Located in 2 acres of land within the Vercours National Park, with stunning mountain views, idyllic location, close to the village and restaurants. The Chalet has a 4 star rating from the French tourist board. Ideal for couples, families and anyone who enjoys the great outdoors. Walking, skiing, cycling, water sports, horse riding, fishing and lots more. Spring, Summer, Winter & Autumn there is always plenty to see and do. The nearest restaurant (our favourite) is only a 5 minute walk away.
All the rooms are well heated with electric radiators and of course the wood burning fire in the lounge. The house is fully approved by the French tourist board and has a 4 star rating.
Bed linen, towels, electricity, Wi Fi and wood for the fire are all included. There is a telephone for emergency use only.
Very well equipped open plan kitchen (see photos) with cooker, hob, grill, microwave, coffee machine, slow cooker, electric mixer, fridge/freezer and enough plates, glasses, assorted serving bowls etc to open a restaurant..! Generally, everything that you would ever need if you want to take advantage of the local produce and cook.
The dining table on the mezzanine floor seats 8 (although we have squeezed 9 in) In the summer though, the conservatory with it's large sliding doors, is the place to eat.
The lounge area has leather settees and a fantastic log burning fire for the winter. Wi Fi French/English Freesat TV. Flat screen TV with a very effective surround sound system for both the TV and music. DVD, CD and MP3 player, telephone. There is a selection of DVD films, an extensive CD music collection and a bookcase full of holiday reads.
The main living area is on the first floor which can be accessed either externally via steps (see photos) or internally from the 3rd bedroom also via some steps. Given the mezzanine floor and steps, we would suggest that the accommodation is not really baby or toddler friendly. Although having said that, we have had several guests and young children who have managed just fine.
Sleeps 8 (3 Bedrooms)
Notes on bedrooms:
Bedroom 1, King size double bed.
Bedroom 2, 2 single beds and a captain's bed sleeps 1/2.
The captain's bed in bedroom 2 is a double mattress and will sleep 1 or 2 depending on size/age e.g. we have had 2 smaller 12 year olds or an adult and a child share, but not at the same time! If you need any advice on suitability, just ask. This is a good sized room and there is plenty of space for an additional inflatable bed on the floor if needed (can be supplied).
Bedroom 3, double bed and en suite bathroom.
En suite bathroom to bedroom 3 with wc, large shower cubicle and basin.
Large main bathroom with wc, separate shower cubicle, basin and a proper full size "soaking/relaxing" bath.
Washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board, vacuum cleaner.
Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service
Bed linen and towels are included. The house is very easy to keep clean, however, a cleaning service is available by arrangement.
The conservatory is great in the Spring, Summer and Autumn as the doors all slide open to allow uninterrupted views of the surrounding scenery and provide access to a cooling breeze. It gets a bit chilly in the winter, but doubles up as a really useful storage area for ski's and snowboards etc.
Underneath the lounge is a separate games room with a table tennis table, tennis and badminton rackets, boule, an archery set and a selection of games and toys.
If you want to fly and drive, Lyon or Grenoble airports are the nearest. We favour Lyon as there are more flights and choice of car hire companies. From Lyon (St Expury) it really is a very easy drive to Lus la Croix Haute and will take under 2 hours. We drive most of the time as the dog comes with us. The route from Calais to Lus is also very easy, with motorways all the way except for the last 40 minutes as you climb into the southern alpes. We allow 8.5 - 9.0 hours including breaks.
The village is a 2 mins drive or 10/15 mins walk from the house. There is a general store, butcher, bakery, 2 hotels/restaurants/bars, bank (only open on certain days) post office and local produce store. Generally you can get all you need in the village. however, there are 2 good supermarkets in Veynes which is a 20 minute drive. The nearest large town is Gap which is just under an hours drive from Lus as is Grenoble and Sisteron which is also worth a visit.
Guests have access to all areas of the chalet.
