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 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.

It is a bit far from the town centre but as we hired cars from the airport this was not an issue at all. Besides, with the cosy fireplace, the tons of space and the always warm jacuzzi and sauna we did not need anything else! There were 8 of us, all adults, but the house would have been more than comfortable for 4 families with their children as well. Our host, Kathryn, was incredibly responsive and helpful along the way. She would contact us in advance to ensure we have all our queries answered. When we had questions she would respond instantly and in detail. She went out of her way to make sure our stay was troubleless and pleasant. We had a fantastic time, a huge thank you! I would highly recommend this property! Katerina
