The Claree valley : Filming location of "Alex Hugo"

Was the "Alex Hugo" series filmed near our hotel ?

The Claree valley : location where
The high Clarre valley where "Alex Hugo" was filmed

 

The Clarée valley is one of the main filming places of France 2’s hit series "Alex Hugo". Neither the valley nor the village of Lusagne exist but you will find similarities with our Clarée valley and our village of Névache ! More than a mere background, nature, and high mountains in particular, are practically a main character of the series. 

A lot of people ask, so this is the answer : yes indeed, the series was filmed very close to the Chalet d'en Hô. We are not allowed to show you images of the series here but we will tell you where to trek to see the shooting locations in the series :-)

Will you be enchanted by the mountains ? Who better than Samuel Le Bihan to tell you about it ?! "I am Breton, born into a family of fishermen. Water is my element. But I have discovered the mountains and fallen in love with them. The film is shot in the summer, at over 2 000 meters in altitude, in real high mountain conditions. The sun is strong and storms are violent. We’ve already been taken by surprise by snow storms a few times…"
