Activities

Surrounded by the famous mountains from the French cycling classics and situated at a beautiful spot at the edge of Parc les Ecrins and nearby the ski area of Les 2 Alpes makes the Hotel a perfect home base for the active outdoor holiday during all seasons. Cycling, skiing, hiking, golfing, paragliding, rafting, canyoning, Via Ferrata, mountain biking (downhill) and many other outdoor activities are within a few kilometers of the Hotel. In addition, the authentic alp village of Venosc is only 3 kilometers away. The village has many special diligence stores. Wood and leather is treated and they make their own honey, cheese and sausages. Venosc is entirely car free and worth a visit!

Next to that there are the cities of Briançon, Grenoble and Vizille, all within an hour drive of the Hotel. In short, a Walhalla for the (active) holiday maker.

The climate is also perfect for all mentioned activities. At an altitude of 850 meter and southern area, the temperatures are pleasant in the summer. During the day it can be very hot, just like on the coast in the southern France. The nights however are nice and cool. Combined with the fresh mountain air, this is perfect for a good night sleep. It also gets very clear at night which means that the starry night is an attraction in its self. The winters are known for the high amounts of snow, and many days of sunshine (300 days a year)! The road to the Hotel and ski lift are cleared of snow which means they stay accessible!
