An undiscovered gem in the French Alpes

  • 5 of 5

Last week seven Dutchmen went on a crazy road trip to Bourg d' Oisans to cycle the Alpes. We stayed in the chalet and had a fantastic time. The chalet is tidy, spacious and well-equipped (full kitchen, wireless internet, board and card games etc.). The scenary is amazing and it is only a 3 minutes walk from the chalet to the centre and 5 minutes to a large groceries store.

The owners even took care of little things like sending us maps in advance but also a complimentary welcome package upon arriving. Definitely we can recommend this chalet for a stay, even if you are not into cycling.

An idyllic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Fantastic, comfy Chalet in a great location

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed in the Chalet for a weeks cycling while the Tour de France passed (very) nearby. The Chalet was welcoming and comfy with everything you could possibly need, a garage for bikes and even UK TV - brilliant!

Adeana is helpful far beyond all expectations and helped immensely while planning our holiday.

If you want a top holiday in a quality property, do not hesitate to book this one!
