“A delightful French experience”

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.

“Wish we could stay longer”
Reviewed 23 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

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.

“Paradise in the Alps!”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

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!
