Apartment Briancon is close to ski lifts, bars, restos, shops,and the ski slopes. Indoor secure parking is at 100m and costs about 22€/week but there is also a loading space outside and free parking close by.

If someone doesn't ski they are perfectly placed to enjoy the town without being secluded.

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.

This is an excellent base for skiing in Briancon!

  • 5 of 5

Delighted. Happy. Impressed. We spent a few nights in these tastefully decorated apartments in the heart of Briancon town centre and they absolutely ticked all the boxes. The location of these three stunning apartments is unbeatable: located in the heart of Briancon, a beautiful town with a good range of quality local amenities and facilities, the apartments are just a stone’s throw from the Serre Chevalier Ski lifts.

Every morning before snowboarding, we would sit together, eat breakfast and take in the beautiful views. The apartments are very spacious and well equipped, which makes them ideal for those, who are travelling in a group or with a family. Light and airy, each one of the apartments is tastefully furnished and boasts stunning views over the mountains across the valley.

I would like to thank the owners, who made us feel very welcome.

This is an excellent base for skiing in Briancon. We will certainly be back!

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a great last minute holiday. The apartment was everything we hoped for. It was situated in the centre of Briancon close to all amenities. The apartment itself was clean and more spacious than I felt the photographs portrayed. We would definitely stay here again
