Make a holiday rental property or accommodation in Hautes Alpes, France your home away from home

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. Taking accommodation in Hautes Alpes provides visitors an unrivalled mix of Provincial sun and Alpine scenery.

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

The Hautes Alpes ski resort of Serre Chevalier is one of the most popular places to take holiday rental accommodation in Hautes Alpes. Boasting the second largest ski area in the world, Serre Chevalier is a magnificent destination for any standard of skier or snowboarder. Despite having over 300 days of sunshine a year, the snow record in Serre Chevalier is remarkable, and the scenery only adds to an already sensational skiing holiday.

Montgenevre is another excellent skiing resort on the huge Milky Way ski domain. It is a very small, traditional resort, just a few miles from the Italian boarder. Skiing is the main priority from a Hautes Alpes property in Montgenevre, as there is little après-ski to enjoy.

The ancient town of Embrun is a stunning town, which provides a sensational base for walking, riding and mountain biking holidays in Hautes Alpes, and during the spring, the Durance River is filled with white water rafts and kayaks.

Ideal in summer if you are biking, hiking or as we were motorcycling in the area. Big garage and boot and gear storage was excellent. Well equipped and maintained and would definitely book again. Terrace right outside the kitchen was ideal for soaking up the last of the sun and enjoying the views. 10 min walk down into town, 15 minutes back up !

It is situated close to the local town with parking only a minute walk away from the aparment. The apartment was cosy and very well equipped with lovely views of the surrounding hills. Anthony was very quick to reply to messages. Jagoda was very helpful and showed us around the apartment. She was only a call away if we had any queries or problems.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The supermarkets, shops and restaurants of the town are easily accessible. Those of Guillestre and Briancon are 10 - 15 km away. We came for a week of kayaking and for us it was excellent, but it would also suit cyclists, walkers, climbers or those simply wishing to explore this corner of the Alps. From the very start Veronique and Michel looked after us very well. They helped sort out a booking problem, warned us about transport strikes and petriol shortages before we arrived, were there to greet and see us off and solved a problem (we caused) with the TV late one evening. Otherwise we were left to enjoy the property. The apartment consists of a large kitchen/dinning/communal room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. All were fantastically well equipped. Outside there is a small terrace with table and chairs that catch the sun most of the day and look out over the steep garden, the Gyronde valley and the mountains beyond. A great place to take breakfast or chill after a hard day on the rivers. The central kitchen/dinner has large double fridge/freezer, a cooker with oven, capsule and other coffee makers, a good supply of crockery and saucepans and all the implements that would be needed. There is a large central work surface/table with stools. In addition there are armchairs and a lounger that doubles as an occasional bed. The satellite-TV is on the wall, providing a good selection of French channels. The is a good sized double bedroom, with shelf and wardrobe storage and a useful writing desk. There is also a smaller room containing full sized double bunk. We were three adults, but it would sleep four. The central room and the double bedroom had shuttered windows that shared the view over the valley and mountains. The shower room was not cramped and contained a selection of cleaning equipment and materials, a washing machine, extra towels, a heated towel rack and foldable clothes horse. The apartment was comfortable and a delight, and more than we could have hoped for. Thank you.
