Vacation rental in the mountains in summer in Vars

Luxury chalet holidays in Vars

Vars is a village resort in the heart of nature, in the Hautes-Alpes department. It's a destination that doesn't get a lot of attention during the summer season, yet it's full of pleasant surprises! And to make the most of your summer holidays in the mountains, we recommend renting an individual chalet. A seasonal rental option that offers you a serene and authentic stay. "Chalets de Cœur", the benchmark for top-of-the-range chalet rentals in the French Alps, has a number of luxury chalets in the village of Vars. These unique accommodations can be equipped with an indoor swimming pool, a sauna or a cinema room, no less! The chalets are spacious and modern, yet retain the character of traditional Alpine chalets. They are fully equipped, and thanks to the special care taken with the wooden materials, you'll enjoy a stay that's as relaxing as it is exhilarating. You can also take advantage of a range of services to enhance your stay in Vars, including bread and pastry delivery, in-home chef, catering and mid- and end-of-stay cleaning.
  

Cet été, découvrez le Val d’Escreins

Vars is actually made up of 4 hamlets: Saint-Marcellin, Sainte-Catherine, Les Claux and Sainte-Marie. As you stroll through the narrow streets this summer, you'll be able to see preserved infrastructures such as wash-houses, communal ovens and old chalets. Symbols of a centuries-old mountain heritage. Don't miss the chance to venture into the unspoilt Val d'Escreins. A feeling of immensity will surely overcome you when you find yourself alone in the middle of the Queyras Regional Nature Park. With larch forests, verdant mountain pastures, torrents and ever-changing wildlife, nature here is dazzling. You'll also be at the heart of the history of this area of the Hautes-Alpes, with its small chapels, mountain huts and numerous ruins of old hamlets,
 

A holiday that's as sporty as it is relaxing

And when you feel the need to cool off, don't worry, there are plenty of lakes within easy reach of Vars: the high-perched Lac de l'Etoile (2755m altitude), the picturesque Lac des 9 couleurs, the accessible Lac Napoléon and Lac de Peyrol. If you're a thrill-seeker, there are plenty of summer activities on offer in Vars. Rafting, accrobranche, climbing, paragliding, quad biking etc. And if you're a keen cyclist, there's also the Vars Bike Park. A huge playground with 160km of trails for all levels.
