La vie est faite de petits bonheurs



Welcome to our website!
How nice that you are interested in ‘Le Paradis des Gen(t)s’. Here we would like to tell you more about our rooms, the beautiful region of Haute Savoie and the surroundings of Seyssel. Located at 450 meters altitude of ‘Le Mont des Princes’ and with a beautiful view over the Rhone Valley you will find our Bed & Breakfast in the small hamlet Prairod. A place to relax and enjoy the French life.

About us

Of course we would first like to tell you something about ourselves. We are Yvonne & Joris van Gent and are living in France since 2019. After first living in the beautiful historical city of Annecy for two years, we moved to the countryside in May 2021 together with our dogs Marley & Abby. In Prairod we bought a beautifully renovated and modernised ‘ferme’ (anno 1734). On the top floor of our house are two luxury rooms that we rent out as Chambres d’Hôtes. Both rooms have their own entrance and a fantastic view on the valley of Seyssel, the Rhône and the Grand Colombier.


Le Paradis des Gen(t)s is located on a closed private property (5000 m2) surrounded by a large garden with several levels. Here you will find the guest terrace, a petanque court, an orchard with fruit trees and many beautiful views. There are several private parking spaces available.

The picturesque village of Seyssel is a five-minute drive away. In Seyssel there are several artisan bakeries, small cafes, nice restaurants with terraces along the Rhone, shops and a large supermarket. Geneva and Annecy can be reached within 40 minutes by car.
Lake Bourget, Aix-les-Bains and Chanaz are also within easy reach from our house. Mont Blanc is visible (in good weather conditions) from various vantage points in the area.

The rooms

The Haute Savoie Suite and the Montmartre Suite are very spacious rooms of 38m2 each. Both rooms are equipped with a luxury box spring (180 x 200), comfortable seating, Smart TV, WiFi, Nespresso machine, kettle, fridge, hairdryer and a modern bathroom with shower and separate toilet. Each room has large French balcony doors.

The room rate is € 135.00 per night, including extensive breakfast (and tourist tax).

Unfortunately pets are not allowed in the rooms. We do have two dogs, but they are not allowed in the Chambres d’Hôtes or on the guest terrace.


Enjoy a customized massage, facial or body treatment in your room, in the garden or on the roof terrace. For this we have a very nice cooperation with Charline Dekens, founder of ‘Une Pure Détente’. Feel free to ask us for more information about the various treatments.


The surroundings of Le Paradis des Gen(t)s offer all the ingredients for a wonderful holiday. The Saint Jacques de Compostelle walking route runs right under our house and the village of Seyssel is situated on the beautiful cycling route through the Rhone Valley; the ViaRhôna. Besides hiking and biking, action lovers can also indulge themselves here. In the region, there are plenty of possibilities for water sports (canoeing, kayaking, sailing, kite surfing, swimming), horseback riding of fishing. Or enjoy the ‘couleur locale’ at the markets and brocantes.

Experience wine tasting in one of the wineries of the Seyssel region. A visit to Chateau Clermont or a city trip to Annecy or Geneva are also worthwhile. Everything is possible. Discovering the gastronomic delights of the region, practicing various sports or simply enjoying the tranquility and the beautiful nature. Le Paradis des Gen(t)s is an ideal place for this. We are happy to welcome you and tell you more about the possibilities in our beautiful region.
