Lovely host, beautiful apartment, perfect location!

5 of 5
My partner and I booked to stay here so we could enjoy a 10 day cycling holiday. The apartment fitted out requirements perfectly. It was as lovely as it looked in the photos. Clean, comfortable, quiet location and well equipt and offers safe bike storage. William and Dominique were also lovely hosts and did their very best to make us feel welcome. The apartment was well placed to cycle all the local Cols with the Lauterete on the doorstep as well as easy access to Col Du Izoard, Galibier and many others. Definitely comes highly recommended from us!

Superb apartment

5 of 5
As a family of five we had a lovely stay in Briancon. The apartment exceeded our expectations. 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.
