About the property

4 Storey Holiday Home Full Of Rustic Charm For Simple Stay with stunning views

Our holiday house has a cosy home from home feel as it is a much loved family holiday house which we are pleased to share. Please SUBMIT ENQUIRY before booking as we prefer payment by Bank Transfer (Euros or UK bank)or P Pal.

The house sleeps 4 in 2 double bed bedrooms (open attic can provide additional sleep space in summer). Over 4 storeys with kitchen/lounge on ground , then up to double bedroom (shower ensuite), up again to another double (ensuite shower) and the toilet room, then up to top for open summer room with veranda with views of Alpe D'huez. This a great place to relax after walking or cycling with ipod, guitars, hammock, books and games. Wifi is available in house on MIFI ( Summer) and also available in most bars in the village. At present we do not have a separate secure area for bikes (people have locked in vans/or brought inside at night).

The house, now privately owned by our family, was staff accommodation for the Hotel Florentin. Although you're close to bars and shops, down the alley way is great retreat with excellent views form the attic.

Outside, there is some outdoor space for table in alleyway… feel free to pick from our small herb garden. The accommodation is at rear of Hotel Florentin (now closed) with shared space for table by house.

Although in the centre of the village, it is a quiet position for a relaxing holiday. If needed there are electric fires in each room and plenty hot water. There are 2 mountain bikes, guitars, ipod player available for your use with care.

Due to the 3 storeys and narrow stairs, the house is NOT suitable for anyone who has difficulty with stairs and toddlers. Please note, is a 'cosy' sized house , simple and characterful for a home from home stay. The kitchen/lounge area are in one room, both bedrooms have a double bed (the 1st floor bedroom is smaller than the 2nd floor bedroom), plus a large attic room with veranda for relaxing.

About Janette & Graham

Our house has been in the family for some years ... originally bought as a base for skiing by brother Stephen and friends. Once all the family discovered the delights of the area in summer we all visit at times with our children and friends as often as work allows. None of us are cyclists despite it being so popular but we do enjoy picnicking, exploring the waterfalls, playing music and some gentle bike rides.

Janette & Graham purchased this house in 1985

Why Janette & Graham chose Le Bourg-d'Oisans

The house really works for all the family... it is close to the local bars, shops and restaurants and yet you're surrounded by the most stunning scenery. Within an hour you have ancient cities, museums, shopping, swimming lakes, rivers with beaches & waterfalls. We all love nature, wine, art, culture and shopping ... it's all here!

What makes this house unique

We recently converted the attic to create what we call our Moroccan Room ... an open room, place to chill out in ... with 2 guitars, ipods, hammock, books and a veranda for views up to Alpe D'Huez. Guests are welcome to use the 2 mountain bikes for gentle cycling (not for mountain biking) . Although it does not have a garden we do have space for table/chairs by the house in the alley.

Town House In The Heart Of Bourg D'Oisans - 2 Double Bedrooms & Veranda Views
average rating of 4.78125 based on 32 reviews

Adorable house in heart of Bourg d'Oisans

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in at the town house was lovely. The house is small, but well appointed. Lots of charm and character, and everything you could possibly need - a real home away from home. The location was fantastic, just a stone's throw away from plenty of bakeries, restaurants, and cafes (as well as perfect location for cycling in the area). The kitchen was well equipped so that you can cook meals with ease. Plenty of hot water for showers, and a must-needed washing machine! The veranda on the top floor was very cool indeed (shame we had some cold weather that we couldn't fully use this floor). It was unusually cold for our September stay, but the house has electric blankets, and electric heaters that make everything so cosy. Janette was a wonderful host, and responded to our every need extremely promptly. Would highly recommend this town house for your stay in Bourg. Thanks Janette!

Cute centrally placed house in Bourg D'Oisans!

  • 4 of 5

Ease of communication with Janette and excellent instructions for getting to the house. Centrally located property with a beautiful outlook in the roof. The kitchen was well equipped and plenty of larder items to help with cooking.

Bed was so comfy and electric blankets in place which for the time of year we went made it really comfortable.

The outside of the house is so nicely done too.

lovely place.

A home in the heart of Bourg

  • 5 of 5

Janette's house is full of charm, character and thoughtful touches. This is a home, not a soulless rental. The position is great , you're a hop skip and jump from buying your morning croissant or pottering out of an evening for a dance at the Cafe de Paris.

Excellent charming French cottage in the heart of the villagd

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is excellent, two well sized double bedrooms, a nice kitchen/living area and roof terrace room with lovely views over the mountains. Great, central location in Bourg d'Oisans. Just watch the steep, narrow staircases!

Lovely and slightly quirky townhouse in an ideal base for cycling the cols

  • 4 of 5

This was a great little find and ideal location for a cycling holiday to experience alpe d'huez and other amazing climbs which are all rideable from the house. The house is right in the centre of the town for bars, shops and restaurants but it's still quiet enough to relax. There's a cosy living room with kitchen and 2 double bedrooms. The attic has an amazing viewing platform to look across the alps with a post ride beer. Would defo visit again.
