Welcome to AlpBase.com – Situated in the Ecrins Massif-Hautes Alpes, in the heart of the Southern French Alps, we offer low-cost self-catering chalets and apartments for climbers, walkers, skiers and mountain bikers. Families, groups, couples - everyone is welcome as long as you love the outdoors!
The Ecrins provides over 300 days of sunshine every year, and has the largest range of mountain sports and activities in Europe. It is an ideal base for the active family, ice climbers, aspiring alpinists, dedicated rock climbers, Via Ferrata lovers, skiers and snowboarders on a budget, and wilderness walkers who enjoy a layed-back, friendly and traditional alpine environment.
The AlpBase.com team is run by UK Expedition Climber Jerry Gore and his wife Jackie and comprises the Ecrins’ top mountain guides. We all live and climb here year-round, so we can offer you the best chance of enjoying this huge and spectacular mountain arena.
