I was born in Cannes, a city where millions of people would like to live. Ah! La Croisette, Suquet, Forville market, rue Meynadier, rue d'Antibes, Place de l'Etang. People dream about it ... But there. There is in France a small town further north, at the edge of a lake, one of the most beautiful lakes in our country, probably the purest. I want to talk about Annecy, the Venice of the Alps. I arrived there in 1978 when I left the Principality of Monaco where I began my profession of interior designer. A great opportunity had allowed me a few years ago to do an internship at one of Annecy's well-known interior designers and I had discovered this wonderful, beautiful region that is Haute Savoie. I was dazzled by this nature, fat, luminous, lush, these forests of majestic fir trees, these green pastures, the sound of the clarines carried by these cows with the milk so rich, marveled by this lake with the colors so changing, sometimes dark with days of storms and blue caribbean by these beautiful sunny days, the reflection in the early morning, when the surface is mirror, the Tournette and Teeth Lanfon. And then the old town, the Perriere Bridge and the Old Prisons, a unique point of view, photographed by millions of people during their stays, the Bridge of Love and the Canal du Vassé, emblematic sites of our city. It is good to walk in these pedestrian streets steeped in history, to discover, at the turn of a small passage, a canal that crosses our city peacefully and on which wander white swans, ducks and coots. And then, there is also the call of the mountain, hiking, skiing, climbing, paragliding, and I forget ... And gastronomy, let's talk about it! Raclettes, fondues, tartiflette, farings, diots, and the avalanche of cheeses, reblochon, tome, emmental, beaufort, abundance ... It is not for nothing that Annecy and surroundings offer number of starred restaurants, some of which have a reputation international! Come to discover this magnificent region, it will offer you pleasure and wonder. I will make it a real pleasure to receive you and offer you, among a wide choice, the good you dreamed and that will fill you. Arvi!
I lived at the time in Roquebrune-Cap Martin and worked in the Principality of Monaco. Born in Cannes, I practically never went to the beach and never did sailing or any water sports. When I had to do my military service, I asked to be an alpine hunter in a town or a mountain village, Briançon, Bour Saint Maurice, Annecy, but when I received my assignment order, what was not my surprise: I was assigned to the 22nd BCA (Alpine Hunter Battalion) in Nice, 30 km from my home! ... And mountain, I did ... I have always loved the mountain, much more than this beautiful stretch of water that is the Mediterranean Sea. I did my studies of interior architecture in Nice, and during these studies, I had the opportunity to do an internship in Annecy, city where I settled young married a few years later. I have lived here for many years, my four children were born there, and I feel today almost more savoyard than Mediterranean! I worked for nearly ten years in an interior design agency whose main client was His Majesty King Hassan II of Morocco. Wonderful experience, magnificent projects, private residences of His Majesty the King, palaces, hotels, conference centers and much more. Then, I created my own agency, and I happened to make amazing projects! It must have been 90 or 91, I did a mega-yacht project for Mr. Donald Trump, the Trump Princess. And yes ! And now I am a commercial real estate agent, and with my experience in interior architecture, I would be very happy to be able to support you in your new acquisition that I would have had the pleasure to tell you through our agency Leggett Real Estate.View French-Alps Information Homepage
