The Space

A Big yurt of 50 m2 in the massif of Wallows in Savoy. Calm down in the middle of nowhere. The view (sight) is 360 ° on baujus mountains (Massif of Bauges).

A lot of activities are nearby as trek, mountain bike, climbing and ski. In 30 mn, the lakes of Aix les Bains and Annecy. I know the region perfectly and could advise to you. I let some maps there.
The yurt is a circular, good housing environment to get fresh ideas or meditate. A big wood stove warms the atmosphere.
It is thus accessible summer and winter alike. In case of snowfall, it will be necessary to finish on foot, in rackets(snowshoes) or in skis according to your tastes. The last part of the way is cleared the snow.

In the winter, you will find there a sled and two pairs of snowshoes for hiking. Of information about the area is available with a map of the area at 1/25000 th.

Close to the yurt, is a small wooden chalet equipped for dry toilets and a shower to isolate.

The wood is at will. The massif of Bauges is a very protected place, with the presence of lynx and many chamoises. The local products are delicious cheeses.
Hope to see you soon!

  • Great experience staying in the yurt. Such a peaceful and restful place. We didn't meet Jean-Luc but he did invite us to coffee the next morning, unfortunately I didn't have my phone on until later. Everything that we could have needed was there in terms of kitchen. The loo has the best view of any I've seen! A wonderful place to stay.

  • Super location! Great host. If you like to rough it in every sense of the word, then this is the experience for you. More comfortable than camping but still very basic. One of our favorite moments was the rain all night long on the roof. We loved this so much we lost track of our day of departure !
    The bauges region is full of activities = we will be sure to return.

  • My wife and I stayed for three nights in the yurt in the absolutely beautiful Savoie region of France - we wish we had more time. The yurt was a perfect escape and a very unique experience, unlike just about anywhere else I've booked through airbnb. It was exactly as advertised and the views across the valley were spectacular - I would suggest planning a couple meals on the deck involving wine and cheese for anyone that books here!

    Jean Luc was very helpful with some local suggestions, there were lots of brochures and maps in the yurt about the region and Jean Luc came by one evening to help us with our electronic chargers. The beautiful French town of Annecy is only a 20-25 minute drive and well worth the visit. We had lunch in the nearby charming village of Bellecombe-en-Bauges and there is a great swimming lake in Lescheraines, just a 10 minute drive.

    I would highly recommend staying here - thanks Jean Luc.

  • Notre sejour de 4 jours et 3 nuits s' est tres bien passé. Conforme au descriptif. Le lieu est magique. Nous avons decouvert les Bauges, et redecouvert des plaisirs simples dus à l'absence de "technologies".
    Jean-luc a été tres sympa.

  • What a magical place to stay, we loved our time in the yurt. The views of the mountains are just spectacular and the pictures here don't do them justice. It was calm and peaceful and just the break we were hoping for. Thanks to Jean Luc for getting us settled in and being a very helpful host when we were making our enquiries before the visit. We'll be back as we loved it!

  • The yurt was just as we hoped. Really relaxing, peaceful setting. Jean-Luc was incredibly helpful and had great local knowledge.
    We would recommend it and hope to go back one day.
    Thank you to Jean-Luc for the experience!

  • Ce fut un super week-end prolongé dans la yourte de Jean-Luc ! Nous étions toutes ravies !
    La yourte correspond exactement à la description !
    La localisation, au milieu des caches et des champs, et simplement PARFAITE.

  • Superb place, scenic views of the fields and mountains, peace and quiet. This is a very unusual place to live. But you must be ready for a lack of electricity and sleep on a mattress on the floor. If you do not have any problems with such things you should definitely stay at this place for several days and enjoy siting in front of the fireplace, communion with nature and tranquility. And those stunning sunrises and sunsets!

  • Staying at the yourte was an amazing experience that I will never forget!!! The location is beyond words and our two days there were like a dream! Jean Luc was fond and beyond helpful, explaining us everything we needed to know to have a good stay. Great to relax and get back to the simple life. Truly a special place!!!

J'adore mon lieu de vie, je suis savoyard et montagnard mais j'adore voyager et j'apprécie surtout de rencontrer des personnes de différentes cultures. Nous sommes tous sur la même terre. J'aurais plaisir à vous faire découvrir mon coin. Je suis passionné de plein air, de randonnée et de ski. Mon film préféré, c'est danse avec les loups. Je suis un joueur de Batucada ici dans le groupe Batucadeva. I love my country, I am "Savoyard" but I love to travel and I especially appreciate to meet people from different cultures. We're all on the same planet. I have pleasure to introduce you to my mountain. I am passionate about the outdoors, hiking and skiing. My favorite movie is Dances with Wolves. I am playing Batucada here in Batuk'adonf group.
