A great wee find!

  • 4 of 5

Mme Brossy, the owner, was lovely and very welcoming. The chalet was ideal for us as a couple as we slept on the mezzanine level and had the ground floor as our living space. It was an excellent base for touring the area by foot and car. Breakfast on the balcony was a treat as it has spectacular mountain views and enjoys the morning sunshine.

We enjoyed meals at various local restaurants but especially enjoyed our meals at Le Chalet in Le Grave and L'Estable in Chantemerle as well as the pizzas at the Gite Pas de L'Ane in the village which also had free WiFi.

We will recommend the chalet to our friends. We had a great two weeks!

Cycle and Walking Base

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is located in a peaceful part of the valley and provides a very good base for cycling or walking. I used the Chalet as the base for a road cycling holiday; I could ride directly from the village or drive to Briancon or Bourg d'Oisson and start from there, in this respect the chalet was ideally located.

The chalet was simply but well equiped with an area for storing bikes, walking gear or skis. There are two sleeping areas and the chalet was warm despite there being a frost on a couple of the early mornings.

Mme Brossy was very welcomming and it was a pleasure to stay here.

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Malgré l'eau froide à partir de 13h dans la journée, nous avons largement apprécié notre séjour dans ce chalet où le voisinage est très serviable et où la propriétaire l'est tout autant (merci pour les bugnes de fin de séjour).

La petite station du Chazelet à 15min en voiture est suffisante pour celles et ceux qui veulent partir pour skier mais aussi pour faire autre chose (balades en raquettes ou à pieds, ski de fond, luge, patinoire).

Bref, séjour reposant et ressourçant, loin du monde des grandes stations.

Owner's Response: Qu'écrire sinon un très grand merci pour votre appréciation. Quant à l'eau froide, désolée car il suffit de m'en parler, voire m'en reparler ; je suis là pour régler tous les problèmes qui se présentent. De mon côté, j'ai eu plaisir à faire votre connaissance, personnes aimables et positives.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Mon fils et moi, nous sommes restés 5 jours dans le chalet.

Le chalet est parfait pour 2 personnes. Les photos correspondent à la réalité.

On a eu une vacance vraiment superbe avec des moment inoubliables. On a beaucoup apprecié la chalereuse hospitalité de madame Brossy. Elle nous a donné des bonnes suggestions pour des promenades fantastiques! On revient certainement et on recommande le chalet à tout le monde!
