Briancon Serre Chevalier Ski Apartment



Updated: 22-Nov-2016
Ski Apartment in Briancon, Serre Chevalier, France - Next to Ski Lift and River - Ideal for Winter and Summer Sports

The apartment has been recently extensively refurnished and equipped and has been redecorated in May 2014. It is bright, airy and easy to keep sorted. The apartment can sleep 8 but has only one bathroom and toilet so is probably better suited to between 4 and 6 people. It is an excellent location for skiing being next to a fast cabin ski lift with ski hire, lift pass and ski school all within the same building as the apartment. Serre Chevalier is an excellent ski resort, regularly rated as one of the best in France and is great value for money. In the Summer, Spring and Autumn it is a good base for all manner of Alpine activities - walking, white-water, climbing and mountain biking. The lifts are open for many of the summer months to allow easy access to high alpine paths and downhill mountain bike trails. If you choose to base yourself in Briancon you have all the facilities of a tourist town and you also have direct lift access to the mountains.

We don't accept direct booking via Owners Direct as we want to be sure you have chance to ask questions about the flat, local area and the best travel options. We would rather make sure you had the right apartment for your holiday. We are not a business so if there is a better option that would make your stay in Briancon more enjoyable then we are happy to establish that by some direct contact. So please email or phone before booking. Have a look at the film of the apartment on this website - it is a great way for you to see how the apartment looks and the equipment available to you. We take payment by bank transfer, cheque or Paypal - all secure methods. We have been renting the apartment on Owners Direct since 2008 so you can book with confidence knowing we have an unblemished record of dealing with our holiday renters.

About the Owner

Mick and Anne - we have skied in Serre Chevalier for 30 years. We love the mountains, the locals, Briancon and the blue skies. We are both from Leeds (school romance !) and have twin boys now in their early 20's. We now live near the Yorkshire Dales and have semi retired from our career's of policing and teaching.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to say we had a wonderful week, the apartment was perfect! Michel was great- he couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Tim K

Apartment was magic, just what we needed. The kayaks went straight into the ski locker area for safe keeping and the apartment was perfect. Michel was a super guy, very friendly and helpful. Mark L

Just back from 2 superb summer weeks in the Briancon area. The apartment was well situated for both town and cable cars and well equipped with new furnishings/kitchen units etc. Mike H

We had a fantastic time on holiday last week and your apartment is lovely. The village itself is lovely and we were very lucky with the weather. I will recommend the resort and the apartment to all my friends. Aly R

We had an amazing 7 days with perfect skiing conditions, glorious sunshine and wonderful pistes. A special mention for Michel who was so helpful from the outset. Alan T

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Great location, near to the Porel ski lift. The flat is a few floors about the ski hire shops and close to a number of bars and restaurants. The supermarkets were only a short walk. We walked each morning to the Boulangerie for fresh bread and croissants. Private parking is ideal and the fact that bedding and cleaning was included helped both with packing and work at the end of the holiday. Michel & Denise on site spoke very good english and were a great deal of help with local information. The flat was well equipped avoiding the standard 6 of everything and had ample pots and pans. Contacting the owner was easy and payment was no issue.

From the Owner

We chose our apartment as it was high up with great views, south facing and was at the end of the block so it has windows on 3 sides letting in lots of light. Skiing is hard enough without lugging loads of kit via cars and buses to get to the slopes. We are next to the main access lift and can ski back to the flat !

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Turin at 75 Miles Nearest Barpub : L'Auberge do Prorel at 100 Metres Nearest Golf : Montgenevre at 20 Kilometres Nearest Train : Briancon at 1 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Oulx, Italy (via Frejus Tunnel) at 20 Miles Nearest Restaurant : at 100 Metres Nearest Ski : Next to Prorel Gondola at 50 Metres Car: not necessary


In the summer the Guisane and Durance rivers provide plenty of whitewater opportunities. There are several Alpine lakes within easy driving distance.


The nearest airport is Turin (1.5 hours) but Grenoble, Chambery, Cuneo & Nimes (2 hours), Marseille (3 hours), Milan and Nice (4 hours) are good alternatives . Calais is 600 miles with 540 of this on the Autoroute. Briancon has an end of line train station (5-10 minutes walk from the flat) with an overnight sleeper service from Paris arriving 0830. A car is not necessary as the lift is next to the apartment and shops within easy walking distance.


The apartment is in the lower part of Briancon next to the Prorel ski lift and Guisane river. It is 15 minutes drive to Italy and the villages of the Sestriere region. The Ecrins National Park and the Queyras Regional Park border Briancon town. The Guisane and Durance rivers merge near the apartment and both have plenty of white-water possibilities. In the summer the ski shops directly below the flat rent out mountain bikes.

Further Details:

Briancon is the highest town in Europe and in July 2008 was awarded Unesco World Heritage status. The old town is a walled medieval citadel and the famous Vauban forts ring the town controlling the valleys to Turin, Gap and Grenoble. The apartment is in the modern part of town with all amenities close to hand. Unlike many alpine villages Briancon stays fully open after the ski season as it is an important regional town. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. A reasonable sized supermarket is 5 minutes walk and 2 hypermarkets are 5 minutes drive. There is an 'Aquapark' 5 minutes walk away and Mounetier Les Bains thermal spa (recently refurbished) is a short drive up the valley. There is horse riding, climbing, mountain biking and karting available within a few miles of Briancon.

The flat is also great for being close to the ski school meeting point, supermarkets, local bars and restaurants plus only a short walk (uphill !) to the Briancon Old Town which is lovely.
