Overview

About the property

It is a love story with this cottage that was written long ago, seduced by its location in the heart of the mountains between Briançon and Lake Serre-Ponçon, bordering the beautiful Durance in turquoise colors where you will see the many kayaks coming from a lot higher as soon as you cross the bridge on your arrival, the glaciers being just above our heads.

LOCATION:

We are in the "wonderland", in Guillestrois, in the heart of the Ecrins and Queyras. This region offers a range of nature destinations of astonishing diversity; From the valleys of the Durance and Guil to the slopes of Risoul and Vars, through the heart of Val d'Escreins, classified as a nature reserve and integrated into the Queyras Nature Park, the Guillestrois mountains are a wonderful cocktail of sweetness and rudeness. At their feet, the villages of St-Crépin, Guillestre and Mont-Dauphin with its stronghold built by Vauban at the end of the 17 th century, an architectural jewel, now classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are superb places of discovery .

The Pays des Ecrins is located in the north-east, straddling the Durance and entering the Ecrins National Park by the Vallouise, the Fournel valley and the Freissinières valley. It also includes the territories of Argentière La Bessée, Champcella, Pelvoux, Puy Saint Vincent, La Roche de Rame, Cold Wing etc ... The breathtaking landscapes are very varied and offer beautiful hikes in the forests, pastures, torrents, waterfalls, lakes, to discover treasures of beauty, animals in freedom (chamois, ibex, marmots, deer, raptors ...). A wide variety of flowers and plants make nature a wonderful garden.

The Queyras is protected by the vertiginous moat of the Gorges du Guil, the fascinating Fort Queyras of the 13th century perched on its rock, dominated by a Latin giant, Mount Viso (3841 m) which extends its protective shade to the highest villages of the Queyras which are also the highest in Europe. It is also said of Saint-Veran, perched at 2042 m, that it is "the country where roosters peck the stars and" the highest commune where we eat the bread of God ". The territory of Queyras is a real secret garden, home to magnificent valleys flooded with light and bathed in authenticity where nature is of exceptional richness, beautiful, generous, crisscrossed with impetuous torrents and source of endless wonder!

At 1000 m, the situation of the cottage offers many advantages, close to all amenities, with a very pleasant climate, enjoying a beautiful sunshine.

The range of activities to be practiced nearby is considerable:

Paradise for hiking or mountain biking, from the simple family walk to the most sporting hikes; White water sports par excellence with the Guil and the Durance (rafting, canyoning, river descents that have also been adapted to children to make them dream!) ; climbing, via ferrata, paragliding, etc ...

The Guillestrois is also an exceptional and renowned mountain flying site, among the most beautiful in France. Thanks to exceptional aerological conditions, you can hover in the air and fly over the most beautiful summits of the Alps!

Some ideas for walks close to the chalet (3 to 5 minutes):

- The small medieval village of Saint-Crépin with its forest of thuriferous junipers (extraordinary point of view on the valley and the Durance);

- the adorable little lake of Saint-Crépin, isolated from the roads, which transforms itself into a summer season into a real leisure center with a play area for children, wooden tables and benches;

- the Mont-Dauphin marmot trail at the foot of the Place Forte where you can admire the panoramic view, which will amaze young and old (the marmots live in freedom and just sit in front of their burrows to see them appear !) ;

- the legendary petrifying fountain of Réotier, heritage treasure and geological curiosity to see absolutely.

- the fish farm in a beautiful shady setting where you can fish or buy your trout before grilling the barbecue of the cottage in summer;

- the hot springs with the beneficial properties of the Phasy Plan;

- the mysterious descent of the rue des Masques on the heights of Guillestre and its splendid waterfall!

- The water of Eygliers for the joys of the bathing and its base of leisures with water activities, park accrobranche, park for children, horsemanship, rides in pony, sport course, etc ...

Not far from there, at 30 minutes, the lake of Serre-Ponçon will offer you its natural wealth, its numerous aquatic activities and its magnificent Animal Park;

At 45 minutes you can also enjoy the delights of a naturally warm water at the Grands Bains de Monêtier (documentation on www.grandsbains.fr);

At 25 minutes, the beautiful fortified town of Briançon (the highest town in France) with the "Vauban city" or "gargoyle" is a popular place for a walk, steeped in history.

