The Hotel

Relaxed atmosphere, personal hospitality & doorstep skiing!

Explore the mountains. Meet friends. Feel at home. 

A few years ago we are; Valentijn and Yvonne van der Valk, settled in sunny Puy Saint Vincent.

We hope you will feel at home here in our cozy Mountainhotel Saint Roch.

Sunny greeting, Valentine & Yvonne and our enthusiastic team!

In winter it is wonderful to spend your winter holiday here. Our hotel is next to the slopes. If you want we arrange your ski pass so that it is in your room by arrival and you can ski from early till the end of the day. Thanks to the Galaxy Pass you can even use extra advantage of 7 other ski areas in the area. What do you think of a day of skiing in Italy? It is all around the corner.

Some of the most legendary cols from the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia, but also a few "jewels for insiders", less known to the general public but very worthwhile. You can drive routes from 40 to over 200 km with steep and less steep climbs. Just what suits you.

With the Bucketlist Challenge you can experience an amazing cycling week independently and completely unburdened.

Why Hotel Saint Roch?

Mountain biking in the National Parc des Ecrins

For both the experienced and less experienced biker, there are plenty of opportunities for mountain biking from Puy Saint Vincent. The rolling routes that run down the river along the rivers form a beautiful training ground. You can also use your mountain bike with the ski lift to go up and then take one of the spectacular downhill routes. Children can get mountain bike experience in one of the two bike parcs.

As an avid mountain biker you can completely go on the many GR trails. These are everywhere and with which you can make your own adventurous route. You have to be well trained to be able to cycle all 'single tracks' here. You go over GR's (very quiet hiking trails), to passes and heights over 2000 meters ... you do not get the climb, but the long climbs along an incredibly beautiful setting are rewarded with very tough descents.

Enjoy the ride!

About us

A few years ago we are; Valentijn and Yvonne van der Valk, settled in sunny Puy Saint Vincent. We literally cycled on our world tour and fell in love with the rugged nature of the National Parc des Ecrins, the authentic village, all the sports you can do here and of course the abundance of sun. We wanted to stay here longer!

From Bergcamping, to Luxury Chalet to Mountainhotel!

So we started with the pleasure of managing the Camping Croque Loisirs. In the winter we supported Vincent and Ilonka Biermans with their Chalet AlpeLune. Both accommodations are in Puy Saint Vincent. In this way we quickly became more and more interwoven with the special and simple existence in the Southern French Alps.

We decided to build a living here, found a nice house and our three children were born here. When we could buy Mountainhotel Saint Roch a few years ago, a hectic time started, but at the same time a dream came true for us!

Why a hotel?

Valentijn van der Valk grew up with the dynamics of hotel life by his family. A world in which he is completely in his element. Valentijn met Yvonne at the Van der Valk hotel in Eindhoven. She also loves to give the guests a great 'home' feeling. The passion to create the conditions to give our guests a wonderful holiday can be lost in our own cozy mountain hotel!

The search for a special place to live

We have transformed the hotel into an atmospheric and pleasant place with the help of many dear relatives and friends. Every year we try to 'upgrade' something new to make this place even more of an ultimate basecamp for your holiday in the mountains.

The bikes that we used to cycle around the world at the time, on the campsite in summer & winter, were our only means of transport and have given us a lot of adventure in a search for a special place to live, you can now find our hotel. We have found our home and hope that you will experience it here as well.

What can you do with us?

Our hotel is a great starting point for a lot of adventures. In winter you can fully enjoy a fully catered winter holiday. From our Mountain hotel you can immediately go on the slopes and in the evening you can enjoy a warm and friendly atmosphere in the living room by the fireplace!

In the summer our hotel is the starting point for cyclists, mountain bikers, hikers and families who love outdoor activities such as via ferrata, rafting or canyoning. What you can do here we have collected on this website. That is where the fun of your holiday starts!

Are you curious about staying with us? Take a look around our website and feel free to ask your question if you want to know more. We look forward to seeing you!

Sunny greeting from Puy Saint Vincent,

Valentijn, Yvonne, Tygo, Iza and Lilou
