HABITAT MOUNTAIN A COSY ATMOSPHERE
- english, french
Along with my partner, I enjoy the nature, the mountain activities, the good food and the marvellous quality of life in this pollution-free area. We bought this 19th century house in 2008 and were attracted to it by its superb mountain location and views down over the Serre-Poncon Lake. We have renovated it with sensitivity to retain its original charm.
Martine purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Martine chose Chorges
We know this region and particularly appreciate its sunny climate and its turquoise-colored lake and changing, it is also nicknamed 'the sea to the mountains.' It is with evident pleasure that we love to share the joy of living here, the discovery of a region which has strengths that have nothing to envy to the remains of the Alps. Chorges is a thriving market town situated between Gap and Embrun. It has a very popular Sunday morning market and in the summer time there is also a market on Wednesday evenings. It has a relaxed atmosphere and a variety of good shops, bars and restaurants

Amazing location for all seasons!
Stayed for 9 days in December 2019. Great property, very private, well equiped for 2-4 people . Hiking just a doorstep from property, many ski resorts around, beafifull lake and amazing view from property. Owners are very friendly and helpful. We have been invited to their house to taste local farmers delicatesses and drinks, thanks to Martine and Laadi- we will definately come back again ! Ingrid
Merci beaucoup, vos commentaires nous ravissent. Nous vous attendons à-nouveau avec plaisir !
The gite is perched halfway up the mountain overlooking the stunning Serre-Poncon lake, surrounded by the Southern Alps. Its really well equipped and comfortable, the hosts are lovely but the gite is quite independent from the main house. Walks and the village of Chorges nearby make the stay relaxing AND stimulating.
thank you very match !
Top of the world
This is a lovely apartment at the top of the hill overlooking Chorges. The neighbors are an international group. Everyone was so kind and helpful .
Lots of suggestion and information for places to see and visit in the area.
The apartment is very well equipped, perfect for 2 people.
The terrace is a wonderful place to have morning coffee or evening cocktails or just spend time relaxing during the day!
We spent a delightful week here.
Nous sommes ravis de vous avoir donné satisfaction et avons apprécié nos échanges.
Bon retour à SAN DIEGO.
Lovely property and great hosts
If you are looking for a quiet spot with great locations for lots of outdoor activities Chorges is very central. The property is clean and tidy, has lots of character and is very well equipped. Martine and Laadi are excellent hosts and very helpful (plus Laadi's English is excellent!). Our trip did not quite go to plan but the hospital in Gap is pretty good.
We highly recommended this property.
Thank you very much for your description of your stay in our property. We are delighted to see you again soon.
My wife and I stayed with Laddie and Martine this summer and could not have had a better experience. The day we arrived we were invited into their home to visit with them and their neighbors over a bottle of wine and snacks (both were excellent). The cottage itself was wonderfully decorated and equipped with every convenience. The Chorges area is a perfecthome base for day trips into the Alps and there was plenty to see. Laddie and Martine were extremely helpful with local area information and we enjoyed every suggestion they gave us. If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay and enjoy the French Alps look no further. We hope one day to return and spend more time at this wonderful cottage.
Thank you for the compliments and we will welcome you again, if the opportunity presents itself in the best conditions.
You say hello to our neighbors who were also much appreciated.
Martine and Laadi
