Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Crots - Auboisdebout

“Base Camp” for activities in nature/or ski in winter. Mountain biking, lake...

The woods in our mountain forests lavish our studio flat with a very warm atmosphere.

At the foot of the mountains, with a balcony above the water level of the Serre-Ponçon dam, without being lost in the middle of nowhere and usually in one of the best climates of France: Presently, we are talking of more than 300 days of sunshine per year.

As well equipped as 'at home': Ground floor: dishwasher, electric oven and microwave, induction cooker, fridge and freezer, washing machine, wood stove, flat screen TV + sound bar, Bluetooth, and blue-ray player. Sleeping capacities: 140 x 200 cm reclining sofa (living room) + 2 double bedrooms (140 x 190 cm beds). If you are staying with a baby or a toddler, we shall provide for the 'appropriate sleeping equipment.

Spring, summer, autumn: Lake of the Serre-Ponçon Dam, river Durance, kilometres of walking and hiking, mountain biking, horse riding, etc., natural and cultural sites, architecture, worship, Via-Alta (www.via-alta.com), Aerial sports at less than 40 mn.

Summer: there are so many things to do on the Serre-Ponçon lake, you can carry out all the aquatic activities you like, including the most exciting (have you ever flown through Europe's largest water reservoir with an ultra light seaplane?). La Durance is the river on which you will carry out all the imaginable white water activities, mountain biking in all its forms in nearby mountain resorts, and many other things to discover.

Ah! We almost forgot, you could also stay and do nothing. Just enjoy spending time in a beautiful jewel box.

Winter: Ski resorts nearby are, Les Orres (20mn) Réallon (20 mins), Crévoux (25 mins), Risoul (35 mins), Vars (40 min), and other equally renowned places although a little further away, but the best: La Grave - La Meige (3600 m alt.) a 1hr 15mins drive.

Lots of fun!

About Catherine - Vincent CARBOU – AuBoisdebout

Winter: Vincent who is a ski instructor and mountain guide will be happy to advise you on the 'latest spots'. He can help you progress in skiing, downhill, cross or hiking, assist you with snowshoeing, and why not, during icy nights with full moon or stormy nights give you few hours ride to make you feel alive while following in the footsteps of mountain hare, fox, and maybe a boar, all taunted by the owl.

Other seasons: we can advise you on the best white water, water area, and hiking 'spots' as well as fun and/or memorable 'sites'. Indicate where you want to go and what you want to see (wildlife, flora, birds, etc.) and you can be accompanied, if you wish, to visit local producers, remarkable craftsmen, etc.

Catherine - Vincent CARBOU – AuBoisdebout purchased this house in 2011

Why Catherine - Vincent CARBOU – AuBoisdebout chose Queyras - Embrun region

Catherine and Vincent love to offer a haven of tranquillity to our visitors in a wooden house (wooden frame) and from ‘start to finish’, the ‘deco’ reveals that a lot of care has been invested in its construction. We live on the other side of the road and we can occasionally ‘recommend’ you good ideas, no matter the season.

What makes this house unique

At the foot of the Embrunais mountains, enveloped in rural tranquillity, you will not have enough eyes to admire the peaks or Lake of the Serre-Ponçon dam as well as the 'sunny side' and 'shady' forests, not enough ears to listen to rural silence, and will need to keep on your sun glasses around for some 300 days a year, this is the number of sunny days we enjoy. This climate does not prevent skiing all winter, and sometimes during spring, as well as long days of activities or relaxation, all these are possible throughout the year.

Gite chaleureux et agréable

  • 5 of 5

Le gite a un emplacement avec une superbe vue sur les montagnes et le lac de Serre Ponçon. Un accueil 1ère classe par le propriétaire du gite. Logement neuf, propre et agencé avec goût. La chambre aménagée en cabanes autonomes a été très appréciée par les enfants. Nous avons apprécié le petit plus du sauna en cette période de début d'hiver ! Non seulement, nous recommandons ce gite mais nous y retournerons !...

Très bon séjour au Bois debout

  • 5 of 5

Chalet très bien situé sur les hauteurs de Crots. Très bien pensé et joliment fini, il convient parfaitement à des vacances en famille ou entre amis. On ne s'y sent pas à l'étroit. L'équipement mis à disposition est neuf ou presque, et très bien fourni. L'accueil réservé par Vincent est très chaleureux. N'hésitez pas à faire appel à lui pour toutes sortes de conseils.

Très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine dans cette location. Le séjour était très agréable, le gite est bien placé, pas très loin d'embrun, et avec une très belle vue sur le lac de serre-ponçon. Le logement est construit avec goût. Le propriétaire est très disponible.

A proximité, le restaurant Les Peupliers à Baratier est à ne pas manquer !

Additional pricing information

Fees No additional mandatory fees
Refundable Damage Deposit £378

Nous pouvons exceptionnellement accepter 1 à 2, personnes supplémentaires, au delà de 8, mais pas plus, avec un prix de nuitée de 35 € par personne supplémentaire.
Lorsque la saison le demande, le chauffage de base (20°C)est inclus. Si les radiateurs d'appoint fonctionnent, et pour en limiter leur usage intempestif, fenêtres laissées ouvertes alors que le radiateur fonctionne, en fin de séjour sera demandé au vacancier d'en régler le coût, à raison de 0.10 € le Kw/h consommé. Un compteur électrique spécifique, dédié à cet usage du chauffage est prévu à cet effet, dont les relevés sont effectués en début et fin de séjour. Pour les mêmes raisons, nous procédons de la même manière pour l'électricité du sauna.
Prestations en option :
. option ménage de fin de séjour : 65,00 € dans la mesure ou la location n'est pas laissée dans le même état de propreté que celui trouvé à l'arrivée, appréciation effectuée en commun avec la personne qui fera l'état des lieux avant le départ.
. location de linge de lit : enveloppe d'oreiller + drap housse + housse de couette = 10 €/lit140x190cm/ semaine, 8€ pour les lits 90x190cm
. serviette de toilette : 3,00 € / serviette / semaine
A la demande des vacanciers, et après accords préalables :
- soucieux de permettre une arrivée confortable, nous pouvons faire quelques emplettes pour les premier repa et petit déjeuner du lendemain, ainsi que le charbon de bois pour le BBC de l'arrivée, et autre possibilités à convenir ....
- pour les "flambouilles" du poêle (automne, hiver, début du printemps), nous pouvons fournir le "bois qui va bien", en taille et en qualité : la caissette 30x40x50 cm = 7€
- en cours de séjour, selon votre envie, nous pouvons proposer des accompagnements en randonnée thématiques en fonction des centres d'intérêts des uns ou des autres : faune, flore, observation des rapaces, lecture et interprétation des paysages, géologie, nuit à la belle étoile, lever de soleil au sommet, balade à pieds, à skis, en raquette,etc ....
