XVIII farmhouse at 470m d'altitude

Apartment - Entire home/apt · D, Saint-Léger, Rhone-Alpes 73220, France

The Space

Our domaine is spacious, comfortable and close to nature. The apartment is very agreable with bedrooms, lounge, bureau and bathroom. We only lease to one group of people at a time whether it be one person, two or three or more..... so you will never be mixed with other guests.
Breakfast can be taken out onto the deck or in the dining room next to the open kitchen area. The kitchen may also be used by guests.
Among the surrounding mountains there are many lakes nearby for swimming and numerous skiing resorts,the Maurienne valley is home to around 20 ski resorts where there is also access to The Three Valleys via the Orelle gondola.

Authentic XVIII savoyarde farm, renovated and situated on a plateau at 470m altitude at St. Leger in the Valley of the Maurienne in the Savoie region of France.

Privileged surroundings at the foot of the chaine of the Belledonne mountains.

The property was taken out of the hunting zone 11 years ago and the land is organically managed ( cultivation of Saffron ) creating a haven for wildlife, also horses, cats and chickens live harmoniously here.

The valley of the Maurienne is the world's largest cycling area with prestigious mountain passes such as the Iseran, Madeleine or Galibier. We also rent out professional racing bikes, VTT, etc.

There are also a couple of good local restaurants which I will have a pleasure to tell you about.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My family and I stayed with Lesley overnight on our way to a ski resort. The location is quite picturesque, on the slope of the mountain. The apartment is nicely decorated, very fresh and clean. The girls particularly appreciated all the little nice details in the bathroom. Breakfast is fabulous! Lesley herself is very friendly and sweet. We will most definitely go back when in this part of France again.

  • Lesley was a wonderful host - nothing was too much trouble. She even let us use her kitchen to prepare dinner.

    The accommodation was spacious, included a very comfortable bed and a great breakfast. We slept very well here and enjoyed our stay.

    Thanks Lesley!

  • Highly recommended! The apartment is clean, spacious, and extremely comfortable (especially the bed). Lesley is the ideal host: thoughtful, kind, generous with dining and touring suggestions, happy to interact, yet never intrusive. Awaken to roosters in the Alpine air, and savor the genuine French country farm atmosphere! Breakfasts are ample and delicious (coffee, tea, croissants, breads, jams, yogurts, eggs, etc.).
    For Cyclists: this location is superb! At your doorstep are Glandon, Croix de Fer, Madeleine - and nearby are numerous legendary cycling routes such as L'Alpe d'Huez, Galibier, Telegraphe, and more. Lesley can help you arrange for quality bicycles. We stayed 9 days, and wish we could have stayed longer. We definitely plan to return!

  • My family and I had a great stay with Lesley on her farm. She was very helpful especially with bike hire, as we were in the area for the Tour de France. The accomodation was spacious and clean and my children had a lot of fun with the horses and her dog Bluey. The breakfasts were great, especially eating outside in her garden. We also appreciated the packed breakfast as we were off very early most mornings. Thanks for a great stay Lesley and next time we will definitely stay longer.

  • We really enjoyed our stay with Lesley, the kids had a great time exploring, playing with the horses etc. Everything was very tidy and comfortable and Lesley made sure we had everything we needed.
    Lesley was really nice, we enjoyed chatting about France and the old country ( she hasn't lost her Australian accent ) and we learned a thing or two about how saffron is produced.

  • Everything was wonderful: the surroundings, the farm, the beatiful appartment. Lesley was the perfect houst, and breakfast was sublime!
    We had the greatest time and will come back if ever in the area, and extremely recomend it to all.

  • Stayed there together with my Friend Ansfried as we we went to Valmenier the day after for cycling. Each had his own spacious room and double bed. Ideal stay for 6 people all together. There is also a study and a living room. Breakfast we served in a very nice kitchen, while the host was baking biscuits and served us Everything you want. (I went for the eggs with bacon)
    An ideal place to stay for bike riding (near Saint jean de Maurien) and to walk.
    Lesley is easy to talk to in french and australian so no language barier there.

    Thanks again Lesly
    Mind the head ;-)

  • I send my family up to Lesley and they still about it. They loved it very much and definetly go back! The breakfast was lovely and the apartment very spaceous and decorated with a passion for detail. Thanks for taking such lovely care of my family!

  • Lesley is the perfect host.
    Her home is in a beautiful part of France in the mountains, spacious, clean and a warm welcome and stay. Within walking distance through a small forest to the nearest village and there are good short drives to others.
    The area is peaceful and mountains all around.
    You feel like a friend with Lesley immediately rather than a guest.

  • Merci a lesley pour son accueil chaleureux. L'appartement est vraiment très douillet, les lits très confortables, le petit déjeuner est copieux. Les enfants peuvent s'amuser en toute liberté aux alentours.
