The house is situated in the hamlet, hameau des Faures, 800m above sea-level and 2 kilometers from the center of Revel village: a small dynamic community on the pretty circle of Belledonne (balcon de Belledonne) route.
The village has a few authentic shops where you can sample local products: the bakery (la boulangerie) and its wood-fed-fire-baked-bread, the greengrocer’s shop (l’épicerie), the goat farm (la chèvrerie), the delights of Belledonne farm (la ferme des délices de Belledonne) which makes its own organic ice cream from the milk of its cows Caress (Caresse) and Cuddle (Câline), and the farmer’s market on Saturday afternoon.
Don’t forget the walnut oil mill (le Moulin à huile de noix), restored thanks to a charity association in Revel which can be visited by appointment.
The Saturday morning market, at the Town Hall Square (La place de la mairie), gathers these as well as other merchants.
Finally the addresses of 3 restaurants:
- The mountain inn <<the grouse (la gelinotte)>>in the hamlet of Freydière
- Chez Margot in the hamlet of Freydière
- The bar in the village center
