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.

A great bakery is literally just around the corner (you can smell fresh bread in the morning). We used the apartment as our base for a great ski week with the cable car being a short 10 min walk. Great value and recently decorated to a high and modern standard. True to the photos and Olivier a great host. Would highly recommend.

Avec ses plusieurs salles de bain, coins salon avec cheminée, il est très agréable pour l'après ski. Situé à 2 minutes en voiture de chantemerle, sans etre en station, il est très bien placé et proche de toutes les structures nécessaires pour profiter à fond comme nous du ski sur le domaine de serre chevalier. Jo nous a accueilli avec gentillesse, le chalet impeccable avec les lits faits et serviettes à disposition... un plus non négligeable avec les valises de sport d'hiver déjà bien remplies ! Une adresse à retenir.

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.
