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 is in the 3. floor (under the roof), so there are many stairs to walk up/down every day, with a nice balcony to the east side and views onto the mountains. Perfect for having breakfast and dinner outside. The spacy kitchen is fully equipped with everything you can imagine. That's fun to prepare delicious meals every day. Small bathroom, but modern. Be aware that the apartment is under the roof, lots of possibilities to hit your head, but therefore it has its own charme and character. The apartment is close to the street, but you don't hear any traffic. Big parking lot. WLAN. Supermarket on the opposite of the street. So very comfortable stay, feel like at home! We had a perfect one-week stay there end of august and would absolutely recommend the apartment. Especially great for climbers/hikers with a car, Ailefroide is just a 10min. drive with so many great possibilities! But also Briancon isn't really that far...

                                                                                                      5 of 5

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.
