurence Gronier, who perfectly matched their technical skills and know-how to our vision for Les Tourterelles. Right from the start, the plan was to create something sumptuously comfortable for the visitors we hoped would come and experience the unique beauty and abundance of activities of this Venice of the Alps.

Having lived here through many seasons, we know there is something special about Annecy all year round, from the bursting out of spring, to the colourful buzz of summer with its water and mountain sports, the splendour of autumn with its glorious walks and cycling round the lake, and the frosty beauty of winter, bringing with it Christmas lights and skiing just 20 minutes away in the Semnoz. Add to that the numerous weekly markets and many cultural events, which mean there is always something going on.

We are sure you will be as awestruck as we were on our first visit and that you will grow to love Annecy as much as we do.

We wish you an excellent stay!

Guest reviews

“Nothing to declare : it was perfect!”

Big thanks to Alexandra for her wonderful service and warm welcome.

— Martine B. Jul 2020

“Absolutely gorgeous place! ”

The location can not be beat. We loved the old feel of the building mixed with a modern and fresh apartment.

— Katherine W. Feb 2020

“This apartment was immaculate, elegant and still cozy.”

It was in the best location in old town with great food and shopping within steps. Although there were crowds of people below, the apartment remained silent. Alexandra the manager was very kind and gave us a wine bar recommendation. The sheets and beds were so comfortable and the apartment such a haven, that we actually took time to stay there and relax when we normally would’ve been out and about more. It was a great way to end a week of skiing before flying out of Geneva. Thank you!

— Dewi R. Feb 2020

“Would highly recommend! ”

We had an amazing stay here. Great location, extremely clean and Alexandra the manager was amazing and very helpful!

— Natalie W. Jan 2020

“Really lovely apartment with the best location ever! ”

Thank you for providing a beautiful home and location. The only thing i would suggest maybe would be a double bed in the second room as opposed to singles but then I understand some people prefer singles. I really love this place though. I'll definitely go back and definitely recommend, thanks so much.

— Caroline S. Dec 2019

“Very beautiful apartment”

Amazing location and fantastic service !

— Simon T. May 2019

“A superb week with family”

The apartment is magnificent, and ideally placed in the old town - you can get everywhere on foot. The private parking just 200m away is perfect. We had a superb week with the family (four of us). Not forgetting the very friendly welcome from Alexandra. Thank you for everything.

— Matthieu C. Apr 2019

“A beautiful little gem!”

What a beautiful little gem in the absolute centre of old town Annecy. Beautifully decorated and very clean. Really worth the walk through town with bags to be so central.

— Paul C. Mar 2019

“They thought of everything!”

This place is in an amazing spot and is beautiful.

— Tim S. Mar 2019

“Great spot!”

Beautiful place, well located and we had a pleasant spending time at the apartment.

— Jon & Hannah T. Feb 2019

“A beautiful apartment located in a perfect spot! ”

We were very happy with our stay! I will make note that the parking is up the hill but it’s a great, covered parking!! We drove our car, my husband dropped off my mother and I along with luggage and we walked the easy 5 mins to apartment while husband parked! It was no problem at all! The apartment looks just like the photos!! Thank you for a wonderful stay. We live in Vicenza, Italy and it is the sister city to Annecy! That is so cool!!

— Robbie D. Jan 2019

“Great stay”

We have had a lovely time exploring Annecy and La Clusaz today. The apartment has been perfect and we have enjoyed staying there very much. It has been beautifully renovated and perfectly situated for wandering the old town.

Your manager was most welcoming also!

— Amanda S. Jan 2019

“Perfect location, beautiful home with so much charm”

We did not want to leave, as this home was beautiful and perfectly located in the middle of the old town and walking distance to everything. The manager was perfectly reliable and timely. We left very happy.

— Natalie A. Dec 2018

“This property is hard to beat. ”

The decor, cleanliness, space, and amenities are superb. The location is second to none in the old town. You will have no regrets reserving a stay here. Communication was superb at all times. A most excellent experience. Job well done!

