Chamoissiere and the Tour de France 2017.

It was announced yesterday that the Hautes-Alpes is right back on the cycling map and will feature in 3 stages of the Tour de France 2017. There will be a great atmosphere in Serre Chevalier with Stage 17 finishing in Serre Chevalier on July 19th, and stage 18 starting from Briancon on July 20th with a tough finish at the top of the Col d’Izoard.

Spring in the Mountains

With the ski season drawing to a close, spring has arrived. Why not enjoy a weekend or longer stay in the mountains and enjoy the clear air and lengthening days?

Rafting on the river.

The melting snow gives great white water for kayaking and rafting. Days are cooler than in midsummer for walking.

The pool and sauna will be open at weekends and French public holidays, then daily from mid-June.

10 things our guests have said about Chalet Chamoissiere.

  1. This was the best ski trip I have had in ages. Fantastically well equipped and managed apt. Amazing communal facilities and great location. Had to dig the car out – so shovel was v. handy! Loved it. thanks….
  2. Extremely comfortable for the two of us, with everything we needed, convenient for the lifts and wonderful extras like the pool and haman.
  3. What a fabulous, cosy, well equipped, secure, luxurious, perfectly-located holiday apartment. Spa facilities superb too! Thank you and we’ll be back!
  4. I cant fault anything, the location was superb for the ski lifts.The apartment was the best that we have stayed in on a ski holiday.
  5. The smallest thing had been thought of from all the kitchen equipment to the herbs and fresh coffee in the fridge.
  6. The ingenious layout and high level of equipment makes this place more than adequate for a family of four.We have always been very warmly greeted and have always found the apartment to be spotlessly clean and well maintained.
  7. Our endearing and enduring memory of staying at La Chamoissiere was the incredible 360 degree view of the mountains we had just walked as we relaxed in the pool.
  8. We have just returned from a fabulous trip. The conditions were excellent, and the apartment surpassed expectations. It was only a stones throw from the slopes, so we were able to come home for a leisurely lunch each day.
  9. A fantastic apartment, spacious and very well equipped. Lots of storage space and a wonderful pool and sauna. Well sited for the lifts in Monetier, which is a delightful village
  10. We were thrilled to be able to swim outside under the stars, surrounded by mountains. Snow conditions excellent. We can’t wait to go back. Many thanks for everything.

DIY and Medieval Festivals

Having spent most of yesterday doing all those little jobs you have to do, we decided to head down to Briancon this morning where there was a medieval festival . All sorts of crafts, armoury, and shenanigans going on.
Above, a family of plague victims were enjoying a drink (I heard rumours they were the local gendarmes but not sure of that one), while we ate our lunch in the Spirit bar opposite the church. Silversmiths were demonstrating their wares, and a large number of horsemen and women were enjoying the atmosphere, although their horses did not seem to be enjoying it too much.
A great day out, with loads to do for all the family as they say.
