Holiday house

Petit Bois


A very special holiday home with a breathtaking view. The house is located on 'hiking and mountain bike paradise de Ceuse'; a beautiful place at 1350 meters altitude in the Hautes-Alpes (the sunniest part of the French Alps). We built the house ourselves after we fell in love with this unique place. The house is a unique round wooden "lodge", made in traditional Northern European style and attractively furnished with a very comfortable seating area, a spacious kitchen and many 'montagnarde' details. Petit Bois stands on 1025 m² of private land with a lovely garden and has spectacular views. Through the huge windows of the living room, you can look at the Italian Alps from the couch. And at night you can enjoy the clear sky. The house is fully equipped and offers everything for a wonderful stay. Think of all at the table on the large covered veranda, roasting marshmallows over the campfire in the fire pit or enjoying the lovely wood stove on a cool evening (the firewood is ready).
There are two bedrooms. One bedroom has a double bed, the other room has one double bed and two single beds. The spacious living room offers a unique view of the surrounding mountain world, the kitchen is fully equipped; from dishwasher to hand blender.

The Hautes Alpes offer everything for an active holiday. From Peitit Bois you walk into the Ceuze where you can make various beautiful walks. The massifs of the Devoluy and the Ecrins are a stone's throw away. Hikers, climbers and mountain bikers can indulge themselves here. The area is also very suitable for children. There are several child-friendly walks that offer plenty of adventure for young and old. From five years, children can gain their first climbing experience on the 'accro branches': spectacular climbing courses between the trees. For the advanced, even 'black' courses are available at a height of 10 meters. A swimming lake with a guarded beach is a 20-minute drive away from the nature house. Here you can also rent pedal boats.
The Ardeche, the Gorges Du Verdon and the Vercors are all easily accessible. Descend into the Gorge for a spectacular walk for the whole family (flashlight!), Go on cave expedition in the Ardèche or just visit a beautiful town like Embrun or Briancon.

We are Paul-Joop and Anke. Proud parents of two boys and of 'our log cabin' in the beautiful French Hautes-Alpes. We have built the house ourselves with a lot of love and attention, to the beautiful place it is now. We find it very nice to let others use our house, which you - according to our guest book - always welcomes as a warm bath after a day full of adventures in the mountains.

Location & tips

Additional information

In the winter of 2006 we outlined the contours of Petit Bois on the back of an old envelope. It was the beginning of a long road that eventually led to the realization of our beautiful wooden house, which we have always loved to call 'our log cabin'. The entire project of the preparations and construction we kept on weblog: We chose this place because there is so much to do here. We love rugged mountain hikes, but we also wanted the environment to be suitable for our - then still small - children. The area offers everything you want to endlessly 'play outside': walks in all categories, lazing by the beach, cycling, sailing, canoeing, rafting, clambering along mountain walls or among the trees, visiting towns ... and all that in a wonderful climate on the south side of the Alps.
