Luxury villa with private heated pool, sauna, panoramic views of the beautiful lake Lac de Serre Ponçon and close to the ski resort of Les Orres and the charming town of Embrun (10 km). An ideal winter and summer destination! This villa is situated at an altitude of 1000 meters on the south side of the French Alps and is with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year a great holiday destination. The lake Lac de Serre Ponçon is a fantastic recreational lake for swimming, surfing, canoeing, sailing and even fishing. The lake is fed by two mountain rivers: the Durance and the Ubaye. Both rivers are suitable for typical summer sports such as rafting, white water kayaking, canyoning and hydrospeeding.
Only 8 km away you will find a small ski area in Reallon, which is ideal for families with small children, where they can have their first skiing experiences. With about 25 minutes' drive you are in the large skiing area 'Les Orres' with about 88 km of pistes and 40 km of cross-country trails. There are many red and blue pistes so this destination is also highly recommended for families. The black pistes there are also real black pistes.
The air here is wonderfully clean and dry as the area is 'protected' by the Parc National des Ecrins; one of the largest and most beautiful natural parks in the French Alps. The climate is pleasant for people with lung problems. In the park you can go hiking on different levels in summer and the experienced cyclists will enjoy the presence of cols such as Le Galibier and l'Alpe d'Huez. You'll find peace and quiet here, in whatever form : walking in the beautiful mountains, braving the mountains by bike, surfing on the lake or just enjoying the swimming pool and/or sauna. Something for everyone! Don't forget to visit the pretty town of Embrun with its lovely terraces, pretty streets and beautiful views.
