I stayed in Pippa's comfortable studio apartment with a friend as part of a group on a walking - singing tour in Provence Hautes Alpes at the end of summer in perfect sunny weather. The Snowgums studio had every practical convenience for our comfort and was spotlessly clean. It was in a beautiful location with alpine views and provided a perfect base for hiking adventures and also as a venue for our singing workshops . Pippa was a reliable, warm and welcoming hostess who provided us with all the necessary local advice but was not in any way intrusive. I would love to come back again in the winter for the skiing season!
Stayed at snowgums for the second time, this time in winter (April) and this time we booked the whole chalet for the two families in our party. Worked really well for the two families, having both private space for each, and the large social/ eating room in one of the chalet's where we mostly cooked and ate together.
Really convenient for the skiing at Serre Chevalier and trips to Briancon (shops, old town etc).
* of us stayed comfortably in this wonderfully rustic farmhouse. Pippa was always available and willing to help with any queries. There was a great welcome basket of cheese and other delicacies and the meal she arrange to be delivered from a local chef were fantastic.
We'll be back.
Pippa's chalet had everything you need, it was very clean and well equipped. Pippa was a very informative and friendly host inviting us for coffee and cake on our last morning. The chalet is in an excellent position with skiing only a few minutes drive away. The chalet is split into two apartments which was great for us as we were a group of two separate families. This meant we had our own private space but we're able to enjoy meals together in the larger apartment. All in all this was just what we were looking for. Thanks Pippa!
