Sarah was an amazing hostess for our alpine wedding. From the bottle of fizzy in the fridge as we arrived, to the superb home made canapés, quiche, BBQ and desserts - we couldn't have asked for anything more. Le petit Nid itself was perfect for our wedding reception and our beginning as Mr and Mrs- it felt so relaxing listening to the stream running by as we enjoyed the view of the snow topped mountains in Spring! Our room was comfortable and clean - we loved the beams, rustic finish and romantic feel to the old mill. The bridesmaids and I enjoyed the privacy of the ensuite bathrooms as we got ready. We will return for our anniversary! Many thanks Sarah!

Everyone has heard the expression/idea that, " You can never go back", meaning that once you have visited a place and gained fond memories you should not go back for fear of ruining those memories with a lesser experience. Well, with the Watermill House, you can throw out that idea, because here each visit will just get better as you discover more of the details which make this property such a special, unique and delightful experience. Without going into the general observations I made in my first review in June of 2014 regarding the spacious and comfortable nature of this 4 bedroom, 3 bath chateau located conveniently close to charming villages and smack in the middle of the glorious French Alps, I would like to point out some of the smaller details which set this apart from and above similar vacation rentals in the area, or for that matter, the world. The first detail is sound. No traffic or road noise. No barking dogs. No crying babies. No arguing neighbors. Instead, when you step into the house you find the space filled with the delightfully soothing sound of the burbling trout stream which flows by meters from the windows. That sound defines the essence of living in The Watermill House-- a calm, soothing , restful, rural experience. Right along with that comes the fantastic views from the large opening windows which provide 360 degree views of the surrounding country and the spectacular mountains. The large bookcase is filled with many English language books, and there is a complete " Renters Manual" with all the details about the house systems. No need to go to the Tourist Office, the local guidebooks and maps are right here. The kitchen is full of every imaginably needed accessory and tool, and, wonder of wonders, the knives are all very sharp! When is the last time you found that in a vacation rental-- never, I'll wager. There is a clever system which automatically opens the under-sink trash bin lid when you open the door, eliminating the need to reach down and open the lid. Wonderful. Everything-- every latch, switch, door, appliance, etc., works properly. Attention to detail and maintenance are obviously a priority with the owner. Very important. The wood heater, like everything else, works and wood is furnished. The barbecue area down next to the stream, in its own stone structure, is great. Most importantly, the owner, Sarah. is a trained and experienced cordon blue chef who furnishes unbelievably delicious and diverse meals at a very reasonable price. Do not miss the opportunity to sample her cuisine. I could go on and on, but you get the message--- this place is very special.

It is with great pleasure that I write a review for this wonderful holiday nest, where I got to experience THE BEST MEAL I HAVE EVER HAD! After reading all the amazing reviews, my husband and I decided to stay at Le Petit Nid for 5 nights in March 2015 (with dog and baby in tow), and it did not disappoint in the slightest. The setting is warm, peaceful, and idyllic, providing the perfect get-away-from-it-all experience. Sarah is also such a gracious host, and her cooking is absolutely not to be missed! And it is a pleasure to see all the small details that have gone not only into her mill, but also into her delicious cooking. As a first-time mother travelling with a baby that was sick for the first time (stressful!), knowing that we would be experiencing Sarah's thoughtfully planned, heart-warming meals at the end of the day was something that always lifted our spirits; it was like having family taking care of us! Having previously worked on customer strategy for the one of the largest Tour Operators in both Switzerland and France, I must say that Le Petit Nid exemplifies the traveller experience. C'est magnifique!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at le petit nid. The gite was very clean and comfortable and after a long days skiing provided a "home from home" atmosphere. Sarah and Seb were friendly and very accommodating hosts. We enjoyed an exceptional meal cooked for us by Sarah and Seb kept our glasses topped up throughout the evening. We would definitely recommend one of Sarah's meals as it was truly delicious and their company was second to none. We wish you both every success in the future, you are lovely people and deserve it. We hope to be back.

