Le Clos Marsel hotel on lake Annecy, France

Hotel review – Le Clos Marsel in Duingt, Lake Annecy

This article contains compensated links, please read my disclaimer for more information.

We stayed at the hotel Le Clos Marsel on our road trip through France during our summer vacation. This gorgeous hotel was located 15 min drive from Annecy in a village called Duingt. It had a private beach on Lake Annecy, 5* restaurant, outside hot tub, only 14 rooms, excellent service, and a beautiful room with a beautiful view! I was so lucky to find and book it – as they had only one room left.

Our room with annex

The hotel had only 14 rooms – 7 on the ground floor with a patio and 7 on the second floor with a balcony. Our room had an annex with double bed, a beautiful bathroom on the entrance floor, a double bed and huge glass doors to the balcony with beautiful view.

The view

The hotel had a 5* star restaurant with amazing French cuisine – the prices were accordingly 🙂 The restaurant had a waiting list on weekends and I recommend you to book a table even if you are a guest at the hotel.
The hotel is located 10-15 min car drive to Annecy and 20 min to the hiking trails on the other side of the lake.

Hotel’s own beach front, as seen from the lakeside. You can relax on sun beds or have a drink and snack under the trees. You also get huge towels for free.

I would personally recommend this hotel – because our stay here was amazing, despite the awful weather during our second night. And if you are unlucky with the weather like we were, you can always stay inside the hotel and play some table hockey or read a magazine while you have a glass of French wine.
