Make a Holiday Rentals Chalet in Serre-Chevalier, France, Your Home Away From Home

The high altitude ski-resort of Serre-Chevalier sits at between 1200m and 2800m in the Hautes-Alpes department and is one of France's biggest, and best, ski resort complexes. The whole resort is spread over several villages, including the town of Briancon, and the villages of Chantemerle, Le Monêtier-les-Bains and Villeneuve. It has some 250km of ski slopes, but there is little pre-built resort accommodation. Most accommodation for visitors to the area is to be found in privately rented self-catering chalets and apartments. In Briancon town, some well-furnished townhouses can offer great bases for your adventures in Serre-Chevalier, if you have transport.

Things to Do on Holiday in Serre-Chevalier, France

There are both winter and summer activities that can be undertaken at the well-equipped resort for your holidays in Serre-Chevalier. In the summer, mountain biking is an important draw, with MTB Championships being held here in years’ past. There are also facilities to help visitors take a huge number of fun sports: walking, climbing, rock climbing and kayaking, to name but a few. But it is in winter, as the snow thickens, that the largest number of visitors arrive. There are over 100 ski slopes, and 60 ski-lifts of various sorts - and both skiers and snow boarders make full use of these excellent facilities.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Serre-Chevalier, France

For those who want to strike out from their comfortable accommodation in Serre-Chevalier, and get away from the ski slopes, there is still a host of places to visit in the area. In the local village of Monetier-les-Bain, there are some relaxing thermal baths, that will help ease the aches and strains of all of that physical activity. The town of Briancon itself is absolutely fascinating, being a walled medieval citadel, with steep narrow streets, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you can shop, dine out, and soak up its unique atmosphere.

Weather in Serre-Chevalier, France

The weather in Serre-Chevalier, being over such a large area, and so mountainous, is notoriously unpredictable and subject to quick changes in a matter of hours. This makes accurate weather forecasts an absolute necessity, whether in the summer or winter, when you are out and about. Generally speaking, the Haut-Alpes region has very cold and snowy winters, with warmer summers, below the snow line. The Serre-Chevalier area is prized in particular for the large number of sunny days during the skiing season, whilst still having great snowy conditions.

Travel to Serre-Chevalier, France

The flight to Serre-Chevalier is best undertaken through the international Nice Cote D’Azur International Airport (NCE), with a transfer arrangement, or car rental, up to the resort. There are numerous cheap flights from the UK to Nice, with FlyBE, BMI Baby, Air France, British Airways and Jet.com all offering their services. Most UK airports will have a direct flight to Nice, for example Liverpool (LPL), Birmingham (BHX), Bristol (BRS), Edinburgh (EDI) and London Heathrow (LHR).

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.
