Climbing details

The area boosts 300 days of sunshine, so it is rare to loose a day's sport.

Winter - the area has superb winter climbing and ice climbing venues, 6 ski resorts within 50 min drive of the apartment & nordic ski-ing is also on offer.

Spring - allows for excellent high level off piste alpine ski-ing itinaries, and as the days warm up the lower level crags are usually empty and waiting!

Summer - Alpine climbing in the Ecrins National Park. Barre des Ecrins (4000m) is approached from the head of the valley. Numerous rock climbing venues ranging from single pitch limestone sports climbs through to multi-pitch routes on the unique granite of Alifroide.

Autumn - the area is quiet and you can have the crags to yourself. September is a good time to explore the area.
