Mountain Flat in Col de L'Arzelier, France

Hi !
I am François, DNA Expert, Inventor and Entrepreneur in Biology.
I propose my mountain flat for a quiet stay, with fresh air and mountain hikes.
The flat is located 20 min by car, south of Grenoble, france.
The small village of "col de l'Arzelier", at 1100 m of altitude and well known for hiking.
You will have a very cosy and comfy flat of 30 m2 that can welcome up to 4 persons and have all amenities: bathroom with shower and washing machine; Kitchen with stove, oven, micro-wave and equipement for raclette and fondue. Internet (20 Mbps, allowing to do videoconferences), a collection of books in french and board games.
The mountain corner has 2 beds and the living room a sofa you can convert in bed for 2 persons.
You will enjoy the exceptional view on the forest, as well as on the "mont Aiguille", the incredible square-shaped mountain where alpinism was first invented in 1492.
Many hiking trails accessible from the flat as well as fantastic trails such as the "randonnee des passerelles", a trail during which you will cross a lake through rope bridge (Monteynard lake).
I strongly recommend the restaurant of the village "Les Agapes de l'Arzelier".
Welcome home !
Kindest regards,
