“A perfect spot for relaxing, walking and cycling.”

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.

“Idyllic Nest & Amazing Chef!”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

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!

“A delightful French experience”
Reviewed 12 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

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.
