Cyclist's Dream Home
I can not wait until our next stay in this wonderful house! I would recommend this property to any family or group of cyclists who want a great location in a quiet comfortable setting. It was a pleasure to come home to cook in a wonderful kitchen after a long day in the saddle and relax in the yard. We enjoyed the comfortable beds. The owner was very responsive and helped make this the best vacation ever!

Great house near the centre of Bourg d'Oisans
This house had everything we wished for. Enough space, complete equipment and more than enough beds. We had a great week while participating at Alpe d'Huzes. This was a great experience.
The safe for the key for the front door was really usefull.

An idyllic place to stay
We first saw this house when strolling along the other side of the river two years ago. Some children were playing in the garden and splashing around. We thought it would an idyllic place to stay. This year we did indeed stay here. And it fulfilled all our hopes. But it is not just the situation which is just right. It is a lovely, comfortable, well-cared-for, well-appointed house. Everything has been thought about. We were treated with respect, as if we really were guests. A perfect stay. Thank you.

perfect base for a sportsholiday
This is a perfect accomodation for getting out and cycle the Alpes. We have stayed here with a group of friends and had a perfect homebase with it. The evening with the BBQ on fire and the Casino supermarket close by were a guarantee for nice meals. This gave us the energy to go out for cycling every day. We will not hesitate to choose this accomodation again the next time!
Thank you. We are pleased the chalet had all you needed and that you enjoyed the area for cycling. There is plenty to do in the Winter months too as we are in easy access of Alpe d'Huez, Vaujany and Les Deux Alps for skiing. Adeana and John
