About the place
We provide coliving and coworking space for mountain loving digital nomads and remote workers. It is an ideal place if you are looking to get inspired and productive in your professional life and to spend your free time doing mountain-based activities. Located in Briancon, Europe’s highest town in the heart of Ecrins National Park and at the foot of one of France’s largest ski resorts, Serre Chevalier.
Our house is located at the edge of the fortifications with unobstructed views down the valley. It is the former residence of the military governor of Briançon. We renovated the house to make it comfy, functional and to add a modern touch to it, while keeping its historical character.

The bedrooms are on the first and third floors, and the whole second floor is dedicated to common spaces, including a shared fully equipped kitchen, a dining room with two large tables, a chill room with comfy couches, two coworking spaces with ergonomic chairs and soon a skype room. The house also has a washing room on the first floor (washing machine + tumble dryer), and a big workout room on the third floor (with yoga matts).

We offer four different types of rooms :
- Private Room Double Bed (Ensuite Bath.)
- Private Room Double Bed (Shared Bath.)
- Private Room Single Bed (Shared Bath.)
- Dorm Room
All private rooms are equipped with a luxury memory foam mattress (Emma), a desk and a closet/wardrobe. We build mezzanines in our dorm room to create four sleeping pods/cabins that can be closed with curtains to ensure privacy. They also integrate a nightstand/locker and other storages. All rooms have a view on the mountains and receive a lot of light.
The UNESCO protected citadel, aka “Cité Vauban”, feels like a village within the town. It has its own ecosystem and people living there are referred to as “Gargouillards”. Various guided historical/cultural visits are organized on a regular basis by the city. Its narrow streets also host many restaurants, shops, art galleries, and other wonders.

The Hautes-Alpes contains treasures of nature and is a playground exemplary in its diversity and its wild character. Briançon lies at the meeting point of five valleys. Its adjacent national park, Les Ecrins, host several glaciers and culminates at 4101 meters high. If you come in winter, after discovering the 250 km of slopes of Serre Chevalier, you can explore different closeby resorts or try something different like snowshoeing or ski touring to experience the less accessible areas of Ecrins and Queyras national parks. We also usually like to have a chill day or after ski recovery in the thermal baths directly accessible from the slopes. If you want more adventure, La Grave off-piste ski resort is 45 minutes’ drive, and Lautaret’s pass, one of the most famous European snowkite spot, is 30 minutes’ drive. If you come in summer, there is even more choice and ways to experience the playground we are surrounded with: rock climbing, via ferratas, alpinism, mountain/downhill/road biking, kayaking, rafting, canyoning, hiking, trail running, paragliding, wild camping, etc. We are right in the middle of the fun!
