The nearest French town with everyday amenities such as bakeries, banks and post office is Seyssel; 9 km away by road, about a 15-minute drive. Seyssel is unusual in that it straddles the impressive River Rhône, and is part of the Ain (01) département on one bank, and Haute-Savoie (74) on the other.

In Seyssel there is a water sports’ centre which rents out kayaks and stand-up paddle boards, for example. The perfect way to enjoy the river. Close to the property, at 1250 m of altitude, is Sur-Lyand’s “Espace Nature” with commanding views over the Alps, the Massif de Belledonne, and Bourget, Annecy and Léman lakes. There is a cross-country skiing centre with 18 km of pistes. Luge, skating and snow shoeing are also on offer in winter months.

So whether you just want to relax in the serenity of the mountain views in the summer sun or take to the cross-country pistes of freshly laid snow, this beautiful property has it all. A visit is highly recommended.
