Apt. Erable | Self Catering Apartment | Vallouise Centre
Apt Erable, beautifully renovated in 2014, lies on the ground floor of an authentic Vallouisian Chalet. The chalet building is located next to the GR54, a long distance footpath that circumnavigates the Ecrins National Park. Within a 2 minute walk in winter you can access children’s toboggan runs and cross country skiing. In summer you are only a 5 minute walk from the centre of Vallouise with shops and restaurants, a mountain bike centre for families, white water kayaking and a pony trekking ranch.
Apt Erable has a private entrance and a garden of 250m². ( Sorry no BBQ's allowed.) Inside the accommodation consists of a living-dining room opening onto a large SW facing balcony. The living room, decorated and faced in local stone, has a table with benches and chairs, and can seat up to 8 guests. The living room also features a very comfortable fold-out sofa bed. There is also a TV with DVD player and a stereo radio player. Through the balcony window one can see the forest leading up to the impressive mountain ridge and popular ski tour La Crête des Lauzières.
The kitchen, separated from the lounge by a beautiful glass wall, is fully equipped. At the same level, there is an alcove or “Coin Montagne” which has two adult-sized bunk beds, and a wardrobe.
To access the lower section of the apartment you descend three steps, where you will find a separate toilet, a bathroom with large modern shower, and heated by a towel radiator with boost, many cupboards and wardrobes and the master bedroom. This is painted in brushed spruce, with shelves and a 160cm bed with bedside tables and lamps. This room has French windows that open onto its own South West-facing balcony.
All walls that are not faced with wood or natural stone, are coated with an environmentally friendly and aesthetic treatment comprising of a lime wax with natural dyes. Warmth in winter is provided by underfloor heating and supplemented by electric heaters.
A private cellar, accessible from the hall of the chalet, is available for storing skis and boots. And in summer, large external lockers, under the stairs of the apartment, can be used to store your canoes, bikes and assorted outdoor stuff!
