Sandra is not just a Super Host - she is an Uber Super Host! We stayed for 10 days in the first floor apartment - light yet cosy. Well appointed - even a soup blender, which was perfect. Comfortable place, tastefully decorated, well situated - nothing negative to say at all - did not want to leave! You make everyone so welcome, the comfort, the little personal touches - flowers etc. Your good taste and hospitality shine through.
We love everything about this home. Great location, close to all the hustle and bustle but not right in it so you can enjoy the quieter life but not miss out on all the fun of lake and old town. The house has a nice fenced yard so kids can play outside all day long and you don’t have to worry about them. There are two apartments with kids’ bedrooms, so if you’re a family with kids, good chances you’ll have other kids in the house to play with. We’ve been here for 3 months so far and already met so many new friends.
The apartment is spacious, very well laid out and decorated. It has everything you need for a short or a long stay. Not to mention all the storage space in the apartment and the cellar. For those who have lots of sports equipment, there is so.. much.. space! Getting around is easy from here. There are bikes to borrow. Pretty much any bike size you’d need. We found having these is so handy because not only its easy to get to old town, but also further destinations are easier to get to then if you had to walk. Walking takes longer to get to places but bikes open up a whole set of new areas to you.
Our host, Sandra, is so welcoming and friendly - with tons of recommendations and ideas to make you feel right at home.
Don’t think we’re gonna be able to leave!
Sandra’s apartment is spectacular and she is the most wonderful hostess; so thoughtful with great ideas on what to do in amazing Annecy.
We arrived to a beautifully renovated house, climbed the stairs to the top floor & what a 'find'. There is a 360 degree aspect enabling you to see the mountains and far more. The light & gentle breeze stream through & you feel on top of the world. The apartment is spotlessly clean, uncluttered, super stylish, almost minimalist but with wonderful quirky touches so homely at the same time.
It is extremely well appointed with all the cooking and entertainment facilities you could want, all very clean & well maintained. Storage galore & lots of living space.
Everything is in walking distance but we sometimes borrowed the bikes Sandra lent us to tour the incredible turquoise watered lake and surrounding hills. It was always a joy to return to our gorgeous apartment, so calming, safe & secure. It was so hard to leave on our final morning. We WILL be back.
So proud to have called My Sweet Home our home in Annecy! My husband and I stayed here for almost six months (Jan~June 2020) and we couldn't have been happier. The flat has everything you will need - not just for short stays but for long term living. The flat has many windows all around and every single window has a beautiful view. The fireplace made it very cozy during the winter and the beautiful garden equipped with bbq grill and table was the best! The location couldn't have been better. You can easily reach the lake and groceries on your bike or on foot. Sandra and Alex are the best hosts. They are always a step ahead of you and making sure you're taken care of. We are hoping we can return to Annecy once a year to Sandra and Alex's My Sweet Home.
This is just the ideal spot for anyone looking to have a sabbatical close to some of France's most beautiful places. The apartment is very well situated in Annecy, close to the lake and with views of the surrounding mountains. We definitely profited from all nature could offer - swimming, biking, hiking, snowshoeing...even paragliding.
Sandra is just an exemplary hostess. She was always available, responsive and kind. She made our stay seemless! And the house is lovely - clean, modern, and comfortable. And bikes to go with your apartment! Wonderful place for kids as well. We wish we were still there;)
We miss you all and Annecy!
We spent our sabbatical year in France and England, with all our time in France at this absolutely outstanding flat in Annecy. Sandra was a phenomenal host, and supported our three kids with getting integrated into the community and school. She helped us to get settled, and really made our time in France memorable. Over our year she became a true friend.
The apartment was bright and clean and comfortable. Importantly, given that I was in France to do academic research, it had an excellent internet connection, and the large library in Annecy was a lovely short walk away.
I could write an essay about how wonderful this apartment is and how supportive Sandra was with helping us to get settled. I give this accommodation, and Sandra as host to an international family, my absolutely highest recommendation.
We spent 3 days for Christmas in this lovely and bright apartment with amazing mountain views, really close to the center and the lake.
Residential and calm neighborhood, really convenient to walk or bike to the Old town and the lake.
We've enjoyed our trip in My Sweet Home. Great place to stay in a lovely town!
I stayed for a week in Annecy. Wonderful Nordic style apartment in a very nice and quiet neighborhood. Moreover the proximity to the lake and bikes available to visit made it a perfect stay. Will come back!
