There are three ski stations in Serre-Chevalier and the flat is located 1km from Chantemerle and less than a 1km from Villeneuve which are the two largest stations in the resort

Guestbook comments from the owner

Merci pour votre mail: le séjour s'est fort bien déroulé et je dois souligner que votre appartement est à la fois très fonctionnel, très agréable et complet. Rares sont les locations où l'on a le sentiment en peu de temps de se sentir chez soi (à titre perso, je ne pouvais qu'apprécier un endroit où le propriétaire a les DVD de "crash" et "las vegas parano"!)



Parmi les (nombreux) points positifs:



- l'équipement très complet de l'appartement.

- le poële à bois (à la fois agréable et très efficace)



Parmi les (rares) points de progrès:



- prévoir peut-être une nappe (ou toile cirée) permettant de protéger la table au moment des repas.

- sur le parking, le stockage de la neige en haut (à côté de l'entrée) créé une couche de verglas sur la pente lorsque la neige commence à s'écouler, rendant difficile l'accès pour sortir du parking ou pour y entrer sans glissade.



Mais honnêtement, ces 2 points de progrès n'étaient pour nous que de simples détails face à tous les avantages proposés.



Vous remercierez également l'accueil très agréable de votre soeur.

Beautiful apartment near the slopes

  • 4 out of 5
The booking was easy and efficient. The owners where constantly available to answer all of our questions. Thank you so much for letting us stay at your Petit Bivouac. The apartment was well equipped...everything you could possibly need was there especially some great toys,books and dvds. The tv was small. There was a coffee maker but an expresso machine would've been even better. The fireplace was wonderful and the bedrooms are very big and comfortable...especially the beds. The apartment was fairly quiet except for when you would step out to get in your car you notice there's a cage full of dogs barking out of control. About the parking lot, it is located on a lower level than the road and you will need special tires or chains in order to get out when it snows.
Again, thank you so much for the hospitality! It was an unforgettable vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your good words regarding our Petit Bivouac, we strive to deliver excellent service and a pleasant stay to our customers. Regarding the dogs, this is new to us and although it does not affect us directly, we are working on resolving the matter, urgently.

We hope to have you back next year!

Kind regards

Ben

Séjour au Petit Bivouac

  • 5 out of 5
Pour la deuxième, nous avons passé une semaine au Petit Bivouac.
Le bilan de la semaine est toujours aussi positif.
L'appartement est grand, chaleureux et très bien équipé. Le service est au top et le confort au Rendez Vous.
A 5, la place ne manque pas du fait des 3 chambres et du grand salon-cuisine.
L'accès au départ des pistes de Villeneuve est très facile malgré le fait qu'il nécessite de prendre la voiture ou la navette.
On se sent bien dans ce cocon et on a déjà prévu de revenir l'année prochaine.

Great stay in Le Petit Bivouac

  • 4 out of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in the Petit Bivouac. The accommodation is very well fitted out, modern and clean. Nothing like so many ski apartments. It is on the main road running through the valley but there is no real road noise and access to the slopes is quick and easy (parking near the Aravet bubble was never an issue). There is a handy and pizza takeaway van next door so if you can't be bothered to cook or go out then good, cheap and quick food is right there.

Only negative was the noisy neighbours/thin walls upstairs. One morning we thought they must have been in with us but we moved bedrooms and didn't hear them again.

Overall highly recommended for the clean and modern set up that is so lacking in regular apartments. We really felt comfortable and at home straight away.

Great flat in Serre-Chevalier

  • 5 out of 5
The flat has been re-done recently and it shows! Super nice and cosy. A tasty blend of modern furniture, well equipped kitchen and good old wood. Nothing better than to start up the fire place after a day's skiing.
The flat was spotless when we arrived, nothing's missing in the kitchen, the bedrooms and bathroom are spacious enough and also very clean. The flat is also easy to clean at the end of the stay due to the tiled floor.

Location is quite central with regards to the skiing area in Serre-Che so ideal to vary it up during a stay. Good restaurants are a 10-15 minutes walk away and (very good) pizzas pretty much at the bottom of the stairs

All in all we had a great stay and would definitely recommend this chalet.

Would definately recommend.

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment comfortably accommodated four adults and one baby. It was very clean and well appointed and were impressed with the baby facilities made available (cot, high chair and bath).
The apartment is a short distance from shops, tourist attractions, and spectacular scenery. We had relaxing week long summer vacation in this apartment and would definitely recommend it to others.
We would also like to thank the owners for providing useful information prior to our stay ( which helped greatly when planning our trip) and for making available the selection of tourist brochures in the apartment.

Très confortable

  • 5 out of 5
Très bel appartement parfaitement conforme à l'annonce. Décoré avec soin et avec goût, cuisine très bien équipée. Tout est fait pour que nous nous sentions comme à la maison. Il a été très agréable de pouvoir faire une flambée le soir en rentrant du ski. Il est situé à moins de 2mn des remontées de Villeneuve qui offre par ailleurs un excellent encadrement pour les enfants. Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement.

Car: recommended

The flat is located at an altitude of 1400m, in the ski resort of Serre-Chevalier, one of the biggest ski resorts in France with over 250km's of slopes to challenge you in the winter.

There are three ski stations in Serre-Chevalier and the flat is located 1km from Chantemerle and less than 1km from Villeneuve which are the two largest stations in the resort.

In the summer there are plenty of outdoor activities to choose from including rock climbing, white-water rafting, paragliding or simply relaxing in the natural hot springs of Monetier-les Bains (open all year long).

Nearby is the historical town of Briancon (9km) which was recently classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Italian town of Turin is 120km away, a drive or train ride away for a day's excursion.

The flat is conveniently located near restaurants and shopping facilities.

To find out more about the resort of Serre-Chevalier, please ask us for the address.
