How to choose your bed and breakfast in Annecy
Bed and breakfasts are becoming increasingly popular as a low-cost holiday accommodation option. We offer you some advice to make the right choice in the Annecy area.
Many bed and breakfasts have been awarded a label, which is a guarantee of quality, as they have to meet strict specifications. These labels are the following: Fleurs de Soleil, La Clef Verte, Gîtes de France and also Clévacances. Most guest houses do not have any labels, but they do offer quality services.
Before booking, ask the owner as many questions as possible to avoid misunderstandings. Distance from Annecy, internet connection, breakfast included, room facilities, parking are all essential. The Annecy region is very touristy, so bookings for bed and breakfasts and gîtes should be made several months in advance for a summer booking. It is also important to check whether there are any services not included in the price, and the conditions of cancellation.
A bed and breakfast is a special type of accommodation, it is not a hotel or a rental. It is necessary to adapt to the rules of the owner of the premises. Late night returns are often not accepted. Meals are often taken at fixed times.
You can now choose your room or guest house with a view on the lake, in the city of Annecy, or more in the countryside, in the mountains, with a swimming pool.
