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.)

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 :-)