We stayed for one week at the end of July, and we were delighted with all aspects of the property. The owner, Sarah, was a most helpful, welcoming and friendly host, and she clearly takes great pride in her property. The house was spotlessly clean, very well-equipped, and in a very quiet location. It was spacious and comfortable, and a lot bigger than it looked in the photos. The garden was a lovely place in which to sit-out and enjoy the peace and quiet, and the views of the Alps from just up the road in the little village were stunning. Sarah is also an excellent chef, and we took the opportunity to have a lovely evening meal, with many of the ingredients supplied from her own garden. A most enjoyable and memorable evening! The main reason we chose to stay there was for the cycling, and in terms of location, it doesn't get much better than this. The house is virtually on the col de Cucheron, and it's a 10 minute drive (or easy ride) to La Chambre, where the col de Madeleine and col de Glandon start. The col de Chaussy and Lacets are also there, and another 10 minutes gets you to the Croix de Fer and Toussuire. The Telegraph and Galibier are not much further. There was secured storage for the bikes, and it really was a perfect spot. People often write in visitor books that 'they will be back', but in this case, it's true, and we have already booked a fortnight's stay next year. It was a very easy decision to make.

This is a lovely gite. Clean, comfortable and cosy. It has a well resourced kitchen, including really sharp knives! Sarah proved to be an excellent host. Friendly and very welcoming, helpful when needed, but otherwise unobtrusive. We sampled Sarah's cuisine on two evenings. A truly excellent experience, by far the best food we ate anywhere during our entire stay. We would recommend Le Petit Nid without reservation!

All the reviews we had read were not an exaggeration. The burbling brook , afternoon teas on the sunny patio, forested mountains for energetic hikes, picturesque country lanes for more leisurely walks and Sarah Gill' s delicious Cordon Bleu dinners all contributed to a perfect week . Le Petit Nid was much larger than the images had suggested and beautifully furnished and equipped. Thank you to Sarah and Sebastion for our lovely sojourn .

Le Petit Nid is a delightful place to spend a week, even in autumn. The house is cosy, well equipped, clean. The wood stove is a bonus on a november evening, and in case you need a book to read in the sofa next to the stove, the book chest is overflowing with good reads. Sarah was ready to help with all our questions, and yes, we enjoyed a wonderful meal at her house! There are lots of walks in the area, and you often see Mont Blanc towering in the distance. The villages and hamlets are quite authentic, ski tourism has not spoiled this valley. It is but a short drive to the bakery, the butcher, the supermarket. Nothing but good marks for Le Petit Nid!

As you can see from other reviews, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this little nest. Not so little though, and lovingly restored for visitor's comfort. And with a kitchen that I really enjoyed cooking in, a husband relaxing in comfort watching the rugby world cup, and a dog doing a continual hop, skip and jump when walking the area, we realised that this was a very special place to stay. Walk up the road and just stand enjoying the view of the valley below, or follow the road along to see a lovely old church. There is a little supermarket near by and drives through some lovely mountain passes. Plenty of reading material if you forget your book with comfy sofas, ( one each) to have a good read. Sarah will cook a delicious supper and Sebastian will courteously serve. If you have a dog and enjoy his company and loyalty, take him here. You will have nothing, absolutely nothing to worry about. How lovely it was to come home to wild mushrooms on the doorstep left by Sarah for us to eat for breakfast. I remember it was a breakfast to remember and smile about even now!!! We wish them well, they deserve every compliment.

We had a wonderful week here in the late autumn. The weather and the scenery were superb. We walked every day without ever having to leave the valley. The cottage was delightful and comfortable. We enjoyed the wood-burning stove, foraging for walnuts and exploring this peaceful and beautiful region. Sarah was welcoming and gave us lots of useful information. She had even found out about Halloween activities in the area for our kids.

Loads to do, we enjoyed a lovely but strenuous walk up to the Lac Noir, canoeing , cycling and just lazing around at the swimming lake. We could easily have spent more time here and the meals at Sarah's house were just gorgeous. The accommodation worked perfectly for two families of four and we'd definitely recommend a stay.

Had the pleasure of spending a week at 'Le Petit Nid' and I can wholeheartedly recommend the experience to anyone. The cottage is tardis-like in its ability to provide comfortable space, and the experience of sitting next to the little stream at the rear of the cottage, in the evening, with the mountain vista, is one you will remember. The rooms are well furnished and the bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. The kitchen is fully supplied, and the living area provides a welcome escape from the sun when needed. The location half way up the side of the valley provides fantastic views every day and the drive and views on the way up to the Col de la Madeleine have to be seen to be believed. We sampled Sarah's excellent culinary skills twice during our week, and I wish we had done so more often. She is an outstanding chef and both she and Sebastien excellent hosts. We will be returning to 'Le Petit Nid' next year for a longer stay, and personally, I can't wait.

