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

We've not stayed in a B&B before so didn't know what to expect. No worries though - this place run by Jean-Pierre is fab. Lovely en-suite room with posh accessories and really good bed - best night's sleep in France. Bed sheets looked brand new too. Breakfast excellent - everything you'd expect and more - fresh cherries, home made preserves,... More

We loved this B&B. Our room was very well decorated, with lovely view and high speed internet. Jean Pierre was a good host and his breakfast came with homemade jams and good bread, served in a homely setting. We also took dinner cooked by Jean Pierre in a friendly atmosphere. The location is good for hiking and lots of information... More

We have now spent four nights here. The hotel fits in perfectly with its rustic surroundings but is full of modern comforts. The entire hotel is spotlessly clean and the furnishings have been tastefully selected with an eye to detail. The garden in well laid out and in late spring was full of colours. The views over the mountains are... More

This is an outstanding B&B, one of the best I have stayed in, in a beautiful location. It has been purpose designed and built and it shows. Another reviewer refers to attention to detail and I must agree. We were two couples travelling together. Our rooms were spacious, airy and very attractive. Both led out onto the balcony. The bathrooms... More
