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

I'm afraid we never wanted to leave! The house is gorgeous, the setting is sublime, on the edge of a forest with as many walks as you can manage, by a beautiful stream you can paddle in. This place is heaven. We loved the pool, the room, the grounds and everything about this place. Its the first time I have just stayed and chilled at the house rather than looking for constant outside stimuli. Truly relaxing. The rooms are extremely comfortable, the bed was heavenly and the whole place is spotless. Also as we have a dog, we really loved how welcome he was, its awful to feel like your dog is a nuisance but Humphrey was made extremely welcome and he enjoyed his stay as much as we did. However, the best feature of the accommodation is the hostess, Agnes. What a warm, lovely and engaging person. We felt truly welcome, nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast was fresh and homemade, 'just laid' eggs from the house's chickens, home made preserves and a view to die for... We cant recommend this place highly enough and we are sure we will return...

Facilities were just as advertised and our hosts were very kind although both of us only spoke a little of each others languages. The big house had facilities we did not use such as a restaurant and cafe bar, but the b&b guests we spoke to said quality was high. The pool is excellent and only closes when the last person goes to bed. There are ample sunbeds and umbrellas for all the houses and b&b guests so none of the reserving beds nonsense you get with a resort. The owners have two lively dogs that help them look after the property, they especially love you when you are having a Bbq! Local town is about 5 minutes drive down 'pig alley' -lots if wild boar in the forest and in the road -take care with speed. Beaumont de Roger has all the shops you need and 3 supermarkets. We would definitely go again, our only two requests would be that the house rules have an English translation, and that the little house either has access to fans during very hot days or bug screens so we could have windows open all night really recommend, thank you for a great holiday

The grounds are stunning and so peaceful; the manor is easily signposted and less than 10 minutes' drive from Beaumont Le Roger where you can find several shops and supermarkets. Agnes is so friendly and helpful and the dogs are beautiful (lovely when you are missing a dog of your own). The pool is great! We would definitely return.