We picked this house because of the already very positive reviews & it's location for the big climbs associated with Le Tour de France. We were not disappointed & received great hospitality from owner Sarah. We took advantage of her meal service each night which hit the mark every time with high quality 3 course condo bleu meals. Recommended? You bet!

Group of 7 cyclists booked in for a week. Took advantage of Sara's dine in offer at E20 pn each and were defeated most evenings. The excellent menu provided something new each evening and all of an excellent standard. Sarah and Sebastian were the perfect hosts. From the house we climbed Galibier, Telegraphe, Croix de Fer,Col de Glandon, Alp d'Huez and many other minor cols. Would not hesitate to recommend and already planning a return.

We have recently come back from a wonderful week of conquering a lot of the legendary Tour-de-France cycling Cols and Passes. We booked this place due to its proximity to many of the climbs including the Telegraphe, Galibier, Glandon and Alp d'Huez. The house is lovely with space to comfortably accommodate 8 people (we had 7). Waking up to the backdrop of the huge Alpine mountains was absolutely breathtaking. Sarah and Sebastien the proprietors really looked after us with friendly conversation and offering us at a cost the option of a Cordon bleu 3 course meal every night. Which after a hard day's cycling really hit the spot. Would definitely recommend and would stay again :-)

I stayed at Le Petit Nid with my friends Simon & Sharon this summer. What an amazing place.....when you first arrive the gite looks quite small but don't be deceived, it's like the tardis! There are bedrooms on the first & lower floors & a lovely open plan lounge & kitchen/dining area in the middle. Off the lower floor is a really handy little annexe where we kept our bikes & where you access the garden with its pretty stream. We chose Le Petit Nid because of its setting, ideally placed for some of the iconic cycling climbs of the Tour de France. But it offers lots of other things: a nearby swimming lake, short drives to towns like Chambery, a little further to Annecy, stunning views of mountains & beautiful nearby villages. The owner Sarah is a great hostess & superb cook!!! Definitely a must if you can!

Our second visit to 'Le Petit Nid', and for good reason. Beautiful accommodation which is more spacious than than on first appearance, and so comfortable, clean and well-equipped with everything you would need for a relaxing, peaceful break. Sarah is an excellent host and a tremendous cook, and we had 2 delicious evening meals during our stay. It is in a perfect spot for cycling, walking and relaxing, and there is a lovely swimming lake about 5 minutes away. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked another two weeks next year.

Nothing was a problem to Sarah, who along with partner Seb were good humoured and always a laugh. Give Sarah's meal deal a go, great value and great food.

Had a fantastic stay here last week. The gite is perfect, beautiful and spotlessly clean. Hosts were great fun, Sarah cooked a fabulous meal and we retired to sleep in beautiful surroundings. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in (apart from my own of course). With the log burner in the living room and plenty of books to get stuck into I really didn't want to leave... can't wait to come back

Le nom du gite "le petit nid" lui va à merveille. Il est très propre, bien agencé et très bien décoré. Nous avons passé un long week-end très sympathique avec Sarah et Sébastien qui ont véritablement un grand sens de l'accueil. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié la cuisine de Sarah et nos longues discussions et avons refait le monde avec Sarah et Sébastien. La prochaine fois, nous espérons que nous dinerons même ensemble. Une magnifique région qui mérite vraiment le détour et Sébastien nous a bien aidé pour explorer la région. Nous attendons de le faire découvrir à nos amis et nous y retournerons avec grand plaisir

We stayed at Le Petit Nid for our family summer holiday in August. Its a beautiful Chalet in a really peaceful location. The views are gorgeous. My children really enjoyed playing in the little stream in the garden and we enjoyed hours by the lake nearby (about a 5 min drive) Sarah the owner was really lovely and so helpful (both in the booking process and during our stay answering all my questions and helping me plan days out) The area is a cyclists dream - my husband enjoyed cycling lots of the tour de france cols. Also lots of beautiful walks. If you love your food Sarah also is an amazing chef who can cook you delicious meals if you arrange in advance. The chalet is really spacious and big enough for 8 people.

