Your Alpine escape for Outdoor Adventures

After a day on the ski slopes, hiking or unwinding at the thermal baths, Chalet Gyronde is the place to come home to.

Gather around the large wood burner in the lounge on a cold evening. Open all the double french doors and smell the fresh mountain air before stepping out onto the terrace. Stand and gaze out of the kitchen window as the early morning sun beams through the mountains to the valley of the Gyronde River.

Our traditional alpine chalet, on the eastern edge of Ecrins National Park, is the perfect mountain retreat all year round. It’s equipped with everything you need – just turn up, unpack your bags and enjoy what the region has to offer. We’ll make sure your stay is as stress free as possible.

Just 5 minutes‘ drive away is the picturesque town of Vallouise, offering all the essentials for a break away – places to eat and drink, independent shops, sport equipment hire, supermarket and pharmacy. About half an hour away is the large town of Briancon that with many more shops, restaurants and amenities.

„Our little alpine paradise awaits you! We want you to feel at home from the minute you arrive and are on hand to help if you need us.“

Happy Guests

"Great room sizes and really comfortable beds"

We stayed with our three children and dog for a week in January and loved every minute of it. The children had so much space to play in their bedroom and our room had a spectacular view of the snow-covered mountains. The beds were so comfortable, which were needed after skiing every day. We’ve already booked another visit in the summer!

"A real mountain escape"

The journey from Turin airport was really straightforward (around two hours) and there was ample parking, which was a pleasant surprise compared to other places we’ve stayed. Just watch out for the turning – could be easy to miss, especially in the dark. You have to buy fresh bread and pastries from the small bakery in the next village (Les Vigneaux). They’re divine! We enjoyed some low-level walks and generally relaxed around the chalet and local area. A big thank you to Philipp and Suzanne for looking after us – including fixing a small plumbing issue really quickly. See you in 2019!.

„Far exceeded our expectations!“
We stayed here over the new year and cannot fault Chalet Gyronde or our experience. Philippe and Suzanne were the perfect hosts, making sure we had everything we needed but also gave us great tips on things to do in the area. Philippe is a fountain of local knowledge! Lighting the fire and warming up after a day in the snow was heavenly. We’ll definitely be back!
