Leave Gap heading north on the N85 towards Grenoble. After 4km turn right onto the D944 and then the D13 to Ancelle, St Leger is 4km further.

The village does not have a campsite or aire, but as is usual in France, no objection is made to campers parking overnight on the car park.

St Leger boasts a small purpose built centre with restaurant, bar and small shop. This is a two or three minute walk from the car park.

Skiing is accessible virtually from the door of your van.

For anyone wanting extensive or extreme skiing, or a wild après ski scene, this resort is best avoided. Weekends are also best avoided as the resort is accessible to the towns and cities of the Mediterranean coast. If however you can be self sufficient for two or three day’s midweek, St. Leger can offer some excellent easy/intermediate skiing with the slopes virtually to yourselves and at a cost of a third of some of the larger resorts.