If you are looking for a great place to stay in the France Alps, the Maurienne Valley to be precise, then I would whole heartedly recommend, “The Petit Nid”. Everything was ideal. The location is very private, the house extremely comfortable, well equipped and spacious: perfect for a couple, large group or family. The hostess is a superb trained chef who will provide dinner and breakfast on request although the ‘Nid’s ‘ cosy French style kitchen is a delight to cook your own meals in. The best things about this Gite are the special touches Sarah does to make the stay extra special. Beautiful soaps, quality linen, fresh flowers in the house and an enchanting garden with a creek bubbling through it. All this is capped off by the view of charming countryside and surrounding snow capped peaks of the Alps. Thank you Sarah, I certainly will return.

This is the second year that we have stayed the night as a stopover en route to our skiing holiday in La Plagne. Both times it has struck me how I wish we could stay longer! (with two small children ski-to-door is much easier for us at the moment). Sarah is always welcoming and the food is very good and much appreciated after a day eating at motorway service stations. The accommodation is excellent too (spacious and comfortable). I have nothing to say by way of criticism. I very much hope that one day we will stay for more than a night as Le Petit Nid certainly deserves to be a holiday destination in its own right.

We recently stayed at Le Petit Nid for a week - well it was meant to be 5 days but we loved it so much we extended for an extra 2! Our experience was wonderful - where to start - the house is well equipped, comfortable and spacious. We were a couple but could see us going back with friends easily as the house could accommodate 8 comfortably. Sarah is a fantastic host. She has the balance between being available if you need her but not imposing and the icing on the cake - she is an amazing cordon bleu chef. Sarah does everything she can to make your stay enjoyable. Highly recommend and just trying to work out dates for when we can return!

We were only able to stay one night as on a road trip - but would happily go back again and again. It would be the perfect base to explore this beautiful area from. You can go out the door and just walk. Sarah provided an excellent meal in the evening (with wine) - and again a lovely breakfast. The accommodation was extremley comfortable and well thought out to provide everything you might need either for a one night stay - or if you were going to be there for a week. The company was excellent - with just the right amount of being friendly without being overly so

Le Petit Nid is a VERY special place to stay. I came here with my husband and 7 month old baby for a 10 day holiday and we came home feeling as though we had been away for much longer. Such a stylish place in the most stunning mountain location. Ticks across the board... Great beds, bathrooms, linen, kitchen equipment, books... all the things you hope for and more! Stunning walks, with the local lake just at the bottom of the mountain. Luckily for us we arranged for Sarah to cook for us one night. Her food is made with so much care, passion and quality ingredients, we really were blown away. Sarah trained in Paris at Le Cordon Bleu and it really shows in her cooking. Sarah lives next door and is so discrete, but so welcoming if you need anything at all... She is a lovely person, and we would go back just to see her!

We stayed for two weeks at Le Petit Nid. The chalet was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. It is spacious yet homely, with a good selection of books to fill any spare time. The owner, Sarah Gill, is particularly helpful with local recommendations of places to visit and restaurants at which to eat. We particularly liked the recommendation in Italy! A graduate of the Cordon Bleu school in Paris, Sarah offers to cook meals at a very reasonable price. We thoroughly recommend that guests take her up on this. The food is truly excellent and great value, served in relaxed surroundings. We love our food, yet cannot remember eating dishes as tasty. Wifi is included and this was particularly useful with the family.

Working with Sarah to arrange the rental was a delight! Prompt responses to emails, helpful suggestions and very professional in all exchanges. Highly recommended. Unfortunately the trip had to be cancelled and we never got to see the place. The cancellation had nothing to do with the owner nor the place; personal reasons kept me away from the area. With that said, organizing this stay was by far the best experience I've had so far. Stress free, no surprises!

After traveling through Europe for 5 weeks I can honestly say that our 4nights here were the best! This little nest was fantastic. We were a group of 6 Australians, keen to cycle the famous cols around the Alpine area. The house was very well appointed,very comfortable and clean, and we were looked after so well by Sarah and Sebastian,we feel I like we were part of the family! From the moment we were greeted by Sebastian out the front until our fond farewell 4 days later, every moment spent here was amazing. We chose this place based on previous reviews and certainly we weren't disappointed. It's the only place we stayed in that the pictures in the online advertising matched so closely to what was actually there. The meals that Sarah prepared for us were the best we had during our trip, and the evening spent drinking her home brews around the fire was a real highlight! Sarah, we can't thank you and Sebastian enough for your help organizing the bike hire, printing our emails, and giving us so much advice on the area. We hope to return one day! If you plan on staying in the Savoie area, don't go past Le Petit Nid, you won't be disappointed.

