The Hautes Alpes department of southern France is a magnificent rural region consisting of Alpine peaks, deep valleys and wide plains. Tourism has largely missed the Hautes Alpes, making it a truly authentic destination for a holiday, with unspoilt countryside stretching far into the horizon and a cheerful atmosphere which is unlike that of anywhere on the beaten path of French tourism.

Things to do on holiday in Hautes Alpes, France

In winter, the ski resorts of Hautes Alpes draw visitors from across Europe to test the slopes, from the high speed downhill pistes to thigh burning mogul fields. There are over 30 Hautes Alpes ski resorts, the vast majority of which are built around authentic alpine towns, filled with gourmet restaurants serving delicacies with an undeniably local flavour, Alpine chalet style accommodation and magnificent little shops. The huge National Park de Ecrin is home to almost 50% of all the species of plant and animal found in France, including ibex, marmots and chamois, and is crossed with over 1,00km of footpaths.

In summer, the glorious Alpine scenery is a huge draw. Visitors arrive from all overEuropeto go walking, riding, mountain biking, climbing and para-gliding in the mountains, meaning that Hautes Alpes property is in high demand all year round. The rivers which cascade down from the Alps before slowing and widening across the plains also provide visitors to accommodation in Hautes Alpes with a huge range of leisure options. White water rafting and kayaking thrive during the spring when the melt waters fill river channels, turning them into gushing white water courses. The low land rivers attract those hoping to go sailing or canoeing during the summer months when the climate turns warm too.

The gastronomy of the Hautes Alpes department is excellent, and has a distinct flavour from many other regions in France. The cheeses and honeys produced in the Hautes Alpes mountains are full of flavour, and make taking a self catering property in Hautes Alpes a genuine delight.

Places to visit on holiday in Hautes Alpes, France

Boasting the second largest ski area in the world, Serre Chevalier is a magnificent destination for any standard of skier or snowboarder.

                                                              Great location -overlooking cable car meant we made the most of the ski area! The appartment is clean,tidy & well stocked! Belonging to Brits it had a kettle & toaster (sometimes not available in Continental owners appts)!! & a good selection of English DVD's which our teenage sons enjoyed on an evening! Although we didn't use - The slow cooker Was a bonus if you wanted to prepare a meal for your return! We found the owner -helpful, prompt & efficient in our communications! We would use the appartment again
