Devo dire che il sig. Arnold oltre ad essere una persona simpatica e disponibile è una persona attenta ai particolari ed alla cura della casa. L'arredamento infatti è curato nei minimi particolari e con soluzioni originali e talvolta simpatiche. La cucina è attrezzata di tutto e con qualità, le camere belle e confortevoli, una super doccia, un salottino delizioso. Una vista bellissima sulla valle, un giardino festoso e colorato. Moltissime le località da visitare sia nei dintorni che con più o meno brevi spostamenti con la macchina. Il paese di Saint Jacques des Blats è carino ma privo di qualsiasi negozio utile per una spesa adeguata ma a pochi chilometri ci sono alcuni centri con supermercati ,farmacie etc. Noi eravamo in 6 di cui 2 bambini, ci siamo trovati benissimo e ringraziamo Arnold, sua moglie ed il loro cagnetto Forester per la splendida settimana nella loro casa vacanza.

Super gîte avec une vue imprenable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons été accueillis par un propriétaire très chaleureux, soucieux de notre bien être.

C'est un gîte vraiment sympa et très bien équipé, très propre, les lits sont faits à notre arrivée avec serviettes de toilette pour tous, une literie impeccable. Tout cela dans un cadre de verdure paradisiaque très calme qui donne envie d'y retourner.

Séjour familial agréable

  • 4 of 5

Séjour familial très agréable, accueil des plus chaleureux, dans un joli cadre. Gîte très bien équipé, prévue pour la famille (jeux pour tous les ages, dvd, cd, livres, télé, chaine hifi) très pratique lorsque l'on a des difficultés à sortir (enfant malade sur le séjour pour ma part). Literie de qualité et confortable, équipement complet (jusqu'au sèche cheveux et appareil à raclette par exemple).

Le seul hic de devoir absolument prendre son véhicule pour se rendre à la navette qui nous mène à la station, prévoir les chaines en cas de neige.

Bref, très bon souvenir de ce gîte spatieux où nous retournerons très volontier!!!
