About Bee Tschirret
Beatrice and Philippe, great outdoor sports fans. Globe-trotters, multi-lingual (english, german, spanish, chinese and french). Beatrice is a massage specialist and used to be a top athlete and Philippe (engineer) knows (almost) every single trail and ski slope in the area, on top of great places for picking raspberries and mushrooms. Both love to meet people and share their tips and tricks for the greatest places to go around here. Beatrice offers a massage with each booking (if she's not traveling in China) and Philippe loves to share a good bottle of wine.
Bee Tschirret purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2012
Why Bee Tschirret chose Saint-Martin-d'Uriage
Sharing this wonderful place, this enchanted castle. A place where, once you've closed the heavy wooden door behind you, you feel like taking a deep breath. Beauty is surrounding you. Outside, inside, up and down. Eternal view, the terrace of honnors and... the place where you're going to stay and have a rest. A ressourcing place. Close to everything you want and where everything you want to leave outside remains far away though.

Apartment grade-A. Beatrice and husband Philippe gracious. Magnificent building and views.
My family, the Allmans, like to believe that the Allemans who started building the chateau in the 11th century were our ancestors. Thus, we were delighted to learn that "the Allman Castle" (as we call it) has been converted to condominiums and that one was available to rent. My sister, her husband, my wife and I came from two different parts of the USA and stayed in the chateau for two days. The edifice and the view looking over Uriage were magnificent as expected, and we were again delighted to find that Beatrice and her husband Philippe have decorated their apartment beautifully and made it comfortable in ways our ancesters could never have imagined. Beatrice and Philippe were most gracious. I had corresponded with her and, since she was away at a meeting, he cordially greeted us and even set up a table and chairs on the terrace so that we could sit or eat while enjoying the view of the entire valley. Uriage, by the way, is also a quaint and colorful place. I/we strongly recommend staying at Bea's apartment if you have reason to travel to Uriage.
