Sitting at the toe of the French Alps, Grenoble teems with bakeries, butchers, museums, cafés and fine dining restaurants. A mecca for skiers and hikers, it serves as a gateway to Vercors Massif, Belledonne and the Chartreuse Mountains.
Citadines City Centre Grenoble, 3-star serviced residence, is nestled near the Place de Verdun and close to the River Isère. This river looks out to Fort de la Bastille, a hilltop fortress that draws multitudes of tourists to her. Take a walking trail, enjoy a cable car ride or gear up and get on an exhilarating zip-line ride.
The residence is also near to Parc Paul Mistral, an urban park ideal for sports, picnic and people-
watching. For some edge-of-the-seat live action, head to Stade des Alpes and catch a football match.
While in Grenoble, a must-see attraction is definitely the Place Saint-André, where a 13th-century collegiate church dwells. The church is one of the earliest landmarks to bear Gothic architectural design elements. Follow this fascinating journey with a visit to Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle, where up to 1.5 million specimens of fossils, minerals, animals and plants offer a remarkable sight.
Come year end, winter sports resort Les Sept Laux beckons. Alternatively, go skiing at Chamrousse, the very site where French Olympics champion Jean-Claude Killy was crowned in 1968.
Unplug yourself after a full day of sightseeing and hiking. A sanctuary in a gorgeous city, Citadines City Centre Grenoble is where you can recharge for the next day. Relish the peace of the private enclosed garden or rest up in your apartment, which contains a kitchen, cosy bed and complimentary Internet access.
