Well placed for canyoning, rafting, mountain and road cycling, a high-ropes course and summer luge at Puy St Vincent and of course lots of beautiful walks in the stunning valleys nearby. The chalet has every gadget you could imagine: the kids loved the cinema room & wifi, while the terrace provided ample space for eating, relaxing and playing. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended for a luxurious summer retreat!

It was situated in the centre of Briancon close to all amenities. The apartment itself was clean and more spacious than I felt the photographs portrayed. We would definitely stay here again

                                                                                          5 of 5

The ski-lift is a five minute walk away but ski and boots can be left in lockers in the rental shops next to the lift. Apartment is right next to the central road with plenty of bars and restaurants. View from the terrace is spectacular. To be recommended.
