Location description from owner

The Provence region

The Provence-Alps-Côte d'Azur region is ideally situated between the Mediterranean coastline and the Alps. Its location and climate are extremely attractive. Extraordinary scenery combined with a rich historical past of exceptional archaeological and architectural interest, together with a multitude of celebrations and festivals, make it an exciting area to visit. Haute-Alpes is the most northern part of the region incorporating the southern Alps with some of the highest mountain ranges, hence its name. The region benefits from a Mediterranean climate, with 300 days of sunshine a year on average, with a contrasting and enviable snow record, and some of the best skiing in Europe without the crowds, or prices of the northern resorts.

The chalet is located between L'Argentière-la-Bessée and Les Vigneaux between the Durance and Gironde rivers, with easy access to the top rated family ski resort of Puy St Vincent, the famous skiing of Serre Chevalier with 250km of pistes, and extensive Ski du Fond tracks along the Vallouise valley.Puy St Vincent is a 7 minute drive from the chalet, with easy parking right on the slopes, whilst the Serre Chevalier lifts can be reached in around 12 minutes. The small 'secret' resort of Pelvoux is at the end of the Valley, also just 12 minutes away and is perfect for beginners with free nursery runs, and also with parking right by the slopes, so no walking with skis!Also within easy reach are the resorts of Montgenèvre, Claviere & Sestriere in the Italian Milky Way, Risoul / Var, and La Grave. A weeks adult ski pass at Puy St Vincent is just €150 and gives you a day in each of the above resorts, plus a day in Alpe d'Huez and Les 2 Alpes! - The best value skiing around!

All the local ski resorts have English and English speaking ski instructors, creche facilities, and a wide choice of ski hire outlets (right on the slopes). Discounted ski hire deals are provided.

Off the slopes you will find dedicated Toboggan and Sledging areas at Puy St Vincent and Pelvoux and free ice skating, whilst Briançon offers indoor ice skating in the ice hockey arena used by the famous 'Diables Rouges' team. The sports centre here also has a great swimming pool centre with slides, or for a more relaxing apres-ski soak try the renowned baths and spa at 'Les Grands Bains du Monêtier' in Serre Chevalier.For a little more adventure the comprehensive guide book at the chalet has all the details for skidoo hire, ski parapente, husky rides, ice climbing and even ice driving!

Puy-Saint-Vincent

Puy St Vincent is virtually unknown to the British skier, even through the English Alpine Championships are often held here. We think they are trying to keep it a secret! Its smaller size means uncrowded pistes, no queues, parking right by the pistes (which our visitors frequently report is much easier than being in resort and having to walk even 100m with skis!) and with lift pass prices half that of the large resorts, offers great value for money with no compromise on the quality of skiing, in addition to having an envied snow record and unrivalled provincial sunshine! Puy St Vincent is great place to learn, and has built a reputation as one of the best family resorts around, but also offers some of the most challenging black runs and off piste, in addition to long tree-lined sweeping greens and blues, and a large variety of challenging reds, that see visitors return year after year. Most skiers spend the whole week here, but Puy has another surprise.

A six day ski pass in Puy unbelievably also gives you a free days skiing in 7 other nearby resorts including the vast Serre Chevalier, Montgenèvre, Claviere, Sestriere & Sauze d'Oulx in the Italian Milky Way, Pelvoux, La Grave, Alpe d'Huez and Les 2 Alpes!

Chalet les Vigneaux is perfectly located whether you are looking for a family holiday in a quiet resort, or a full on ski tour of the biggest and best French resorts.

In the summer the area offers every alpine adventure possible!

Via Ferrata - The nearest Via Ferrata is visible from the property and just a few hundred metres away where there is also a zip line across the Durance gorge.

Climbing - Some of the most popular and famous climbing areas such as Ailefroide and Freissinières are just a few km's away.Rafting and

Kayaking - The chalet is just above the point where the Durance and Gyronde rivers meet, and only a kilometre from L'Argentière la Bessée where the European Championships are held.

Canyoning - Fournel, Tramouillon, Eychauda & Pra Reboul Canyon's all within a few km's.

Mountain Biking / VTT - Tracks and parks throughout the Vallouise valley for professionals and children alike.

Road Biking - The chalet is often passed by Le Tour de France! (see below for details for 2014 route)The Hautes-Alpes department offers the most incredible selection of road biking for the real enthusiast. This area has many of the most celebrated climbs and descents in road biking history.

Family Activities - Adventure Parcs, Horse Riding, Paragliding, Quad Biking, Summer Tobboggan, Lakes with beaches and pedalos, Indoor and outdoor swimming pools with slides, and even year round Ice Skating. No one gets bored here!

The small town of L'Argentiere la Bessée is less than 1km from the chalet with supermarkets, bars, and restuarants and everything needed for a weeks holiday.Briançon, the highest (and 300 days a year!) sunniest town in Europe is just over 10 mins away with large supermarkets, casino, a beautiful Unesco Heritage old town, and an abundance of restuarants from simple mountain fayre to Michelin star establishments, full details of which are provided in our comprehensive guide book.
