An amazing traditional building, and Jean-Pierre is a great host. If you are looking for en-suite, sterile, modern comfort this is not for you. This is an original Airbnb experience - a stay with a local. If you appreciate something more quirky, a warm welcome and atmosphere then don't hesitateDecember 2021

please be more careful with your guests...
Positive: The village is a nice place to rest before of after your climb in the Ecrins national reservation, we came here after 4 nights spent in the Adele Planchard refuge. The house in right next to the central square of the village. Negative: Jean Pierre is a nice host but he forgot that we were arriving from the Adele Planchard refuge (we called him the night before going to his place from the refuge) and made us waiting for 2 hours in from of the house... We were quite tired after the 5 days spent in the reservation. The map locator from the application is not correct. The room and the bathroom had lots of hair allover the place, it was not vacuumed for some time.December 2021
