Holiday gîtes and Bed and Breakfast
in South Isère

South Isère

Forming the most western part of the alpine mountain range, the South Dauphiné offers a mosaic of natural structures of remarkable variety. With an easy access to its mountains, picturesque houses, a reputation for its healthy climate, beautiful lakes and gastronomy, this area offers authentic and unspoilt landscapes and all the simple pleasures of these medium-high mountains.

The Dauphiné Mountains have much more to offer than the better-known mountain ranges. One must add the luminous Trièves plateau, where Giono enjoyed resting, the Matheysine and its splendid Lac de Laffrey and the Beaumont crowned by the Marian sanctuary of La Salette.

Lac de Laffrey

Only 23 km from Grenoble, in the Taillefer and the Matheysine mountain range, the Laffrey Lake offers a real breath of fresh air! Ranked eighth in popularity for French lakes, the Laffrey Lake has a boating centre and 4 beaches with activities for all ages: fishing, diving, hiking and for the more intrepid, an adventure trail, quad and paintballing!

Lac du Monteynard


Located 630 m above sea level and stretching over 10 km, the Monteynard Lake forms a natural separation between the Trieves and Matheysine valleys. Only 45 minutes from Grenoble, this lake, which can be seen from the famous train of La Mure, offers astonishing aspects. The turquoise blue water, stunning canyons and some very steep banks, make a mysterious setting that has become a paradise for windsurfers, fishermen but also people who love contemplating beautiful sceneries during short cruises organized on the bateau de la Mira.

Signaraux - La Motte d’Aveillans
Run by volunteers and town support, the small Signaraux / La Motte Aveillans resort welcomes you at an altitude between 1200m and 1700m. Enjoy a family holiday and discover the many activities here: snowshoeing hikes, cross-country skiing, sledding and alpine skiing. A village resort with a family atmosphere to discover while staying with the villagers in a typical guesthouse or gîte.

Lac du Sautet

On the southern limit of the Isère, the Sautet Lake offers turquoise blue water at the foot of the Obiou, a mythical mountain at the crossroads between the mountain ranges of the Ecrins, the Dévoluy, the Trièves and the Matheysin plateau. Come and enjoy the perfect lake for all types of water activities, and discover the spectacular Gorges de la Souloise canyon on board of an electro-solar boat.


Former stopover on the ancient Roman roads, Mens, the Trieves capital, is located at the heart of a mountain cirque between the Vercors and the Dévoluy, dominated by the Châtel and the Obiou. While strolling along the town streets, discover the houses with their dormer windows and pulleys, once used to hoist the hay up into the 'bourras”.

The Salette-Fallavaux

Second Marian place for pilgrimage in France after Lourdes, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of La Salette was built on the exact spot where the Marian apparition is said to have occurred to two young shepherds from Corps in 1846. An interesting ex-voto collection can also be seen in the Musée de l’Apparition

Alpe du Grand Serre


Enjoy staying in a local gîte or typical B&B on the outskirts of the Oisans, just 45 minutes from Grenoble, and discover the Alpe du Grand Serre, one of the earliest ski resorts in the Dauphiné. Lots of fun activities for the whole family: hiking, snowshoeing, via ferratas, fishing, orienteering and of course its main activity, skiing on the 55km of ski runs this beautiful resort has to offer.

Tréminis - domaine nordique


Surrounded by the Obiou, the Tête de Lapras, the Grand Ferrand, the Tête de Lauzon… Treminis is at the centre of the most amazing and high snowy peaks with 42km of Nordic skiing and snowshoeing tracks.
