The spaciousness and comfort of the apartment was worth not being slopeside for, saying that it is only a very short walk to the cable car in Briancon or a 10 minute drive to Chantemerle cable car anyway. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything you needed for self catering. The bedrooms and sofa bed were all very comfortable with linen and towels provided. The open plan living area was great for evenings after a day out skiing. Shops, bakers, butchers, bars and restaurants are all within a few minutes walk. You can walk up into the old town of Briancon in 15 minutes for stunning views and even greater choice of restaurants. I would highly recommend this apartment and Olivier was extremely friendly and helpful.

The appartment is beautifully appointed with virtually everything you could need. The master bedroom is very comfortable, lounge/dinner, whilst not large is also great with dinning table that extends to sit six - only four chairs, but I'm sure if needed the owners downstairs would lend you more! There is also a sofa bed downstairs and two beds in the loft bedroom - ideal for youngsters - steep ladder/stairs and low ceiling! They also have another room across the landing that we understand has a double bed and ensuite. We did not use it and was not included. The heating was flexible - ignore the thermostat on the wall - it is just there to fool you it still works!!!! Each radiator has it's own temperature controls. Microwave/oven/grill worked well once we worked out the controls - the owners happily provided the english instructions. Dishwasher Access to the Serre Chevalier valley and Briancon is easy and there are two big supermarkets within a short drive in Briancon. Geant and Carrefour Market. Next to Geant there is also a large sports shop and two adjacent to Carrefour Market. There is a Carrefour City as well! Ski and Boot store available and parking on the drive, We definitely recommend the appartment. It took us 10 hours to drive directly back to Calais.
