About the property

Facing south - Panoramic view of the 2 terraces - Quiet & Comfort

Loft bright "combining modernity and tradition" .... the "tiptop" chalet is very pleasant in all seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter. Ideal for 4 people (6 max), the cottage is cozy, clean, functional and well equipped.

In summer, for younger as for older, many opportunities for well-being activities ("the great pure air") related to the beauty of the lake of Serre Ponçon and the surrounding mountains. For the winter season, the interest of the cottage is its proximity (25/35 minutes) winter sports resorts of Orres, Reallon, Vars - Risoul ... Crévoux and 1 early, Serre Chevalier ... .. allowing, for amateurs, to vary the daily pleasures of skiing or snowshoeing. Note that in case of bad weather or fog, cottage, well cocooning, is an excellent compromise unlike many housing stations.

Chalet tout confort, pratique, super bien équipé. Idéalement situé au dessus d'Embrun et se trouvant au départ de plusieurs vallées des Hautes Alpes (05) et des Alpes de Haute Provence (04).Le chalet est face à la station des Orres et vue panoramique sur les montagnes. Le chalet est bien entretenu par une dame très gentille et très serviable!!! Au départ du chalet vous pouvez vous rendre dans la vallée de la Vallouise, vallée de fréssinière, La Meije, le parc national des Ecrins , aller au plus haut village d'Europe ST Veran ect... Nous avons pu faire quelques activités de montagne , randonnées , marche à pied , rafting , hydro speed , VTT descente ect... Nous recommandons ce chalet car nous avons vraiment passé de superbes vacances.

Retour au Chalet Tiptop

  • 5 of 5

Revenant pour la troisième fois au chalet, nous avons apprécié ce séjour printanier, différent de l'été. La température est plus douce, l'Embrunnais est plus calme sans grande foule et les commerçants plus disponibles. En 5 minutes le centre ville est atteint.

Nous avons à nouveau bien profité du chalet et de ses améliorations : la cafetière style Nespresso est une bonne idée !

La nouvelle disposition du coin séjour et du salon nous est apparu plus rationnelle et bien agréable.

Nous reviendrons certainement encore y faire un séjour.
