Temporary stay in or near Annecy

We are a British couple from Edinburgh  (age 58) who are looking to spend some time in or around Annecy between August and November   this year – about 12  weeks. The principal aims are  to  practice our French language, cycle, golf and travel around the area.

We have been looking at a house to rent in Saint Jorioz. Does anyone know the area? Does it have facilities such as tennis/sports clubs or would we need to go into Annecy itself?
Is it easy to get to know the locals/expats?
Apart from Se Loger and Le Bon Coin are there any other agents who may be able to help us?