In winter, the geographical location at the crossroads of several ski resorts make the stay very attractive: Vars, Risoul, Puy Saint Vincent, 20 minutes; Serre-Chevalier 35 minutes and the family resorts of Queyras (Ceillac, Arvieux, Molines, Abriès).

You can choose between downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or superb winter walks.

You will enjoy the charm, sweetness and tranquility of the cottage at the end of a day in the resort or on walks.

Free shuttles from Guillestre or Mont-Dauphin station.

You will be captivated by this beautiful region that will delight lovers of sport, nature, local cuisine, geology, archeology and history and you will feel a deep sense of freedom through the mountains, fresh air, water, life. ..!

Note that in February 2015, the restaurant 'Les Tables de Gaspard' in Saint-Crépin receives a star in the Michelin guide.

Well equipped warm comfortable chalet

  • 5 of 5

This chalet is in a very quiet location in the middle of the valley !2 miles south of Briancon , its a great location for traveling around the Alps , which we did on our motorcycles.

Don't let the airfoils put you off you look over it, its for gliders and we never heard a thing the week we were there.

Muriel and Richard were very helpful with the booking despite the language barrier.

Great holiday chalet in a nice location

Nous vous remercions très sincèrement pour tous ces échanges et votre confiance. Au plaisir de quelques nouvelles de votre beau pays et du magnifique endroit où vous résidez !

US Renters

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes travelers from the US are hesitant to rent places in a foreign country because there are too many unknowns. US vacationers can rent this beautiful chalet with confidence-all the information listed is accurate and the setting is beautiful! There are many activities to do in all of the seasons within a short scenery packed drive. This is a chalet that is easy to prepare meals in (complete with a wood fire grill) and most importantly, dining outside is relaxing whether you are on the protected porch or on the lawn. If you want the feel of being in the Alps without having the crowds, busyness or being surrounded by multi-level condos, this is the place. The owners are very responsive and despite the language barrier all our questions were answered. What we enjoyed most was the peace and tranquility the location offered. We hope others enjoy it too!

Encore un magnifique séjour !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avions déjà découvert ce joli chalet et sommes ravis d’avoir choisi d’y retourner cette année. La neige était au rendez vous et nous a apporté un complément parfait ! L’endroit est toujours aussi propre et bien tenu, et décoré avec goût. Un moment idéal, hors du temps dans le calme absolu. Dépaysement total !

Séjour du 3 au 10 février 2018

Un chalet raffiné propice à la détente

Chalet très confortable où il ne manque absolument rien, en électroménager, Tv dans chaque pièce, disponibilités (super pratique ) de l'abri de jardin et des petites attentions très appréciables pour lesquelles nous remercions chaleureusement les propriétaires, nous connaissons déjà le chalet pour lequel nous avions eu la première fois un véritable coup de coeur, tant pour la décoration raffinée que pour son environnement au splendide panorama.

Nous avions apprécié la facilité d'accès en voiture et la tranquillité du lieu au milieu des arbres, loin de la route avec une proximité cependant de toutes les commodités et au coeur d'une région splendide entre les Écrins et le Queyras. Très proche de surcroît des stations de Vars et Risouls. Le camp de base idéal pour de formidables vacances !

A recommander vivement.

Un écrin au cœur de la nature !

  • 5 of 5

Séjour merveilleux dans un cadre de rêve…

Rien ne manquait dans ce joli chalet de famille à l’atmosphère douce et feutrée « ambiance montagne » où tout est prévu pour vous apporter un confort optimal.

Le barbecue couvert est la cerise sur le gâteau !

Cette période « avant hiver » nous a offert de sublimes tableaux naturels aux sommets enneigés, baignés de la lumière des Alpes du sud.

La région offre un riche patrimoine culturel et historique en plus de ses paysages tous plus beaux les uns que les autres !

Un immense merci pour les attentions de bienvenue, pour tous les messages extrêmement chaleureux et sympathiques des propriétaires ainsi que de leur suivi depuis le début de nos échanges jusqu’après notre séjour.

Nous reviendrons le plus vite possible !
