It offers lots of shops and restaurants. The Southern Alps are renowned for the sunny climate they enjoy: 300 days of sunshine a year! The area is still very wild and authentic: no mass tourism, lots of hiking trails and many possibilities for sports: hiking, skiing, canyoning, rafting, gliding, mountainbiking,... Both the airport of Marseille-Provence and the train station of Aix-en-Provence (TGV) are a 2 hours drive away. There are buses from the airport/train station to ski resorts of the valley. The house has a private parking lot just in front. More
