THE BUBBLE HOUSE
The Bubble House is a charming, ancient stone-built cottage at Maisons Dessous, a small, peaceful hamlet just 3kms from Sainte Foy resort. There is a regular shuttle bus service during the day in the winter season. It has been entirely re-decorated and furnished with a delightful mix of the traditional and modern to make a cosy, romantic hideaway. The Guardian certainly thought so when they selected it as an ideal romantic ski chalet for two in February 2012 (read article)
