Retired from the French Youth and Sports Administration, I live by myself in our renovated family home right in the heart of the village (my elder daughter has her alternative therapy practice on the ground floor and delivers treatments in “Shiatsu” one week a month, and I wouldn't mind more human contacts). A river and a spacious garden (with integrated barbecue, and table and garden chairs to eat out) shelter us from the buzz of noise and activity of the surrounding shops, and we can't get enough of the wonderful views over the mountains. The fantastic array of cultural/sporting activities available can be found on the tourist information site at http://www.ot-bozel.com. The village altitude (2,820 ft) and its ideal position with regards to the National Park « Parc de La Vanoise » (Pralognan), the Spa towns (Brides les Bains et Salins les Thermes), and the famous winter sports resorts (Courchevel, La Tania, Champagny/La Plagne, Méribel) make it the perfect basecamp. *see special tarrifs when wanting to combine your stay with a stay in a Refuge. * (check rates). Do check the following websites as they demonstrate the variety of activities you can enjoy in our area of « Tarentaise » (Savoie Region). http://www.ot-bozel.com ; http://www.courchevel.com ; http://www.champagny.com ; http://www.pralognan.com ; http://www.latania.com ; http://www.brideslesbains.fr Access to the apartment is via a staircase on the groundfloor, which leads to an open plan dining/sitting room featuring exposed wooden beams and a distinctive logfire burner. Large French windows lead outside onto a balcony overlooking the magnificient mountain range. The kitchen is open plan into the main room. Besides my own bedroom, the « yellow » guest room at the back of the property offers a garden/mountain view and can accommodate up to 2 people (2 single beds). It is next to the bathroom and separate toilet, for you ounly.
