About Les Gites de Sarah et Claude
I am English and Claude French. We have four children, a dog, cats and two ponies. We arrived in the Bugey in 2004 and have been renovating the forge du Perou ever since! After a very successful season with "the gite de la Forge"(https://www.ownersdirect.co.uk/gd/dash/661.6518378.3833690) we had the oportunitiy to buy the Old school house (we fell in love with the house and it's position) We feel this area is very special, we have travelled widely and we are always pleased to get back to the Bugey. We want to share this undiscovered beautiful part of France that the French and Swiss neighbours have been keeping for themselves.
Les Gites de Sarah et Claude purchased this House in 2016

Beautiful location, super house, private pool.
A super house with loads of space and games for young families inside the house and outside. We had a great welcome from Sarah and some lovely local produce in the kitchen for our arrival. There were a few beetle type insects in the bedroom the first night, but once we removed them no others appeared. The pool was brilliant, about 20 degrees (early October!) and not overlooked ... only by the Grand Columbier! Ideal and beautiful location for any cyclist wanting to ride one of the Tours regular routes. The views from the top were just magical ... breathtaking ... out of this world. The garden is not secure, it's open to a neighbours vegetable patch and another neighbours small vineyard.
The advert 'facilities' lists not only things at the house eg swimming pool, but also things you can do in the area eg sauna, massage, kayak etc.
The figs from the tree in the garden were ripe delicious.
A quiet walk (1.5 miles) down a quiet track, steep in part, gets you into the village of Artemare with a boulangerie, Carrefour Contact, butcher and restaurants (we can recommend Le Seran for a lovely meal).
Sarah and Claude were perfect and responded promptly to our enquiries. Without question, we would stay there again.
Thank you very much for your kind review and for the jam !
You left the house beautifully clean and tidy .
Merci beaucoup hope to see you again.

Amazing location, stunning views and lovely hosts!
Where do I start!... The views...wow! Nestled in a small sleepy village at the base of Le Grand Columbier and surrounded by vineyards with clear views of the mountains and stunning sunrises, what more could we ask for?!
We were a family of three adults and four children ranging from 5yrs - 15yrs. They were never bored! The pool is fantastic, clean and refreshing after a day lazing in the sun on the comfy loungers - lots of fun had by all. The pool table and ping-pong were great hits with the kids and adults alike too.
Beautiful villages to explore nearby, especially Chanaz. An early morning swim in the Lac de Virieu was a little piece of heaven, even more so as we had the whole lake to ourselves! It's definitely worth the drive up Le Grand Columbier for the spectacular views of the Alps and the Rhone Valley. A day trip to Geneva is only an hour away on the train - the old town is worth a visit.
Sarah and Claude are genuinely lovely hosts and couldn't be more helpful, even waiting for us to arrive at a ridiculous hour - I think it was after 1am! They arranged to come with us for a wine tasting evening at the neighbours, Claude Collomb, so they could translate for us. The wine is very nice, a little more special knowing it's made from the grapes surrounding the gite!
There is so much more I could write about this wonderful little corner of rural France but you'll just have to visit to see it for yourselves!
Thanks Sarah & Claude, hopefully we will be back to visit again soon!

Fantastic stay, Amazing location!
The property was lovely and had so much available for children to do. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you very much !
Wonderful stay at gite de l’ecole. Nothing like school!
Breathtaking surroundings of vines, mountains and trees around this lovely gite with its elegant proportions. Comfortable beds, tasteful furniture and artwork and plenty of hot water to shower in after lounging around the pool. Great to have a pool which has good depth and easy access steps for both children (aged 10 and 11) and adults to enjoy. Loved the swifts or swallows sweeping down to take a drink! Kitchen is a good size, although we ate al fresco most of the time. Fantastic to eat some of the garden veg and herbs, whilst sipping the wine (produced by Claude Collomb) grown from grapes surrounding the gite. Pool table provided lots of entertainment, with the odd game of table tennis. Sarah and Claude are charming hosts who kindly booked a superb table for us at a lovely restaurant. All round excellent accommodation and a wonderful time had in this beautiful place.
Thank you Michael !!! Looking forward to see you again.
