Welcome to the Ailefroide Chalet Hotel…
Of all the Alpine valleys, this is the wildest and the most secret. People do not arrive here by chance, but as if guided here by beauty. One more turn along an out-of-the-way route, and there, nestling at the foot of Pelvoux for more than a century, is the hidden house…
The Ailefroide Chalet Hotel is a hotel/restaurant located in a natural site that has been listed since 1911, at the edge of the Ecrins National Park, in the municipality of Pelvoux in the Hautes-Alpes department, and in the Provence, Alpes, Côte d’Azur region.
For a holiday, a short stay or a weekend you will find a warm welcome at the Ailefroide Chalet hotel, a legendary establishment and truly charming hotel in a magical setting with an immense shaded park at the heart of the Ecrins Natural Park.
A hotel-restaurant with 27 rooms, each one different and catering to every need, with two restaurants, one reserved for half-board or full-board guests, and another for non-resident clients, offering traditional mountain cuisine. The Chalet also has a snack bar with a terrace and fireplace, with a magnificent view of the Ecrins mountains, a TV room, a reading room or conference room, internet area and free wifi, children’s games, sauna, jacuzzi and a private car park.
As well as the wealth of choices on offer at Ailefroide for hiking and climbing, the Vallouise valley also has a wide range of other activities such as mountain biking, whitewater sports (canyoning, rafting), paragliding, via ferrata, horse riding, fishing, archery, summer sledding, hot-air ballooning, quad and an adventure park with zip-line.
Amelie and Lionel, the owners of the Ailefroide Chalet Hotel, are always described as friendly, attentive, discreet and thoughtful.
Here visitors receive a considerate and natural welcome!
“Ailefroide is the last little village before the high summits, nestling on a level green space at the foot of the pyramid of rock and ice of Mont Pelvoux (3946 m). This base camp, famous among mountaineers, is also a well-known and popular rock and wall climbing site, the point of departure for a large number of races and hikes, and for the pathways to the refuges and the Alpine peaks – the Pelvoux, Glacier Blanc and Sélé Refuges.
Closed in winter due to snowfall. “
