Welcome in Le Chalet de la Croix de Bois in Serre Chevalier, made of local larch and flagstones, flooded with sun all day long and absolutely quiet! The wide bay windows of this contemporary but traditional chalet and the large terrace (27 m²) will allow you to enjoy it all year long... If the weather is bad, a great fire in the fireplace will warm you in a comfortable and welcoming setting, while your children can make all the noise they want in the dormitory, without disturbing you. Living room with Mezzanine, a plasma screen TV and a Xbox (bring your games and movies!). Keep in touch with your work if needed (as little as possible!) thanks to the Wi-Fi internet connection. All mod cons: iPod/iPhone dock, Nespresso coffee machine, induction hobs. (Please note that you can rent other apartment in the chalet for 10 persons, reference 956437).

About Gilles Bureau
I'm keen of ski, mountain and architecture and this chalet took us two years of work with joy and enthusiasm. We hope you will find as much happiness as us during your stay in the chalet.
Gilles Bureau purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Gilles Bureau chose Le Monêtier-les-Bains
We always come to Serre Chevalier, even if we know many other stations in Savoie, Haute-Savoie and Hautes-Alpes. Our family settled in Fressinet and we have many friends that have chosen Serre Chevalier for their second home. The station of Serre Chevalier is the largest and the better equipped of South Alps. No more waiting time in the aerial lifts thanks to an output unequalled in the area. 250 km of slopes and an extraordinary off-piste domain (non-professional). The sun shines almost all year long and there are breathtaking landscapes.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our chalet, designed by a renowned architect, was conceived to enjoy the exceptional sunshine of the region at most. 9 meters of bay windows and panoramic windows in the living room allow to enjoy it all day long. Maximal comfort: wooden floor, a fireplace, underfloor heating, design and warm furnishings, Wi-Fi, Nespresso coffee machine, Bose sound dock, television and Xbox will delight both you and your children. The dormitory - game room is perfect for your children to have fun while you will quietly rest in front of the fireplace with a good book or a glass of wine and a terrine bought at the farm of Les Guibertes.

Gorgeous, homely and modern chalet
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this fabulous chalet! No negatives at all. Gilles was very helpful and approachable when booking. Everything was clean, the kitchen was very well stocked, the views were beautiful.. all in all 10/10 😊
Thanks a lot for those kind words, Davinia !
I hope to see you again very soon and wish you a good return back to work...;(
Fabulous, fully equipped chalet!
We had 8 adults and 6 kids, there was plenty of room and everything we needed for our week with you. Just need to be aware, one of the doubles is a sofa bed in with the two singles, with the 4 mezzanine beds upstairs. All said though, lovely chalet with good parking / buses to main lifts. Warm, comfortable and everything you need for a friends and family holiday! Would highly recommend.
Hi Debbie !
Thanks for your kind review.
You're right to precise this for our next guests. We have 3 independant double bed rooms, and one large dormitory (25 sq.m) with a mezzanine, six single beds and a sofa bed. Also 3 bathrooms and 3 toilets.
Sorry that I couldn't meet you up there but sometimes we have to work...;)
I hope I'll see you soon. Maybe in summer ?
Good value comfortable chalet
The chalet is in Le Freyssinet, approximately halfway between Monetier-les-bains and Villeneuve. There is a ski shuttle bus stop around 100 metres from the chalet but it is probably best to have a car if you don't want to walk uphill in skiboots! The shuttle is free for skiers and 4 euros otherwise. The chalet kitchen is well equipped with a hob, oven, fondue set, raclette machine, dishwasher and microwave. We didn't bother eating out in the evening so were pleased that there was sufficient equipment for cooking. There are small supermarkets in Villeneuve and Monetier and larger ones in Briançon (which is on the way if you are driving in from Turin). There is a good butcher by the church in Monetier where we bought a rotisserie chicken, excellent sausages, steaks and casserole beef. Beds are comfortable and the area is quiet so you'll get a good night's sleep. Top tip - you need to switch on the kitchen tap to make the dishwasher work! If you're not skiing there is a nice snowy walk along the valley floor in either direction alongside the nordic ski route. The municipal pool in Villeneuve is new, quiet, has a lovely view of the mountains and only costs 4 euros (open afternoons only). If you just want a swim rather than spa it is a much better bet than the Grand Bains in Monetier. If you're a beginner skier probably better to have lessons in Villeneuve rather than Monetier. Monetier has nursery slopes but no green runs and only a chair lift up to the blues (which could be a bit challenging for first time skiers). Having said that there were 3 beginners in our group who all had a great week. Dealing with the owner was easy and the security deposit was returned promptly. Would definitely recommend.
Thanks, Julie for you kind comment ! I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay in the chalet and hope to welcome you again next year !
We stayed at the chalet for 4 nights in July (12 adults). It was perfect for our needs, and very well presented, very much as you see in the photos. The chalet is located in a very peaceful location in a small village (no shops) just about 10km from Briancon. There is a supermarket, boulangerie etc very close (about 2km). The area is great for walking, hiking, cycling (& skiing in winter). The owner was very helpful with all our arrangements.
NB: The dormitory room with 6 beds is not as spacious as we had thought - especially on the mezanine area. It was very tight for 6 adults but it be would be fine for 4. (Also the layout of the chalet would be perfect for three couples with children (where the children share the dormitory room).
Superbe logement !
Logement conforme aux description, très fonctionnel et très agréable. Superbe terrasse. Le propriétaire est de bon conseil et toujours disponible.
Idéalement situé entre Salle les Alpes et Monêtier les bains : Un séjour parfait... Même le soleil était au RDV...
Une vue imprenable sur les montagnes où vous n'avez qu'une envie : Prendre un bon petit déjeuner et voir se lever le soleil et être prêt pour l'apéro pour le voir se coucher.
Le chalet est exceptionnel à la décoration raffinée ; parfaitement fonctionnel avec des équipements au TOP. Les enfants ne sont pas oubliés : Ils bénéficient d'un "dortoir" (très grande chambre pouvant accueillir 6 personnes) avec baby foot, grand écran, Xbox, Wii, DVD etc.... un petit paradis sur terre (comme me souffle ma fille).
Tout est bien pensé au point de se sentir chez soi dès que vous arrivez.
J'y retournerai sans hésiter...
