The village has good supplies and a lovely little market. The cottage is beautifully situated with walks all around and stunning views.

                                                                                                      As a family of 5, we had a great week at La Source. The property is very large and spacious in every aspect, and the grounds are very private with lots of different parts to them, including a whole range of different sitting areas for different times of the day. The view to Les Trois Becs mountain are stunning. The kids (aged 13, 15, 17) loved having their own "apartment" on the 2nd floor - very nicely self contained with its own front door (locking), bathroom and 3 bedrooms. Some aspects of the property make it less suitable for young kids, but for the ages our kids are, it was great. One slight reassurance for teenagers - the house information pack mentions pay-as-you-go WiFi, but I think this is old, as there is free (and reasonably good, but don't live-stream too much!) WiFi in the house (better signal at the lower floors). It's an easy 10 minute walk into the village along a very quiet road. The scenery is great, too. It's the edge of the Vercors, so limestone mountains, cliffs and (via relatively short drives) some amazing gorges and mountain roads. The pool is just great - it's at the rear of the property, very private, very clean, and a good size. There is a large table and chairs under the plane tree on the terrace outside the kitchen/dining room which is very quintessentially French and a wonderful place for eating outdoors, and it's made all the more pretty by the coloured patio lights draped in the trees. The castle tower at Crest is worth going up, and for a good hike, head up to Les Trois Becs (head out of Saillans on the D156 and park at Col de la Chaudière - be warned though, the car park fills up by around 09.30). We hiked to the highest of the Becs, Le Veyou - the views are stunning. There is a good charcoal barbecue and tools, an additional fridge in the store room for cold drinks). The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need and there is plenty of crockery, etc, and the essentials like dishwasher and washing machine. Also be sure to visit the various vineyard "caves" to try and buy the local (sparkling) wine, Clairette de Die. Our favourite was 10 minutes towards Die, Carod Freres. Communications with the owners were also excellent, and their onsite contact, Laura, also popped around to show us a few things and answer some questions. She lives just a couple of properties along.
