Gîtes and guesthouses in the Chartreuse


Photo 052.jpg

The cradle of the Carthusian order, the emerald of the Alps as Stendhal loved to describe it, the Chartreuse became a Regional Natural Park in 1995. Spread over 60 municipalities between the departments of Isère and Savoy, plains, hills and highlands make it an exceptional area just minutes away from Grenoble, Chambery or Voiron, and only an hour away from Lyon.

This pre-Alpine mountain range, protected by its reclassification as the Chartreuse Regional Natural Park, has managed to preserve its sites despite being a longstanding tourist destination. The charm and simplicity of its villages, traditional gîtes and B&Bs, its magnificent spruce forests, torrents, and panoramic viewpoints offer visitors a variety of attractive features while providing an extensive range of equipment for Alpine and cross-country skiing.

Notoriety most likely due to bearing the same name as the world famous liqueur, the Chartreuse has the reputation for being the most frequented tourist attraction in the Dauphinois area.  Namely: the Plateau des Petites Roches, a well know site for gliding, the Monastery of the Grande Chartreuse and the Church of Saint-Hugues.

The Chartreuse à la carte!


Cheese or dessert? Such a cruel choice to make! The same difficult choice as having to choose between a great family outing or enjoying fun activities? The Chartreuse with its variety of activities puts an end to this dilemma: on the menu, walks in nature -obviously since that is somewhat a local speciality- that come highly recommended by the regular visitors of this mountain range. And as for the ingredients, open spaces, large crunchy lime-stone settings, crispy forest valleys with a dash of museums, all safe bets.

The Sappey en Chartreuse

Alpine and cross-counrty ski resort, the nearest to Grenoble (12 km), the Sappey en Chartreuse is at an altitude of 1000m. In the evening, the village centre becomes a lit up cross-country ski circuit. The Col de Porte site ensures a great skiing season at this medium mountain resort.
