Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Upon arrival we noticed a very strong smell of mold to which my wife is extremely sensitive. After notifying the owner that we may have to vacate if staying upstairs with the bedroom door closed didn't help, the owner said they would try to have someone come around, but nobody came.
Although the smell dissipated somewhat after airing the place out, my wife had congestion and burning in her eyes and lungs the next morning. After informing the owner of our need to vacate the property the owner abandoned all pretense of sympathy and stated, “I am sorry that you are not feeling well but to be honest it seems somewhat far fetched to blame that on our house. If for whatever reason you feel you cannot stay that is up to you but I will not be issuing a refund unless there is a fundamental problem with the house that makes it uninhabitable.”
To use her words, we had literally just stated a fundamental problem with the house that made it uninhabitable, but since she found it “far fetched,” she flatly said she wouldn't issue us a refund for the remaining two nights even though we'd not yet asked for it. We attempted to educate her on the danger of mold to people with sensitivities, providing a link to a reputable medical source but she didn't respond. Her ignorance regarding mold and health issues did nothing for our bliss, and her complete lack of understanding basically cost us double since we to rent another property. She also stated there was nothing wrong with the property even though she wasn't there and no one had come around to check on the property until the moment we were leaving.
Additionally, the property was noticeably dirty, a particular irony due to the long list of requirements for the renter from the housekeeper no less on all steps to be taken to leave the property clean upon leaving. Also, after asking for a discount from the price since there was only going to be two of us, not ten, using only one bedroom, there was an additional cleaning fee imposed that amounted to the size of the discount. A followup check on the listing revealed that a cleaning fee wasn't even part of the rental so we ended up with no discount whatsoever.
Unfortunately we cannot recommend this property. A shame since the area is stunningly beautiful.

All good, nice house, brilliant location
Great base for cycling break
We stayed in the Granary House for 4 nights as a base for a cycling break. The property is ideally located in a quiet back street of Bourg d'Oisans and was perfect size for our group of 6 blokes. The house was clean, tidy and well furnished and equipped. A useful feature for us was access to the cellar where you could store bike-boxes and bikes out of the way.
In all my dealings with the owner I found them very friendly and helpful, including organising a late check-out for us at short notice.
Would go back to this property - a good find!
Beautiful house, great location
We had a lovely stay during our holiday. The house has a lot of rooms and 2 bathrooms which it’s great with a large group.
We went skiing during our stay and it was a 25min drive from house to the ski lifts.
Good location. As described. Church bells bit noisy. Good if towels provided too.
Nothing was wrong but advertising it as a 5 star property is not even close
We stayed here for the Tour De France and as I said there was nothing wrong but its not 5 star.We arrived to find there were no towels and the beds were not made up( we have stayed in Europe many times this is the first time I have encountered this).The location was great and the town is quaint.Upon getting our arrival instructions the note said all of these things we must do which I have encountered before but did not expect for a night.The note was actually written from the Housekeeper who claims she cleans the cheapest in the whole town(Unsettling as a guest in a "5 star" property) The place was certainly not spic and spam as there were cob webs etc,
Also after we booked we had questions on how to view the race,transportation etc which the owners had no answers(Not 5 star).....When you own a home rental(As we do in Vail CO) in a town its your job to know whats happening and how to do it........Again these are not major complaints but has to be said.I hope this is taken to heart to better the next guests stay.
