Three centrally located apartments all with three bedrooms sleeping from 6 to 22

Bright, modern & comfortable apartments ideally located close to Serre Chevalier Ski lifts and swimming pool/spa/ice rink complex (La piscine du parc 1326). They are perfectly situated in the heart of Briancon town centre. These modern 3-bedroom apartments boast panoramic views of the mountains, and the night sky.

All include stunning and spacious south facing terraces offering amazing views over the UNESCO forts and the Melezen, each terrace comes with outdoor furniture, BBQs, and sun shades.

Apartment Klimt and Buddha are 1st floor apartments, both with direct access on to their terraces.

Klimt contains 2 bathrooms one with bath/shower, 3 bedrooms: 2 double rooms and 1 bedroom with 2 lots of bunk beds sleeping 4 and an additional single pull out bed.

Apartment Buddha comprises 2 bathrooms, 3 double bedrooms plus a pull out bed.

Both apartments have bed settees in the lounge.

Apartment Maia is our latest apartment and is above the other two. Inside it is very cozy built into the eves of the building with the old beams showing. It contains 3 double bedrooms (2 with ensuite bathrooms and 1 contains a shower pod then separate WC opposite. Large velux windows boast views of the ski lifts and the UNESCO forts from every room, bedroom and bathroom. Maia also has internet, LED TV, French satellite TV and an awesome sound system. Bedrooms are relaxing with guaranteed views of the stars and constellations on a clear night.

All apartments have fully equipped kitchens including nespresso coffee machines, fondu and raclette sets.

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. This central location allows you to leave the car all week, and for your ski group to be independent and go skiing when they want, benefit from all the activities that are close by, and get home easily from bars, restaurants, Casino and supermarkets (don't worry if you forget the milk). If someone doesn't ski they are perfectly placed to enjoy the town without being secluded. Briancon is probably THE Sunniest ski resort in France and our giant picture windows and huge terraces are perfect to enjoy the snow, as well as making a snowman.

Our apartments include linen and towels plus cleaning with every week stay.

About the Owner

Ski enthusiast with 10 years in the Chamonix valley, moving to Briancon 5 years ago. Love to ski in the Serre Chevalier Valley with 220 km of pistes and great off piste descents and lots of tree runs. Briancon and the Serre Chevalier Valley offers so much for both sporting enthusiasts, and those who just want to relax. Sunshine 300 days a year makes Briancon one of the most sunny resorts in France - nice to have sun on your face.

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

Gorgeous, cosy apartment with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed apartment, cosy and bright with all mod cons. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners who made us very welcome. Would really recommend all three of these apartments for groups of friends holidaying together, especially with children. You can all have your own space but get together easily to eat and socialise in the evenings. We'll be back!

Lovely, modern and excellently equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

The manager was there on arrival and gave a quick but thorough intro to the apartment. The loft apartment is truly stunning, with views of the mountains from skylights providing loads of natural light. Three double bedrooms and three bathrooms meant no hanging around for a shower. well equipped kitchen and big dinning area. this apartment provided more than enough room for 5 of us. really well located for lists and also the several bars of the town centre, we'll definitely be back 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!
