Mountain village home with Norwegian Forest cats
I'm looking for someone to come and look after my lovely cats and my home in the mountains while we are away.
Our Home & Location
We live in the village of Landry in the beautiful Savoie, Auvergne Rhone-Alpes region of France. It is 7km outside of the town of Bourg-saint-Maurice, close to the resorts of Les Arcs and La Plagne. The village has a small shop and two small bar/restaurants. The house comprises an open plan kitchen/diner, large lounge, 3 bed, 2 bath, 1 WC, a large basement and 2 car parking spaces within a garage.
There is a train station in the village, just before the larger station of Bourg- saint-Maurice (the ski train goes direct from London St Pancras in the winter months). The closest airports are Chambery and Grenoble (regional); Lyon and Geneva (national)....
In the winter season: To access the ski areas there is a daily shuttle bus service from Landry to Peisey-Vallandry (lower part of Les Arcs resort). This is free apart from on Saturdays, when you need to buy a ticket from the train station down the road. There is also a free shuttle bus that goes from the village to the funicular station in Bourg-saint-Maurice. The funicular takes you from Bourg-saint-Maurice up to the resort of Les Arcs (1600) in approximately 7 minutes.
Although having a car isn't essential, it is definitely advisable, as you will be restricted by the timings of the infrequent trains/buses in order to get to supermarkets/shops/restaurants/resort. You can hire a car at the airport, or in Bourg. + More info
