There are stunning views of traditional barns and churches over to the Ecrin and Queyras mountain ranges from the front of the apartment. The location has it's own parking although the local car park is just over 100 meters away for overflow parking. Beginner slopes which link into the main ski area are no more than 200m away and its a short 200m slide down to the main super fast chairlift into Puy Saint Vincent 1600. There's a bar tabac 200m one way and a small supermarket 200m the other. 3 ski shops are within easy reach as well as a couple of restaurants, laundry and the free bus service (in season) stops close by. There really is everything you need within easy reach . Outside is a full length balcony with bench to take in the evening sunshine after a day on the slopes or out biking. Plus a convenient locked kit room which will take skis/bikes or whatever outdoor kit you bring. The inside has everything you need for 9 people although we find it such good value we hired it with just 4 of us so we could have loads of room . 2 double rooms and two bathrooms are great if you want a comfortable and quiet holiday for just two couples and there is a third room with single and bunk bed and a double sofa come double bed in the front room so you can sleep 9 if you want. If you don't know Puy Saint Vincent - it's a fabulous resort with the incredible good value Galaxy ski pass covering Puy and giving a day each in Serre Chevalier, Montgenevre, Sestriere, Pelvoux and usually La Grave/Les 2 Alpes and Alp D'Huez. However the last 3 weren't possible this year due to road damage on the other side of the Col de Lauteret. You'll need a car to access these resorts - we've driven over before but this year got an Easyjet flight to Turin and then hired a car for the easy 2 hour drive in to Puy. If you don't mind organising your own holiday - the logistics of getting here are as easy as any main stream Northern Alpine resort but far better value. PSV is as much a summer resort as a winter resort with world class kayaking down in the valley, a number of Tour de France climbs for the road bikers and local MTB trails in the resort. The local climbing and mountaineering is some of the best in the Alps. We've stayed at a number of locations in the valley but I guess you can tell this is our favorite :-)

The location is great, close to restaurants and bars and with garage parking across the road. I would recommend this for a stay in Briancon with easy access to ski slopes and local resorts.

                                                                                                    We were made very welcome from the moment we arrived. 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.
