Le Repaire, (the hideout in english) is a beautifully renovated 18th century stone farmhouse. It's tucked away in the Chartreuse mountains just 10km outside historic Grenoble. Virtually completely private; no neighboring houses. Totally quiet, you can hear a pin drop. This house is the perfect place for a writers retreat. The house is well situated to hiking in the summer and both down-hilll and cross country skiing in the winter. There are 3 ski stations within 20min drive and when there's sufficient snow, you can cross country ski right from the house. The house has high-speed (roughly 20mbps download speed) internet. It's heated with electric and wood. There is a lovely wood burning stove in the living room. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Upstairs there are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen size futon mattress on a tatami platform. It's quite firm. The other bedroom has 2 single beds (a trundle bed in fact). The upstairs bathroom has a large bath tub suitable for two. Downstairs off the living room, there is a bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is modern with a glass top halogen stove top and a microwave oven. Plates, glasses, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and pans are provided, everything you should need. There is a drip coffee maker as well. On the terrace, there is a table and chairs should you wish to eat outdoors. We always used to love eating out doors whenever we could. The house is suitable for children, however with very young children, we do not have child barriers on the stairs. Pets are acceptable. Please note that for the moment there is no television.
Penny and Mike bought Le Repaire in 1997. It had not been lived in for about 80 years. It was used primarily as a holiday home. When we bought it, it had no hot water, only one tap, and electricity that had been installed so long ago that the wires were covered in fabric! We gutted the house and completely renovated it doing most of the work ourselves while living in it. It took 10 years. We brought up our daughter in the house, she still loves to come back to the place to play in her special spot in the woods.

It's so rare to find a house in such a beautiful location that you can't see your neighbors. (There are houses not far away but you can't see them from the property). We bought the house because we had a vision about what we could do to the place, what we could turn it into. I think we achieved that.
It's so quiet in the house and around the property. You can hear a pin drop. It's away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's in a region which is just filled with things to do out doors.
Lovely surroundings, beautiful view and a cosy great house to live in,we had a fantastic time staying in and viziting local areas also Grenoble and Sky resorts

Chalet très agréable et chaleureux. Bien équipé et seulement à 10 km de Grenoble.
Wir haben sehr angenehme Tage in dem einsam und idyllisch liegenden Ferienhaus in den Bergen verbracht. Nach diversen Gipfeleroberungen bei bestem Wetter mit Blick auf das gigantische Alpenpanorama konnten wir aber auch ein paar Regentage in dem gemütlichen Haus verbringen. Der Kamin brachte wohlige Wärme und in der Küche fehlte es uns an nichts, sodass uns die leckeren Mahlzeiten über das trübe Wetter hinweg halfen. Das Haus liegt in Alleinlage, aber dennoch nahe (ca. 10-12 km) an Grenoble, dort bieten sich viele verschiedene Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Die vielen Kurven und die grandiose Aussicht werden uns noch lange in Erinnerung bleiben. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen und kommen sehr gerne wieder!

Wir haben sehr angenehme Tage in dem idyllischen Ferienhaus in den Bergen verbracht. Nach diversen Gipfeleroberungen bei tollem Wetter hatten wir auch ein paar Regentage, an denen wir es uns im Haus richtig gemütlich gemacht haben. Der Kamin brachte wohlige Wärme und in der Küche fehlte es uns an nichts, sodass die leckeren Mahlzeiten uns über das trübe Wetter hinweg halfen. Das Haus liegt in Alleinlage, aber trotzdem nahe an Grenoble mit zahlreichen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, die vielen Kurven dorthin und die grandiose Aussichten werden uns noch lange in Erinnerung bleiben. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!
The house is situated close enough to Grenoble to have easy access to a large city with many fine restaurants, bars and entertainment, yet in the mountains close to outdoor recreation with solitude and mountain views in a peaceful setting. Rare to be so close to town yet so much in the wilderness. No view of the neighbors. In fact, the only house you can see is on the other side of the valley!
