Amazing Christmas stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent our Christmas at this property and it was one of our best Christmas break we had. This house have a lovely character and located in a quiet location surrounded by the forest and mountains.

Property is close to a Chambery city where is lots to do(places to visit and nice charming restaurants to eat) and it's only 30 min drive to a ski resort, which is nice for a families with a small children.

Over all I would like to say big Thank you for Jim and his wife for helping us through our stay, even know that it was a Christmas.

Definitely will come back and highly recommended for others.

Location très intéressante

  • 5 of 5

J'ai apprécié l'accueil (un feu de cheminée nous attendait à notre arrivée) et l'intérieur de la maison. L'endroit est très calme et de belles vues (lac et Alpes) s'offrent à vous sur la route y menant (si il n'y a pas de brouillard). Je recommande.

Très agréable séjour

  • 4 of 5

Les propriétaires nous ont très bien accueillis et se sont montrés attentifs à répondre au mieux à nos différentes demandes. La maison, propre et très ancienne, située dans un petit hameau d'une dizaine de maisons, a été rénovée avec goût, sans chichis et en conservant toute son authenticité (avec également son poêle à bois, lequel était mis à disposition à volonté). La maison n'est pas très grande mais fonctionnelle. Quelques points faibles, mais qui ne nous ont pas vraiment dérangés: la cuisinière est fort petite, le four également (petit combiné micro-ondes et four traditionnel), le nombre de couverts est très limité et les WC se trouvent dans la salle de bains. Cela demande donc un peu de discipline et d'organisation pour accueillir 5 personnes. Nous voulons aussi souligner combien les alentours du Lac du Bourget sont beaux. C'est un gîte que nous recommanderons volontiers à nos amis.
