Christiane and Roland made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived on a very hot day. We were welcomed with drinks, home baking, wine and genuine hospitality. The accommodation was to a very high standard with everything that we needed. There were dining and seating areas both inside and outside on the wrap around balcony providing areas to retreat from the sun when needed. We so enjoyed sitting out in the evenings and playing cards with the children over a glass of wine while the sun went down over the mountains. The area is well placed for travelling around the Chartreuse mountains and the amenities of the local town were a very short drive away. I would definitely recommend this gite. Thank you Christiane and Roland. We would definitely return to your lovely gite. Sorry our French was not a little better! Thanks Lesley, Simon, Ashley and Mia

It was clean, spacious, good cooking facilities and perfectly situated. I would happily recommend this apartment and if I was going back to Alp d Huez which I will be doing I would see if this apartment was free first
