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.

It was a family home ! Lovely chalet

5 of 5
Lovely chalet. It was really as if the family had moved out and we had moved in. Lots of personal artifacts and equipment in the chalet, very trusting of the owner. Lovely south facing views of the surrounding mountains. A real sun trap so good for relaxing and getting a tan if that's your thing. We met the owner and he was very nice and helpful. He's a Alpine Mountain Guide and being a climber myself we got on well. Great location for what we wanted to do which was hiking, cycling and via ferrata. Plenty to do in the area. You will need a car though to get to the honey pots which are all within about 30 mins drive. Would book again !
