Bear Stone

Bear Stone

The Bear Stone is a traditional alpine stone farmhouse that has been recently renovated into a cosy B&B.

Sophie and Damien own and run the Bear Stone and are passionate outdoories, sure to give you a warm welcome. Their lovely B&B is situated in a tiny hamlet called Les Borels, in the middle of the beautiful Champoléon valley. You will be surrounded by the mountains of the Ecrins National Park, one of the most dramatic mountain ranges of the French Alps.

The large family room (30 m2) offers one double bed and two single beds (with the possibility of adding up a third bed, for a maximum capacity of 5 people) and an ensuite toilet and bathroom. There is an internet access with unlimited wifi.

Breakfast is a typical French continental breakfast. Evening meals aren't available at the Bear Stone, but there is a very good restaurant and bar at the "Auberge des Ecrins", 2 minutes away in the same hamlet!

Peace and quiet, with a rustic feel and alpine ambiance and character ... this is a great place to stay for a romantic week away in the Alps.

In winter it is just a 20 minute drive from the main ski resort of Orcières 1850 and from 3 or 4 very nice ski villages. There are cross country ski pistes and snowshoe walks straight from the door.

In summer there are some fantastic walks and mountain bike rides straight from the door and it is close to paragliding, canyoning, high ropes adventure, a night in a refuge, tree climbing ... and more.
