Mountain village Superb views to Alps Games cellar South facing balcony Garden

Our spacious family house was a Cheesemakers House before being totally renovated, it faces on to the village square. The back of the house faces south and the large South facing balcony takes advantage of the sunny aspect. Beyond the vines in the garden open pasture gives way to superb mountain views.
The ground floor comprises kitchen /breakfast room, dining room with french door to balcony, lounge, bathroom and utility area. Upstairs 4 bedrooms: 1 double and 3 twin rooms, another bathroom and a small balcony, good for catching the last evening sun. At the garden level there is access to the vaulted cellar - always cool in summer which has a snooker table, table tennis and table football. Linen is supplied free of charge and free village Wi-Fi is available. Parking immediately outside the house.
The unspoilt village of Hotonnes has a small supermarket and boulangerie with post office agency. This is only 50 metres away so very handy. At the other end of the village Yves and Christine give a friendly welcome at the Coq'ain bar restaurant, open most days for a substantial lunch and evening meals by arrangement.
Most of the time the village is quiet but occasionally the village comes to life when a cycle race passes through (even the Tour De France.) The village square hosts the annual Agricultural Show and other events according to season.
The village is at an altitude of 724 metres so tends to cool down a little after a hot day. Above the village (10 minutes by car) is the ski station , This is a great set off point for walks or mountain biking (hire available.) There are tennis courts up here, a biathlon stadium, Pizzeria and Restaurant etc. A short walk takes you up to a view point of Mont Blanc and the Alps. The flowers in spring are superb and the beech woods turn a magnificent colour in autumn.
Walkers - numerous walks start from the house on marked paths. Serious walkers will appreciate the high level ridge walk Tour de Val Romey which starts at the Grande Colombier 1500 metres.
Cycling - quiet roads and reasonable gradients make for great climbs and exhilarating descents. There are numerous marked trails for mountain bikes.
Swimming – Indoor pool 15kms. Outdoor pool 10kms. More interesting is a splendid swimming lake with beach and bar about 20mins by car. There is also swimming in the lake at Nantua along with other water sports.
Fishing – A beautiful lake only 3kms away is very popular for fishing.
There are so many caves, waterfalls, vineyards etc to be explored, good local restaurants, wine tasting and much more besides.
