La ferme du voyageur is a beautiful and characterful country house for 14 in the Hautes-Alpes, with panoramic views of the mountain landscape and located at the foot of the ski slopes. The authentic house was lovingly renovated with high-quality local materials and has a warm and homely interior with influences from all over the world. The owner, Thomas, was inspired by the different countries where he went skiing, such as Switzerland, Afghanistan, India, Tibet and Alaska.
The combination of the old wooden floors with coloured tiles in the bathrooms, beautiful rugs and the unique decorations give the house a lot of character. And the comfortable sitting areas, the charming bedrooms and the wood-burning stoves create an inviting, homely feeling. On the ground floor, the old vaulted stable with exposed stones has been transformed into a cosy lounge area with bar and open kitchen. This is a nice place to get together with all guests for a drink after a ski or hiking trip. On the top floor of the house is a large living room with a view of the peaks of Serre Chevalier and an open kitchen, designed by designer Stéphane Barbier Bouvet. There is also a long dining table where you can dine and have a shared breakfast. Further on, in the centre of the living room, you will find the wood burning stove surrounded by various lounge areas and the balcony across the entire width of the house.
The 7 bedrooms, spread over different levels, each have a unique ambiance and a nice ensuite bathroom with shower or bath. In the bedrooms you will find the original stone walls, the authentic wooden doors and decorative pieces that the owner brought back from his journeys around the world. The lounge area on the ground floor overlooks the lawned garden. Outside you will find a shaded terrace with a dining table and a lawn. There is also a recently built wooden sauna for complete relaxation.
In the surroundings of La ferme du voyageur, La Salle les Alpes, you can of course ski but also outside the ski season this is a nice place to relax. In the summer, when the mountain landscape is colored green, there is plenty to do here. Think for example of lovely walks through the woods or cycling along one of the bicycle routes in this area.

La ferme du voyageur is located in the cosy winter sports village of La Salle les Alpes. In front of the house you will find a bus stop that will take you to the ski lifts within a few minutes and by car you will be there within 2 minutes. With 250 km of ski slopes, the ski area of Serre Chevalier is a fairly compact ski area, but there is enough variation in the slopes: from very steep black slopes, to beautiful red slopes and challenging mountain ridges. This area is an excellent destination for advanced skiers, because there is a lot of height difference and there are fantastic off-piste areas hidden between the larch woods. There are also various routes for snowshoeing, far away from the crowds. Due to the few flat areas, it is less suitable for beginner skiers and snowboarders or for families with small children.
There are several restaurants, shops and bakeries to reach in less than 10 minutes drive. There is also a small market in La Salle les Alpes on Tuesday mornings, with local and fresh products. In addition, you can drive to the market of Oulx Césane at 40 minutes from the house. This market is on the other side of the border and offers a nice day trip to an Italian village. Although La Salle les Alpes is a rather quiet village, you will find cosy restaurants and several bars in the surrounding villages. Drive for example to Chantemerle (2,5 km), Le Monêtier-les-Bains (7,5 km), Briançon (8 km) or the capital of the region Gap (92 km).
Also in the summer there is plenty to do in the area. Hike along one of the lakes in the area, such as Lac de la douche (15 km) or Lac du Pontet (29 km). In addition, there are various challenging cycle routes to be discovered in the vicinity. The surroundings of La ferme du voyageur are beautifully green in the summer and are a wonderful place for mountain walks, cycling, delicious meals and complete relaxation.