— Chris B. Nov 2018

“Perfect!”

A very lovely apartment right in the heart of the historic town. The welcome was perfect, as was the concierge service provided by your manager. Very clean accommodation, very well equipped and lovely.

— Ricardo R. Nov 2018

“Amazing apartment in an incredible location.”

Communication, check-in etc was quick and easy. Would definitely stay here again.

— Chantal M. Oct 2018

“Nice property with an excellent location in old town Annecy”

An affordable property, very well equipped and furnished. It is located in the walking area of old town Annecy. The streets are only open in this area for deliveries and service during the morning hours then closed until the next morning. This cuts down on noise and congestion, with the windows open it truly gives you a feel for French life as you listen to the city wake up each morning and hear the pulse change throughout the day.

This also provides some quaintness, taking you back a few years to the times when people bought their groceries a day or two at a time and walked home carrying them. The same is true here, parking is about a third of a mile away leaving you with what you can carry by hand from there to the apartment. Thankfully it is all downhill from the parking garage to the apartment!

The manager was very accommodating agreeing to allow us for an early checkin since the apartment was available and also making arrangements so we could leave early to catch our flight out.

In the interim, used her service once when I could not figure out how to get the parking pass to work at the garage. She cleared up my problem during a short phone call. Note while we were there the entrance and exit barriers at the garage were changed out making it much more obvious now how to use the parking pass.

The apartment met all of our expectations and was truly a home away from home. We have lived in France and visited Europe on occasion. We were looking for somewhere to settle down and enjoy one place this time rather than travel from place to place.

This was exactly what we were looking for.

— Randy C. Oct 2018

“Charming unit”

We had a great stay in Les Tourterelles in Annecy.

The property is very centrally located in the heart of the old town.

The apartment is very charming.

All the communications and interactions were very timely and very clear and everything worked well.

We really enjoyed our stay there.

— Nisha A. Sep 2018

“Great location, stunning apartment”

Very stylish interior with a very rustic exterior. We loved the contrast. The location was great for walking around the old town.

— Mark B. Jul 2018

“The apartment is lovely, wonderfully appointed.”

“Great location”

This apartment is very stylish ! And Annecy is a great place with lots to do.

— Sara M. Dec 2017

“Charming”

We really loved our stay at Les Tourterelles - it is a charming apartment in an excellent location. We had lovely long walks along the lake (you can walk, run, cycle along the lake in any direction), as well as exploring the town itself. The apartment is quiet despite being in the heart of the old town. Virginie, the apartment manager, was very helpful with recommendations for activities and restaurant/bar options.

— Alina S. Dec 2017

“A beautiful memory”

We have truly enjoyed our two days in this cosy, convenient corner of Annecy. This apartment has everything you need for a comfortable, carefree stay…

Most importantly, it wraps its arms around you and makes you feel French… a beautiful memory… a beautiful moment of time. Thank you to the manager for her warm welcome and this happy home.

— Loreta C. Nov 2017

“Fabulous holidays”

We spent fabulous days in Les Tourterelles in Annecy.

Honestly we hope we'll come back to Annecy in this property.

The location of the appartment is just perfect.

Thank you so much for every things .

— Amani B. Oct 2017

Beautiful apartment in perfect location! Could stock extra TP and dish towels, but very lovely and I would definitively stay again.

— Janet H. Oct 2017

“A beautiful property”

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Les Tourterelles, beautifully furnished, extremely comfortable and very central.

— Judith U. Aug 2017

“A lovely break”

We have had such a lovely 2 days break here in beautiful Annecy ! Wish it was for longer.

What a wonderful cosy apartment, in the perfect location !

Superb standard of furnishings and lovely thick, soft towels. I loved the round light in the master bedroom!

Thank you to the manager for all her help and advice.

