This is your property ?
Only 15 km from Annecy, 1 km from the South end of the lake and handy for all sports and cultural activities, "La Grange de Julie" is a quiet and comfortable Bed & Breakfast in what was originally a barn. Like most old farm buildings, it is ideally placed with magnificent surrounding views on the moutains.
Owner-architect Jean-François did not renovate it - otherwise, it would be a NEW barn but transformed the almost empty volume into our family home, keeping the 18th century beams and adding quite a few more, as well a big open fireplace in the ground floor dining room. French windows have replaced the original barn doors so that sunlight flows in all day. Needless to say that the heating, hot water and bathrooms are completely up to modern standards! The house is furnished with a mixture of family heirlooms, books, toys old and new, colorful bedspreads and hand-embroidered cushions, a piano almost everything has a funny story to it, and is meant to be used and enjoyed.

Location & area
Lathuile is situated just above the South end of the "Lac d'Annecy"- the purest lake in Europe -, with Annecy at the other end, 15 km away.
The lake (known as the "silver lake"), Annecy ("the Venice of the Alps") and all the villages surrounding it are one of the most beautiful and charming alpine settings you will find.
Sport lovers will find a large choice of activities all year around. In winter, skiing or snowboarding, if preferred, is just 20 km away; the rest of the year, you can enjoy hiking (you can leave from our house), cycling (a cycling trail all the way to Annecy is 1 km away), paragliding (the Col de la Forclaz in front of our windows is a well-known spot), golf (two golf-clubs are less than 10 km from here), and in summer, all the water sports : the lake is 23°, and perfect for bathing and sailing, or, higher up, canyoning,
The area abounds in natural reserves the first one is 2 km from our house.
Annecy is a enchanting historical town you will find interesting museums, old passageways along the canals between lovingly restored Italian renaissance houses, - but Annecy is a also an artistic center and a lively place : festivals of all sorts, concerts, sport competitions succeed each other almost all year around.
It is also to be noted that very many restaurants are to be found all around the lake you can choose from the whole scale from simple local food (mostly based on cheese) to "three star" Chef's cooking.
Around Annecy, castles, churches and abbeys are witnesses to the rich history of our region.
Further away, Chamonix-Mont Blanc is a possible day-excursion.
Shopping facilities : Doussard, 2km from our house, has all the necessary shops.

Amenities & services
La Grange de Julie's rooms are each different but each one has an ensuite bathroom; all the rooms are painted white, only the bathrooms are gaily colored.
The ground floor room has a French window that opens on to the garden to the West. The walls are painted white and hung with pastel water-colors (painted in the 1940s by an American Great-Grandmother), the ground is tiled in soft gray, there is a double bed and a mahogany desk. It is a very separate, private room, and also the only one we sometimes accept pets in.
There are two rooms upstairs, both with large windows to the East with a lovely view of the mountains (and, of course, the trees, the birds and the paragliders). These rooms have wood floors, high sloping ceilings and visible beams.
One room has a double bed and a single bed, and can receive a baby cot. In this room, there is a typical mountain wardrobe, and a collection of old and new metallic toys and books, of course.
The other room also has a window looking South; here, there are two single beds and a cot (for a child up to three years old) quite a few cartoon books that have been read by several generations, and an antique school desk.
Another one should be ready by summer 2007... with a double bed and a pink bathroom.
We also offer a family room in our annex : there are two communicating rooms (one with a double bed, one with two single beds and a TV), a bathroom, and a balcony with a lovely view on the mountaines; it is quite comfortable for a family of four.
We of course furnish all linens and towels, can lend you a bottle-warmer, an iron, a hair dryer, a television for your room but we do not supply room-service.
The spacious living-rooms in the house are open to the guests as also the terrace and garden.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
