Chalet Carpe Diem Information


The cottage is listed by Gîte de France and is located at an altitude of 1,000 m. (3,280 ft) in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes, a county in the southern Alps, and borders the lovely forest Forêt du Sapet, 3 km (1.8 miles) from a village called La Bâtie Neuve. The location is ideal for you to enjoy many leisure activities all year round: skiing –with over 6 ski resort close by–, snowshoe trekking, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, mountain walking, cycle touring, whitewater sports, aerial activities –hot air ballooning, paragliding, hang-gliding, free fall, microlighting...–. The wooden cottage is also very close to the magnificent Lake Serre-Ponçon where you can enjoy water activities or simply decide to laze about.

I was born in the central area of France called Berry and discovered the Hautes-Alpes as a child. I was awestruck by the mountains and soon decided to settle down in this area to work as a photographer specialising in nature, leisure and tourism photography. I imagined the wooden cottage as a cocoon where visitors could let go and indulge in contemplation. Running a rural holiday accommodation allows me to show my guests the beauty of the region. As a photographer, I am always outdoors crisscrossing the area, so I know it like the back of my hand! From alpine sceneries and mountain wildlife to small local producers, I am always happy to share my knowledge of the area with the guests spending their holiday at Chalet Carpe Diem. Also, I can offer personalised photography workshops to those interested in an introduction to mountain shooting.
