Spacious family rental with friendly generous hosts

  • 4 of 5

The property is very well equipped and spacious. It is located in pleasant surroundings with fruit trees and gardens to the side and rear. It is a shame that some of the original character of the house has been lost during renovations. High-spec kitchen is a definite plus point; no ventilation in the two toilets is a significant downside.

Best part of this property is the hospitality and generosity of the hosts, who treated us to home-produced wine, apple juice, fruit and vegetables, and made us feel completely welcome..

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my daughter and her husband, and my 2 grandsons (aged 5 and 2) spent a week here in July/August. We found the property and gardens to be spacious, well equipped, safe and clean. Dealing with Francoise via phone and email was always a pleasure. meeting her and her family, an absolute delight! The local produce left for us was a lovely surprise and we so enjoyed the apple juice pressed from her very own fruit!

The village of Glandieu is a picture postcard with the most beautiful waterfall literally just across the road, 50 metres away. We hired a car, which is a necessity, and visited lots of lakes, vinyards, and places of interest and beauty, all within a 40 minute drive.

All in all we had the most wonderful holiday and would love to return in the future.

Endroit superbe et gîte très confortable

  • 5 of 5

Le gîte est très calme, moderne et bien équipé. Le jardin est grand et vraiment appréciable lorsqu'il fait beau ! Tout est parfait. Les alentours sont superbes, le village très sympathique ainsi que la cascade de Glandieu. Françoise, qui est très arrangeante, nous a réservé un accueil très chaleureux.

Je recommande vivement !

superbe semaine !!!

  • 5 of 5

nous avons eu le plaisir de passer une semaine de vacances en famille chez Françoise et son mari. nous avons pu apprécier le confort de leur gite ainsi que du jardin. les enfants ont pu jouer en sécurité. L’accueil a été chaleureux et très agréable, francoise a fait partager sa passion pour les chevaux à ma fille de 6 ans qui a passé de très bons moments. le village est très sympa et proches de plusieurs sites à visiter ainsi que d'un parc d'attractions. à quelques pas du gîtes vous avez la belle cascade de Glandieu et si vous ne savez pas ou vous restaurer n’hésitez pas le resto d'en face, vous ne le regretterez pas !!! passez également voir la fille de la propriétaire qui tiens le magasin dans le village et qui vends ses productions de jus de pomme, cidre, et pleins d'autres choses :)...

bref une semaine de repos bien agréable, a refaire sans hésiter...
