About the property

South oriented chalet with 5 real bedrooms and lake and mountains view.

At an altitude of 1200 m, in Saint-Sauveur in the heart of a small typical village of the Hautes Alps with several hamlets, this recent chalet made with larch wood will take you into a mountain universe thanks to its neat and typical decoration and its mountain furniture made with larch wood and Swiss pine. With excellent sun exposure from morning to evening, you will be able to enjoy the big covered terrace even in winter with magnificent view to the valley, the Serre- Ponçon Lake and the surrounding mountain. Away from roads, you will enjoy the absolute calmness of the big closed tree filled garden where children can play safely. In winter, you are 10 minutes away from the Orres ski resort and 20 minutes away from the family ski resort of Crevoux. You can leave directly from the chalet either to go for a walk or snow shoeing in the forest, or to discover the mountain while hiking or mountain biking through the tens of marked paths or to cross the mythical mountain pass of the Alps nearby. You are 10 minutes away from the Serre-Ponçon Lake and the Embrun Lake with its supervised beach where you can go swimming in summer. You will also be able to discover the rich not only natural but also cultural heritage (visit to the dam of Serre-Ponçon, the Cistercian Abbey of Boscodon, the cathedral of Embrun, the Fort of Vauban de Montdauphin nearby). Around 120 sq.m. On the first floor, there is a dining room and a living room with a flat screen television, an open plan kitchen with quality equipment (SIEMENS pyrolysis oven, microwave oven, Liebher freezer, Kenwood mixer, Magimix percolator…), a bathroom, separate toilets, and a bedroom with a bed of 160 cm and a television. Furniture made with larch wood and Swiss pine by a cabinetmaker from the village. South oriented terrace with a larch wood lunch table for 10 people. On the second floor, there are 4 bathrooms; 1 bed of 160 cm, 2 beds of 140 cm, 2 beds of 80 cm and a pull out bed of 80 cm. It is possible to get 2 cribs (0-4 years old). There is a bathroom and a separate toilet with a sink. There is quality linen. Underground, there is a garage of 80 sq.m for 2 cars where you can find a washing machine, a tumble dryer, a Ping-Pong table, and a WEBER barbecue.

About Jean-Pierre Marques

Young retired married woman with 2 children at the age of 25 and 27 and 2 grandchildren.

Jean-Pierre Marques purchased this chalet in 2002

Why Jean-Pierre Marques chose Queyras - Embrun region

We wanted to keep this chalet to enjoy it during low season. We visit it frequently and therefore you can take advantage of everything that you can find in the house, which is not only for rental.

What makes this chalet unique

The chalet is very comfortable and what we like the most about it is the calmness of the place, away from traffic but at the same time close to the small town of Embrun where you find shops and supermarkets. It is near the Orres ski resort although we prefer the environment in Crevoux, closer to the wild nature with beautiful cross-country skiing trails or snowshoeing.

Zonder Woorden.

  • 5 of 5

Ik schreef zonder woorden omdat de woning aan alles voldoet .Het is, zoals je de woning ziet op de beschrijving en op de foto's.Dit met een zeer mooi uitzicht op de bergen,op het meer,op het kleine dorpskerkje.

De ontvangst door de eigenaars was zeer vriendelijk en zeer familiaal.

Ze gaven ons direct een rondleiding en de nodige info over de streek.

Tevens is alles voor kleine kinderen alles in de woning aanwezig.Bij aankomst moet men ook niet direct een winkel opzoeken omdat bij aankomst een grote basis benoodigheden aanwezig is.

Tevens straalt de woning en de omgeving rust uit.

In de maand juli en augustus kan men ook genieten van het vuurwerk ,vanop het terras.dit vuurwerk gaat altijd door in Savines op woensdagavond.Zo zie je maar wat voor een uitzicht men heeft vanop het terras.

Dus voor mij is dit verblijf zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.Gr Wim

Noël en famille

  • 5 of 5

Chalet parfait pour se retrouver nombreux (nous étions 8 adultes et deux bébés). Équipement ultra complet, matériel BB y compris. Grand calme dans un petit village, vue exceptionnelle sur le lac de Serre-Ponçon. Accueil des propriétaires très sympathique et de bon conseil. La neige n'était pas au rendez-vous mais l'ensoleillement et les randos ont compensé. Séjour très réussi. Nous reviendrons sans doute.

Located in the heart of Embrunnais in a small preserved village, which is at the foot of the hiking trails for walks on the mountain. Close to Orres ski resort where in winter you can enjoy skiing and the facilities (tennis, swimming pool, downhill mountain biking…) and near the Serre-Ponçon lake where you can go for water activities in summer ( windsurfing, dinghy sailing, catamaran…). You will also enjoy the white water sports of Durance such as kayaking and rafting. It is close to the lake of Embrun with its supervised beach where you can go swimming.
