Forget your suitcase - bring your entire household effects and move in here! It is absolutely wonderful, a really unique and special place. A delightful old farmhouse very tastefully renovated, with tons of atmosphere and all mod cons. Genial host, lovely food, a breakfast to end all breakfasts (including fresh bread baked by the host!!!), and spectacular surroundings. I couldn't... More

I spent a night with my family at this excellent bed and breakfast last week. I booked quite late and Jean-Pierre was very efficient with all the email exchanges. The location is easy to find if you use the lat / long coordinates on the website. The rooms very comfortable and quiet, dinner was excellent. It was clear on the... More

The lodging is amazingly beautiful and the attachment of owner to details very impressive. The owner was also away under pouring rain yet he learnt from the previous review and helped us get in even if he was away. Breakfast taken in common around the large wooden table was delicious with a very extensive range of products including surprising home... More

Once we put the coordinates provided on their website into our GPS, and stopped looking at the screen and saw the signs, we had no trouble finding Le ValOmbre. Beautiful B and B, quiet, comfortable and an outstanding breakfast. Because the owner was in charge of the major festival in St. Pierre de Chartrreuse, he was offering dinner but we... More

A few miles away from the village, peace and quiet are guaranteed here. Host Jean Pierre is on hand with a warm welcome and prepares a most wonderful breakfast as well as making an excellent dinner too if needed (at 20 euros). Up to 10 guests sit at his long dining table encouraging companionship and conversation. Bedrooms are separated from... More

We stayed one night and were pleasantly surprised by this accommodation. The room is very nice and big and the bathroom is very modern and you have everything you need in it. The breakfast is very good as well, you can choose from different things and part is home made :)

We stayed at this quaint b&b during a stop over through our trip of France, the owner was very friendly and the b&b very functional, the rooms were clean and despite being quite small were perfect for our short stay. The dinner set up was good, the food incredible and very good value. I would recommend this place to anyone... More

We had not visited the Chartreuse before but Le ValOmbre was easy to find and we were given a good welcome by Jean Pierre. Our room was comfortable and well equipped. The place was peaceful and the other guests were very friendly. Conversation ensued in multiple languages. There was comfortable furniture in the lounge and in the garden. We made... More
