Your charming « pied à terre » in mountains in the South of France
The hotel-appart’hotel ‘Panoramic Village‘ is a charming place build as a village of 17 chalets, all served by wood pedestrian ways. It fits completely in the majestic site that faces it in the southern face and matches with the village La Grave that neighbours it on the same slope.
Les Chalets are near BRIANCON City, the highest town in Europe, notable by its Vauban fortifications.
The hotel is made of, on one hectare of alpine pasture, one big chalet-reception in the middle, real centre of life and animation during the day and of 16 individual adjacent chalets where you will be living. The whole place is pedestrian only.
Our goal is to make you share ‘instants life’ by mixing with nature at pure state and what it can bring you emotionally, and you will feel it from the first day in this place of exception.
During the creation process, the annual direction made an architectural and conceptual choice in that way. The architecture took on the Haut-Alpin’s style (different from the Savoyard’s one), matching with generous volumes, openings and living spaces to enjoy at every moment the alpine pastures around and the environment of exception that presents itself to you.
Charming architecture in the chalets, the standing mixes the mountain’s practical side to subtil decorative touches that every room offers with subtility : larch frames, pouffe in teak’s root covered by skins, handmade mirrors in floatted wood from Corsican beaches, pelts, hearts, original paintings…
Certainly, as numerous guests and regular customers, you won’t be indifferent to all these touches that make the difference. A stay in the chalets, in a such original place, with its Nature’s side is necessarily unique.
« An hotel that I would recommend to my real friends, like a secret that you share only with the ones that you love. »
Come breathe the pure air of our high mountains, the one of the Briançonnais being rightly the most famous.
In winter : the covering of snow absorbs sound, the place becomes magic, it seems that time has stopped, far from the town’s chaos.
In summer : the whisper of the waterfall of the moutain stream distant from 500 meters covers the life sounds of the whole alpine valley. There is also the cricket songs, because at La Grave, you are already in Provence-Alpes-Cote D’Azur, with its climat of exception and the fragances of the South of France !
At daybreak, when you will open the curtains of your bedroom, the natural fragances of the mountains will reach you, the whisper of the waterfall will be covered by the cricket songs…all these feelings will be mixed with the astonishment that will provide you the view on ‘La Reine Meije’ and its glaciers ! That view is rightly known as the second most beautiful panorama of the french Alps.
When entering the big chalet-reception to have breakfast, you will smell, early in the morning, the fragance of the hot bread and the pastries that just got out of the oven. You’ll be tempted by our home-made jams from the Alps, by the cheeses, by the moutain’s tomme cheeses and by the Provence’s season fruits (apricots, peachs…).
Enjoy the Northern Alps recipies with the melted cheese gastronomy (raclette, fondue, tartiflette…), but also discover these from the Southern Alps : tourtons, tourtes, butchery, ewe’s cheese… And don’t forget to savour the teak wine as pre-dinner drink and the Génépi as after-dinner liqueur. Taste also the home-made beer from the Galibier or moreover the famous beer ‘La Tourmente’ from the Alps, brewed at Briançon !
After an active day in mountains, or when coming back from an escapade to discover the country, you will enjoy a relaxing moment on one of our terraces : the shadow one to have a drink, or the swimming-pool one, wearing swimsuits, in full sunlight, to go for a dip or to relax, contemplating the mountains, as the result of your hiking day achievements !
Since its creation, Panoramic Village has been ranked 3 stars according to the old norms, more demanding. It stayed ranked to these 3 stars according to the new regulations of 2009. The audit went well in may 2012.
For your comfort, we have at your disposal a covered car park with 20 parking spots in free access that complete the exterior private car park and the parking area along the private road that faces the hotel.
‘Nordic’ space : there is a spa and a sauna in a dedicated room. The access to that space is on reservation only, for sessions of one hour (in extra). This, to allow users to have a real relaxing moment. And it couldn’t be the case if it was in free access, because it will be completely incompatible with the strict hygiene rules of the sanitary authorities for a spa (one surprise inspection a month).
During summer, from june to middle-september, the exterior swimming-pools are in free access from 10 a.m to 8 p.m, according to the weather, and are heat up at 25°C minimum, with 3 wood beaches, sunbathings and one patio-bar. There is one wading pool for young age children and a second pool to swim for the older. There is free wifi connexion without any code in every chalets.
There are also green spaces and 2 terraces to admire the sunset on the glaciers. They both have a shadow side and a sunny one on mornings and afternoons.
