In the village Savines le Lac – at walking distance from the largest reservoir lake of Europe, the lake de Serre de Ponçon, is where our apartment is situated.
From the north side of the apartment there is a stunning view overlooking the lake and the mountains of the National Park of des Ecrins.
On the south side you can see the Pique de Morgon, 2400 meters high, a mountain popular with hikers.

For your daily shopping there is a local supermarket and baker's, Every Tuesday and Friday there is a nice market.

The historic town of Embrun is at 6 miles distance and Gap, the capitol of Haute Alpes, is at 28 miles distance.
The distance to Marseille /coast is approximately a 2, 5 hours drive.

Beside the splendid nature with breathtaking panoramic views and authentic villages Hautes Alpes has a vast and various road network which is excellent for adventurous daytrips either by car, motorbike or bicycle.

You could drive in the direction of Italy via the gorges the Queras or to the south, dirction Marseille, via the gorges the Verdon. You will come across different mountain passes, sometimes ony accesable during summer. Besides mountain passes you will see lavender fields and golden mountain tops, in short you will see totally different and overwhelming landscapes.
Driving on these mountain roads is a wonderful experience, at least for those who don't mind taking curvy roads, adventurous roads which can be rather narrow, short hairpins, steep cliffs and challenging distances.

For cyclists or motorbikes the possibilities are numerous, with lots of different mountain passes which are only accesable in summer.

Further remarks

The south side of the French Alps is known for its specific climate, on average 300 days of sunshine but also known for its hot summers and real winters.
During summer you can enjoy the warmth without the humidity due its altitude of 800 meters.
During winter it can freeze hard but thanks to the dry climate you can walk outside in the winters unshine only wearing a sweater.
In January and February it can often be warm enough to sunbath around noon in a sheltered spot.

There is hardly any industry in the area so the air is clear and healing for people with chronic respiratory- or rheumatoid diseases .

Comment from Alie Huizer

Bedankt voor je reactie, Ben. Je was ook een heel fijne en dankbare gast, altijd weer welkom!!

Visited in October 2013

In de herfstvakantie familie bezocht in de buurt van Savines Le Lac. Via Zoover dit juweeltje gevonden! Wij hadden de bovenwoning geheel tot onze beschikking, en dat was heerlijk ruim voor een gezin met drie puber-dochters. De woning was geheel compleet, tot vaatwasser, staafmixer en oven/magnetron. Tevens vermeldenswaard: super werkende WIFI !! Niet onbelangrijk voor pubers...Het uitzicht vanuit de woonkamer is als een droom; onbetaalbaar! Ook de bedden op de zeer ruime slaapkamers lagen heerlijk. Hans en Alie Huizer zijn erg gastvrij en altijd bereikbaar. Ze hebben ook goede tips, zelfs voor de terugreis! Wij hebben in één week koud weer gehad (bij aankomst 8 graden, sneeuw reeds op de toppen!), maar ook heerlijk warm weer met 22 graden overdag dus lekker op één van de vele terrasjes gezeten in de eigen tuin. Bakker en kleine maar ruime supermarkt op loopafstand, grote supermarkten en zelfs Mac Donalds op 8 km afstand in Embrun. Kortom: Aanrader!!!

Visited in September 2013

Nous avons séjourné 3 nuits dans l'appartement et nous n'avons rien à en redire.Le petit déjeuner est vraiment copieux, vous y trouverez différentes sortes de pains des oeufs sous toutes leurs formes ainsi que de la charcuterie et du fromage.Pour les plus "classiques" vous pourrez déguster des croissants ainsi que des confitures.
La vue sur le lac depuis le coin salon est absolument splendide et le calme vous fera passer des nuits extrêmement reposantes.
Les propriétaires sont d'une grande gentillesse et vous accueilleront chaleureusement pour un superbe séjour.
Je recommande fortement ce gite!!

Visited in August 2013

Nous avons passé la nuit du 20 au 21 Août 2013 dans votre gite. Nous avons été très bien accueillis. Les chambres mises à notre disposition (digne d'un grand hôtel) étaient très confortables et décorées avec goût et raffinement. Le petit-déjeuner délicieux et très copieux. Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de notre passage à LA TULIPE à SAVINES LE LAC. Merci Alie et Hans.

Merci beaucoup pour votre accueil et votre aide pour nos premières vacances avec notre petit bébé de 2 mois. C'est simple, nous avons tout apprécié !
Seule petite suggestion pour le petit déjeuner : des œufs...en chocolat
