About the property

Uniquely designed home with stunning panoramic view, the gite du Grand Colombier is situated in a prime location on the Grand Colombier with mountains and valley views. The Landscaped south facing garden leads you down to the pool and a shady garden area great for children; This house breaths holidays happiness !!!

Our third gîte is ideally situated for people who appreciate nature, outside activities (walking, road cycling, VTT, water-sports, Fly fishing, horse riding...), and Wine tasting (There are about 10 others within a 5 mile radius).

From the gite, you will enjoy walking for miles on the scenic foot paths of the grand colombier (if you make it to the top, you will be rewarded by one of the most spectacular views in France). If you are a keen cyclist, you can take up the challenge ok the famous "Tour de France 4 headed monster" or just enjoy the Viarhôna which is great for families.

Ideal for families with children of all ages and pet friendly, the gite is equipped with trampoline, table tennis, American billard table, private south facing swimming pool (8X4 meters) garden and games.

About Le Gîte de la forge

I am (Sarah) 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"( 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. In 2018 we bought the Gite du Grand Colombier, a more contemporary house. Open plan with a ground floor ensuite bedroom and a stunning terrasse with unique view, we felt that we would enjoy a holiday in this house !!!
