A wonderful house in a beautiful spot with absolutely stunning views. We holidayed for a week as a large-ish family group and had a fabulous stay. The house was very clean and the kitchen had absolutely everything you would want from your kitchen at home (including an extra fridge for beer!).
The house is spacious and open plan with plenty of room for everyone to enjoy their stay. Would highly recommend to people with young kids as it was pretty much all on the same floor (including the bedrooms). The large open plan kitchen/dining/living space was excellent for little people with any stairs gated or doored so it felt extremely safe and relaxing. There were good quality wooden cots (with very clean mattresses) that could be put in any of the bedrooms as needed and all the bedrooms were spacious and ensuite. There were also highchairs available as needed. We made use of the washing machine and washing line - also very useful with small kids! The room we were in was perfect for a young family as it had a double bed, single bed and room for a cot if needed. It also had a bath in the ensuite.
The small village is in easy walking distance, where there were 3 or 4 lovely places to eat as well as swimming pool, which had a kiddie pool as well.
There is plenty of space outside for kids to play safely and the terrace with the beautiful views was a great place to spend afternoons and evenings. There was even a BBQ to use. It really felt like the owners had thought of everything! Cannot recommend highly enough.
Lus Le Cheylard is our ideal location for a fantastic Family holiday plenty of space
wonderful views, it is has Alan Dell describes the Villa. Very well equipped with
everything one could possible need, what we are very impressed with, every
bedroom has got an on-suite plus a separate toilet in the Hallway. We have been renting from Alan Dell for the past 7 years and we now look upon Le Cheylard as our second home.
There are many fantastic walks adjacent to the Villa, Lus is a short walk away and the people are very friendly, the Ski resort is some 6 K's away and is very
We go at Christmas so that we can celebrate Christmas in the snow, but sadly this year we had little snow, but lovely frosts at night down to minus 10 C's
but fantastic sunshine during the day one could sunbath, the Villa has got a most wonderful wood burning stove which heats the Villa up wonderfully, copious amounts of wood supplied.
The Villa is always very clean, even our Great Grand Son of 4 years, simply adores Le Cheylard, we are in the process of teaching him to ski. We have already booked the Villa for next Christmas.
There are numerous up market ski resorts 1 to 2 hours distance away. Finally I have found Alan Dell to be the most honourable Gentleman that I have ever
done business with.
The property was even better than the description and photographs show. Very spacious and spotless. The kitchen was very well equipped with a vast array of cooking equipment and serving dishes. A large range cooker, microwave and fridge/ freezer made self catering easy. There is well stocked mini supermarket, excellent butcher and two bakeries within walking distance and a large
supermarket a 20 min. drive away. Excellent laundry room. Spacious bedrooms and excellent en suites.
The booking was dealt with very efficiently, a good guide to the property provided and the security deposit returned quickly.
Both Alan and the local English couple who look after the house were very helpful and supportive during our stay during a medical emergency.
We would recommend a car to visit the magnificent gorges and countryside in the area but the local train station is within walking distance and there are many marked walks from the house.
Highly recommended. For us it was a perfect place to stay and we hope to return soon.
