Make a holiday rental in Embrun, France your home away from home

Embrun is a small town and commune in southeast France’s Haute-Alpes department. It sits beneath Mont Guillame, perched atop a cliff and features a number of interesting historical sights. Embrun holiday rentals are set in a breathtaking location, with a truly impressive natural landscape all around.

Things to do in Embrun, France

One of the main attractions close to holiday accommodation in Embrun is the attractive old town, which has been beautifully preserved. The streets of this classic Provencal settlement are free of traffic, and feature independent shops and cafes. The cathedral here – the Notre-Dame du Real is considered one of the most impressive religious buildings in the entire Dauphine Alps. Particularly attractive here is the 15th Century organ, which has recently undergone restoration. Elsewhere, it would be well worth seeking out the Romanesque Maison des Chanonges, from the 13th Century and La Tour Brune, a keep tower that dates all the way back to the 1100s and once formed part of the town’s defensive walls. Finally, the Archbishop’s garden and promenade are also particularly lovely.

If you arrive at Embrun self-catering accommodation in the winter months then you’ll have a number of excellent ski resorts in the area, including Les Orres, Draye Crots, and Reallon. The former is a family oriented resort with 100 kilometres of runs suitable for all ability levels. Crevoux is an intimate, unpretentious ski resort, noted for its sizeable Nordic ski area just 15 kilometres from Embrun. Alternatively, if you find yourself in the area in the summer, the surrounding mountains offer a host of activities, including hiking, mountain biking, climbing, as well as whitewater rafting, swimming and canyoning at the rivers nearby.

Places to visit on holiday in Embrun, France

There’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site within a few minutes in the car of self-catering holiday rentals in Embrun. The Place Forte du Mont-Dauphin is a French National Monument, and party of the Fortifications of Vauban, all designed by the Marquis de Vauban between in the late-17th and early 18th Centuries. It’s considered one of the most spectacular examples of French military architecture from the period.
