Information on Hautes-Alpes and Property Available for Sale through Leapfrog Properties
Located in the north of the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur region in the south east of France it is a sparsely populated department of France owing to its mountainous surroundings and lack of industry or for that matter agricultural prominence.
During the summer the countryside is filled with the tranquillity of grazing goats and sheep all over the mountainous pastures that become visible once the snow has melted and during the winter becomes a popular residence for skiers taking advantage of a few of its ski resorts such as Devoluy.
These resorts now offer summer activities such as hiking, horse riding, mountain biking, canoeing and sailing.
It is undeniably tranquil and would suit those looking for an Alpine summer/winter residence and is quite reasonably priced for that part of the world although you are neither in the skiing centre of the Alps or in the warm sunshine of Provence but offers something for the outdoor types. The old fortified town of Briancon- one of Europe’s highest towns can be found here perched amongst a dramatic rocky landscape with inviting restaurants below it while the department’s capital city of Gap is where the bulk of the Haut-Alpes residents preside.
