The House

Coliving in the Highest Town of France

The UNESCO World Heritage old town has been fortified by Vauban in the 17th century but whose history goes back to 2,500 years with initial settlers in this region, the Celts. Now, it’s an ideal place to wander in colorful narrow streets, discover cafes and restaurants, or visit small galleries, bookstores and shops. Cloud Citadel is located at the edge of the fortifications with unobstructed views down the valley. With high ceilings, wooden parquets and marble mantels, the house is full of history. It has been built between in 1823 and it is the former residence of the military governor of Briançon.

We renovated the house to make it comfy, functional and to add a modern touch to it, while keeping its historical character. The bedrooms are on the first and third floors, and the whole second floor is dedicated to common spaces, including a shared fully equipped kitchen, a dining room with two large tables, a chill room with comfy couches, two coworking spaces with ergonomic chairs and soon a skype room. The house also has a washing room on the first floor (washing machine + tumble dryer), and a big workout/yoga room on the third floor.

Coworking

We have two big coworking rooms (one with a fireplace 🔥) and one Skype room, for a total of 15 working stations. They are all equipped with ergonomic chairs and warmly decorated. Three screens and one printer are at your disposal to use for free. If you want to relax your eyes or refresh your mind for a couple of second or minutes, just look outside, the mountains are always there to comfort you. And of course, you don’t have to work there. You can work from wherever you feel like!

Fully Equipped Kitchen

We’ve put a lot of thought into the kitchen to make it as practical as possible, so that everyone can claim a little spot when prepare their food, whether in a on the peripheral counters or the central kitchen isle. Each time our guests ask for an utensil we don’t have, it doesn’t last long before we order it. Our last purchases were two round buckle baking trays, multifonctional food processor and a cocktail shaker kit.

Commons Areas

Our dining room is equipped with big wooden two tables that we usually put together for family dinner. It is here that we plan the activities each monday on the whiteboard. The chill room is quite multifunctional, people work, read, chat, play games, watch movies or just nap there! The yoga/workout room is on the 3rd floor and is equipped with an exercise bike, a pull-up bar, yoga matts and a bunch of sport items. We also have a laundry room on the 1st floor.

Japanese-Inspired Dorm

Neptune is the room we are the most proud of. We built mezzanines in wood to create four sleeping pods/cabins with closable curtains to ensure privacy for everyone. Each pod is equipped with a small lamp, a usb socket, a nightstand/locker and extra storage.

Bathrooms

Yeah sure, bathrooms are bathrooms, but we are proud of them because we designed them, and built them from almost scratch learning on the fly. Thank you Youtube! There are one common bathroom on the 1st floor, two on the 3rd floor, one common toilet on the 2nd floor and two ensuite bathrooms (and a lot of hot water capacity).
