Little speech by the landlord

My name is Jean-Claude Merle, I am the owner of these flats. Former hotelier, I decided in the 2000s to turn these hotel rooms into flats when I understood that the customers were increasingly looking for some freedom of action and affordable prices. These flats are much appreciated since the beginning for their comfort and their unique location.
We are on site and always at the disposal of the customers to welcome and advice them.
Our ski resort has the advantage of being active for two periods each year : in winter and in summer. In summer, these flats are directly in the middle of all the walks and rambles. The mountains offer a spectacular sight with a various vegetation. A little down the Valley, the Ubaye river brings many activities : lakes, canoeing, rafting, horse-riding, golf... Not to mention the Alaris path, a uniquely easy ride mountainside, virtually flat, about 20km long (13 miles).
In winter, the ski domain is really pleasant. The now-called "Carole Merle" slope - formerly "Le Brec" - is located in front of the flats, with a giant slalom stadium part, where my daughter Carole - best skier in the world for 7 years - started before joining France's National Team.
