There is a wide range of accommodation available in the Durance Valley for rock climbers (in the Hautes Alps or otherwise known as the Southern Alps). There are several campsites, Gites (self-catering holiday cottages), expensive hotels, budget hotels and self-catering apartments. There are a couple of good places for rock climbers to base themselves, which are Ailefroide and Vallouise.
Alpbase is a company that offers mountain and rock climbing courses as well as several self-catering apartments to rent to rock climbers.
Based in the village of Vallouise in the heart of the Durance Valley, there are several self-catering apartments suitable for up to 8 people. Each apartment is fully furnished and makes ideal accommodation for rock climbers.
Contact Alpbase direct for further information, availability and prices.
There are many campsites in the Durance Valley, though the most popular with rock climbers is the campsite at Ailefroide, which has recently been extended to hold up to 500 places.
