About this listing
The « 39 » is a confortable and quiet loft (600 sq ft) first floor of a typical 19th century building. The Championnet neighbourhood offers plenty of restaurants, food shops, craftshops and art galleries. It is the "Greenwich village" of Grenoble !
Business or touristic trip, the 39 Lesdiguieres in Grenoble town center welcomes you in the spirit of conviviality of his neighborhood : music, books and computer connected to the web are free. A phone is available so you can be called at local fee. In this apartment of 600 sq ft designed as a loft, the space is open and simply structured by two volumes nicely drawn : the bathroom block with a sink and a shower and the mezzanine covering the bookshelf on lounge side and desk on bedroom side. Bedding : 1 double bed in the bedroom.
No restriction. Everything you can find in the loft is for your confort and pleasure !
Interaction with Guests
I never come in the flat when guests are using it, unless I'm called for a drink !
The "Village" is the other name of the Championnet square where the flat is located, from walking distance of historical town center. And it is actually the "Greenwich village" of Grenoble : all around you will find small shops with quality food, nice pubs and restaurants, craftshops and art galleries. Don't forget to look at the good places guide on the map tab. You may even be granted by the "creators fair" or a funny carboot sale.
Just around the corner, the Caserne de Bonne will offer you a brand new commercial center and some quiet places for a walk or a drink in the sun.
You'll be able to access all public transports by bus and tramway with a few minutes walk, and you can rent a "metrovelo" bike from the city (20€ per month) or a Cité Lib car from 15 € per month + 0,35 € per km. The main train and coach station is a 15-minute walk away from the flat.
I love my flat, and I love my neighbors too. So I expect any guest to be careful about both.
Cominciamo con l' host: Jacques è una persona straordinaria, ospitale, generoso e molto disponibile. Il nostro soggiorno è cominciato benissimo con una splendida accoglienza alla stazione e la presentazione, da parte di Jacques, della casa e del quartiere. L'appartamento gode di una fantastica posizione: si trova a due passi dal centro storico, in un quartiere molto ben servito dai mezzi pubblici, con tanti negozi, ristoranti, e giardini nei dintorni. La casa è molto carina, confortevole e disegnata con creatività e gusto. Perfetta per le necessità della mia famiglia. Raccomando a tutti l'esperienza eccellente presso "le 39".
The house was great for two of us, both students at Grenoble Ecole de Management, for 4 months. It was in the perfect location, very near train station and town centre. The apartment was well equipped with many clean sheets and Jacques also kindly came down several times to fix the problems that arose during our stay. He was a wonderful host who even helped us to bring our heavy luggage from the train station when we arrived and sent us to the train station when we left.
L'appartement est magnifique. Je le recommande chaudement à toute personne qui viendrait à Grenoble. Jacques s'est par ailleurs montré très accueillant à mon arrivée et tout au long de mon séjour. Vous ne serez pas déçu!
Jacques was a fantastic host and the "39" apartment was the perfect base camp for my experience at Grenoble Ecole de Management. I would be happy to return any day if the chance came up again. I am sad to leave!
Jacques kindly met us at the station and helped with our luggage. He also had chilled wine and nibbles waiting at the apartment so we couldn't have asked for a better start. The apartment is exactly as listed and we loved the open plan design, windows at both sides meant a nice breeze kept the apartment cool. As we stayed for five weeks we had quite a few meals at the apartment and the kitchen had everything we needed. The apartment was quiet at night and combined with the very comfortable bed we slept well. We would highly recommend Jacques apartment, which is within easy walking distance of the city centre and Jacques is a perfect host, leaving us to enjoy our stay but always available by email or phone. If we ever return to Grenoble we would certainly stay again, Thank you Jacques.

Jacques' apartment is great find in Grenoble. It is well-designed, spacious and very accommodating to guests - lots of space for clothes, bright, comfortable and very well located in the city. We were happy with the open concept of the space - perfect for a couple. Jacques was a great host - meeting us at the train station, orienting us to the neighbourhood and available online during our stay. We certainly would stay there again and recommend it without hesitation.
About the Host, Jacques
I"m now sharing time between my workshop in Chartreuse, the "Atelier des Cloitres", and "le 39" in Grenoble where I've been living more than ten years. I enjoy the quiet animation of the Championnet quarter after the silence of the mountain. Cabinet maker one day, web designer the other, I like to come back to my flat for a meeting in town. I don't think dishwasher and television are necessary but I consider a glass of good wine and a good hi-fi system as ordinary pleasures. I wish to welcome foreign visitors who will like "le 39".
