We spent a great week in the recent heatwave at this lovely, quiet gîte. Rustic and quite simply furnished, it is well equipped (dishwasher, washing machine, wi-fi etc) and comfortable. Everything worked fine. Seemed bigger than the photos suggested. We are a couple but there's plenty of room for a family. Don't forget to bring bed sheets (we did!).
Views across valley and surrounding peaks from some of the upstairs windows and there is a small, grassy garden with table and chairs - we ate outside a lot. The owners live opposite, speak some English and were very welcoming, friendly and helpful, suggesting several local walks/hikes, and historic sites, etc. The property is in a hamlet a couple of kms from Villard de Lans and there are cycling and walking tracks almost outside, plus an Intermarche supermarket not far away! Ideal base for a quiet retreat or for active, outdoor people - lots of action sports and outdoor activities in the area. Also good for fauna and flora (black redstarts nest in the barn opposite). Happy memories from our week's stay there.
Being next to a private adult club, the area seemed a bit dubious but we had no problems. The shower holder was broken however the owner was quick to respond to our queries but unfortunately he was on holiday and was unable to do much at short notice
