Guestbook



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!

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!

Jessica Binns, 

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.

Joan Gratz, 

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.

Elena, 

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!

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..

Paul Stewart, 

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.

Paul Griffin, 

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

Sara Hindry, 

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!

Debbie P, 

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.

Rebecca Adler, 

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.

Mike & Anne Morley-Fletcher, 

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'!

Rebecca, 

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!

Vivian Yuen, 

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.

Elaine and Andrew Bennett, 

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.

Leroy, 

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!

Jack Potter, 

Absolutely wonderful spot! We stayed here for 3 months in 2016, and came back again for 3 months in 2017. It is a lovely and pristine home, the beds are really comfortable, and there is a nice view of the mountains. The location is great in that everything is within walking distance (groceries, the lake, the old town). Also, the owner provided is with bikes to explore town which was perfect. We will definitely be back again!

Fiona, 


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.
