What is Cloud Citadel

Cloud Citadel is a coliving and coworking space for mountain loving digital nomads/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.

Boasting 300+ days of sunshine a year, Briancon offers nomads the perfect balance of work and activities in the outdoors. 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, and its adjacent national park, Les Ecrins, host several glaciers and culminates at 4101 meters high.

We love people and we think that when they come together, magic happens

Everyone has their unique path in life, has been through a unique set of experiences and accumulated specific knowledge. When we share time together, we get surprised, we get smarter, we laugh, we cry, we challenge ourselves, we learn from our mistakes, we help each other, we realize that we are all facing the same kind of issues, we connect with each other, we reconnect with ourselves, and all of that enables us to blossom, each of us in our own beautiful way.

What people say about us

  • I spent one week at Cloud Citadel and I had an excellent time! The location in the old town is terrific, the number of available activities incredible, and I still can't believe how nice the weather was! Not to mention, the view on the mountains from the bedroom and the coworking space! More importantly, the hosts, Joey and Jelena, radiate the perfect vibe to create an excellent coliving place, attracting a community of like-minded people, facilitating deep connections and great shared experiences. Will I come back? Count on it!

  • I stayed for 2 weeks in Cloud Citadel. It's really amazing that Joey and Jelena created this nomad-HOME, as it's so much more than just a co-working space! I don't do any winter mountain sports but still decided to come here in January to create focus-time for myself and my business. The fresh Alpine air, inspiring people, stunning views (through all the windows!) and great facilities made that I got a lot of shit done, but also felt like I got a lot of self-care opportunities here being in a nature environment. The (cheap) direct night train from Paris is also a big advantage! Definitely coming back soon and will be recommending it to my friends!

  • Wonderful place! We stayed there for 3 weeks in January and loved every minute of our stay. The house is gorgeous, well equipped and spotless clean and the coworking space has probably one of the most amazing mountain views ever.We also enjoyed the location a lot! Briancon is a beautiful town and the outdoor options are almost infinite. In January we went skiing in the morning, headed for a couple snowshoe walks, ski touring while others went climbing. Winter is awesome there but to be honest summer and autumn must be equally amazing since the area looks like a hiker's paradise. We'll be back that for sure!Jelena and Joey are 2 truly amazing hosts who will always make sure everything is perfect for their guests. We will be back without any hesitation and highly recommend this beautiful space to all outdoor enthusiasts.
  • "The Cloud Citadel community quickly made us feel like we were part of a family. Then there’s the place itself; a monumental historic building that Jelena and Joey have renovated with serious swag. Then there’s the location: a UNESCO heritage site at the foot of some of Europe’s best slopes? STOP. The coworking facilities and professionalism of the work side of things are matched by the easy going vibes on the social side, whether you're slinging back a glass of vin rouge in the kitchen or playing board games in the common room with the crew. All I can say is: good luck leaving, this place starts to feel like home fast.

  • It was so amazing to stay and work in an former 19th century military barracks. Cloud Citadel was the perfect mix of things to do and a slow pace of life to get work done.
