Welcome to our home

Set in the beautiful Jura mountain range and right in the heart of the French Lake District, from the patio of the house you can see mile after mile of rolling, tree-covered hills and cows grazing the rich grass to produce the milk used to make exquisite Comté cheese.

Built from reclaimed stone from a 200 year-old farm, the house is somewhere you can truly relax. We have blended the rustic and the modern for a homely, authentic ambience. Choose from 4 comfortable bedrooms, each with its own en suite shower room. The bedrooms are cool in summer, warm in winter, so you can look forward to a restful sleep whatever time of year you visit.

Situated in a quiet village, the lakes and waterfalls are just a few miles away. Hiking routes leave right from the doorstep.

We welcome groups, couples and families with children of all ages. Dog lovers are welcome too − we have our own friendly pug dog, Cappuccino, who is the house mascot.
