Make a holiday apartment in Les Vigneaux your home away from home

Listed here on HomeAway, holiday apartments in Les Vigneaux will give you a comfortable base whether you visit for skiing in winter or outdoor splendour in summer. In winter your Les Vigneaux holiday home will be a cosy and restful hideaway, blessed with creature comforts like fully-equipped kitchens and bathrooms, as well as Internet access. When summer comes around, Les Vigneaux apartments offer access to private gardens, and at any time of year you can revel in sumptuous views of the Écrins National Park. Ski resorts, historic towns, and vast mountainous expanses are all around and waiting to be enjoyed.

Things to do

-Winter sport. The closest ski resort is Puy-Saint-Vincent, which boasts 33 runs served by 12 lifts. Pistes here are steeper than average for the region, while the valley around has a lot of terrain for Nordic skiers to explore. Serre Chevalier is near the city of Briançon and a bit larger, with 102 runs totalling 250 kilometres. The facilities here are updated regularly – recent additions include a cable car and six-seater chairlift.

-Summer recreation. When the snow melts the Écrins National Park is the place to be if you want fresh air and breathtaking natural beauty. The range of activities available in the vicinity of Les Vigneaux is seemingly endless and includes horseback riding, mountain biking, climbing, paragliding and much more. If you’re here in late-June or early-July you might catch a glimpse of the Tour de France peloton. Walks are also plentiful, with circular trails that range from demanding to light.

-Watersports. In the spring and summer the rivers Durance and Guisane swell with Alpine melt-water. This attracts thrill-seekers who come for the first-rate whitewater conditions – there are some spectacular drops and long stretches of rapids to battle through. Local businesses offer kayak, canoe and rafting trips. The rivers, together with their various tributaries, offer astounding scenery, with gorges and steep mountainsides clad with dense woodland.

-Briançon. This medieval walled city is the highest city in Europe, at more than 1300 metres above sea level. The UNESCO-listed fortifications here were designed by the esteemed military engineer Vauban in the 1600s to defend this vital strategic post on the very edge of southeastern France. Inside Briançon see the Cathedral of Notre Dame and Saint Nicholas, recognised by its remarkable twin bell towers.

-Gastronomy. At the various local restaurants, inns, open farms and markets you’ll be able to get to know the cuisine of the Hautes-Alpes. Laragne and Queyras are two locations in this department known for their superb cheese – bleu du Queyras is a wonderful cow’s cheese. Honey is another important product in this Alpine region, as are some fabulous wines, known for being agreeably fruity.

Weather in Les Vigneaux

The city of Briançon, just a few minutes from the village of Les Vigneaux ,is among the sunniest cities in France, getting around 2500 hours a year.

Beautiful apartment is convenient but quiet location

5 of 5
This was our 3rd time at this comfortable department located in the quieter but very convenient area of Les Pres in Puy Saint Vincent 1400. There are stunning views of traditional barns and churches over to the Ecrin and Queyras mountain ranges from the front of the apartment. The location has it's own parking although the local car park is just over 100 meters away for overflow parking. Beginner slopes which link into the main ski area are no more than 200m away and its a short 200m slide down to the main super fast chairlift into Puy Saint Vincent 1600. There's a bar tabac 200m one way and a small supermarket 200m the other. 3 ski shops are within easy reach as well as a couple of restaurants, laundry and the free bus service (in season) stops close by. There really is everything you need within easy reach . Outside is a full length balcony with bench to take in the evening sunshine after a day on the slopes or out biking. Plus a convenient locked kit room which will take skis/bikes or whatever outdoor kit you bring. The inside has everything you need for 9 people although we find it such good value we hired it with just 4 of us so we could have loads of room . 2 double rooms and two bathrooms are great if you want a comfortable and quiet holiday for just two couples and there is a third room with single and bunk bed and a double sofa come double bed in the front room so you can sleep 9 if you want. If you don't know Puy Saint Vincent - it's a fabulous resort with the incredible good value Galaxy ski pass covering Puy and giving a day each in Serre Chevalier, Montgenevre, Sestriere, Pelvoux and usually La Grave/Les 2 Alpes and Alp D'Huez. However the last 3 weren't possible this year due to road damage on the other side of the Col de Lauteret. You'll need a car to access these resorts - we've driven over before but this year got an Easyjet flight to Turin and then hired a car for the easy 2 hour drive in to Puy. If you don't mind organising your own holiday - the logistics of getting here are as easy as any main stream Northern Alpine resort but far better value. PSV is as much a summer resort as a winter resort with world class kayaking down in the valley, a number of Tour de France climbs for the road bikers and local MTB trails in the resort. The local climbing and mountaineering is some of the best in the Alps. We've stayed at a number of locations in the valley but I guess you can tell this is our favorite :-)

An extremely well-equipped ground floor family apartment, with great views and helpful owners.

5 of 5
The ground floor apartment is located in a small quiet development of houses 5 minutes by car outside Argentiere La Bessee just off the road to Vallouise and on peninsular between the Durance and Gyronde rivers. 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.
