Vallouise - Haute Alpes

Located in the Southern French Alps, not many people have ever heard of it, yet it is the biggest National Park in France with peaks over 4000m. The best bit is the weather, we have over 300 days of sunshine a year, and that’s for real. We feel it is Provence in the Alps! Vallouise itself is a real working mountain village. It is not rich like the Northern Alps, but this just adds to its charm. Tourism is kept under control, and you still find you will not be understood unless you speak some French.

We have lived here for 5 years, and love every season. Long hot summers (but with nice cool evenings), fantastic colours in the autumn from the Meleze pines which are the only pine tree to drop their leaves and big snowy winters and springs filled with wild flowers. It really is like this!

During the winter, we have cross country skiing for our doorstep and an igloo in the garden most of the winter. (Puy Saint Vincent, our local ski resort, is just 10 minutes up the hill.)

The apartment fitted out requirements perfectly. It was as lovely as it looked in the photos. Clean, comfortable, quiet location and well equipt and offers safe bike storage. William and Dominique were also lovely hosts and did their very best to make us feel welcome. The apartment was well placed to cycle all the local Cols with the Lauterete on the doorstep as well as easy access to Col Du Izoard, Galibier and many others. Definitely comes highly recommended from us!

The spaciousness and comfort of the apartment was worth not being slopeside for, saying that it is only a very short walk to the cable car in Briancon or a 10 minute drive to Chantemerle cable car anyway. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you needed for self catering. The bedrooms and sofa bed were all very comfortable with linen and towels provided. The open plan living area was great for evenings after a day out skiing. Shops, bakers, butchers, bars and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. You can walk up into the old town of Briancon in 15 minutes for stunning views and even greater choice of restaurants. I would highly recommend this apartment and Olivier was extremely friendly and helpful.
