Wonderful base for cycling
We had a party of 14 staying at the chalet, with most of us riding in the Étape du Tour. It was a wonderful base for cycling. The garage gave us plenty of space to keep all of our bicycles and the chalet was well equipped. The location is perfect, just a 5-10' walk from the old city, where there are lots of bars and restaurants. Parking is ample, with room for three cars in the driveway and additional public parking on the street. Although the kitchen is quite small, everything is provided for preparing group meals. There is a second fridge/freezer, which was helpful. Highly recommended!
Spacious house right next to Briancon old city
We were a party of 7 people looking to base ourselves in Briancon area, for summer Via Ferrata week but with easy access to shops, restaurants etc. This house was perfect. Everyone had their own bedroom and each was spacious, clean and comfortable. Often, houses are advertised as having bedrooms which turn out to be living rooms or top of staircases. Not in this case! Alice has accurately described her property. The floors and walls are of concrete so very quiet in each room. The beds were made up with provided linen (often not the case in France). The kitchen is very well appointed with almost every gadget you could possibly need. It was pleasing that there were staples in the cupboard - salt, spices, oil etc. Some rental accommodations clear out the cupboards completely, including salt pot, which can be annoying. Who on earth travels with duvet covers or wants to buy a year's supply of salt for a week? Well done Alice! The sitting room is comfortable too. If you have children, there are other rooms for them to amuse themselves in - a separate sitting room and the attic room which has toys and a ping pong table. The free Wifi worked well.
The garden has a big cherry tree which happened to full of ripe fruit - mmmm.
The house is in very close proximity to Briancon fort town/city; just a couple of minutes walk through a pleasant park to reach the old city. Restaurants and cafes are abundant, and you can stagger home easily. For Via Ferrata people, we did 8 brilliant routes and all within less than an hour driving time. There is also the superb spa at Monetier les Bains to ease your aching muscles in the various thermal water rooms - very good value at 16 Euros for 2 hours.
The couple who manage the house are very nice and accommodating. We could not fault this rental and thought that it represented very good value for a large group.
This house is excellent. We have stayed there for the last three years and it is perfect for an activity holiday. The area has superb white water for kayaking and rafting, numerous Via Ferrata, mountain and road biking and of course the high mountains. The centre of Old Briancon is just a couple of minutes walk away - with its historic buildings, restaurants and shops. The house itself is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped, the garden being our dining room most evenings. Highly recommended, we hope to return.
Location charmante et très fonctionnelle idéalement placée au pied des remparts
Location charmante très fonctionnelle et très adaptée pour un groupe important. C'est la deuxième fois que nous venons dans cette location : nous apprécions les chambres très calmes, les 3 salles de bain ( nous étions assez nombreux), le salon et sa cheminée avec vue sur les remparts et les pistes, la cuisine hyper bien équipée et son grand coin repas, idéale pour les familles et les groupes. La salle de ping pong / TV au 2 e étage est un vrai plus, tout comme le sauna et la grande pièce de rangement ! La neige en grande quantité nous a permis de skier sur le magnifique domaine de Serre Chevalier. Nous reviendrons !
Nous avons retrouvé avec plaisir le gîte des remparts un an après notre dernier séjour.
Nous avons comme en 2017 passé un excellent séjour et profité des nombreuses activités de la région.
Tout simplement magnifique
Se réveiller dans le silence et découvrir la vue sur les remparts magnifiés par la neige ! Skier à Montgenèvre et déambuler dans la vieille ville de Briancon : nous avons adoré ce charmant chalet, confortable et très accueillant ... envie d’y rester
