The apartment was lovely with a fabulous view. You can hear street noise, as well as music from across the lake. It was great for watching the hang gliders, and Sophie was so nice during our check in and out.
The overall quality of this property is excellent. And Duingt is a wonderful location, better than Annecy. The major drawback is that it's situated directly above the main road around the lake, and the traffic noise is incessant. This problem is well mitigated however, as the French doors have insulated glass and all openings are solidly shuttered. It's very quiet when you button it up. There are two glorious balconies, but if you plan to spend time there, bring noise-cancelling headphones, which I had and used with great pleasure. But, that's the price of having the Tour de France pass right under the balcony!
The kitchen is quite minimal, and this is not a place for a serious chef, but there is really very little reason to cook in France, because the prepared foods in the nearby grocery and markets are, of course, fabulous! The building is modern, clean and well maintained. The parking situation is excellent. In the two months I spent here, there were a couple of maintenance issues which were immediately and properly dealt with by the owners.
All in all, this is a wonderful property and I highly recommend it. Vive la France!
