About David Thierry

We are a couple in pre-retirement who love to living in the Ubaye Valley. The southern yet mountain atmosphere seduced us. We enjoy the large difference between the seasons and take advantage of the variety of sports, activities and festivals possible during each one.

David Thierry purchased this apartment in 2009

Why David Thierry chose Alps Valleys - Barcelonnette

We would like you to be able to take advantage of this multifaceted ideal setting, when we are absent from our home. It is our primary home so it has all the comforts, is well maintained and available for you. We request that you respect this amazing place. We only seek supplemental revenue to help us pay monthly expenses when we are absent.

What makes this apartment unique

In a small 3-storey, luxury residential building of recent construction, only 15 apartments total, with an elevator, interphone and private parking, located in a quiet area only a few steps away from downtown and the golf course. There are only 5 apartments on the garden level that have a terrace. There are few seasonal or yearly rentals in this building as owners come and go regularly. There is a pleasant ambiance in the building as mutual respect is shown and shared by all. The apartment furnishings are modern, the decoration too, there are paintings on the walls. There is a large glass sliding door in the living area. TNT channels are available on the TV, home theatre, in short, the same comforts that you have in your own home.

Appartement très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Appartement très bien équipé et agréable avec une terrasse bien orientée. Très propre. Belle vue sur les montagnes. Propriétaire très sympathique et souple au niveau des heures d'arrivée et de départ. Petit bémol pour la literie, matelas assez fin et pas très confortable.

Owner's Response: Merci pour vos commentaires élogieux qui nous touchent. Il est vrai que lorsque l'on est habitué à sa literie de tous les jours, il est difficile de s'adapter à un autre lit... Ce type de couchage est de très haut de gamme avec les caractéristiques maximum: matelas neuf, en haute densité 55 kg avec mémoire de forme.

Appartement très agréable, confortable, particulièrement bien équipé

  • 5 of 5

Lors de nos recherches de location, nous sommes très attentifs à la qualité et à la situation par rapport aux différents services. Tous ces critères sont réunis dans l'appartement de M et Mme DAVID ce qui a contribué à la réussite de notre séjour. Nous souhaitons souligner que rien n'a été oublié surtout dans le domaine de l'électroménager et des nouvelles technologies. Nous voulons également remercier M et Mme DAVID pour leur accueil et leur disponibilité.

Quinze jours très agréables.

  • 5 of 5

De super vacances

Les Propriétaires, nous avaient fourni des documents afin de préparer nos activités (culturelles et sportives) bien à l’avance.

C’est leur résidence principale lorsqu’il ne loue pas leur appartement, donc rien de manque en confort.

L'appartement est bien situé, au calme et à 10 minutes de marche de Barcelonnette. Il est grand, très lumineux, fonctionnel et très bien équipé. La terrasse est plein sud, à l’abris des vents, et est très ensoleillée.

La Résidence et l’appartement sont très calme, il donne un sentiment de quiétude et apporte une vraie repos.

Le Golf et le bowling sont à proximité ainsi que commerces et restaurants

Les activités sont nombreuses en Ubaye. (randonnées, VTT, baignade,activités culturelles...)

Une très bonne adresse et nous recommandons cette location sans hésitation.
