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.

Well equipped warm comfortable chalet

5 of 5
This chalet is in a very quiet location in the middle of the valley !2 miles south of Briancon , its a great location for traveling around the Alps , which we did on our motorcycles. Don't let the airfoils put you off you look over it, its for gliders and we never heard a thing the week we were there. Muriel and Richard were very helpful with the booking despite the language barrier. Great holiday chalet in a nice location

A superb house in a superb location!

5 of 5
We had a fantastic two weeks visiting from Scotland. The house is fantastic, and is in a stunning location. The boys spent every morning running the local mountains, including some trips further afield to the Pic de Bure and Céuse, while the girls made the most of the pool and the view! Sisteron is a great place to visit and has some big supermarkets for everything you need. Thanks to Catherine for letting us stay in your beautiful house!! Richard and Family.
