Sweet home in French Alpes, near by Vercors home swap

At the foot of the legendary Vercors (15 mins to the plateau), character home renovated with natural materials, we have made a homely nest! on the ground floor: a large living area, kitchen/ lounge opening onto the garden. Upstairs: bathroom with bath and 3 bedrooms to sleep 4 people (1 double and 2 singles) and a sofa bed in the living room. Garden measuring 400m², 15 mins from the centre of Grenoble, we feel lucky! Swings, sandpit, cabin and small pool in the summer to keep the children busy unless they prefer to play with our cats Sokette and Mimosa...