Thank you Sandra for a lovely stay. The two weeks we spent here visiting our friends was a memorable holiday. Having a lovely place to come home to, have joint family meals in and the help with the bikes for exploration including for our toddler made this a wonderful family vacation we will always remember. I hope to be back! Adrienne and Bruce (Canada), October 2019
Stayed for a week in May 2019. Gorgeous apartment, well equipped and spotlessly clean. Plenty of storage, bikes and laundry facilities. Lovely gardens and courtyard. Sandra is a wonderful host and happy to answer all and any questions about Annecy, the Alps, restaurants, activities ... Perfectly set up for short or long term rental.
I spent a month in the loft apartment whilst attending classes at the Alliance Francaise . I would highly recommend the loft apt .especially for a solo traveller . Sandra met me on my arrival which was much appreciated .The loft was cheerful and I loved the skylights in the lounge and bathroom .The views of the mountains were better than I had hoped for ..
The kitchen was well equipped including coffee machine . Bed very comfortable and room very quiet. I loved the fact I could walk to the town and lake . Highly recommend the loft and hope to return one day .
Beautiful apartment, spectacular location, all the amenities we needed and an amazing host family.
You can't beat that!
I was lucky enough to have stayed here at "My Sweet Home," this summer. The apartment is beautiful and located just a short walk or bike ride to down town Annecy. We took advantage of the bikes that were available so we didn't have to use our car at all during our stay! The apartment has everything the seasoned traveler expects as well as beautiful touches that were thoughtful surprises, (such as fresh cut lavender!)
Sandra and her family share details about special places to visit and other hidden gems so we were able to take full advantage of all that Annecy had to offer and then retreat to the spacious, beautiful apartment to get some rest before we tackled the next day of adventures. I highly recommend "My Sweet Home" to singles or families looking to spend time in the French Alps!
An amazing experience !
We are a family of 4 (teens of 17 and 15) who visited for the first time the french Alps and had a wonderful stay in Annecy due to both, a great property and an incredible host family.
We spend 3 weeks this summer at the Alpine Loft and it is exactly as you can see in the pictures : cozy, clean, modern, stylish and practical in a great residential location close to the lake, the old town and a Saturday street market. We enjoyed a lot biking everywhere with the bikes provided with the apartment and got to know great neighbors.
Sandra and her family are the best host ever, extremely friendly and helpful. They speak several languages and are always taking care of their guests’ needs with excellent recommendations and support.
We liked it so much, we are already looking forward to go back.
What a beautiful place to stay! Stunning apartment, beautiful restored, perfect for a family trip to the fabulous Lake Annecy. Owners were incredibly helpful and answered our many questions. Would throughly recommend this beautiful appartment to anyone looking to enjoy the splendour of the region
I had the pleasure of staying at My Sweet Home while attending the animation festival in Annecy, France. The first floor flat was spacious and the interior both modern and absolutely charming.
Sandra, our host, was very helpful. We were greeted with a bottle of wine and chocolates. I could see myself happily staying there for months and will certainly return for the next festival.
We stayed at this apartment for 3 month and were very pleased. Comfortable, spacious and luminous and in a perfect position ,very close to the center.Very nicely decorated with attention to details. The host, Sandra, was always very helpful and kind.
Our family (parents and two girls aged 5 and 7) stayed for 10 weeks in the Paris apartment during a family leave this winter (January-March). The flat was perfect for the four of us and especially the children were very content with their room. Sandra was a fantastic host, patient with all questions and inquiries, recommending things suitable and always happy to suggest places to visit and things to see in and around Annecy. Thank you for your hospitality, we would love to come again!
We are pleased to come to Sandra every year. We love the Chamonix Loft which is perfectly equipped and very bright.
Large cellar, garden and bikes available.
The house is very well located, close to the center of Annecy and the Lake, local shops.
Sandra is very friendly, available and very accommodating.
I highly recommend !
Best Place in Town
We were so happy here. Great support from the owner. Perfect location, walk to everything but quiet at night. Clean, fresh, home. My wife likes to cook and the big kitchen is stocked with all she needed. Bedrooms with lots of storage. Bunk beds were awesome for our children.Best place ever..

We are a family of 5 including 3 children aged 8, 7 and 4. We stayed in My Sweet Home's 2 bedroom 'Paris' apartment, for 5 weeks from early December 2017.
I have nothing but positive things to say about this accomodation. It is located right in the 'hot spot' of Annecy being a short walk to amenities -a short walk into town, 5 mins to the weekly street markets for fresh produce and easy to access from main roads should you be driving.
The host Sandra is bilingual - French and English and was super helpful offering some great tips to enhance our experience.
