There's No Place Like...Tresoms,Annecy.

Summer has seamlessly slipped into fall here and I have yet to share my fabulous weekend at the "Picture Postcard Perfect": Les Tresoms, Lake and Spa Resort on the Lake of Annecy.

It is perched on high with a breathtaking view of the lake and mountains and tucked within the folds of a lush forest.

This stay was a Xmas gift from my sister and her husband and one we were embracing as an opportunity to get away from the crowds ,heat and unrelenting mosquito's. We were given a ground floor room which is never something I accept...but once we walked in and saw the view from of the open window onto the lawn and then further, to the lake and mountain we sank on to the bed and sighed.


Go for the spa...go for the activities ....Sports fanatics unit for all sorts of great daily escapades and then sink into the pool  and enjoy the spa facilities at your finger tips. There are 2 restaurants:La Rotonde, a gastronomic delight or La Coupole ,the brasserie and breakfast room. 
We enjoyed our gastronomic dinner but...it simply lasted too long when the wait for dessert was interminable . We tried to leave and pay the bill unsuccessfully: .."just as you try to leave...they pulled us back in..."with chocolate....those philistines!
There was a little too much liberal use of flowers and gold leaf in the dishes for our taste and we had a hard time swallowing a rare piece of langoustine...but all in all a truly lovely culinary experience.


Great room, fantastic bathroom with the biggest shower I have ever seen and believe me when I tell you how much I enjoyed using it and looking out at the distant mountain top. Heaven.

Breakfast is large and generous with everything you can think of and more, beautifully and artfully arranged all around "The Coupole" using props such as an old wooden sledge.We haven't been this spoilt for choice since our last stay at The Pulitzer in Amsterdam and breakfast there is legendary.

Staff are super friendly and more importantly,very accommodating.
We had a fabulous time and we have Les Tresoms to thank for it...a must stay.
