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 is well-equipped and spacious, with a stunning decor. The fireplace adds to the cosiness of the flat and the sound system is fantastic too. The location in the town centre in easy and convinient, with the skiing, nightlife and shopping all close to hand. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to spend a relaxing time in the alps. Ideal for a group of friends or a family.

Ideal in summer if you are biking, hiking or as we were motorcycling in the area. Big garage and boot and gear storage was excellent. Well equipped and maintained and would definitely book again. Terrace right outside the kitchen was ideal for soaking up the last of the sun and enjoying the views. 10 min walk down into town, 15 minutes back up !