The house is recently refurbished so all appliances are new and the place is beautifully presented.
If you want accomodation close to the action, clean, comfortable, close to amenities and at the right price then this one comes very highly recommended.
We stayed for a week in August and had a lovely holiday.
We stayed in the Bordeaux apartment which was lovely and clean and bright. The kitchen was very well equipped and had everything we needed to cater for ourselves. The cupboard with herbs, oils, salt and pepper was really great as it saves you buying these out there and then not using most of them! The beds were very comfortable and the kids loved there "bunk" beds!
Took us a little while to find our feet and suss out where we were in relation to the lake, old town and supermarkets but once we had done this we used the bikes everyday which were fantastic as we cycled down to the Imperial Palace beach most days and then on to the old town for lunch then back via the supermarket to buy provisions.
The weather was lovely and hot for our stay (30 degrees). We did spend quite a lot of time in the house in the afternoon and evenings reading and relaxing.
Washing and drying facilities were great - managed to come home with suitcases full of clean clothes - fantastic!
Thank you Sandra for a lovely holiday x
I've been vacationing in France for many years. My Sweet Home in Annecy is by far the most comfortable and pleasant apartment I've ever rented. Each apartment is newly renovated - both charming and chic. The ceilings are very high. There is lots of light coming in from tall French windows with wooden "volets" on the outside that can be closed at night. The kitchen has every tool, utensil and appliance that I ever needed. The bathroom and shower are exceptionally pleasant. The whole apartment was immaculate. Very convenient laundry facilities. There are even several bicycles to choose from as well as helmets and locks.
The owner provided a list of great nearby markets (including outdoor markets) and cafes. She lives nearby and was always available if I had a question during my two-week stay. She really helped to make my stay feel like I was "at home". I highly recommend this apartment!
Sandra has created an amazing home and made us feel incredibly welcome from the moment we arrived in Annecy. The apartment is beautifully appointed and has everything required. The beds are very comfortable, and the kitchen and laundry are well appointed. We felt immediately right at home. The kids enjoyed playing in the yard and garden which is fenced and safe. It is a short, easy walk to everywhere, and there are bikes to go a bit further if desired. This was by far the most beautiful, spacious, light, comfortable place we've ever stayed in Europe. We will definitely be back and would even tailor our trip to be able to stay here again. Thanks for a beautiful holiday.
This is a lovely place to stay in Annecy. The apartment is very clean, well equipped and perfect for a family. It is well located for walking to the historic town and lake. Sandra is very welcoming and exceptionally helpful in making us feel settled. It is a wonderful start to the summer and I know that our month stay here will be over much too quickly. The region has so much to offer for visitors and this is a perfect place from which to begin to explore it. I highly recommend 'My Sweet Home'!
This apartment is beautiful, modern, clean and has all the amenities you need. Seriously 5 stars! The hostess made sure every detail was taken care of. We made use of the fully equipped kitchen and cooked many meals in, taking advantage of the local markets. Walking distance to the lake, old town, and the train station. The exact experience we were looking for in Annecy!
We had a wonderful month in Annecy. The apartment was totally secure and functional with very pleasing decor, comfortable furnishings and plenty of good linen. It's an easy walk to the city center, the lakeside, a big marché and supermarkets. Hostess Sandra was most gracious and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
Ce loft est dans une maison totalement rénové et très bien situé dans Annecy sans souci de parking , le loft est très bien décoré et très fonctionnel.
Nous avons passé un mois dans cet appartement et nous nous sommes senti comme à la maison.
Je recommande ce loft , Sandra la propriétaire est très sympa et est au petits soins.
We loved staying in Sandra's place! We are 2 adults with a 8 month old baby and stayed for 2 months, and the place was perfect for us. The apartment is very baby friendly -
the kids room is great. The house is well equipped and has loads of storage space. There is a big basement which can be used to store sports equipment and bikes. The wooden fireplace is great if the cold mountain air blows at night.
Sandra is a fantastic host. She was very responsive to our questions and gave us lots of good tips about Annecy and the surrounding area.
There's a nice gated garden which kids can safely play in and can be used for eating outside when it's hot.
All in all a great spot, would stay again!
What a great start. Waking up to a great snowfall with the Alps in the foreground. The apartment is comfortable and cozy and convenient to old town. The Lake is a short walk away and skiing only 1 hour down the road. The best of both worlds. Restaurants in town are fantastic! I thank Sandra and the whole family for a lovely experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! We will be back in summer! Thanks again.
