Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Briancon region - Chalet de la Croix de Bois

4 bed apartment with fireplace, parquet, facilities, bay window, sun, terrace

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).

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • smoking allowed

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 Briancon region

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.

Good value comfortable chalet

  • 5 of 5

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.

Magnifique chalet, séjour parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans ce chalet où tout est fait pour notre bien-être, malgré le manque de neige de ce début de saison. Gilles est un hôte parfait qui s’est préoccupé de tout et nous a donné plein de bons conseils sur les nombreuses autres activités de la vallée (les Grands Bains, le karting, le refuge Napoléon, etc…) qui nous ont permis de profiter à plein de notre séjour. Serre Chevalier est aussi très bien équipée en neige de culture et nous avons skié tous les jours sur une neige très agréable. L’équipement du chalet est au top, TV dans toutes les chambres, console Xbox avec plein de jeux vidéos, de DVD, et de nombreuses BD. C’est notre deuxième séjour au chalet et nous avons aussi apprécié la présence nouvelle d’un beau babyfoot Bonzini (celui des bars !).

Vivement l’année prochaine !

Trés beau chalet

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un super séjour à Serre Chevalier et dans ce beau chalet,

avec toutes les commodités.

Très agréables soirées prés de la cheminée!!

Nous étions 3 familles soit 13 personnes, la pièce principale étant un peu juste quand nous étions à 13 en même temps, car nous avons des adolescents!

Je trouve juste dommage de faire payer les draps et les serviettes!

Owner's Response: Bonjour et merci pour votre gentil commentaire. Effectivement, le chalet est plus en mode confort jusqu'à 12 personnes, surtout quand la plupart de ces personnes sont des adultes ou grands ados. Nous avons créé le deuxième salon-salle de jeux/cinéma à l'étage justement pour permettre de ne pas saturer le salon principal et généralement, c'est très apprécié des adultes qui peuvent avoir leur tranquillité dans le salon principal devant un bon feu pendant que les enfants et ados s'éclatent dans leur espace avec le baby-foot ou les jeux vidéos.en faisant tout le bruit qu'ils veulent sans que ce soit gênant pour les adultes. Pour les draps, nous avons pris le parti de les proposer, mais pas de les imposer, de manière à ce que ceux qui souhaitent venir avec leurs propres draps ne soit pas pénalisés par un prix qui comprendrait d'office cette prestation, d'autant que parfois certains viennent à 6 ou 8 et non 12. Nous avons tiré nos prix au plus juste compte tenu de la qualité du chalet, par rapport notamment à certains "Chalets prestige" proposés dans la vallée à des prix variant entre 10 000 et 15 000 € pendant les grosses semaines d'hiver. Si vous nous faites le plaisir de revenir l'an prochain comme vous l'aviez envisagé, nous vous ferons bien volontiers un tarif "draps inclus". A bientôt, j'espère ! Bien cordialement, Gilles Bureau

Magnifique appartement dans chalet

  • 5 of 5

Très bel appartement spacieux bien agencé avec une décoration de bon goût. Tout a été pensé pour le confort des occupants, des équipements modernes dans un style montagnard ce qui donne un intérieur cosy.

Le seul petit défaut est peut-être l'absence des lits faits à l'arrivée lorsque l'on a pris la location des draps mais cela reste un détail au vu des prestations.

Owner's Response: Bonjour et merci pour votre message élogieux ! Concernant les lits, effectivement, nous souhaiterions pouvoir proposer cette prestation, mais il est compliqué de trouver du personnel sur place pour faire les lits dans la mesure où tous les départs et arrivées sont le samedi. Notre hôtesse d'accueil s'occupe aussi d'autres appartements et chalets, le ménage et l'accueil lui font des journées déjà bien remplies. Nous avons déjà discuté de pouvoir offrir cela à nos hôtes et le mettrons certainement en place à la prochaine saison, souhaitant tirer notre prestation de plus en plus vers le haut. J'espère que nous aurons le plaisir de vous recevoir de nouveau l'an prochain. Bien cordialement, Gilles Bureau

Location

Car: recommended

Do not miss the great deals of Serre Chevalier: Les Grands Bains de Monêtier, a relaxing thermal spa unique in the High Alps, with naturally hot water, springing up from the depth at 45oC (sauna Turkish baths, Jacuzzi, frigidarium - 14° baths, caldarium - 40° baths, body and face treatments, massages). The Hotel Alliey in the village of Le Monêtier-les-Bains offers massages, a spa and indoor and outdoor pool. Restaurant La Manouille, in the centre of Villeneuve: Bruno will offer you a sophisticated food made with local products, served with extremely good wines. Restaurant Le Loup Blanc in Chantemerle: gourmet menu, inventive food, mountain specialities and selected wines... in a chalet atmosphere, chic and relaxed. If you prefer staying at the chalet without having to worry about meals, do not miss the farmhouse of Les Guibertes, 300 metres away, where you can find lamb terrine, fillets of duck breast, home-made dishes (beef, couscous with spices, tajines etc.). Refuge Napoleon at the Izoard Pass: for an unforgettable evening with your children: climbing in a small train towed by a snowmobile, meal in the refuge with clogs on foot and incredible return in sledge (provided by the refuge), head-on and in the moonlight in a slope of 10 km! We can already hear your burst of laughter...
