Many properties are described using the French phrase “coup de coeur”, but for this stunning stone house it really is an accurate description. Renovated to a high standard in 2012/2013, it has many features that aren’t often found in old village properties of this kind: generous terrace with ample space for a bbq, dining table and sun loungers; double garage; under-floor heating; an energy rating of C thanks in large part to the roof and insulation being replaced in 2012; and lots of storage space. However, this house has lost none of its charm as a result of being refurbished. Modern fixtures and fittings are an excellent compliment to original features such as the characterful beams.

The village of Messery itself is very popular. The kindergarten is well-regarded, as are the infant (maternelle) and junior (primaire) schools. There is a well-stocked small supermarket, two bakeries, a butcher, two hairdressers, a beautician, a doctor’s surgery, a pharmacy, a library, a tourist office, as well as a bar and restaurants.

In summer, Messery beach down by the lakeside has its own snack bar. It’s also possible to rent stand up paddle boards and kayaks.

You can reach the Swiss border at Hermance in 13 minutes by car approx. (8km), and Geneva in 35 minutes approx. (24km). So it’s commutable on a daily basis. The Swiss town of Nyon is a 20-minute ferry ride from neighbouring Yvoire.

Indeed, the beautiful lake-front medieval villages of Yvoire and Nernier are just 5 minutes approx. away by car (3km and 3.5km), offering lots of choice for restaurants and bars.

The world-famous spa town of Evian-les-Bains is also only 31km (approx. 38 minutes) away by road. Perfect for a day trip.

For mountain lovers, the twelve resorts of the renowned Portes du Soleil area, with their 286 pistes for skiing and snowboarding in winter, and activities like hiking and mountain biking in summer, are easily accessible by car for the day (e.g. Morzine is 52km/58 minutes approx. and Les Gets is 56km/1 hour approx). Chamonix is 90km/1 hour 5 minutes approx. by car.
