That is my own flat. I don’t rent it for money but because I’d like to share the sweet & friendly way of life of my place!

The Space

**** AVAILABLE AUGUST OR SHORT STAYS ****
August : only for a week or more.
The flat can be rented for short stay and/or a week-end.
In all cases, please send me an e-mail to check the availabilities.

***THE AREA***
The flat is located in the heart of the medieval area of Albertville (called Cité de Conflans).
Rent it for a French typical “village” experience!
The area (email hidden)y local people can drive on the square & around during the summer.
The neighbourhood is very friendly and you can eat typical dishes in Claire’s Restaurant, Le Conflarain, or (email hidden) after a hike or a ski day at Celine & Christophe’s pub, Le Barrock.
All of them (4 restaurants, 1 pub and many small artists studios) are on the same square as my flat.
This place is at 8 minutes walk from the center of Albertville (in fact 5mn to go down but 8 mn to come up!)…
In Albertville center you’ll find 2 lovely food markets (on Thursday & Saturday morning) where you can buy fresh and local goods, some very good bakeries, 2 cinemas, 1 theatre, a lot of restaurants and some shopping streets.
Train station is at 20mn walking to the flat.
That is better if you have a car to reach every activities around but that is not absolutely necessary –you can find every conveniences by walk in less 20mn-.

Guest Access

***THE APARTMENT***
The most important for me is you feel like in your home. You can read the magazines & books on the shelves, listen to your own music on the hi-fi system (Iphone compatible), connect internet with my private fast Wi-Fi, spread your personal effects and use the fully equipped kitchen as you want.
Tv on the picture presently doesn't work.
Otherwise there is one very quiet bedroom for a couple and a couch in the living-room with twin mattress for 1 or 2 other people. I recommend this apartment for 2 persons or 3 but it’s possible to stay 4 (except if you want hot water for 4 consecutive showers!).
I supply clean towels & sheets (a full pack per week and per person).
There is a bathroom with a large shower and toilets are separate.
I have no private garden but there are plenty of beautiful public gardens around and it’s really easy to have a picnic in quiet places outside with table & seats (I’ve some secret places -like private places- I can share!)

***ACTIVITIES***
Albertville and the neighborhoods are famous for cycling (you’ll find some famous Tour de France’s summits around!) but you can also do a lot of activities during your holidays…
Hike the mountains directly from my place, visit farms and discover how the locals do cheese (I have plenty of great address to buy local food to let you!), reach the biggest ski resorts of the French Alps in less than 1 hour driving (you must have the car except for Les Saisies or Arrêches Beaufort that you can reach by bus), go to visit Annecy or Olympic game museum of Albertville, enjoy the very good local food, try to prepare local dishes by yourself, etc.
Feel free to ask me for any helps to organize your stay in Albertville!

Interaction with Guests

***Check-in/check out***
I rent the flat during my holidays and work-travelling so I probably won't welcome you (but a good friend will do that perfectly!). We can exchange as much as you want before your arrival. For details, advices, helps or whatever, feel free to write me e-mails.
For check-in and check-out times I’ll see individually. I know many neighbors ready to receive you at any time (or almost)!

So if you are looking for a comfortable environment with a unique atmosphere, an authentic way of life, some great food&wine experiences, contact me.

The only thing which is very important for me, it is that you respect the environment, the neighbourhood and all my stuff which I leave in the apartment by confidence with you.

  • This flat is very well placed at the heart of a very old village overlooking the peaceful, traffic free square. The flat it self is cheerfully decorated, comfortably furnished and quite spacious. It is well equipped and Julie's information book is very well presented. There were also a number of maps and leaflets which were also very useful.

    We liked Conflans very much and people were very friendly and helpful. We did a number of bike rides and walks - the paths are well sign posted. We were fortunate that there was a medieval festival while we were there which was very well organised and provided a very good day's entertainment. We also went to baroque concert in the church which turned out to be a top class performance. There were also a number of other local festivals and world championship competitions in the ski resorts. The ones we went to were great fun. The information centres were a mine of information and extermely helpful. Our holiday in Conflans was varied and very enjoyable and Julie's flat is in prime position.

  • We stayed in Julie's apartment in Conflans for a week and we had a fantastic time. We didn't get to meet Julie because she was in Paris but she was very helpful and attentive by text and email. She even arranged for a friend (Barbara, who works in the studio downstairs and who is also very friendly and helpful) to pick us up from the station!

    The apartment is in a traditional building on the village square and is very comfortable and quiet. Everything works well and we had no problems at all. Conflans is a beautiful and peaceful village with a bar, 3 restaurants and a museum. There are lots of walks to take and it's easy to get to Areche on the bus for skiing.

    You should definitely stay here - it's a wonderful experience.

  • The flat is lovely with a charming neighborhood. When I came, everything was clean and I really appreciate the nice welcome.

  • We had a lovely week in Albertville watching the Tour de France, and I can say without doubt that staying in Julie's place made the trip for us.

    Conflans is the cutest idyllic French mediaval village you have ever seen, and Julie's place overlooks the square. The photos do not do the square justice.

    She even put together a beautifully written guide for our stay, about the apartment itself and the surrounding area.

    We ate out at Claire's restaurant every night, which is right next door.

    This is the PERFECT place to base yourself for a week in the Alps. Don't even think about booking a hotel, go for Julie's place.

About
I'm a 32 years old's frenchie who lives in a typical small village in the french Alps. I love mountain, skiing, cooking, organising big potlucks with my friends, sharing moment with my family (I'm very close to my 2 brothers) and as much as I can, I try to travel with my friends, my brothers, my family or alone... I like to share experiences with people all over the world, to listen stories and to learn new things about everything (especially food to be honest!). So I can also share my best recipes ;) Otherwise I'm discreet, respectful and well educated person.
