Property of the Week


MGM French Properties launch a luxury development, Jardin Olga in the sublime lakeside city of Annecy. The medieval city is nestled between the pristine Lake Annecy and the Annecy mountains, providing its residents with an exceptional standard of living, with year round activities on the shores or the slopes. The collection of 42 apartments comprises of one, two, three and four-bedroom properties. Prices for a four-bedroom begins at €945,000.

The striking new development is in a sought-after location on Chemin des Fins Nord, a peaceful tree lined street, near the city centre. Designed in a contemporary style the building is both modern and in line with its urban setting. Jardin Olga has many traditional architectural features of Annecy, with large loggia terraces allowing sunlight to flood the apartments, creating a warm and inviting ambience. At the centre of the development is an exceptional landscaped garden, designed to provide residents with a tranquil escape in the heart of the city just seconds from their apartments.

Laurent Hallez, Sales Manager at MGM French Properties comments, “Jardin Olga is in the perfect position for families looking to be near the buzz of the city centre, yet still in a peaceful neighbourhood.

“Annecy has a long standing reputation with British buyers who are in the know about ‘the Pearl of the Alps’. Lakeside living and the forty minute commute into nearby busier Geneva, where many of the expat community works, gives residents the perfect balance between alpine and city life at Annecy and you can be at the nearby ski resorts in thirty minutes.”

The refined contemporary architecture of the exterior is mirrored in the interior design, providing families with MGM French Properties signature style of refined luxury and thoughtful design choices. The homes feature spacious open plan living areas and sleek kitchens with fully integrated appliance. French doors lead out onto either a loggia or terrace, which offer stunning views of the mountains and surrounding town, ideal for those who enjoy dining alfresco. Bedrooms feature built-in sliding wardrobes and oak parquet flooring, while bathrooms are fully fitted to include vanity units with basin and mirror. Additionally, each apartment also benefits from an indoor garage and a private cellar.

The city was crowned as the best place to live in France in 2020, following a two-year survey, conducted by the Villes et Villages où il fait bon vivre Association comparing France’s 35,000 cities, towns and villages. The city provides its residents with an extraordinary standard of living, rich in culture, world-class leisure facilities and excellent public transport.

Occupying a prime position between the lake and the mountains, Annecy has long been regarded as the jewel of the Haute-Savoie region. The city has retained and restored much of its original medieval architecture and has also been called the ‘Venice of the Alps’, due to the three canals stretching across the city and many bridges filled with flowers in bloom throughout the year.

Remarkably, 40% of Annency is made up of green spaces and the city holds the “The Golden Flower” award, given to France’s nine most flowered city. Relaxed evenings can be spent exploring the Jardins de l’Europe and Pâquier Esplanade, two open air gardens on the shores of the lake and if you are looking for food, pastries, baguettes and cold meats can be purchased from the local market stalls.

The city surrounds Lake Annecy, a beautiful glacial lake, known for its pristine waters and it is among the cleanest in Europe. The famous lake is a draw for both tourists and locals alike, with an extensive array of water based activities available including, scuba diving, water skiing, paddle-boarding and sailing. The surrounding hills are excellent for those looking to undertake hikes and there are many popular bike trails weaving throughout the alpine forests.

For those drawn to the snow-capped mountains surrounding the lake, nearby ski resorts, Semnoz and les Aravis are just 30km away and Les Gets and Chamonix are both just over an hour away.

For international purchasers, Geneva International Airport offers hundreds of flights each week from the UK and across Europe and is a forty-minute drive from the city.
