Apartment overview - owner's description

The apartment (110m2) for 6 people is on the upper floor of what was originally a working sheep farm. It consists of one large light and airy open-plan living/dining/kitchen area, three bedrooms, a large bathroom and a separate toilet. The outside space is a balcony (4.55m2) leading from the living room and, at the bottom of the wooden stairs that lead to the apartment, a large covered wooden terrace (55m2) exclusively for guests' use; a perfect spot for lazing on the garden furniture, dining 'al fresco' and simply looking at the breathtaking views! For the more energetic there is a table tennis table - popular with young and old alike!

The living area has two large comfy sofas, either side of a central coffee table, and large french doors leading onto the balcony. There is a flat screen 32 inch HD television and unlimited internet access, as well as a variety of games.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has a fridge freezer, dishwasher, electric fan oven and induction hob, microwave oven, toaster, electric hand mixer, liquidiser, coffee machine and kettle. The oak dining table comfortably seats six people (an extra chair is available if you are seven). High chairs are available on request.

Bedroom 1 has a standard double bed (140 x 190cm). Bedrooms 2 and 3 each have two single beds (90 x 190cm) which can be joined together to create large king size beds (180 x 190cm) if required. If there are 7 in your group, there is the possibility of putting an additional single bed into one of the bedrooms and we can provide cots for babies on request. All bed linen, tea towels and bath towels are included, and you will find all the beds made up when you arrive.

The spacious, modern bathroom offers a large walk-in shower, twin wash basins, a heated towel rail and a double-ended bath tub that is just perfect for soaking 'à deux'! Also in the bathroom you will find a laundry corner neatly housing a washing machine and tumble dryer. There is a separate toilet (a true 'loo with a view'!) and hand wash basin.

Heating is by means of a wood pellet burner (pellets provided) and electric radiators.

There is covered parking for two cars and we have plenty of secure storage space for bikes and skis, etc.

The summer months offer markets, live music in the streets and swimming and water sports at the Lac de Serre Ponçon (10 mins). In winter you have a choice of ski resorts in close proximity. Our personal favourite is the family-friendly resort of Réallon (20 mins) though if you are looking for something more extensive then we recommend Les Orres at 40 mins away, Vars/Risoul at 55 mins or Serre Chevalier at 60 mins. There is also good cross-country skiing nearby.

Throughout the year there are villages to explore, good food to eat and great walking/cycling/mountain biking, with trails direct from the front door. For the more adventurous there is white water rafting and kayaking on the Durance river, as well as paragliding and climbing.

A three-course supper with wine can be provided on the day of arrival at a cost of 20€ per person. We can also do a shop for you before your arrival - we will charge you the cost of the provisions plus a 5€ service fee.

We are on hand and happy to assist as required. We access our living space from the other side of the house and so your privacy is guaranteed. We speak English, French and Spanish - and a little Italian!

Getting here:
By Car

If you are driving out from the UK you can take the AutoRoute all the way to Grenoble from most of the coastal ports. From Grenoble you have two choices; the N85, Route de Napoléon, which winds across the mountains to Gap, or take the A51 and then the N75 south from Grenoble (along the edge of the Vercours in the direction of Sisteron) to Aspres-sur-Buech, then the D994 east to Gap.

By Plane
Marseille is the closest airport. When hiring a car, take the A51 motorway north towards Gap. After the end of the motorway, just south of Gap, follow directions to Tallard and after Tallard take the D942 north to join the N94. Turn east, direction Briançon to Chorges. 

Other airport options are Avignon (2h 16m), Grenoble (2h 20m), Nimes (2h 37m), Chambery (2h 37m), Turin (2h 45m), Toulon-Hyeres (2h 51m), Lyon-Saint Exupery (2h 52m), Nice (3h) and Geneva (3h 30m).

It is also possible to fly into Grenoble with Easy Jet or Ryan Air, or Lyon with scheduled or budget airlines.  If you fly into Nice it is faster to drive along the coastal motorway then north up the A 51 rather than taking the ‘short cut’ across the mountains.

By Train
For overnight travel, take the London to Paris Eurostar train, arriving at the Gare du Nord station. Transfer by Metro to the Gare Austerlitz station (about 20 min.)
Take the night train to Gap or Chorges (marked as the Briançon train) departing approx 22:00 and arriving at about 07:00 next morning.

Eurostar also now offer a service from London to Aix en Provence or Marseille, you will need to hire a car from either of these destinations.

Alternatively for daytime travel take the TGV from Paris or Lille to Valence and then a local train to Gap or Chorges. In Gap, you can hire a car from several agents located 100 metres from the train station.

Private Owner From Chorges, France Member since Mar 2018

We bought our house in 2012 and have spent the last few years developing it into a holiday rental business. We then moved here full-time in June 2018. This part of the Hautes-Alpes is little-known with UK visitors - perhaps it is considered too far to travel - but those who do make the journey soon realise that it is well worth it as the beauty of the area is stunning.

We are fortunate to benefit from a mediterranean climate - we have hot summers (though never too hot) and cold winters. That said, in winter we more often than not have bright blue skies and sunny days. Our house faces due south and soaks up the sunshine.
