Family holidays without no compromising

All the winter sports, far from the crowds and queues... does that sound tempting?

About : Family holidays without no compromising

The ideal place for all that is a small human-sized resort, such as Le Col d'Ornon.
Somewhat separate from the other resorts, Ornon spreads out over the sides of a mountain that has remained untamed, thereby offering an incomparable natural setting. This modest resort may be the smallest in Oisans, but it has nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to activities: downhill skiing, Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, sledging, winter orientation course, ice climbing, ski touring and dog sledding. If you are still hesitating, despite the tranquility that will charm you the moment you arrive, the untouched natural surroundings and the range of activities on offer, bear in mind that ski passes are low, low, low...

3 km before le Col d'Ornon, in the small mountain hamlet of Le Rivier d'Ornon, we welcome you to the Gîte de la Lignarre, a favourite base for those who love the "quiet mountains". At an altitude of 1200 m, it will be your base camp for exploring the surrounding mountain ranges, as well as your comfortable nest for a well-deserved rest. The gîte, an old building made of local stone, has been renovated with love and patience by hosts, Fabrice and Valérie. In love with the area and passionate about mountain sports (Fabrice is a trek leader and generous enthusiast, full of good advice), they have turned it into a small, cosy refuge. Featuring a large living room, central wood-burning stove, cosy reading corner and spacious rooms, all the fixtures and ways of living ensure the environment of this happy, little place is preserved.