Nice cozy place with very charming owners. We stayed only one night on our way to southern France but wished we could have stayed longer. Sarah prepared us excellent three course dinner including wine at 20 euros - we told her she could double the price and we would still book again next time when we come to the area. Cost value ratio with accommodation, food and service was excellent.

If it is peace and tranquility you are seeking in beautiful surroundings, with great hospitality, the Petit Nid is the place for you. As you wake to the sound of the stream in the garden trickling, it would be tempting to stay and relax in the garden with a glass of wine, but you will also be tempted to go and explore the beautiful mountain scenery which surrounds the Petit Nid. Sarah, your host has carefully restored this little gem with attention and care to make your stay comfortable in every way. She herself is the perfect host with the added qualification of being a cordon bleu cook, a skill she happily shares. If desired she will prepare you delicious three course meals for you in her home next door..................we can't wait to return.

Have you ever dreamed of staying in an ancient stone house in a beautiful valley surrounded by snow capped mountains, with a lively trout stream bubbling by outside the windows? Would you like to stay in a secluded and private chateau which is a convenient distance from all the attractions of the French Alps? Do you appreciate renting from an owner who takes great pride in their property and the outstanding service they provide their guests? If the answer to any of these questions is " yes", would love staying at Sarah Gill's "Le Petit Nid". But I must point out, though it is a wonderful "nid" ( nest in French), it is far from "petit" ( small in French). It is a full sized 4 bedrooms and 3 baths, with large kitchen, dining area and salon, and complemented by a covered outside BBQ area , a large extra storage room and ample parking. Its location is superb in the heart of the Maurienne Valley and close to several quaint villages from which all the necessities of life can be obtained. And there is a beautiful swimming lake with clear clean water a heartbeat away. The house is tastefully furnished with comfortable furniture and art. It comes complete with every amenity you could need, and if you should desire anything more, just mention it to Sarah, who lives next door and and she will fulfil your every request. Also, She is en excellent professionally trained chef, so do not miss the opportunity to partake of one of her delicious dinners. Simply stated, this holiday property is a real gem. Do not miss it. You will not be disapointed.

What a perfect way to spend an Easter break away from Geneva! Having been living expat lives in Geneva for 2 months now, it was such a wonderful treat to escape to the cosy, peaceful dwelling of Le Petit Nid. Armed with board games a plenty, books and food we settled in for a few days. Needless to say, not much book was read as there was too much to explore nearby. We even gave snow shoeing a try from Oreille. So fantastically easy to reach the 3 valleys too. As for Sarah's home cooked meal - definitely worth experiencing. Very reasonable too...

Le Petit Nid is just that, "a little nest", but not so little!, it was perfect: after driving all day, to arrive at this little haven, beautiful snow clad mountain backdrops, stretch our legs, walking amongst beautiful scenery, and come back to a lovely warm and tastefully decorated home with wood-burner blaring away, hot shower or bath and then go and have a beautiful gourmet dinner at the hosts house next door up the lane. We are "foodies" and were overwhelmed by the delicious food that Sarah and Sabastien offered and the hospitality that went with it. I personally ate the best dessert I have ever eaten (simply a trio of apples, but obviously not that simple) and the rest of the courses were a taste sensation, so hat's off to Sarah the chef. We had copious amounts of wine followed by a sampling of Sarah's apparently infamous homemade liqueurs, using local ingredients - our favourite was the green walnut red wine brandy which was superb and equally delighted, I now have the recipe from her, to use on my own walnut tree's. I will be passing by at least 4 times a year and will definitely not look for anything else - beautiful, thank you Sarah, you are great! On another note, the lovely cottage is so close to all the well known ski resorts in the area, forget the high prices and après ski of the resorts, I would much prefer travelling back to this 'little nest' and enjoying the après ski chez Sarah at a fraction of the cost and a lot more peaceful.

We are glad to have found this "Petit Nid" to enjoy five days in the alps.Vacations at its best with the extremely quiet neighborhood and excitement close by,(ski stations and beautiful landscapes not too far. The owner Sarah is an excellent cook and always upbeat.We had a wonderful time at their dinner table where they serve you local and wild products. I definitely hope to be able to go again.

We stayed at Le Petit Nid for one night on our way to a skiing holiday as a way of breaking up the journey for our two small children. It was a perfect stopover and we will certainly think about returning. The accommodation was of a very high standard, spotlessly clean and Sarah was very accommodating and welcoming. We also had a delicious supper with wine - just what was needed after a day in the car!

