La Vieille Ecurie

La Vieille Ecurie

The most amazing holiday awaits you in Valbonnais

Welcome to “La Vieille Ecurie” gite in the pretty village of Valbonnais, situated at the perimetre of the Parc National des Ecrins in Isère, in the Auvergne Rhone Alpes region. The gîte was registered in 2008 as a Gite Rural with Gîtes de France with a classification of 3 Epis and in 2013 was classified with 4****.

The Gite

Our gite is newly renovated and tastefully furnished and decorated in keeping with the area and is attached to our house but all accommodation and outside amenities are separate but of course we will be on hand for any assistance and information you might need.

Valbonnais is in a sheltered valley at the entrance to the Parc National des Ecrins and 13 km from the N85, Route de Napoleon at La Mure (nearest town). As the gite is close to the mountains it is, therefore, ideally situated for walking, cycling and reaching the ski resorts within a short journey. If your stay in our gîte is in winter your nearest ski resorts are Col d’Ornon (20 mins), a small authentic ski resort, L’Alpe du Grand Serre (30 mins) a larger family resort and further afield the well-known resorts of Alpe d’Huez and Les Deux Alpes with the lesser known resort of Super Devoluy further south in the Hautes-Alpes.
