Make Holiday Rental Chalets in Briancon, France, Your Home Away From Home

Briancon is a city with exceptional historical significance, which sits on the French side of the French/Italian border. The city is known to be the highest city in Europe, at 1,326m, and was an important junction for the road outward from Rome in ancient Roman times. The city was known as Brigantium, and the area is rich with history. It also has access to some excellent skiing, which makes it a perfect place to rent self catering accommodation in Briancon to enjoy the winter fun.

Things to do on Holiday in Briancon, France

Holidays in Briancon are active and exciting as the nearby resort has over 24km of downhill ski runs, serviced by 74 chairlifts. The ski area includes a whole 1430m of vertical ski area, with plenty of runs for both beginner and intermediate and better skiers and snowboarders. For those taking a day off the slopes, Briancon is full of history right on the chalet doorstep. The centre of the town contains the various “Fortifications of Vauban” (named after King Louis XIV’s military engineer Sebastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) who designed the fortifications), built in the 17th century to keep the Austrians out. These varied buildings and structures are so impressive they were established as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. In fact, the whole area is home to various medieval fortresses and citadels.

It was situated in the centre of Briancon close to all amenities. The apartment itself was clean and more spacious than I felt the photographs portrayed. We would definitely stay here again

It is nicely decorated. The rooms are comfortable (be aware of the feather pillows if you are allergic) the number of bathroom is impressive and they are all well equipped. We spent our time altogether around the fireplace in the main living room when the kids could play on the TV set in the other living room. The kitchens are fully equipped and allowed us to prepare great meals. Again a very nicely decorated house and chalet, in the pure mountain style. We enjoyed the sauna everyday and had plenty of room to put away our clothes and stuff. The surrounding of the chalet is just nice and quiet. Be aware that the pathway can be transformed in a mud road during the winter and if it snows. The garden is very large and offers a great view on the mountain. We spent a wonderful week over there.
