Cloud Citadel is the perfect place to be active and work remotely. There are lots of opportunities to socialize, but also to have privacy. Jelena and Joey, the hosts, will do everything to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Guests were friendly and active, and we organized daily activities together, such as skiing, rock climbing, hikes, and shopping trips. The house is large and very comfortable with different spaces to co-work and socialize. The hosts organized several events like family meals, movie/board game nights, pub quizzes and picnics, which made the stay very interesting. The house is located a few minutes’ walk to Briançon’s city center and the Serre Chevalier ski resort. It is possible to walk to Serre Chevalier in the morning, have a nice snowboarding session and be back to the house in the afternoon to work. It is also possible to rock climb all year long in literally thousands of routes within 30 minutes’ drive from the house. The types of rock and routes are varied and suitable for all levels of rock climbers. There are countless hikes and areas for ski touring nearby. Other popular activities are trail running, biking, paragliding, kayaking, rafting and snow kiting. There is also a nice crag and via ferrata about only 15-20 minutes’ walk from the house. I had an amazing stay at Cloud Citadel and I will definitely come back.

I had the most wonderful time there, I cannot recommend enough ! I was there in January and I will be back in the summer for sure. The location is amazing : inside a lovely city, close to many activities and sunny all year round. The place itself is fantastic : best dorm I have ever slept in, fully equipped kitchen, great work environment and cosy living rooms. The people were great, we had a lot of fun. The hosts are really helpful and the whole organization is spot on. What more do you want ? 🤷🏼♂️
Cloud Citadel is an epic workation location in the sunny Alps of Briançon. It's a great mix of nature, community and 'get shit done' vibes. I really enjoyed my time there exploring the surroundings and rock climbing, rafting, hiking and doing via ferrata. The community Cloud Citadel attracts is also super cool and a great bunch of open-minded and fascinating people. Can't wait till I come back!
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!

This community is absolutely incredible! The hosts are wonderful people who will make you feel right at home and welcome. They go way above and beyond to be helpful in any way they can and to share cool experiences in the surrounding mountains with their guests. This place draws interesting people who are hard-working and have a passion for the outdoors. I hope to visit again!
I had a fantastic time at Cloud Citadel. Jelena and Joe are great hosts and made us feel super welcome. There was a delicious potluck dinner the night we arrived which was allowed us to get to know the other guests. On Friday evening we went camping up to a beautiful, remote alpine lake. We packed some challenging but fun via ferrata mountaineering in during the weekend before we left. The work space is ideal, quick internet, proper office chairs, and importantly super comfy bed. I will definitely be back!
I stayed two months at Cloud Citadel this winter and i loved it! Jelena and Joé built a cosy and beautiful coliving space - special mention to the bedsheets 🤩. Other people in the house were all smart, fun and respectful - with a shared passion for good food and drinks 😋. Now let's talk about outside the house, in one word, stunning: mountains, blue sky, fresh snow and mulled wine... try not to be happy with that! I'll be back for sure ❤️.

What was supposed to be a one month stay quickly turned into 4 months and counting :D. When countries were starting to announce that they were about to lock down in March 2020, I knew there was no reason for me to try to go anywhere else. You have everything you could possibly need here. The surroundings are breathtaking. Amazing paths for hiking or MTB riding, climbing routes are a 20 min drive away in any direction, and snow/ski in winter has been loads of fun here, with plenty of runs just 12 min away on foot. So yes, if you want nature, you have it all here, but even just hanging out at the house has been such a nice experience. The internet is top notch, real office chairs in the coworking space and I don't even know where to begin when talking about the hosts, Jelena and Joey. They're model colivers, always thinking about nice things to do for the rest of the community here. Whether it's making crêpes on Sunday morning or organizing countless group activities, you can tell that they genuinely enjoy doing this stuff and spending time with you. Thank you guys for welcoming me with open arms and putting up with me for longer than anyone should ever need to haha >:D<
Where can I even start ? This place is amazing! I came for 2 months and ended up extending as much as possible, as did everyone else. So from that perspective make sure you book in advance. Cloud Citadel is an incredible place. We had activities every week and a family meeting on Mondays to plan everything, ski touring, climbing, via ferrata, hikes, quizzes, skill shares etc. striking a great balance between having fun and being productive. The family dinners every Saturday were amazing also because we got to spend even more time together. I was lucky to meet some incredible people and to create some really strong bonds. Also Jelena and Joe were the absolute best hosts. They are kind and caring and they do their best to make sure everyone feels at home and is enjoying the time spent there! The place is really clean and super well organized. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back as it was a really memorable experience! Thanks again for everything.

