One bedroom has a king size futon mattress on a tatami platform. It's quite firm. The other bedroom has 2 single beds (a trundle bed in fact). The upstairs bathroom has a large bath tub suitable for two. Downstairs off the living room, there is a bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom. The kitchen is modern with a glass top halogen stove top and a microwave oven. Plates, glasses, cutlery, cooking utensils, pots and pans are provided, everything you should need. There is a drip coffee maker and an Italian style stove-top espresso maker as well. On the terrace, there is a table and chairs and parasol should you wish to eat outdoors. We always used to love eating out doors whenever we could. The house is suitable for children, however with very young children, we do not have child barriers on the stairs. Well behaved pets are acceptable. There is a television and UK Satellite (FreeSat).

Location description from owner

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region

The house is located in The Chartreuse mountains just north of Grenoble. It's part of an area called Quaix-en-Chartreuse. Several of the nearby towns have an x at the end and nobody really seems to know why. I have seen some of the older maps and this area is called simply Quay. Incidentally, Quaix is pronounced like Kay.

Grenoble

The area that the house is in is fantastic for hiking in the warm months and skiing in the winter months. If you are a cross country skier (or ski rando skier), it is possible to ski directly from the house when there's enough snow. There are a couple smallish ski stations quite close to the house say less than half hour drive. Across the valley on the other side of Grenoble you have Chamrousse and Les 7 Laux which are pretty decent stations (I prefer Les 7 Laux myself). Within a couple hours drive you have some of the best skiing in the French Alps. Equally, in the warm months, if you get bored walking the trails around the area the house is in, you have some of the best mountain hiking trails of the Alps within your reach for the day. The one thing we never were was bored!

Don't let the location scare you, it's only about a 15min (10km) drive from the house to the centre of Grenoble!

“Fantastic Winter Break”

Reviewed 30 Jan 2015

A comfortable stay for 6 adults, we spend 3 nights. We enjoyed lovely walks and drives round the countryside by day and great evenings round the awesome wood burner.
