Vallouise is a very pretty town, surrounded by beautiful mountains. It is just a few minutes drive from the local ski resort which was perfect and also 30 minutes drive to a larger ski resort if you fancy a change, We were given a very warm welcome by the owners, who were kind and helpful throughout our stay. The accommodation had everything that we needed, it was warm and comfortable and felt like home. We had an amazing time here and cant wait to come back some time soon. Highly recommended, more

L'Acacia had everything we needed for a comfortable holiday and was very clean. Being in the center of Vallouise, we only had to walk to the end of the road to get bread and provisions. The views of the mountains were all around and there were numerous interesting walks and outdoor activities to get involved in. The owners, Jackie and Jerry, were very helpful and willing to suggest places to visit. This was not our first visit to L'Acacia and hopefully it won't be our last! more
