We had an amazing time staying in Christian's beautiful cabins. A gorgeous drive up a winding mountain road leads to Les Esselards, gardens filled with flowers, the cleanest smelling air, and the wonderfully comfortable country cabins.
They were clean, amazing facilities, we cooked dinner the 2 nights we stayed, and ate outside on the porch. The beds were the most comfortable we slept in in all of France - sleeping in the pure country darkness, away from lights and noise, only crickets and birds chirping. Absolutely beautiful.
Christian was easy to get in touch with as we were making our way to the cabins, and very friendly. He gave us some maps and encouraged to explore the Lyon area, and talked to us about other sites to see on our journey through the south of France.
I would stay in these cabins every year if I was planning on going to France. And do yourself a favor - spend more than one night! You won't want to leave in the morning.
