  • Description


    Looking for space and beauty? We are a couple who have recently bought a house in the French Alps. It is a very beautiful area with lots of opportunities for outdoor activities. The house is comfortable and spacious. We have an older relative living with us and we regularly have friends and family visiting.
    We are 3 km away from a busy French market town so although it is quiet and rural in our little place there are lots of other activities going on in the area. We are very near to Chamonix/st Gervais/Megeve with all the winter sports they offer as well as the Aravis mountain range behind us. If you like to; hike/cycle/climb/ski/paraglide/run- this may be the place for you. We have a workshop space as well so there is opportunities for quieter and more creative work as well.
    We are looking for positive people to come and enjoy the area as well as offering us help with the house and garden. We can offer help with learning/practising English ( we are learning French ourselves so happy to have help with that) and there is good WI-FI.
