About the property

A two parts below which a river flows: Clarée, so named!

Near (11kms) from the ski resorts of Mont-Genèvre and Serre Chevalier, the "Béouriou" however is at the crossroads of cross-country tracks that run along the valley of Clarée (La Vachette up Névache) and beyond ...

So much for the winter.

But beyond the winter - (! Blessed) and his light - In the summer for its freshness (too long desired!) But in all seasons, because the valley of Clarée really deserves its reputation "international" to be one of the valleys who knew, better than others (this throughout the Alps!), Preserve its authenticity, that base in Val des Pres you will therefore be a "haven".

The village is near: it is beautiful, it is intact; it is the middle of the valley, that Clarée: intact, too. The apartment is functional: it will leave you with this site; you'll be ringside, forgotten the rest.

It offers enough space for 4 beds, in the sense of 4 adults; but it sleeps 6 sleeps, as occasional or family configurations. It is part of a collective residence, while being a bit detached from it, reserving it privileged access to the river (see photos attached). Bathroom (with bath), microwave, "TV cable", Hi Fi, offer a good "base camp" to gain strength, to adventure ... and clear his head. The mountain is there, all around, and for those who can take it!

On the border between France and Italy, Val des Pres is both far from the world - it is just above! - But it also belongs to him: the museum of "Castello de Rivoli", one of five contemporary art museums that count in Europe, is just one ten away, and still the Italian Piedmont. How can you resist?

Skip the mountains, breathe the air change, that's one of the pleasures that you offer this place ... but from the air it! That of its unspoiled valley, caught between the Oisans massif (and its majestic Meije), and the slow descent through the Val di Susa to neighboring Italy, its plains.

Très bel endroit

  • 5 of 5

Idéalement placé au début de la merveilleuse vallée de la Clarée , cet appartement offre un cadre parfait pour passer de bonnes vacances. Bien équipé ( petit bémol pour le flexible et le rideau de douche) suffisamment spacieux et très calme tout en étant à 10 mn de Briançon.

Accueil téléphonique très sympathique. Nous renouvellerons l'expérience !

Sempre una Certezza!

  • 5 of 5

Essendoci trovati benissimo l'anno scorso, abbiamo deciso di affittare per la seconda volta questa casa. Rimaniamo di nuovo soddisfatti della disponibilità dei proprietari, della ottima posizione della casa e soprattutto dalla comodità che offre, avendo tutto il necessario per un soggiorno confortevole.

Sicuramente torneremo, essendo ormai una certezza per noi!

non troppo curata

  • 3 of 5

cominciamo dalle note posizione è carina (in riva al fiume), la camera soppalcata è graziosa, il prezzo ragionevole. Non troppo curate le pulizie, polvere in abbondanza sui ripiani dei mobili e sulle scale... camera troppo piccola (se vi alzate durante la notte e siete dal lato sbagliato del letto dovete "calpestare" il vostro vicino), in bagno manca una presa di corrente e l'angolo cottura è decisamente brutto.

Molto Accogliente

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo prenotato lo chalet per 10 giorni durante le feste natalizie. La casa è molto accogliente, il riscaldamento è efficiente, pensare che stavamo in pantaloncini e maglietta dal caldo che faceva dentro pur mantenendo i termosifoni al minimo. Anche il boiler funziona benissimo, abbiamo sempre avuto acqua caldissima. I proprietari sono stati molto disponibili, a capodanno si è fuso un fusibile e ci hanno dato subito istruzioni su come risolvere il problema. Inoltre è molto vicina a Briançon . Unica pecca è il bagno, in quanto il water è in uno stanzino a parte molto piccolo e senza finestre. Per il resto, c'è la lavatrice e quando siamo arrivati la casa disponeva già di cibo e prodotti per i primi giorni.

Siamo molto soddisfatti, e sicuramente torneremo a stare qualche giorno di nuovo.

Elena e Dario.
