La Montagne is a 18 hectare manor, situated at a height of 4200 ft. in the southern French Alps, 15 km's from the small city of Gap.
On the manor you'll find two beautiful apartments and a cozy chalet + the house we permanently live in ourselves.
Within minutes of our property you can go for a swim
or a stroll,
while the more energetic (?) holiday makers can engage in mountain
biking, skiing, hang gliding, parachuting etc.
Because of the geographical location of La Montagne, at the south side of the Alps and close to the Provence, our summers are agreeable but not too warm, and during the evening the temperature drops to a nice level.
Humidity stays very low here.
La Montagne is a splendid starting point for day
trips to well
known French tourist areas, such as the Ardèche, Provence,
Côte d’Azur, Cevennes and Hautes Alpes.
An easy 15 minute drive takes you to Gap, a small town where you can go shopping and where the many cozy restaurants will tempt you to discover and enjoy our regional foods and drinks.
If you are looking for splendid views, fascinating
nature, pure mountain air, absolute peace and quiet, a lovely climate
with loads of sunshine throughout the year and mountains of snow in
winter, it will be difficult to find a better place than La Montagne.
And if your French is (still?) not what you think it should be, we will solve any practical problems you might have.
We would like to welcome you here and we will make any effort to make your stay with us unforgettable and to let you feel "at home away from home".