Spoiler alert! Probably one of the best coliving you'll ever stay! 😁 We stayed 3 months as a couple during winter/spring time, and we had such a fantastic time at Cloud Citadel!!! The place is amazing! It's a massive renovated old house on top of the mountain, but still accessible, with a stunning view of the valley, the rooms are cozy, warm and decorated with wonderful taste. The location is perfect, crazy good weather, we had 98% sun in three months... close to shops and most of all to every mountain activity you can dream of! Even a SPA with outside hot springs to relax on Sunday 😜 But Cloud Citadel is also a beautiful community of people, inspiring, respectful, sharing good values, and it was super fun time. We were able to tackle a lot of work if needed but still have this holiday camp vibe, so great! 😉 Jelena and Joé on top of being two of the nicest people I know are playing a big part on keeping the place dynamic by organizing family meeting where everyone shares skills, and we plan activities for the week, ski, fat bike, cross-country, via ferrata, hikes, family dinner, movie nights, game nights, ... you never get bored 😁 It was totally one of our best coliving experience. We made friends, we had a fantastic time, we'll be back for sure!!! ✨
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.
Just go for it! Truly wonderful co-living home in charming Briançon Citadel settings. The house is decorated with such care and love - very comfortable office space and bedrooms with stunning mountain views. Joey and Jelena made an amazing job creating the space and community. Thank you!

I came for a month and ended up staying for 4... A fantastic mountain coliving and coworking place in a beautiful part of the Alps. During winter I was able to walk to the ski lifts but as my stay extended into Spring the surroundings were just as good for mountain biking and climbing. Joey and Jelena have really created a magical spot to hang out, make new friends and work. Highly recommended!

This coliving is just perfect! We came as a couple and originally booked a room for 2 months… we ended up staying for 3! Travellers for a few years, we had the chance to try a lot of different colivings before. And I have to say: this one is without any doubt one of the best you could find! As a digital nomad, it is sometimes hard to feel like home in the places you visit. Well, not in Cloud Citadel! The house is just so cosy! The light, the spaces, the style, the rooms, the town… everything is made for you to feel comfortable. The coworking space is one of a kind! The view is STUNNING, the chairs are ergonomic, the internet fast, and there is a very cute fireplace. You are really able to focus on your work there and get a lot done! But what makes this coliving very special is the community. The weekly family meeting makes a huge different: you get to know people very quickly & organise many activities: dog sledding, ski touring, hiking, fat biking… but also indoor activities such as board game nights or skillshares. The people we met there are so inspirational and open minded! We truly bonded, which is sometimes hard to do when you travel a lot! And if you are not French and you are worried about that… don’t be! Everyone is so welcoming that we only speak English (unless you want to learn French or any other languages that other people might speak!). Finally, special thanks to Jelena and Joé of course, the owners, who I believe are friends now! They care deeply about how every single guest feel in the house, and are very involved in their project, which will make your stay unforgettable!
Cloud Citadel Coliving. Great place to escape, great place to focus, great place to socialize! All you really need these days! I'm really looking forward to be back there in a summer time!
Extraordinary coliving house in the midst of the Alps. It is simply impressive what Jelena and Joé have built. The house is full of soul, located inside the old fortress of Briançon, equipped with a huge, beautiful kitchen, cozy shared spaces, and two coworking areas with good views of the mountains and even a fireplace. Rooms are incredible and well-thought - including the japanese-inspired dorm where I stayed. There is a welcoming, super-active and passionate community of co-workers. I managed to get a lot of work done while also enjoying skillshare sessions, ski touring trips, movies, boardgame nights, cooking, wine tasting... As for location, it doesn't get better than that. This region of the Alps is blessed with an inexplicably good weather. The Massif des Écrins is a paradise for hikers, climbers, cyclers and skiers, and Briançon itself is a remarkable historical city. I was in the house for 1.5 months and that was not enough. I will come back for sure.

THE BEST co-living place ever! You shouldn't doubt a second, just book your stay here. Location is incredible especially if you like mountains. Co-working space is great, community is amazing, bedrooms are super comfy. My favourite co-living in the world so far! If you like hiking, skiing, rock climbing or just spending sunny days in the nature, this place is definitely for you.
