Walkers, Cyclists, Motorbikers, Mountain lovers..... Welcome to the heart of the French Alps.
Situated between the Vanoise National Park and the Beaufortain range, close to Bourg Saint Maurice and some of the most renowned Alpine passes (Madeleine, Petit Saint Bernard, Iseran...) the Gîte de Montvilliers, a charming old village school and farmhouse overlooking the Isere valley, is an ideal base for all forms of mountain activities.
La Route des Grandes Alpes Begun in 1909, both to improve the access of isolated Alpine populations and to fulfill the growing interest in automobile tourism by creating a spectacular itinerary from Evian to Nice through the highest passes and most interesting valleys.
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday away with the motorbike, made all the more pleasurable by our stay at Gite de Montvilliers. Yves and Marie were perfect hosts, everything was spotlessly clean and the food was simply wonderful. A garage for the bike and excellent local knowledge of all the passes and local roads made it even more special. Thank you. Edward B, Norwich
