On the second floor there are the two bedrooms; Bedroom One has a double and a single, and Bedroom Two has two singles.
The private enclosed garden, complete with barbecue and bench, lies directly underneath the apartment, providing shade in the summer and a great play area for children in winter. By the entrance door to the apartment there is a convenient breakfast balcony that catches the early morning sunshine with ample space below for canoes and outdoor equipment.

The apartment is ideal if you want the convenience of day-to-day necessities such as shops and restaurants combined with close proximity to the mountains and valleys of the Hautes Alpes; from the doorstep you can mountain bike, walk or kayak on the River Gyr. In winter the X-C ski trails are a 3 minute walk away. The apartment also gives you easy access to the village square, the beautiful 15th Century Church and the weekly village market for which the historic village of Vallouise is famous for.

The apartment comes complete with lots of local information about what's on offer including free loan of maps and guidebooks. We can also arrange guided mountain courses for you run by the best IFMGA guides in the Hautes Alpes!

LARGE GROUPS OR FAMILIES
If you have a large group you can rent both Apartment Mélèze and the attached but independent Chalet Chabrand providing accommodation for up to 15 people. Email us for details.

Location description from owner

The Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur region

AlpBase is situated in Vallouise, the gateway to the Ecrins National Park and the centre of the Hautes Alpes; one of the least populated and most pristine areas in France. This region of the country - 05 - comprises the Southern French Alps and is one of the few alpine areas in Europe that has always controlled its tourism. As well as substantially better weather – a guaranteed 300 days of sunshine every year - this area is definitely a lot less commercialised than the Northern French Alps.
The Hautes Alpes offers the widest range of outdoor activities anywhere in Europe year round. Go to the Activities section and you will see what we mean!
This is the village where AlpBase is centred. Vallouise is a small mountain village with a population of only 650. Vallouise is situated at the junction of 3 valleys, on a plateau at 1,100m with stunning alpine scenery all around. In summer there is mountain biking and hiking from the doorstep, and in winter snowshoeing and x-country skiing. The village has 6 restaurants, 2 bars, two small supermarkets, a number of stationeries and gift shops, three outdoor equipment and ski hire shops, a pharmacy, and of course the weekly market.

Vallouise

The Massif des Écrins is one of the most spectacular mountain regions in the whole of the European Alps. Most of the area is a national park, with summits over 3000m high. The area is simply huge - the national park is the largest in France, covering an area of 92,000 hectares (227,332 acres), with a peripheral zone nearly twice that size. In simple terms it is 30 times bigger than the Chamonix Valley - and criss crossed by well over 1000Km's of well-marked trails. The vast majority of which are accessible from AlpBase. Hung about with glaciers, more than 100 peaks rise to well over 3000m and hence the reason why this area is referred to as the Hautes Alpes (High Alps) because it comprises the largest concentration of big mountain peaks in France; the Barre des Écrins, the highest mountain in the area and which gives its name to the area, is 4102m.
The Ecrins National Park has abundant wildlife. Look out for eagles, chamois, Ibex, willow grouse, marmots, black grouse, ptarmigan, blanchons, and even stoats….in all 167 rare and valuable species. The flora is equally diverse – 1,800 varieties with 387 rare species. Away from the traditional lavender fields of Provence you might find blue thistles, lilies and purple gentians and high altitude plants such as androsace, saxifrage, silene and edelweiss.
THE ECRINS VALLEYS
The six valley bases which make up this area include the following:
Vallée de la Romanche, Vallée de la Guisane, Vallée de la Vallouise, Valgaudemar, Valjouffrey and Vallée du Vénéon.
LA VALLOUISE
There are two main centers in our valley. The first is the village of Vallouise where are based, and the second is Ailefroide; France's second centre of Alpinism after Chamonix. At the head of the Vallouise Valley there's a broad open plain known as the Pré de Madame Carle. The rubble-strewn Glacier Noir drains down towards it from the west, but above big glacial slabs in the north the tumbling Glacier Blanc gleams in the sunlight. Both entice with prospects of exciting alpine walks among the highest of the high peaks. If you walk around the Ailefroide end of the valley the trails tend to be steeper and longer, whist down at the Vallouise end the trails tend to be flatter
Vallouise has 6 local restaurants, two supermarkets, a pharmacy, a cash point, and some great accommodation for visitors!!
