Tout simplement parfait!

  • 5 of 5

Un chalet très convivial parfaitement équipé (cuisine, chauffage performant, jeux, etc.) et adapté aux grands groupes avec de nombreuses chambres confortables et de grands espaces communs. Une magnifique cheminée autour de laquelle il fait bon se retrouver après une journée passée dans les belles montagnes autour de Vars. Des propriétaires très sympathiques et qui connaissent la région depuis de très nombreuses années.

The village of Vars is close to the Queyras regional park and the same part of the city, is on the reserve of the Val d'Escreins. Vars is at the heart of the Alps, particularly in an area known for its gastronomy: Indeed, cheeses and sausages, local specialties, will delight your taste buds!

For ski enthusiasts, is Vars, Risoul with the field of the White Forest: It has 180 kilometers of runs over 100 slopes between 1650 m and 2780 m altitude.

For sports enthusiasts, everything is done in Vars to make you feel at home: during ESF / ESI ski / snowboard / Telemark, 3 different snow parks (total one of Europe's largest freestyle spaces), as well as 'countless hiking on skis or snowshoes!

In summer, the chalet is the perfect starting place for exploring the surrounding mountains. Difficult to make an exhaustive list of all possible walks, but here our favorite 2 (http:.. Vars // www com / summer / en / vars-plan-rando asp.):

Advanced Pastourlet: a classic of the family, so do not take the car .... From the chalet follow the path that runs behind the sawmill. After the pass, go down the other side to get to the lake. For the more adventurous, drive up to the pass of Mortice

Source de la Font Sancte / Val d'Escreins: 10 minutes by car (Guillestre drive, and then shown on the right) park in the car park, then up the river to its source

Of course, there are dozens more ...

Finally, the Serre Ponçon, 30 minutes by car, is a center of the region for water sports (kite, board, catamaran). For more information: http: // www. serreponcon-tourism. com / activities-nautical-lac-de-clamp poncon. html

In a privileged setting, the region remains very accessible from many major cities and even from abroad with TGV and air links from the airports of Grenoble and Marseille. Regular shuttles connect you till Vars
