2 bed ground floor apartment with very large garden in centre of Vallouise

Condo/Apartment -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Vallouise, Hautes-Alpes, Provence-Alpes-Cote d'Azur
Centrally located in the alpine village of Vallouise, Acacia is a self-contained apartment that sleeps up to 5 adults, plus a baby. Completely renovated in 2011. The apartment is located on the ground floor of our alpine chalet only a few minutes walk from the centre of Vallouise.
