  General Info  
  If you’re a couple looking for the perfect mountain retreat, the Bubble House is for you. It’s a traditionally built Alpine chalet in a tranquil mountain hamlet designed just for two - a welcome change from the identikit shoebox-sized studios couples are usually forced to choose. The state-of-the-art appliances in the ground floor kitchen/diner are coupled with clean white walls set off by the ancient timbered ceiling, oak door and tiled floor. The full length tub in the spacious bathroom is perfect for soaking away aches and pains at the end of the day. Dry off with a huge white towel and wrap yourself in a fluffy bathrobe before heading upstairs to curl up on the cushion-strewn leather sofa in front of the roaring log fire in the cosy lounge. Wake up to the stunning mountain views from the mezzanine sleeping platform before heading off for an active day skiing or snowboarding in winter, or mountain biking or hiking in summer.  
 
  Details on the area surrounding the property/accommodation  
  We are in one of the most easterly and spectacularly beautiful parts of France, in the Alps right up against the Italian border. In the winter, the powder paradise of Sainte Foy ski resort is just 3kms away and is served by a free shuttle bus, or there's free parking if you prefer to drive. Val d'Isere, Tignes, Les Arcs and La Rosiere are all less than 25 minutes’ drive so there's plenty of choice of ski terrain for all ability levels and tastes. You can start walks and cycle rides from the house in the summer. You can also visit the nearby Vanoise National Park for its outstanding flora and fauna (Golden Eagles, marmottes, bouquetin and chamois are regularly spotted). Or why not take a picnic to the charming listed village of Le Monal, a picturesque, restored traditional Alpine farming hamlet.
