Alpes du Sud
When the Alps meet Provence...
The Southern Alps are known as the “mountains by the sea” and a stay at Serre-Ponçon in the Hautes-Alpes will easily convince you of this.
Bathed by the sun, this region offers a fascinating variety of landscapes and climates. The larch tree reigns but the footpaths, with their smell of thyme and lavender, give the forests a feeling of Mediterranean pine woods.
The region of Briançon offers a full range of recreational activities associated with the high-mountains; mountaineering in the summer and skiing in the winter. Not far away, La Grave-la Meije is internationally renowned for off-piste skiing. Down towards Embrun, whitewater enthusiasts can enjoy rafting and kayaking.
The Southern Alps are above all wonderfully un-spoilt and naturally wild. They offer the unique opportunity to discover an authentic environment.
