We are located in the heart of one of the most popular free flying destinations in the world. The owner, Serge, has been flying hang-gliders and paragliders in and around Saint Pierre de Chartreuse for over 25 years. Our local knowledge & depth of experience is unrivalled in the region. For many years, groups of pilots have stayed at Villa Marie-Louise and enjoyed the superb flying conditions on offer in this corner of the Alps. The highlight of the flying season is the Coupe Icaire which takes place in mid/late September.
If you are a qualified pilot and are keen to fly in this region, then you would be hard pushed to find a better base from which to explore. Right behind Villa Marie-Louise at the top of the gondola lift, there are two launch sites facing west and south - 'La Scia'. It's a great launch to start an XC flight from and right on your doorstep. There is a good road that goes right up to launch. You can see more details about La Scia and other local sites by clicking on the site names to the left.
If you are organising a flying trip to the Alps with friends, get in touch and talk to us about your plans. There are many ways we will be able to help you make the right decisions. We have a 12 seater minibus to take you to launch and co-ordinate retrieves, if that is needed, and we can offer solid advice about local flying conditions throughout the summer months.
Check out our packages to the right for weekly deals through the summer.
For guests that have not flown before and wish to experience the joy of free flight, we offer tandem flights right here in Saint Pierre de Chartreuse - flying from La Scia. Let us know in advance if this is something that you would like to do while you are here, and we'll make it happen for you.
