Make Holiday Rental Chalets in Saint-Chaffrey, France, Your Home Away From Home

The small town of Saint-Chaffrey is a perfect example of a little town in the French Alps. The town is at the foot of the Serre Chevalier ski resort, a vast ski area with all levels of skiing available. There is plenty of self catering accommodation in Saint-Chaffrey, where the chalets provide easy access to the mountain and can ensure that holidaymakers have an excellent time. Holidays in Saint-Chaffrey are about enjoying the winter wonderland of the French Alps in the winter, or the frontier to adventure that is available in the summer.

Things to do on Holiday in Saint-Chaffrey, France

The Serre Chevalier ski resort has 63 lifts and 2800m of ski slopes. Almost 700m of that is above the tree line, as well. This open space makes it a great place for snowboarders as well as skiers. However, in the summer, the whole area changes but is equally exciting. Four of Serre Chevalier’s lifts open for the summer season, making the mountain open for adventure walking and mountain biking. The mountain biking on Serra Chevalier is so good, they hosted the French National Championships here in 2008.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Saint-Chaffrey, France

Off the mountain, there is still plenty to see. The nearby town of Briancon is the highest city in Europe. It also boasts the 17th century “Fortifications of Vauban”. These are named after King Louis XIV’s military engineer Sebastien Le Prestre de Vauban (1633-1707) who designed them to defend against the Austrians. The fortifications are so impressive that they were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. The area is also host to a number of outdoor activities that are not related to the Serre Chevalier ski area. The town sits on the edge of the Ecrins National Park, which is an excellent place for ice climbing in the winter, but also kayaking or rafting, hiking and general adventuring over the summer months.

Weather in Saint-Chaffrey, France

The weather in any mountainous region is changeable, and the French Alps are no different. When going out on your adventures, be sure to take sufficient clothing for all eventualities. That said, the weather in the Alps is usually quite good. In the winter, it is cold enough to keep snow, but not uncomfortable. The highs in Saint-Chaffrey are just above freezing. In the summer, the weather is generally excellent, with highs reaching 27 degrees Celsius in mid-summer. The precipitation in both winter and summer is generally less than 70mm, and fewer than 12 days per month exhibit rain or snow. April has the most precipitation, but this can result in a longer ski season.

Avec ses plusieurs salles de bain, coins salon avec cheminée, il est très agréable pour l'après ski. Situé à 2 minutes en voiture de chantemerle, sans etre en station, il est très bien placé et proche de toutes les structures nécessaires pour profiter à fond comme nous du ski sur le domaine de serre chevalier. Jo nous a accueilli avec gentillesse, le chalet impeccable avec les lits faits et serviettes à disposition... un plus non négligeable avec les valises de sport d'hiver déjà bien remplies ! Une adresse à retenir.

Jacqueline and Bernard were very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed and explained bus system etc. to us. We are snowboarders so the walk to the bus stop or even to the gondola was not too bad but I think may be challenging in ski boots or with young children so a car would be beneficial. Would definitely go back!
