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.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Briancon, France

There is also plenty of other outdoor and extreme sports to take part in, paragliding is popular in the area. The region is also a part of various cycling events, and quite often the Tour de France passes through the area.

In the summer, Briancon is wonderfully warm, with an average high of 27 degree Celsius in July and August. The winter months are understandably cooler, with highs just above freezing. Precipitation in the summer is under 70mm of rain each month over July and August. There is about the same in the middle of winter, as the snow falls.

Rustic charm and ideally located for the ski lift

4 of 5
Communication with Marie was great, we had easy access to the apartment on our first day, it was clean, plenty of warm bedding and had everything we needed. There was another family staying below us with a dog but we rarely heard them. Everything in the apartment worked for us, we stayed as 2 adults with 2 children and we were all very happy with it. Its a 4 minute walk to the ski lift and you have 2 supermarkets within a 4 minute walk also. We would recommend this place as an affordable and well located base for exploring the area.

An absolutely stunning location with all amenities close to hand.

Alesandro was most welcoming upon our arrival. A true gentleman! We where 10 cyclist on our first holiday away together, so we arrived with a lot of equipment. Alesandro let us use his lockable garage to store all our equipment in, so that eased our minds straight away. Chalet Le Verger Fleuri has excellent facilities throughout and is extremely well equipped. Alesandro has thought about the interior design of his property, this is clear to see. The interior of the property was very open planned and had a relaxed feel to it as soon as you enter the front door. I did particularly like the kitchen and all bathrooms were a treat to use, especially the showers. The views from the balcony out over Briancon are magnificent, that is all I can say. We left the apartment turning left towards Col's Lautaret/Galibier or right towards the Col d' Izoard or further afield into Italy. Morning croissants and restaurants for an evening meal where a two minute walk away, brilliant! Summing up our stay we all agreed that we couldn't have chosen a better location for our holiday! We will definitely stay again (if Alessandro will let us)... ;-) Thank you Alessandro for your very kind hospitality whilst we stayed with you.
