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

Excellent property in a lovely location

5 of 5
We used this property as a base for l'Étape du Tour and this property was very conveniently located over moments away from a fruit shop, corner shop and bakery with the nearest large supermarket only 5minutes away. The property itself is well decorated and furnished with a beautiful balcony to sit out on in the evening. The are a generous size with comfortable beds and all the amenities that you could need whilst on holiday. All in all a beautiful property that I'd thoroughly recommend staying in.
