About the property

The mountain hut Blanche is located in an old farmhouse, dating back to 1786, located on the square of the hamlet of Puy-Aillaud, depending on the town of Vallouise. This is the highest hamlet of this town with its 1600 meters, and nestled on a promontory of the mountain of La Blanche (2953 m) overlooking Vallouise. It is reached by a secondary road cleared of snow daily (essential chains). In winter parking 100 m from the lodgings. Puy Aillaud is inhabited all year by about thirty people, a farm is still exploited, and two restaurants run by locals await you.

Close to St. Anne's Church, this imposing building, a former farmhouse with stone walls up to 60 cm thick, houses two apartment houses restored in 2011. Access to the cottage called "La Blanche", on the first floor of the building by a wooden staircase overlooking the village square, and its windows open at once in this square located to the west, and his second balcony on the south, with a view to thirty kilometers, from the neck of the Pousterle above the ski resort of Puy-St-Vincent (10 km) to Montbrison, through the distant peaks dominating Argentière-la-Bessée and Embrun. The width of the balcony allows a breakfast "out of sight". This cottage is perfect for two people, but the sofa bed can accommodate two additional people. The balcony is common to both houses (small separation barrier with the lodging of Montbrison), it is possible to combine the two receive up to nine people. A baby bed is made available to tenants. In winter, the Pelvoux-Vallouise ski resort opens its slopes 100 meters from the house with the TV-ski Ajourdines of anemones and track that will take you on a ski area of ​​1000 meters in altitude. Gliding buffs can push up Puy-Saint-Vincent, who has a couple of ski lift or Vallouise which offers cross-country rings. Finally lovers of snowshoes and ski touring will have all the Ecrins mountain for them.

Pas très agréable

  • 1 of 5

Village pittoresque, mais le gite n'est pas très agréable à habiter - le "grand lit" est très étroit, le matelas un instrument de torture, reste le sofa dans la cuisine qui est trop court pour des personnes plus grandes de 150 cm...On passe toutes les soirées la tapette à la main pour chasser les mouches (il y en a des centaines chaque jour dès qu'on ouvre la fenetre)...le matin, on se réveille à six heures quand se reveillent les mouches...tout compte fait, l'objet ne semble pas très soigné, le jardin, le balcon plein de merde d'oiseau... Le meublement, la vaisselle, tout est très vieux, partiellement pas propre - on ne reviendra surement pas!

Owner's Response: Commentaire fort surprenant. En effet, le lit est neuf et a les dimensions requises françaises de 140cm pour deux personnes; le "sofa" dans le salon est un grand canapé convertible également pour deux personnes adultes, encore faut-il se coucher dans le bon sens !!! . Le jardin est aménagé dans un espace naturel de montagne et ombragé , mis gracieusement à la disposition des locataires ainsi que deux grandes tables de jardin neuves. Quant aux mouches la période de juillet est la saison de transhumance des moutons, les oiseaux comme les mouches sont des habitants naturels en montagne. Les meubles anciens sont pleins de charme et rénovés par nos soins car nous sommes antiquaires. La vaisselle est en parfait état. L'appartement est nettoyé à fond entre chaque location. Les photos sur le site montrent un appartement plutôt sympathique ! Cette locataire déçue aurait peut-être du louer dans un hôtel de grand standing. Madame Bertran propriétaire.

Un appartement douillet dans un village montagnard authentique

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons apprécié le confort de cet appartement accueillant après une journée de randonnée ou de visite dans le pays des Ecrins. Les propriétaires ont aménagé ce logement dans l'esprit de ce vieux chalet tout en pensant aux détails matériels et fonctionnels du quotidien. Adresse que nous recommandons sons hésiter pour se ressourcer et profiter de l'atmosphère de la montagne.

Très bon séjour

Location simple, très pratique, et bien équipée. Départ de rando a quelques dizaines de mètres de la maison.

Parfait pour un séjour de randonnées dans les écrins.
