Property Description

Beautiful lakeside property in quiet sector next to Lac du Serre Poncon.

The Villa…. This beautiful spacious property was built in 1990 by the current owners. They quickly realised the potential of renting out parts of the house and so created 2 apartments and a guest room which create a substantial income for them over 3 months of the summer. ( figures available on request ). The house is bright and spacious with lovely outside space on all sides. The private part of the house has terraces on the front and rear of the property and enjoys stunning views over the lake. The open plan living room / dining area leads in to the fully fitted kitchen which also opens out on to the terrace. Behind the kitchen is an office / laundry. On this floor is the master bedroom which has been cleverly created to include the en suite bathroom / shower located behind the bedstead. The bathroom is fitted with Italian tiles and has a large shower and jacuzzi bath.

On the lower ground floor is one of the rental apartments, which measures 70 m2. It can be connected internally but guests access it from the side of the building. It has it’s own sunny terrace that has views over the lake. The living area is all open plan and there are 2 double rooms and a large shower room. At the rear of the apartment is a vast cave / storage room ( 50 m2 ) which is used by the owners for personal effects. Guests benefit from a small 2 person sauna at the back of the living area. The second apartment is on the upper floors. It is accessed from the main entrance and is on 2 floors. The living area has a fully fitted kitchen will all modern appliances. The lounge / diner looks out over the lake and a wooden staircase leads upstairs to the 2 double bedrooms. The shower room / w.c is modern and clean. Hot water is provided by the solar panels on the roof but a supplementary gas boiler has been installed for bad weather. 7

This property is in a stunning location and would make a lovely family property. The current owners occupy the villa for 3 months of the summer when they operate the gite business at 90 % occupancy. There is scope to increase the rentals, but the owners are more than happy with the revenue generated in this short period.

The Area…. Savines le Lac is the central village of the whole of Lac du Serre Poncon. It has several bars and restaurants as well as a small harbour where boat trips take clients on the tour of the lake. There are private moorings available for sailboats also. The lake is at 750 m altitude and covers an area of 29 square kilometres making it the largest artificial lake in Europe. It is 20 kms long and holds 1.2 billion litres of water. The area is hugely popular in spring and summer as it has camp sites all around the lake and water sports centres up and down its length. Embrun is the main town beside the lake and it has all the amenities found in any normal sized town - shops, supermarkets, school and hospital. Savines le Lac is just 10 Kms away from Reallon ski resort and 15 kms from Les Orres….. 2 lovely family ski stations that have views over the lake in winter. This is a spectacular part of the Southern Alps which offers so much all year round.

Vars/Risoul (Domaine de la Foret Blanche) Ski Area

Vars is a picturesque ski village which is connected by piste to Risoul, making up an impressive 185 kms of piste. They are located in the heart of the Southern Alps just beside the historic town of Guillestre, which is the gateway to the Queyras National Park.

This whole area is relatively unknown in foreign ski circles, but popular with skiers from the south coast of France, as it is only 2 hours away. 
The villages are authentic but still have all of the facilities found in more expensive, more exploited ski resorts.
