“A fantastic place”
Reviewed September 2, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

I stayed at Le Petit Nid with my friends Simon & Sharon this summer. What an amazing place.....when you first arrive the gite looks quite small but don't be deceived, it's like the tardis!

There are bedrooms on the first & lower floors & a lovely open plan lounge & kitchen/dining area in the middle. Off the lower floor is a really handy little annexe where we kept our bikes & where you access the garden with its pretty stream.

We chose Le Petit Nid because of its setting, ideally placed for some of the iconic cycling climbs of the Tour de France. But it offers lots of other things: a nearby swimming lake, short drives to towns like Chambery, a little further to Annecy, stunning views of mountains & beautiful nearby villages.

The owner Sarah is a great hostess & superb cook!!! Definitely a must if you can!

“Perfect cyclist location for some major Tour climbs.”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Group of 7 cyclists booked in for a week. Took advantage of Sara's dine in offer at E20 pn each and were defeated most evenings. The excellent menu provided something new each evening and all of an excellent standard. Sarah and Sebastian were the perfect hosts. From the house we climbed Galibier, Telegraphe, Croix de Fer,Col de Glandon, Alp d'Huez and many other minor cols. Would not hesitate to recommend and already planning a return.

“fantastic hospitality, food and location”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have recently come back from a wonderful week of conquering a lot of the legendary Tour-de-France cycling Cols and Passes. We booked this place due to its proximity to many of the climbs including the Telegraphe, Galibier, Glandon and Alp d'Huez. The house is lovely with space to comfortably accommodate 8 people (we had 7). Waking up to the backdrop of the huge Alpine mountains was absolutely breathtaking. Sarah and Sebastien the proprietors really looked after us with friendly conversation and offering us at a cost the option of a Cordon bleu 3 course meal every night. Which after a hard day's cycling really hit the spot. Would definitely recommend and would stay again :-)

“Great location, great hospitality”
Reviewed June 12, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We picked this house because of the already very positive reviews & it's location for the big climbs associated with Le Tour de France. We were not disappointed & received great hospitality from owner Sarah. We took advantage of her meal service each night which hit the mark every time with high quality 3 course condo bleu meals. Recommended? You bet!

“The perfect mountain cottage hideaway”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Had the pleasure of spending a week at 'Le Petit Nid' and I can wholeheartedly recommend the experience to anyone. The cottage is tardis-like in its ability to provide comfortable space, and the experience of sitting next to the little stream at the rear of the cottage, in the evening, with the mountain vista, is one you will remember. The rooms are well furnished and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. The kitchen is fully supplied, and the living area provides a welcome escape from the sun when needed.

The location half way up the side of the valley provides fantastic views every day and the drive and views on the way up to the Col de la Madeleine have to be seen to be believed.

We sampled Sarah's excellent culinary skills twice during our week, and I wish we had done so more often. She is an outstanding chef and both she and Sebastien excellent hosts.

We will be returning to 'Le Petit Nid' next year for a longer stay, and personally, I can't wait.
