Well equipped warm comfortable chalet

5 of 5
This chalet is in a very quiet location in the middle of the valley !2 miles south of Briancon , its a great location for traveling around the Alps , which we did on our motorcycles. Don't let the airfoils put you off you look over it, its for gliders and we never heard a thing the week we were there. Muriel and Richard were very helpful with the booking despite the language barrier. Great holiday chalet in a nice location
