  • Liked: 

    Nice area, friendly and welcoming hosts who spoke English, swimming pool clean and well kept, fresh bread delivered by local baker on a daily basis

    Disliked: 

    Allocated pitch was among apple trees which was nice, but rotten apples which had fallen onto pitch had to be cleared away by us before we could pitch tents, and ground quite hard and lumpy. Wifi very poor , unable to connect to the web all 3 days we were there but apart from that all good.

Directions


Local attractions

Discover the Ecrins National Park, a protected area of mountain peaks, meadows, mirror lakes and beautiful scenery in the heart of the French Alps. Ecrins encloses more than 100 mountain peaks reaching over 3,000 metres in altitude. Barre des Ecrins goes up to 4,102 metres. It is also well known for the number of glaciers.

Go hiking in the many natural reserves within the borders of the park such as Pics du Combeynot, Vallée du Béranger, Vallée de Saint-Pierre, Vallée de la Séveraisse, and Vallée du Vénéon.

Visit the village of La Grave, a small, lovely village, and take a trip to the highest city in Europe, Briancon, that falls at the end of several important valleys through the mountains, an excellent former point of defence and trade.

Enter the town through the large stone gateway called the Porte de Pignerol and stroll along the Grande Rue and the streets around, also full of bars, cafés and restaurants.

Visit the beautiful Abbey Church of Notre Dame and Saint Nicholas, with several small chapels.
