“A fantastic choice for our first Alpine adventure!”
Reviewed 11 October 2018 for a stay in August 2018

A fantastic choice for our first Alpine adventure: a cool, restful home to return to after a hot day out exploring. We've had a lovely week, arriving and getting around by public transport: up to the top of mountains, to the Vallee de la Claree, and open air swimming in Chantemerle (next time, definitely trying out the spa!). It was the perfect compliment to our preceding city-break in Turin and we now have so many ideas for what to do on our next visit. Thanks ever so much for all your warm welcome, local advice and interesting conversations. .

“Lovely relaxed place for families”
Reviewed 8 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Clean, well-appointed, safe and secure apartment in a very quiet part of Briancon. Pippa is an excellent host; our small kids took to her right away and it was a real home from home for us. Briancon is in Alps central; breathtaking scenery, plenty of Summer and Winter mountain activities and the old town is beautiful.

“Great base for mountain fun”
Reviewed 19 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a really warm welcome by Pippa at Snowgums and the most fantastic week in the mountains. So much to see and do in such a beautiful landscape - cycling, lake swimming and hiking. Pippa gave us some great pointers and was extremely knowledgable about the area.

Mimi (8 yrs) - Thank you for having us and giving us lovely ideas for activities. We have had a lovely time because of you. The apartment is really snuggily.

Tom (6 yrs) - Thank you for having us in Snowgums. Very, very happy in this flat.

“Wonderful place to stay in the beautiful Haute Alps”
Reviewed 3 December 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed in the top apartment which was perfect for us (2 adults and 2 children aged 4 and 5).The girls loved the bunk beds and were heaven with all the toys.Beautifully furnished with a well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and lovely welcome pack. Great, quiet location with pretty garden where we enjoyed a barbecue and a glass of wine in the evenings.

What made this place so special was Pippa.She made all of us so welcome and gave us excellent ideas of where to go each day. We fell in love with the area so beautiful. We would definitely recommend. We had a very lovely time and hope to go back one day!
