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.

The apartment is absolutely gorgeous-beautiful wood floors, very well equipped and lovely and warm! There are stunning views of the mountains from the bedroom and kitchen and it was lovely and quiet in the appartment. The old town is fascinating-such an interesting area to explore. We visited in January and spent the week ski-in in different resorts that are close by. Would definitely recommend this as a place to stay and hope to be back again soon!

Did have wifi though this was not advertised. Large supermarket and shops within 5 minute walk. Ski`s could be left at ski shop next to lift for only 1 euro per day (they also did ski service for only 15 euro) Good skiing holiday in excellent location

                                                                                                      5 of 5

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.
