Fantastic place and lovely hosts. Well worth taking evening meals here too as Anita is a very, very good cook. Jean-Louis also makes a top quality Génépi that damn near knocked me out cold after a hard days cycling. Highly recommended.

This little B&B is tucked away down an alley off the main road leading into Le Bourg d'Oisans (and the start of the l'Alpe d'Huez climb). It is very quiet, and Anita and JL are the perfect, gracious hosts. Anita prepares a fantastic breakfast spread, which allows you to load up before a day's cycling. The rooms are fairly spartan,...

Excellent location on a flat road, good for warming up the legs prior to the climbs. Comfortable rooms and excellent food. A warm welcome and helpful nature of the owners made this an enjoyable trip particularly after a hard day in the saddle.

Room was spacious and clean, facilities for bikes and to sit outside. Evening meal well worth trying and great value. Home grown produce, 3 courses and wine all for 25 euros. It's in a quiet location but ideally based for cycling alpe d'huez and many other climbs

We'd definitely stay here again for the location and the warm hosts. Jean-Louis and Anita welcomed us on arrival and took great care of us the whole time. The breakfasts included everything you'd want -- breads, cereals, yogurt, jam, juice, great coffee, etc. We had dinner there twice, and both meals were very good, eating with the owners and one...

We are satisfied about our stay some weeks ago. Friendly owners and no problem to answer specific wishes. We could stay some hours longer then foreseen. The dinner was also very good and it was nice to talk with the owners about the region,... Very quiet environment. A little negative point is the mattress : could be better.

“I think all the rooms are the same -- there are four, lined up side-by-side. #4 on the end might have small side windows the others lack”
  • That's my room behind the bike. Note all the windows, with views of the grounds and mountains.

“We definitely recommend choosing to join the owners and other guests for dinner. The dinners we had were far better quality and value than anything we had in town. The food was plentiful and delicious. Anita made sure that I had plenty to eat, even when I told her that I don't eat meat”
