Great location for cycling the Maurienne Mountains
During the first week of August 2013 we stayed in this house with a group of 8 people; 2 women and 6 men (two families and Pino). The reason for us going to the Maurienne were the exquisite circumstances for cycling, while the women would take their change to climb mountains by foot. For cyclists this location is perfect, both during the day (steep mountain roads to ride) as during the evenings when one needs to recover from riding or walking through the mountains.
The house is connected to the one of the neighbors but that does not cause any problem. Probably walls are that thick that no sound can pass through it. The house has 4 large sleeping rooms and can occupy 10 to 12 (or more) people. Two nice bathroom are situated on the first and second floor. So it was very spacious for our group. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is a balcony and small terrace to enjoy the sun after climbing the mountain tops. To complete the scene a garden is provided on the hill side next to the house. We could use the large garage for storing our bikes and transportation equipment.
I can’t remember there was a negative thing about this location. Only 300 m from the 'city centre' of St. Michel with all necessary shops and a supermarket. Also the owner was pleasant to deal with (French only). We all loved staying there and had a fantastic week.
