Welcome to the Hautes-Alpes and 300 days of sunshine per year...
- english, french, spanish
We live in a part of France that is simply too beautiful to keep to ourselves and so we have converted the upper level of our house into a spacious holiday apartment, perfect for families and groups pf friends alike. The views are truly breathtaking! We speak English, French and Spanish. We can help with ski and cycle hire and we can direct you to good walking and mountain bike trails, good lakeside beaches, historical sites and villages/towns of interest - and of course to the best restaurants!
Mary purchased this Apartment in 2013
What makes this Apartment unique
The views from the house are truly stunning and are the reason we decided to go ahead and buy in this beautiful part of France. All our visitors comment on how instantly relaxed they feel once they arrive. Sitting on the terrace with a drink - be it a mug of tea or a glass of Côtes de Rhone - in hand, it is easy to lose oneself in the beauty of the area. The mountain air, the uninterrupted views towards the lake, and the mountain panorama make for endless hours of sitting and relaxation. For the more adventurous there are plenty of activities on offer; walking, mountain biking and cycling trails lead straight from the front door! There is white water rafting and kayaking on offer on the Durance and Ubaye rivers, both of which feed into the lake - Lac Serre Ponçon. In summer months the lake is a hive of activity with all water sports on offer - or pleasure boat excursions for the less adventurous. Swimming in the fresh water of the lake is always a pleasure. There are nearby towns and villages to explore - many with their local 'fete' in the summer months - as well as flea markets, 'braderie' and car boot ('vide grenier') sales where one can pick up items at good prices.

Une des plus belle vue des Hautes-Alpes
A 1100 m d’altitude dans un cadre idyllique, la maison de Mary offre une vue exceptionnelle sur les montagnes et le lac de Serre-Ponçon. Assurément une des plus jolie vue du département. Au pied des Aiguilles de Chabrieres, à l’entrée du col de la Gardette, vous serez face au pic du Grand Morgon. La maison dispose de tous le confort, décoration soignée et propreté irréprochable. Elle est également idéalement située entre nature et commodités proches (a 5min de Chorges et 25min de Gap).
Mary et Simon sont des hôtes adorables.
Bref nous espérons revenir très prochainement :)
Merci beaucoup pour votre appréciation. Nous aussi nous ne pouvons que vous remercier pour tout et votre gentillesse. C'est avec un grand plaisir que nous vous reçevrons à nouveau..... :)
The best holiday home we have ever stayed in!
We had a fantastic week in this beautiful part of France. The apartment is spacious and very well equipped (with fabulous views) and Mary was extremely helpful with everything.
The skiing at Reallon was good - it's a small resort with friendly people so perfect for us as a family. Not too expensive either!
We would love to come back in the summer so that we can enjoy the lake and all the water sports, as well as the summer hiking.
Merci Mary! À bientôt !
Thank you, Mary, for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this beautiful region of France and that you felt it was well worth the effort of getting here!
We do hope the snow did not make your journey back to the UK too arduous!
A great place for a family holiday
This is the second time I have come with my family to Gite Chez Mary. We discovered this part of France in 2016 and fell in love with the area so I imagine we'll be back again soon. Last time we flew to Marseille and hired a car but this time we drove. It took us all day but it's definitely worth it!
The apartment is spotlessly clean and has everything you need - we love the pellet burner in winter, especially after a day's skiing! This year there wasn't so much snow (we skied in the mornings only) but that wasn't a problem as we went hiking and exploring too. Although we didn't have the snow we had fabulous blue skies and lots of sunshine - just the tonic we needed.
Thanks Mary for another great stay!
Thanks for the lovely review. I'm so glad that you think the journey from the UK to get here is worth it and I look forward to welcoming you and the family again soon.
