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

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.

The former is a family oriented resort with 100 kilometres of runs suitable for all ability levels.

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.

We were warmly welcomed by the Gite's hosts (Claude and Stephanie) and the children were entertained, using the swimming pool, trampoline, and Go Apes (accro-branche) equipment. We will definitely be back!
