We have just returned from a week's summer holiday in the Marques family chalet in Saint-Saveur and think we possibly had the best accommodation in the whole Serre Poncon valley! The chalet itself is very comfortable and well-designed. There are wonderful views from every room and it is spacious, light and airy, even in very high summer temperatures. We loved the three eating areas (in the main room, on the balcony and in the garden) and thought the chalet was very well equipped with everything we needed. On three nights we had BBQ's. The garden is pretty, safe and full of fruit trees - we picked and ate nectarines every day. The views of the lake are stunning, and change every hour of the day, from the clarity of the early morning, to the haze of the late afternoon and lit up in the evening with sparkling lights across the valley. In every other direction there are stunning views of the surrounding mountains. You can go on walks from the chalet and you can also walk to a wonderful restaurant called Les Manins where you will have a memorable meal.
Nathalie who is the key holder is extremely kind and helpful. The chalet was immaculate when we arrived and she gave us lots of advice on where to go and some of her favourite places in the valley. There are lots of helpful tourist brochures and maps in the chalet (as well as books and board games).
Jean Pierre Marques was extremely helpful when we booked and made the whole process very easy for us. We were absolutely delighted to find this wonderful chalet in this unique area. It seems few British people come on holiday in this area and we feel we've discovered something pretty special. There is so much to do for all age groups including all water sports and white water activities, incredible walking, culture (Embrun is a lovely historic town) and of course skiing in winter.
Our thanks to Nathalie and the Marques family.
