Chalet Hibou

5 of 5
Chalet perfetto in tutto. Comodissimo per 10 persone. Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo. Nessun problema per la distanza dalle piste da sci perché esiste un ottimo servizio skibus. Very recommended.

Best Yet!

5 of 5
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!
