We had a fantastic few days staying at the house and cycling in the surrounding countryside. The house itself is in a beautiful, peaceful location next to the church and is spacious, cool and has lovely features. Sitting out in the garden in the evening as the sun went down and watching the resident owl was magical. The Jura countryside is spectacular, particularly the Ain valley and gorge. Thank you Jes - and a particular thank you for the bottles of local wine.
We spend nearly a week in this nice, with love renovated town house that was once part of an old abbey. The church is right on the opposite of the entrance door and the market place is just under the terrace on the other side. Everything is exact like in the upper description. Everything was clean and neat. We just felt at home when we entered the door. We had Pizza on Saturday evening, bought our bread and things in the local supermarket and took a lot of walks around the village with our little dog.
The only little disadvantage was, that one of the rooms has to be passed through to get in the other rooms.
The people living around are friendly and welcoming. We once had to call someone for picking up his straying dog (please say hello to this really friendly dog named Scooby Doo if he visits You!) and we just rang at a house for someone making the phone call for us in French since our French is not so well and the lady was very friendly and not curious about us and just called the owner.
This place is full of history as well as the whole area. We visited several churches and the grotto of Baume les Messieurs. You have to go there when You come there! And don´t forget to by the lovely cheese from Saint Julien!
We would recommend this gite for everyone!
