Cable television, comfy sofas, every possible cooking utensil, masses of crockery, lots of hot water on tap, a strong wifi connection, bags of room, its all there. The photos of the house are completely accurate and it is as nice as it looks. A big plus is the broad balcony on the first floor (where the cooking, dining and living areas are located) providing wonderful views of the mountains across the valley and a great place to eat. The utility room downstairs is useful for the storage of bikes should you be a cyclist (like me) and the location right at the foot of the Vars and Bonnette is very convenient. The Allos, Cayolle passes and Pra Loup are all very close too amongst other lesser known gems. For a modest fee Christian also provides good quality bed linen and towels, a real bonus if space is at a premium in your car. The proximity to the swimming lake in Jausiers is also a big plus if not all of you are mountain walkers/cyclists. It is a nice place to go and the wakeboard tow at one end is a big attraction. The location higher up the Ubaye valley is beneficial if you are a mountain walker as the Maurin and Larche valleys and their higher peaks that much closer. If Jausiers is where you want to go for your holidays. I would give this house strong consideration.
