Isere – a tunnel into the Alps

The department of Isere rises from the outskirts of Lyon to the high tip of Pic Lory. It covers a huge part of the French Alps. At its heart, marking the start of the mountains in earnest, is the city of Grenoble, a buzzing place that's topped by the Bastille, a mighty, mountainside fortress, and a museum about the French Revolution. Delve deeper into the region and you soon hit world-famous ski resorts. The dangling gondolas of Alpe d'Huez, Les Deux Alpes and Chamrousse are all there, home to ski-in, ski-out Isere vacation rentals. In summer, they become an adventure hub.

Isere is for mountain folk

While almost half the department of Isere is taken up by flatter lands, south of Lyon, the rest is the domain of some of France's highest peaks. The highest in Isere is Pic Lory, at 4,087 meters. It's part of the Massif des Ecrins – the highest peak in that range is the stone-spiked Barre des Ecrins, at 4,102 meters, in the adjacent apartment of Hautes-Alpes. They are all part of the vast Ecrins National Park. Get ready for mountain adventures of all sorts. Isere vacation rentals in Alpe d'Huez will have you whizzing down the snowy slopes, while others will see you scrambling on sections of via ferrata. Still others are a ticket to whitewater rafting, kayaking or wild camping.

An eye on history in Isere

Isere might be a pop-up book of carved peaks and ski fields, but it's still got oodles of history and culture. You might want to bag yourself an Isere vacation rental in Grenoble, for that. It's hailed as the "Capital of the Alps" and comes with panoramic cable car rides that reveal a great Bastille and WWII memorials on the mountaintops – there's even a view of Mont Blanc. Below, is the Museum of French Revolution, telling tales of France's hard-fought wars, the demise of its monarchy and the birth of the French Republic.

An irresistible 4 seasons in Isere

Winter is an obvious favorite – December to April is high time for skiing, when ski-in, ski-out Isere vacation rentals in Huez and Chamrousse are the most popular picks of all. Then comes spring. The snowline recedes in April and May, bringing blooming wildflowers to the Alps and opening up the trails – it's a great time to strap on the hiking boots. So is summer, even if it's hotter, with temperatures regularly creeping into the high 70s between June and August. Fall is cooler again and usually perfect for hitting Grenoble's big sights without the crowds.

Isere is an Alpine jewel

The region of Isere starts on the outskirts of Lyon, rolling across plains where the Bourbre River and others wiggle across farms and woodlands. Then the great wall of the French Alps begins. Grenoble is hidden behind a duo of gorgeous natural parks – Chartreuse and Vercors – ribbed with high cliffs and standalone peaks. Beyond them are the breathtaking mountaintops of the Ecrins National Park. They host cascading glaciers and deep glacial valleys, topping out at the Barre des Ecrins. Hiking paths abound within, passing Alpine lakes and forests of firs, a domain of chamois and wolves and more.
