This wonderfully converted old farmhouse retains plenty of character whilst enjoying all the mod cons including an american style kitchen, tv, french satellite television, a dvd player, a large collection of Dvds, laundry facilities, a lounge with a dining area and a downstairs wet-room. There are three bedrooms - bedroom one has an en-suit shower/wc with two single beds, which can be converted into a superking on request, and a third single bed on the beautifully crafted wooden mezzanine level above. Bedroom two has three singles, one of which is raised and another is on a mezzanine, and shares a spacious shower room with bedroom three which has two singles (can be converted into a superking if desired).
The gite also enjoys a terrace for private use, a bbq and outdoor seating. There is private parking and a secure cave for skiis and bikes.
The gite is part of a larger property, the rest of which has also been converted into a gite - The Haybarn (1935425) sleeping 10 - and can be joined internally and rented as one unit sleeping 18 - listed here as Gite Du Vallon (1888276).
The gites are situated on the edge of a peaceful hamlet on the outskirts of the Ecrins National Park and enjoy spectacular scenery, a calming ambience and the opportunity to get close to nature.
Bed linen and Towels can be provided at a rate of 7.50 Euros per person per stay (payable cash on arrival).
The hamlet of Chantelouve itself is tranquil and calm, set on the edge of the Ecrin National Park, the scenery is spectacular throughout the year. There are plenty of walks to be taken just by exiting the front door. For cyclists there are VTT trails running through the village and surrounding area and Boug D'Oisans, Les Deux Alpes & Alp D'Heuz are between 20 and 45 mins away (by car). Skiers and snowboarders can also enjoy the mega resorts of Les Deux Alpes & Alp D'Heuz in the winter plus our local and reasonably priced ski resort of Col D'Ornon, which is a couple of minuets away by car. In the summer there are many local lakes offering sailing, fishing, swimming etc, most with restaurants overlooking the water and fab local food.
There is no public transport in Chantelouve, to enjoy the area you really need a vehicle and snowchains or tyres are a must in the winter.
