  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the Klimt apartment for 5 weeks during January/February 2017 during a skiing holiday in Serre Chevalier. It was first rate. The apartment was very well equipped, warm, spacious and comfortable - much better than the usual ski 'rabbit hutch'. Klimt was well situated being a 5 minute walk from the ski gondola in Briancon (and the adjacent Mont Prorel bar with 15.00 to 18.00 happy hours prices of 3 euros a pint). There was a supermarket about a minute's walk away and another some 5 minutes walk. The historic walled part, Vauban, was some 15 minutes walk away in the other direction up the hill. Kathryn the agent was excellent and very helpful. In short I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment.

Beautiful, cosy and spacious apartments

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Briancon for a ski trip and loved the apartment. It is well-equipped and spacious, with a stunning decor. The fireplace adds to the cosiness of the flat and the sound system is fantastic too.

The location in the town centre in easy and convinient, with the skiing, nightlife and shopping all close to hand.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking to spend a relaxing time in the alps. Ideal for a group of friends or a family.

Great Place convenient, cosy and closed to the slo

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Apartment Klimt in Briançon. The flat is decorated tastefully, the mountains in the rear, create the perfect backdrop. Apartment Klimt is spacious and we had no problem cooking and dining at 9 persons.

The fireplace added to the warmth and cosiness of the apartment.

Everything we would need was there. It's very well located in the centre of the charming town nearby the market and the restaurants, and most important it is very close to the slopes and to Serre Chevalier. Really great accommodation. Can't wait to return next year.

Super apartment, great location, stunning valley

  • 5 of 5

This trip was our second to Briancon / Serre Chevalier but the first in the newly-finished apartment Maia. It's a really top quality place with an incredibly convenient location minutes from the Prorel lift and with 'across the road' access to lots of restaurants and bars. The apartment itself has a nice big living space and three lovely ensuite bathrooms (great for families). We're definitely coming back next year!
