Penny and Mitch look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful home in the National Park of Chartreuse.

Our typical mountain chalet is surrounded by farm land, views of the mountain range on all sides and very peaceful. The area is an artist and photographer's paradise and for bird lovers a haven of rare bird species, visible from your bedroom window. Our home is the perfect detox from city life and ideal for anyone seeking an alpine vacation.

The space
The holiday home is a private three bedroom apartment with lounge and dining area, private shower room and modern fully fitted kitchen.
The apartment is spacious and bright and airy, facing south. There is plenty of room to make 6 guests comfortable (71m2)

We have tried to make your stay comfortable by providing some DVDs, books and board games for days when you are not out exploring the countryside.

There is a private terrace perfect for Al fresco dining on sunny evenings where you can relax and take in the views of the mountain and pine tree filled forest.

Guest access
Your hosts live on the first floor of the chalet and are retired so will be available when needed but respect guests privacy and appreciate your understanding of our personal space.
Some of the outdoor garden is private to the host and this area will be marked private.

Other things to note
We have a strict no smoking rule, due to the location of our home. The area is surrounded by woodland.

We also have a strict house rule limiting the maximum number of guests on the property at any time to 6 and no unregistered guests.

We have fitted a combination lock key store for any instance of guests arriving later than expected for entry to the apartment.

Entre-Deux-Guiers, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, France

The house is ideal for guests who love the peace and quiet of the outdoors.
There are many hikers footpaths and mountainous cols to explore. Plenty of cycle routes for a pleasant two hour ride to a more extreme hill climb.
The area is known for being a home to marmottes, golden eagles, several varieties of owls and wild boars.
Situated 25 minutes from Chambery and Grenoble. 15 minutes from the closest family ski station, St Pierre de Chartreuse. For skiers there are good downhill slopes that are available for all levels of ability, nordic skiing areas, raquette walking paths and tours and plenty of mulled wine stops along the way.

During the summer visit the natural river bathing lido which is 20 minutes walk from the house or drive to Lac Aiguebelette where you can enjoy kayaking, or paddleboarding on this unspoiled thermal lake. For the more extreme outdoor enthusiasts there is paragliding over the lake and mountains or canyoning and via ferrata in the nearby gorges.

I love travel and welcoming people to my home in the stunning Chartreuse National Park. I speak a number of foreign languages and enjoy meeting new people. I enjoy lots of outdoor sports particularly skiing and canyoning. I am a good cook who experiments with flavours and cuisine from other countries.