— Julie W. Aug 2017

“Exquisite apartment”

Exquisite apartment ! The town and lake of Annecy has been a magical experience. We loved paddle boating and swimming in Lake Annecy over the past 4 days. We have read the previous comments as to how peaceful and quiet it is here. We must have hit the peak 4 days as we still have hoards of ice-cream eaters outside on the steps at 10.30 pm – all part of the wonderful, vibrant experience!

— Richard V. Jul 2017

“A perfect location”

Beautiful property set right in the middle of Annecy's old town. Very comfortable and well appointed.

I did appreciate Annecy which is a beautiful place and this is the perfect location.

To note that the apartment can get pretty hot in the summer, so it's nice to have the windows open.

However, it is sometimes a bit noisy in the early mornings with cleaners in the streets.

— Andrew M. Jul 2017

“Great experience”

Wow ! This apartment was so much more than what we would have thought of when we booked it. The pictures did not do it justice. The view from Les Tourterelles is something straight from an art book.

We were able to experience the market on the Tuesday. We were here and what an amazing experience it was.

We were also able to spend some time on the lake.

Annecy has everything to offer. We know we will be back.

— Luke H. May 2017

“So unique”

We were so happy with our stay.

Everything was provided for us. The property is so unique and so comfortable. We are so glad we found Les Tourterelles Annecy. Our two little children were very comfortable as well.

— Laurette W. May 2017

“The best trip”

Thank you for a wonderful stay in your amazing apartment. We came to celebrate my 30th Birthday and it really has been the best trip ever of my lifetime!

We visited all your recommended places, met some wonderful people and we cycled the entire lake. We will treasure these memories and hope we can come and stay again. Annecy is beautiful, as is the apartment.

— Natalie T. Apr 2017

“Wonderful memories”

Thank you for a great time in your beautiful apartment.

Our family made wonderful memories in this amazing city!

— Chris S. Mar 2017

“This apartment was everything we could have hoped for!”

The design, comfort, location and service were all excellent. As a bonus, the internet was very swift, something we appreciated since this was a working stay. I will definitely be back. This area is so special, how could anyone not like it ???? A word of warning however: there is no elevator, a fact that should not surprise anyone since this is a classic, heritage building. The circular staircase is fine, but if anyone has mobility issues then this would not work. Many thanks to our check-in assistant who carried my bag up the stairs.

— Susan L. Mar 2017

“Wonderful stay”

Many thanks for a wonderful few days in your beautiful apartment.

We have enjoyed Annecy including five days of beautiful sunshine.

— Paul H. Feb 2017

“A peaceful retreat”

We enjoyed your stylish and beautifully appointed apartment.

A peaceful retreat set amongst the delightful town of Annecy.

Would love to take the apartment and decor home !!

— Tracy P. Jan 2017

“The oasis”

This was our first trip to Annecy and we know it will not be our last! We are both violinists. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra is starting a European Tour in a few days starting in Paris. We decided to come early to savor this delightful town. Your charming apartment is the perfect oasis for weary souls to recharge. The bedroom is so comfortable and the entire apartment serene. We could not remember the last time we heard deafening silence. Coming from a noisy big city, it was music to our ears! The town is wonderful to explore and your beautiful apartment is a hidden gem. Cozy, warm, inviting.

Many, many thanks for creating and sharing such a magical place!

We are off to Paris now… and hope to return soon.

— Barb & Blair M. Jan 2017

“Close to everything”

We had a wonderful family holiday exploring Annecy while spending 5 nights at Les Tourterelles. I loved the decor and luxury of the apartment. It's location was perfect in the old town, close to everything. We cooked in most nights so really got to enjoy the kitchen facilities. We enjoyed the coziness of the apartment. Virginie the manager was in constant communication after we booked, she also helped in booking a transfer from airport and a restaurant for New Year's Eve.

— Tracy P. Dec 2016

“The apartment is really wonderful.”

We have really enjoyed the night in Les Tourterelles Annecy.

— Yang X. Oct 2016

“We had a wonderful stay in Annecy.”

