Who we are

In this former farm, which will be opened as a Bed and Breakfast as per February 2019, you can enjoy a unique stay in the Hautes Alpes. To be more precise in Val des Pres, a small village situated in ‘Vallée de la Clarée’. The township Val des Pres consists of three villages: La Vachette, Le Rosier and Val des Pres, with around 400 residents in total. Within an approximate 10-minute drive from Val des Pres you will find the historical town Briancon.
The former hotel Les Airelles has changed ownership in June. The new owners are very dedicated to renovating the house whilst keeping, and even accentuating the old elements, as much as possible.
The new owners (who speak French, Dutch, English and German) are very acquainted with the area. The host has previously lived in the surroundings of Val des Pres from 1994 until mid-2003. He will be happy to share with you the special places to go hiking, biking, skiing or cross-country skiing.
Les Airelles is set up as a Bed and Breakfast, but in addition to your bed and breakfast, we also like to welcome you into our intimate dining room, accommodated with fireplace, for a nice cup of coffee, thee or other beverage. Les Airelles also has a garden suited with romantic seating areas to enjoy the sun and the surroundings. When weather permits, breakfast can be served in the garden. Special requests for breakfast can be catered for..
The garden adjacent to the house is specially tailored to entertain children. Inside the house there is also enough to keep the kids entertained, there are numerous toys, books, boardgames and crafting materials.

Perfect location

Les Airelles is ideally located 9 minutes from Briançon, 2h15 from Grenoble and less than 15 minutes from Italy.Situated in the heart of the Hautes Alpes you can enjoy the mountains and many activities in the surrounding area.

Les Airelles is simply wonderful, I wish we had been staying longer...

This is a little gem in the French Alps. It's a 200 year old farm house so full of character, about 5 kms from Briancon and really quiet. The host and owner Andre welcomed us warmly and showed us to a lovely upstairs room overlooking the meadows - comfortable beds and alpine air ensured a good night's sleep. The breakfast the next morning was just superb - boiled eggs, cold meat, local cheeses and preserves, croissants and breads, Nespresso coffee, fruit, crepes...it went on and on! 

I cannot recommend Les Airelles highly enough.

« Très étonnée par le raffinement de la décoration et les attentions(bar,frigo...).petit déjeuner excellent et hôte très disponible pour la conversation. Bien placé au début de la vallée de Névache et près de Briançon. Une adresse à recommander. »