Wonderful hosts, such a beautiful chalet. We went for the catered option and it was like dining at a fancy restaurant every night! Highlights included wild boar stew and apple pannacotta. Sarah even made iles flottantes upon special request and they were great. We had such fun, and the house itself was so warm and comfortable with a fab wood burner in the sitting room. Plus it has really good showers! Would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Sarah & Sebastien! - Kate

Walking into Le Petit Nid at 1am in the morning, after a long day travelling from Scotland to the warm welcome of the cosy woodburner, a beautiful converted watermill and homemade delicious mince pies( made by Sarah a Cordon Blue cook!), we knew we had found somewhere special for our home for our family New Year Ski trip ...however when we opened the gorgeous French shutters of the windows and heard the sound of the 'Alpine burn' we realised it was something more than special! What a peaceful haven to rest and relax in after a day on the slopes. We were staying here with good friends and Le Petit Nid proved a spacious, modern yet charming conversion of the old mill retaining the original beams and has a beautiful hand carved modern oak staircase without losing any of its old character. The warm welcome from Sarah, a mix of Scottish and French enthusiasm the next morning, made us truly feel at home. We recommend an early morning trip to the local patisserie in Épierre for fresh grande batons, croissants and pain aux chocs (apparently the best outside Paris!). A great way to start the day for carving the slopes! One of our favourite memories of our French New Year ski trip was driving home, after a day of fun, falls and frivolity on the alps, to Le Petit Nid! Thank you so much Sarah for your warm kindness and gorgeous, cosy home ... we hope to return sooner rather than later!

Our weekend in "le petit nid" was amazing. Sarah greeted us with a warm fire and a bright smile as she showed us around her gorgeous restored watermill. Warm, cozy, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and the bubbling stream that flows through the backyard, this mountain retreat was perfect for our family. Each room had its own charm, with 2 en-suite bedrooms on the first floor and 2 large rooms in the former attic. My husband and I stayed in the top room which was huge, with exposed beams and a great view of the mountains. The library was stocked with a great selection of books in English for snowy (or rainy, which unfortunately was the case for us) days. Decent-sized villages are within a 10-minute drive for anything you might need. Although we only got to stay for 2 nights, I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to travel as a couple, with friends, or with children. It could easily accommodate up to 8 people. Definitely hope to come back! Thanks Sarah!

We have just returned from a fantastic week staying at Le Petit Nid. The views are stunning, it was so lovely to wake up to the peace and tranquillity of the French alps. The house is very well equipped and spacious. Sarah the owner lives next door and is on hand to help with any problems. Thank you.

My second visit back to Le Petit Nid after being so well looked last year by Sarah, the Scottish host, who met and resolved all my needs and queries with a smile. Set on the lower alpine slopes, with stunning views of the surrounding mountain, the gite accommodation is a converted mill-house which has been fitted out to a high standard. As an avid hill walker Le Petit Nid was a perfect base to explore the many walking routes and amazing scenery close by. It would also be an ideal base for skiing being a short drive away from the 3 valleys. Sarah provided some amazing meals on request (Cordon Bleu trained!). Thoroughly recommended a stay here for individuals, couples, groups or families. I will be back. It does not disappoint!

We have just spent a lovely week at Le Petit Nid which is tucked away in a small village in the Maurienne Valley. Sarah the owner is a wonderful hostess and is on hand if you need any help or advice. Sarah provides breakfasts and cooks delicious three course evening meals when you require them. She uses excellent quality local food and charges very economical prices. Don't miss out on Sarah's special breakfast which is a lovely treat. The property itself is of a very high standard it is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. It is in a very scenic spot surrounded by mountains with a stream running past the property. Whilst we were there the nights were starting to get colder and we returned each night to find the wood burning stove crackling away. We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the cosy atmosphere which was really relaxing. There is a lot to explore in the surrounding area it is within easy reach of albertville, Annecy and the rest of the Maurienne Valley and its famous mountains. We can highly recommend Le Petit Nid for a relaxing getaway in the French alps.

