About our home

We offer a comfortable and spacious restored house in a quiet place, between Grenoble and Lyon. We have 5 bedrooms, a lovely living and dining room with fireplace, a large garden, very nice neighbours... It's a really quiet place, with a wonderful view on the mountains. Our house is perfect for children (toys, bikes, swing...), as we have 3 of our own. We have a cat who lives outside.
Nous vous proposons une maison ancienne mais restaurée, désormais confortable et spacieuse, dans un coin tranquille à mi-chemin entre Grenoble et Lyon. La maison compte 5 chambres, un salon avec un poêle de masse, un grand jardin non clos, elle est environnée de voisins sympathiques... avec vue sur les montagnes du massif de la Chartreuse, face à nous ! Nous aimons beaucoup cet endroit calme et trouvons qu'il est idéal pour les enfants (notre chemin est une voie sans issue, la maison regorge de jouets, vélos, raquettes, il y a un portique...). Nous avons un chat qui vit dehors.


Yann's reviews (1)

More about us

  1. We are Cecile and Yann and we have 3 children : Lucien (2001), Suzanne (2004) and Capucine (2006). Yann teaches literature and Cecile is editor. We are fond of books, cinema and all sports. We made more than 15 successful swaps since 2007 (Amsterdam x3, London, Switzerland, Roma, Ireland, Belgium, France x4). We love to discover new places (nature but also beautiful cities), during 1, 2 or 3 weeks. It's also a great pleasure to meet new people, by mail, phone or in the real live, around a good bottle of wine!
    La première fois que nous avons échangé, avec une famille hollandaise, nous avons été tellement séduits par la formule et le pays que nous ne voulions plus rentrer !! Nous avons aussi échangé avec des familles françaises (Pyrénées, Bretagne, Normandie, Paris) et sommes ouverts à tout échange en France : nous savons que les étrangers aiment beaucoup notre région montagneuse, mais nous sommes sûrs qu'elle peut aussi séduire nos compatriotes ! Nous proposons un endroit idéal pour se balader en montagne (que ce soit à vélo ou à pied), découvrir de belles villes comme Grenoble, Lyon, Vienne, Romans, Chambéry, ou des espaces naturels préservés et finalement peu connus comme la Chartreuse, le Vercors et le Trièves, déguster toutes nos spécialités régionales… Le tout dans une maison chaleureuse et un environnement très "nature".

Where is it?


Our little town, called 'Saint-Aupre', in the Parc naturel regional de Chartreuse (preserved environment), offers easy access to middle and high mountains activities (walk, mountain biking, climbing, paragliding...) and many sports activities (tennis at 3 km, swimming pool at 8 km, a lot of beautiful roads for bikes, mountain bikes or runners, beginning in front of our house). There is also lakes and spectacular caves in the area.
At 10 min. by car, you will find the town of Voiron (20.000 people), with all the commodities : stores, big cinema, swimming pool, restaurants, museums… (our favorite lake, 25 min away) : a new ecological swimming pooll, 10 min from home

About cultural possibilities, there are many festivals (theater, music, cinema) in Grenoble, at 30 km, where you'll also enjoy shopping and restaurants.
The famous Avignon theater festival or Geneva's lake are at 2 hours, and Mediterranean Sea at 3 hours by car. You can also take reach Paris for a WE (only 3 hours by train).
