We chose Le Verger Fleuri as our chalet for a week of bicycle riding after reviewing many possibilities, and also hotels. Our expectations were high, and these were exceeded!
First of all, the location is perfect for a combination of walking to the old walled city, stores, and restaurants... and also riding your bike. We could reach 5 of the classic climbs of Cols in this region leaving directly from the house, rather than using a car. This is awesome.
The views from the kitchen, livingroom and deck are amazing. You are in the city, yet you can reach out and touch the mountains. The light throughout the chalet is excellent, warm and the ventilation from the windows made it very pleasant despite some warm days. It is decorated sparingly, tastefully, and feels both cozy and spacious. We had a total of 8 (4 individuals and 2 couples) and we all enjoyed our beds and privacy, while cooking together. Speaking of cooking... the table on the deck, and the table in the dining room each seat 10. The kitchen is very well-equipped, several of us love to cook and we had everything we needed.
Alessandro is an excellent host, eager to help with advice and recommendations. His restaurant recommendations were accurate (and delicious) and he even tipped us off to where he buys local meat, which we proceeded to grill (with the provided charcoal grill).
Everything was very clean, and as we had questions or problems, a text to Alessandro got an immediate response. We will stay here again, and would highly recommend it!