Accommodation is very important when you travel. In that regard, your apartment was excellent. It was very clean and well organized. Also the location was perfect. I would like to thank also the manager, she was very kind. We went to Le Semnoz as she recommended, where we enjoyed wonderful panoramic views. It was an unusual experience for us. Car parking near the chateau was near enough to the apartment and very convenient.

— Yoko K. Jul 2016

“Lovely and well-appointed ”

Les Tourtelles is a lovely and well-appointed apartment in the heart of old Annecy. We had a very pleasant stay.

— Thora S. Jun 2016

“Highly recommended”

I can't recall when we have stayed in a nicer apartment than Les Tourterelles. The location is the center of everything in Annecy; the apartment is luxuriously furnished and provides every amenity. Virginie, Rafe and Diana could not have been more inviting and helpful during our stay. Although the building is quite old and historic, the apartment itself was new and had high-end furnishings and decorations. The bedrooms are very quiet and the bed and bedding were very comfortable. We highly recommend the apartment to anyone spending time in Annecy.

— Lajuana W. May 2016

“We felt priviledged to stay at Les Tourterelles”

It was a beautifully appointed apartment in a superb location. It was an easy walk from the apartment to the shops, cafes and restaurants of Annecy, a charming town. Communication with both the owner and the manager was easy and cordial.

— Melba W. May 2016

“Stunning apartment in a fantastic location. ”

Photos and description are very accurate and the photos don't really do the apartment and surrounds justice - it's better!! The area is breathtaking and you need to stay for at least 5 days to fully appreciate.

— Scott M. Apr 2016

“Lavish and tasteful”

This is a lovely apartment which is in an excellent location for exploring Annecy: right in the heart of the old town. It is very clean and the décor is very lavish and tasteful. I would recommend it to anyone. The luxury feel makes it really special.

— Louise Y. Feb 2016

“This truly was a wonderful stay”

Les Tourterelles Annecy was honestly one of the best accommodations I have ever stayed in. We were 2 couples spending a week together visiting Annecy and the surrounding area in early September. From the start of my booking all the way through our actual stay and departure things couldn't have been easier or more enjoyable. The apartment is fantastic, beautifully appointed (better than the pictures describe), perfectly situated in Annecy, close to many shops, restaurants and the lake. This truly was a wonderful week stay. The only thing one should be aware of is that although there are 2 bathrooms there is in fact only 1 toilet but we made this work between the 4 of us and it really didn't turn out to be much of an inconvenience in the long run. I would highly recommend a stay in Les Tourterelles Annecy and can't wait to go back as soon as possible.

— Sabine O. Sep 2015

“Delightful place to stay. ”

In the very best location, but still quiet due to the ancient stone walls, this luxury home away from home will hold many of our fond memories from France, 2015. A spacious 2 bedroom, beautifully appointed apartment that constantly displays fine attention to detail. Thanks to Virginie who greeted us warmly, providing information on the apartment and area. Car parking situation quite new to us, but we did work it all out thanks to Virginie's clear instructions and her fine English. Annecy is a gorgeous city to stay in and we would definitely love to stay at Les Tourterelles again.

“It lives up to the photos...”

Enjoyed very much our stay at this property (staying as 4 adults & 1 baby). As mentioned in previous reviews, it lives up to the photos used to promote the property. If I needed to be critical, or perhaps just to give some info, the car park is quite a climb for an elderly person or with suitcases, saying that you are staying in an old town so is to be expected, it is possible to pull the car closer by to the property temporarily.

The apartment is great and we've been well introduced to the place by Virginie the manager. We've loved our time here, the city is incredible. I hope we can get back here soon.

“Remarkable place”

It might not look much from the outside, but once we got inside we were blown away! Congratulations, the apartment is so well looked after. Everything down to the last detail is provided and well maintained: retro and tasteful, the bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathrooms make it a perfect holiday base. The architect's eye for detail has done justice to his profession, Thank you for all of it, and for the sun we ordered.