Let's cut to the chase: stay here! A beautiful gite in lovely countryside in the middle of the Savoie. When we arrived, the log fire was burning which was an immediate 'warm welcome' from the word go. The gite is spotlessly clean, very spacious and has a great wifi connection (which is definitely not found everywhere in rural France). The kitchen was very well-equipped, and there were even fresh herbs from the garden in a vase for us to use in our cooking. It was those sort of caring touches that made this an exceptional experience for us. (The nearest supermarket is a 10-15 minute drive in aiguebelle for buying groceries). Sarah has a well-stocked bookcase (mostly English books), so if the weather isn't great you will have no problems curling up on the comfortable couches and getting your head into a good book. We loved it here so much that instead of staying here for just nights we extended it to 3. We were very lucky to be able to do that. We also learned from Sarah that she will also do evening meals - a good reason to return because I am sure that the same thoughtfulness and good taste that characterises how she runs her gite will also extend to that too.

We had a wonderful stay at Le Petit Nid. We couldn't believe how spacious the chalet was on arrival, spotlessly clean and the interior had been designed and built to a really high standard. The kitchen was well equipped, the sitting room shelves laden with books and games to entertain us and the pretty garden a lovely spot to sit and relax. The kids enjoyed swimming in the lake just a few minutes away and we all enjoyed local walks. Sarah could not have been more helpful and considerate. I would have no hesitation in recommending this chalet to others, I'm sure we'll be back.

This was a very comfortable, convenient and well looked after chalet. We stayed as a group of 6 but it could easily accommodate 8. There is plenty of space to accommodate 8. This is a perfect location for a cycling holiday exploring the famous tdf cols. There is also a swimming lake nearby. Sarah (the owner and host) is helpful.

We stayed here for a week of cycling in the alps and it was perfect - the kitchen is very well equipped which allowed us to cater for ourselves easily.

Lovey property in the Maurienne Valley. Very well furnished with good size kitchen and living area. Perfect location for a summer cycling holiday. Stayed at Petit Nid with a group of friends. We are all keen cyclists and found the location of Petit Nid perfect for excursions to all the big cols of the famous Maurienne Valley. The Tour de France visits this valley every year. Glandon, Croix du Fer, Mollard, Alpe d'Huez, Madeleine, Champlaurent and Grand Cucheron are all within cycling distance and with a fairly short drive you can access Galibier, Izoard and Iseran. Sarah kindly offered us secure lockable storage for our bikes and the washing machine in the property allowed us to clean all our dirty clothes. There is a town with supermarkets within a 10 min drive and a full range of cooking facilities in the nicely finished kitchen. There is a lovely lake 5 mins bike ride away which has a bar, beach and good swimming. There is also a stream/river running next to le Petit Nid which was ideal for post ride cooling down. Overall our plans were to cycle the big cols and see the Tour de France, Le Petit Nid was the perfect base for this and a great week was had by us all.

We were very lucky to find this absolute gem of a property. The photographs hardly do it justice. lt has been converted from an old watermill with an outstanding standard of craftsmanship, from the parquet flooring throughout to the handbuilt staircase and beamed ceilings. There are stunning views of the snow capped mountains and a pretty little stream babbling through the garden, all adding up to a romantic and peaceful atmosphere. Most afternoons, we sat outside on the sun terrace under the wisteria, listening to the stream and drinking a glass (or two!) of ice cold white wine for "l'apero". lt was absolutely perfect. There is a gorgeous 'beach' down at the lake about 5 mins drive down from the cottage too. lt costs 2 euros each for entry between noon and 5pm, so remember to take change if you are arriving between those times. lt is a lovely spot for a swim, surrounded by dramatic mountain scenery. The water was much warmer than we expected, thankfully! There is a restaurant there too, serving snacks and drinks during the day. We didn't see the evening menu, but the chef apparently has a Michelin star at his winter restaurant in Meribel, so it could be worth checking out. The nearest cash machine is in aiguebelle which also has two handy supermarchés for stocking up on wine and cheese and other essentials (although we seemed to cope with mostly just the wine and cheese...!). The kitchen is incredibly well kitted out if you do fancy cooking though. We even spotted fondue and raclette kits which we plan to make good use of if we make it back in the winter for some skiing! We only stayed for four nights, which passed far too quickly. We'll definitely be back for longer next time. Thank you Sarah for a perfect break in your gorgeous Petit Nid. Ps. Special mention for the ridiculously comfy beds - proper mattresses and luxurious linens. Best sleep l have had in ages!!

A stunning property in breathtaking scenery! The house has everything you need to feel at home, beautifully decorated with quality furnishings. Lovely open plan kitchen and lounge with reception area, the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and light. The garden is lovely with a bubbling stream at the bottom - perfect for a BBQ. Sarah goes above and beyond to help with anything you may need - an a+ host!
