I stayed in the Klimt apartment for 5 weeks during January/February 2017 during a skiing holiday in Serre Chevalier. It was first rate. The apartment was very well equipped, warm, spacious and comfortable - much better than the usual ski 'rabbit hutch'. Klimt was well situated being a 5 minute walk from the ski gondola in Briancon (and the adjacent Mont Prorel bar with 15.00 to 18.00 happy hours prices of 3 euros a pint). There was a supermarket about a minute's walk away and another some 5 minutes walk. The historic walled part, Vauban, was some 15 minutes walk away in the other direction up the hill. Kathryn the agent was excellent and very helpful. In short I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment.

Beautiful appartment in an amazing location

5 of 5
We had an amazing week staying in Briancon. The apartment is absolutely gorgeous-beautiful wood floors, very well equipped and lovely and warm! There are stunning views of the mountains from the bedroom and kitchen and it was lovely and quiet in the appartment. The old town is fascinating-such an interesting area to explore. We visited in January and spent the week ski-in in different resorts that are close by. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay and hope to be back again soon!

very good apartment at the end of the village

4 of 5
The apartment is in excellent order and my son and I had an excellent week here and the owner Michel is very friendly and helpful. the lounge kitchen diner is ideal for 2 but a little tight on space for 4 and the lack of a kettle was a little bit of a surprise although the halogen hob boils a saucepan of water really quickly. It is well stocked and the beds were very comfortable. I would not hesitate to book again with the shuttle bus stopping right outside your door!! Thank you very much!!
