Having a heated pool was a real treat and meant we were able to use it much later into the evening. We hope to return one day & enjoy another glass wine overlooking the mountains. Thank you Florence & family for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Village was quiet this time of year but wasn't a problem as you're close to L'Alpe d'Huez and Bourg D'oisans which have plenty of restaurants, shops etc. Weather was great apart from one day but we found a great little indoor swimming pool in Vaujany. Thanks Avril, We'll be back as soon as we can!
